"The late-Renaissance Palazzo Papadopoli is a Casanova fantasy of sweeping staircases, marble fireplaces and frescoed reception rooms."

"The sense of space (along with discreet service) makes guests feel they own the palazzo, if only for the duration of their stay."

"Amanresorts has got the balance just right at this deeply calming sanctuary."

Condé Nast Traveller, UK
on Aman Canal Grande Venice, May 2014

"In the morning, you have to climb to the terrace to take in at a glance the view of this lacustrian town anchored on the water between the ocean and the lagoon. An incredible view that disrupts the emotions with its scope and the play of light at sunrise."

"The ultimate appeal of Aman lies in its intimate and permanent companionship with history and its roots in the present.", France
on Aman Canal Grande Venice, March 2014

"The Aman Canal Grande is a wonder, a once in a lifetime, just let's thank our lucky stars that it's our lifetime wonder. Aman is always a touchstone and its extravagance is delicious ..."

"The Palazzo Papadopoli reinvented as an Aman is the most exciting thing to happen to Venice since Canaletto."

"Exquisite linen, exquisite Olivia Richli, an old Aman hand as the general manager, the world's best boat - the Aman - as a Riva runabout, lovely Japanese garden restaurant, gobsmacking piano nobile with an exceptional breakfast. Eat the art. And - and this is a big and - the ACG is open at Christmas, unlike every other grand Venetian hotel. Yes, yes ... beyond fabulousness."

Vanity Fair, UK
on Aman Canal Grande Venice, March 2014

“…This time, I’ve come to check out the new hotel from Amanresorts, a group I adore. As I glide over the lagoon by train, on a winter’s day so crisp and clean and perfect that even the rubbish bins seemed gilded, I couldn’t help but wish I was deep in the gaudy, intoxicating chaos of Naples instead. Or settling down to a typically robust Roman lunch. But stepping out of the Grand Canal and onto the private jetty of Aman Canal Grande, something seems different. Better.“

“Service is polished and smiling. My room is a different planet from the usual Venetian faded grandeur. This is a place where historic meets current, where busts and intricately checkered marble floors sit beside resolutely Modernist furniture. It works – the contemporary simplicity offering contrast to the gloriously over-the-top Baroque brilliance.”

“Although the 24-room hotel is full, I have a feeling I am the only guest in the place and that the whole staff is there for me, and me alone. Within these thick walls, you’re miles removed from the bustle of Venice, yet very much part of it too.”

“The Aman has a warmth and character that’s impossible for a new hotel to manufacture, and that’s because this hotel is also a home: The magnificent Palazzo Papadopoli has been in Count Giberto Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga’s family for generations, and he still lives on the top floor with his wife and three of their children.”
