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.
