The Merchant of Venice SPA Kempinski
Sensorial journey to the Orient
The Merchant of Venice, has opened its first SPA within the exclusive Venetian resort San Clemente Palace Kempinski, located on the private island of the same name just a few minutes by boat from St. Mark's Square. The Merchant of Venice SPA is an exclusive wellness area offering treatments and massages with oils specially created by The Merchant of Venice following ancient oriental recipes imported over the centuries into the lagoon city by its merchants.
The spa covers two floors of a nearby building of the hotel reopened in 2016 under Kempinski, the historic luxury hospitality brand. In its 380 square metres it accommodates a wet area - Finnish sauna, steam bath and experience showers - a relaxation lounge, a wellness area and four treatment rooms.
Each treatment is carefully designed to lead the body and mind to discover the Venetian perfumery tradition.
The body treatments include aromatherapy massages based on essential oils including sandalwood, bergamot and lavender, designed to awaken and harmonise the body's vitality thanks to their many properties inspired by ancient recipes of cosmetic secrets, and the Rosa Moceniga Massage, which captivates with its rare and precious notes.
Among the facial treatments, the luxurious Splendor Antiage treatment stands out, based on 11 24-carat gold leaves handmade by Mario the beater and applied to the face to make it glow with its own light.
It will also be possible to indulge in a pure luxury experience in the SPA Suite, an intimate and exclusive retreat for two, entirely dedicated to regenerating body and mind.

Full relax in the heart of the city
Pura City SPA is a regenerating space that offers moments of relax and sparkling pleasantness, located inside the Cà di Dio hotel, the new exclusive hotel in Venice of the VRetreats collection, inaugurated in 2021 and the result of a long research work conducted by Patricia Urquiola's studio, which followed the interior design project and the artistic direction.

The jewels in the crown are the exclusive Blue Tea Ritual, a moisturising and antioxidant treatment that harnesses the benefits of this prized type of Chinese tea, which is served at the end of the treatment, and the iconic Splendor Antiage treatment.
