Every once in a while we think about leaving everything behind and desappear for a while. Well… don’t we all? Sometimes a good old vacation is just what we need. But in other occasions we need more than that. Time for ourselves, for our health and for our minds. That’s why as soon as we heard about these two retreats organized by Aman Resorts in two of their most amazing destinations, Buthan and Greece, we knew we had to share them with you.
Venice is my favourite place in the world. If I had to choose one place to stay forever, Venice will be the chosen one. Its architecture, its history, its food and its undeniable charm made me fall in love with this city when I was a kid. Since then, I’ve tried to visit Venice at least once a year. The Venice I love, my Venice, is placed in the Castello area. The Venice I love is full of empty tiny streets to enjoy long walks, lively squares to savour a Spritz and a nice conversation, boats that sell the best fruit and nights that are as enigmatic as silent. But there is another Venice: the opulent, decadent, exclusive and even obscene. That Venice surrounds the Gran Canal, that Venice is epitomize by those palazzi where lavish parties have taken place during years. I’ve always been so curious about it, I won’t lie. And this hotel seems the best place to discover it.
