Langham Hospitality Group has broken ground on The Langham, Venice. The resort is set to open its doors in three years’ time.
The project will see the regeneration of the historic former Casino Mocenigo building and the Murano glass factory. The work will be overseen by Italian architects Matteo Thun & Partners. Located on Murano Island, the two Renaissance buildings are set to be fully restored.
The original facades of the old glass furnace buildings as well as their original wooden trusses and the casino’s original 16th century frescoes will all be retained and restored as part of the process.
The Langham, Venice will play host to 133 guestrooms and 30 suites. Its additional amenities will include a lawn garden, a central private courtyard with a 20 m pool, a private cooking school, and two spaces for meetings and events.
Its F&B offer is planned to consist of a restaurant with alfresco and indoor seating and a rooftop bar. Guests will also be able to partake in the brand’s signature afternoon tea.
The Langham, Venice is an integral part of Langham Hospitality Group’s global strategic expansion. 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.
Brett Butcher, CEO of Langham Hospitality Group
When we were asked by Langham Hospitality Group to submit our vision for a luxury resort in Murano, we were enthused by the unique opportunity to return historical buildings to their past glory and provide an extraordinary destination for the cultured, the curious and fun-loving visitors seeking to experience the authentic Venice. We have worked closely with Langham Hospitality Group and the Venetian Heritage authorities to ensure that The Langham, Venice is an authentic reflection of the distinctiveness of Venetian culture and lifestyle. As the project starts on site, we cannot wait to see this vision materialise.
