A Grande Venetian Hotel

When I first saw the Aman Grande Canal hotel in Venice, its elegant magnificence took my breath away. I cannot imagine a more grande getaway! 

Just look at the amazing frescoes, chandeliers, fireplaces, and--of course, views of the canals, the hotel has. Every guest room is different, with unique decorative features. Contemporary furniture from the likes of B&B Italia beautifully contrasts against the old school glamour of the interiors.

A library stocked with books on design and history, along with two dining rooms, a bar, and a games room, offer guests ample spaces to relax. 

The hotel also boasts a good deal of outdoor space, including a private garden just above sea level, as well as a terrace garden overlooking the terra cotta rooftops of Venice. 

My daydreams of going to Venice just got even more romantic and extravagant!
