The Langham Hospitality Group officially started construction on the new The Langham, Venice, transforming the historic former Casino Mocenigo building and Murano glass factory on the island of Murano into one of the finest deluxe resorts in Venice.
The Langham, Venice, expected to open in 2026, will combine modern luxury with authentic Venetian heritage in a revitalization project slated to become a new heritage landmark. Located directly on the Venetian Lagoon, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the 133-room hotel will include 30 suites. Matteo Thun & Partners, based in Milan and Munich, will restore the frescoes from the original 16th-century casino, as well as redevelop the 20th-century industrial Murano glass factory buildings.
“The Langham, Venice is an integral part of Langham Hospitality Group’s global strategic expansion,” said Brett Butcher, CEO, Langham Hospitality Group. “The ground-breaking transitions from concept to creation reinforcing our commitment to bring to life the iconic Langham signatures in one of Europe’s most important cultural hubs.”
The property will retain and restore the original façades of the old glass furnace buildings, including original wooden trusses. Modern touches include a restaurant with alfresco and indoor seating, and an exclusive rooftop bar. Resort organizers for The Langham’s social and corporate events will have a choice of two venues in a historic setting, one with stunning laguna views and one in the central courtyard with both indoor and outdoor spaces.
Guests will want to experience The Langham’s signature traditions, including afternoon tea, which honors a tradition originating at The Langham, London in 1865. The resort will also offer a private cooking school for guests wishing to take home, or have on site, a creative and tasty slice of Venice.
The restored buildings will wrap around a central private courtyard with a pool, a rare amenity in Venice, forming the heart of the resort. The architects have also designed a private and quiet green lawned garden with a 65-foot pool that will form the centerpiece of the garden. The pool will be used for swimming during the day, transforming at night with special lighting for evening cocktails and social events.
With its breathtaking views, a beautiful façade on the lagoon and its exclusive courtyard garden, The Langham, Venice will create a reverence to Venetian culture and a new location for luxurious hospitality.
After a stressful pre-holiday season and a busy work schedule, there was no better time for a relaxing spa experience than during my recent trip to Pasadena with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team. We headed to The Langham Huntington, Pasadena for the 20th anniversary of the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which meant a jam-packed trip, but I managed to carve a little time out of our busy schedule to visit Chuan Spa at the hotel.
You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
