Melia Hotels International has announced the addition of a new five-star hotel located on the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy, which will open in late 2018.

The property will be situated within an existing building that will undergo extensive refurbishment. It will feature 79 rooms, a selection of meeting spaces, a signature restaurant and an all-day dining restaurant. Melia says the hotel will also feature a swimming pool, patios and views of Venice’s Grand Canal.

Gran Melia Ca’ di Dio will be located within close proximity to Venice’s major attractions, including Doge’s Palace, the National Library of St Mark’s, the Bridge of Sighs and St Mark’s Square.

The hotel is owned by the Salute Hospitality Group and will be managed by Melia for an initial 29 years.
