Ev­ery man needs an is­land

Hong Kong Tatler - - | Life Travel -

The best way to visit the la­goon city—one of Europe’s most ro­man­tic but also one of it’s most touristy—is, ar­guably, to stay just off it. The six-hectare pri­vate is­land of San Cle­mente is a bu­colic park­land planted with groves of limes, elms and cypress trees. It’s just a 15-minute boat ride from San Marco, with a free shut­tle that runs ev­ery 30 min­utes. The 190 rooms and suites of the Kempin­ski ho­tel are lo­cated in a beau­ti­ful former monastery and church dat­ing from the 12th cen­tury. They are sur­rounded by lush gar­dens and an­tique court­yards. The is­land also has three restaurants, three bars, a pitch-and-putt course, a tennis court and a 20-me­tre heated out­door pool. Sud­denly trawl­ing through the Guggen­heim is look­ing less and less ap­peal­ing. kempin­ski.com
