Expert review of Ca' Nigra Lagoon Resort

Contemporary design meets 18th-century elegance in this boutique with Grand Canal-side garden.

Inside an 18th-century palazzo on the Grand Canal, Ca’ Nigra offers a (not always convincing) blend of contemporary design and historic elegance. The formal garden facing on to the Grand Canal – almost unique in Venice – is utterly charming.

Location: 

Despite its name, Ca’ Nigra is not on the Venetian lagoon (and it’s not a resort, if for you that word conjures up rows of beach umbrellas… ): a little downstream and across the canal from the railway station, it’s set slightly back from the Grand Canal, with a rose-filled garden separating the palazzo from the water. Major sights are a half-hour hike or a scenic vaporetto ride away, but the immediate area conceals any number of lesser-known gems.

Bedrooms: 

Room decor ranges from minimalist-contemporary to fairly classic Venetian with the odd twist; many of the 22 rooms and suites have lovely oriental antique pieces. Ground floor rooms can be very noisy as kitchen staff rattle about preparing breakfast. Ultra-modern see-through chrome-and-glass bathroom cubicles – most with wonderful huge showerheads but a few with Jacuzzis – are fun… though they left me craving a little privacy. The Loggia suite with its balcony is particularly pleasant.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast is served, weather permitting, in the garden overlooking the Grand Canal: a hopelessly romantic setting if ever there was one. The bar dispenses snacks for most of the day but there’s no restaurant.

Service: 

Rather frosty staff, especially on the front desk, can be off-putting.

Who stays there: 

Travellers looking for a compromise between the grand palazzo and the design experience like Ca’ Nigra, as do newlyweds for whom a celebratory bottle of champagne in the rose garden overlooking the Grand Canal is a must.

Price advice: 

Make your low-season booking well in advance to secure the best rates here.

Pros: 
The canal-side garden is a huge bonus
Proximity to the railway station and piazzale Roma ensures easy arrivals and departures
Cons: 
Rather impersonal, unlike many other boutiquey establishments in Venice
