JWMarriott Resort & Spa, Villa Rose VENICE, ITALY

In peak season, Venice can feel overwhelmingly busy, with hordes of visitors descending on the floating city. For a slice of peace in a notoriously chaotic destination, look no further than the JWMarriott Resort & Spa, which occupies its own island and can only be accessed via private water shuttle. For an added level of seclusion, check in to the Villa Rose, which sits away from the main hotel in its own two-story building. The two-bedroom villa’s interiors are ultra-modern, with neutral tones contrasted by striking black accents. The villa’s pretty gardens are just as inviting, with a comfortable lounge space and private pool with a view of Venice sealing the deal. To make use of its enviable amount of space, the hotel has its own organic kitchen garden to supply fruit and vegetables, which Villa Rose guests can try for themselves in the expansive dining area. Best feature Island within an island concept From $5,782 per night. Contact Markos Tzamalis, general manager, markos.tzamalis@jwmarriotthotels.com, +39 041 852 1300, jwvenice.com

Hotel de la Ville, De La Ville Suite ROME, ITALY Perched atop the iconic Spanish Steps, few hotels in Rome can claim a view quite like that from Hotel de la Ville. For the best view of all, however, book the De La Ville Suite, which has panoramic vistas across the Eternal City from both of its expansive outdoor terraces. Inside, the suite offers a combination of contemporary and vintage furniture throughout, creating a welcoming yet ultra-stylish finish, with an extensive selection of artwork adorning the walls. Head into the bathroom and you’ll find a marbled haven, complete with a delightfully deep bathtub, indulgent Sicilian botanicals and a high-tech surround sound system. With one bedroom, a spacious study, and a lounge and dining room, as well as the aforementioned terraces, the De La Ville Suite covers over 3,000 sq ft, but for a little extra room guests can opt to make use of the connecting bedrooms. Best feature A complimentary in-suite spa treatment for two From $7,577 per night.
