A private island only a ten-minute boat ride from Venice is the setting of St Regis Venice San Clemente Palace hotel, the brand's first in the north east region of Italy.

When the hotel giant took over the original property in 2013, it invested an enormous £17.9m into restoring the six-hectare island. The transformation has been vast.

Accommodation spans 191 rooms, with the lagoon-facing suites the most extravagant of them all. Guests can watch the boats sail by the hotel's private gardens or take in the Venetian landscape from the Lagoon View rooms.

The Acquerello Restaurant gets top billing among the hotel's three dining venues, serving locally sourced ingredients with a Mediterranean twist.

Traditional and historical meeting venues are on offer at the San Clemente Palace.

Its conference centre houses seven venues and a maximum of 300 delegates, and there is a selection of outdoor spaces that work well for group lunches and dinners beside the lagoons.

The San Clemente Church, founded in 1131, is famous for being regularly visited by the city's most revered families and hosts a variety of private events.

Wi-fi: Free throughout
