What to Expect at Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa:
Newest of the elegant Bauer Hotels in Venice, intimate Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa is located on Giudecca Island across from the city and inside a former convent dating back to the Renaissance.
Guests and visitors can reach the property by taking the hotel's innovative B-Mare, a complimentary solar-powered shuttle that sails daily to and from Piazza San Marco during the hours of 10 am to 2 pm and 5 pm to midnight.
Guest Rooms at Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa:
Accommodations at Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa consist of 37 guest rooms and 13 suites. Private gardens and lagoon views contribute to the peaceful tranquility of the setting. Owned and operated by Venetian Francesca Possati, the hotel reflects her deep love for and knowledge of the city's arts and history. Tasteful decorations and tapestries reflect her taste and the quality of locally produced products.
Dining at Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa:
The hotel's Garden Bar & Restaurant serves a daily buffet breakfast, then reopens at noon to offer drinks and light snacks until 11 pm. Harry's Dolce
, a Cipriani restaurant, is another dining option on the island.
A 24-hour concierge is available to help with dining plans. These may include a reservation at De Pisis restaurant on the terrace of sister hotel Bauer Il Palazzo, which overlooks Venice's Grand Canal. Tagliolini made with chestnut flour and stuffed with wild mushrooms is one signature dish; lobster encircled by asparagus risotto is another. De Pisis' adjacent BBar is a popular Venetian night spot.

The new spa in this ancient structure holds eight treatment rooms and features a large Turkish hamman, a Vitalis bath, and an Obermaier Jacuzzi that accommodates two people.

Nearby Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa:
Giudecca is a quiet, uncrowded island, the perfect place to escape the crowds of Venice. Since the city's treasures lie just across the lagoon, guests can explore the religious, artistic, and romantic sights of Venice
at their leisure and then return to this peaceful perch.
Is Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa Right for You?:
Small, quiet, and very, very Venetian, Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa is not for couples who expect 24-hour service and high-tech amenities. If, on the other hand, your idea of a perfect visit to Venice involves a stay in a hallowed ancient space brought gently into the 21st century and located away from the crowds of Venice — and you have very deep pockets — Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa can be an ideal spot for a honeymoon or romantic getaway.
