The historic property on the Grand Canal becomes even more in step with modern times and cements its position as an avant-garde hospitality player.
The St. Regis Venice has become Italy’s first hotel to be equipped with an electric boat charging station.
Located in water, the mooring pole is made from durable, sustainable material and is designed to blend in seamlessly with the hotel’s classical façade topped with private terraces. In addition to powering the hotel’s resident electric Laneva water limousine operated by Blitz Exclusive, the designated e-station is available to The St. Regis Venice guests arriving by their own electrically powered boats.
“A sunset cruise down the Grand Canal is an iconic experience that, for many, epitomises Venice. With our privileged location right on the Grand Canal, we see it as our responsibility to help keep our famed waterways pristine by starting Venice on a path to becoming a zero-emission city,” said Patrizia Hofer, General Manager of The St. Regis Venice. “The St. Regis Venice prides itself on being a leader in innovation who embraces new technology to effect change that will benefit locals, tourists and the planet”.
In the hotel’s modern rooms and suites dappled with Venetian light and filled with contemporary art, guests will discover a storied past that is respected and merged with modernity.
Just as the city itself has to evolve to remain relevant, the hotel, with its avant-garde sensibilities, is a symbol of continuous evolution.
To support the hotel’s environmental efforts while making the most of the city’s scenic waterways, guests can charter a Laneva e-boat for a zero-emissions, private tour without compromising on style and comfort. Made of sustainable, noble and natural materials, all Laneva vessels feature high-end finishes and the latest smart technology for cruising experiences that offer the ultimate comfort while protecting the canals from harmful emissions.
The St. Regis Venice boasts 130 rooms and 39 suites, some with private terraces, offering unparalleled views over the city, a formal rose garden and direct access to the Grand Canal. The atmosphere of glamour spills over to the restaurants and bars, where locals and travellers mingle over expertly mixed cocktails and exquisitely rendered food. At Gio’s Restaurant and Terrace guests will find an unexpected haven in the midst of Venice’s contemporary landscape, while the atmospheric Arts Bar boasts a collection of drinks that celebrate the oeuvre of artists who were inspired by the city’s ethereal beauty to produce some of their best work.
