JW Marriott to enter Italy with resort in the Venetian Lagoon
By Aoife Dowling 27 Aug 2013
The lavish JW Marriott Resort & Spa on the island of Sacca Sessola in Italy, which is set to open end of 2014, has announced details of its wellness offerings.

The resort is situated 15 minutes by speedboat from Piazza San Marco in Venice. The Sacca Sessola is a 40-acre man-made island, is one of 118 islands in the Venetian lagoon.

Spa consultant and management company GOCO, is developing a waterfront spa, that will cover an area of 1,000sq m (10,765sq ft), with views over the Ventian Lagoon, set against a backdrop of Piazza San Marco.

Designed by Matteo Thun & Partners of Milan, GOCO has developed the spa concept and will operate the spa.

The spa will offer authentic, classical treatments, results-orientated cosmeceutical facials and male grooming. The facility will house treatment rooms and spa suites, as well as a bathing circuit, fitness centre, weekend spa and wellness packages and outdoor mind and body classes.

Set among private gardens, the spa will also offer guests treatments in pop-up locations around the island during the summer months.

In addition to the 266 guest rooms and suites, the resort will feature a selection of indoor and outdoor dining experiences, indoor and rooftop swimming pools and a restored chapel for private functions and weddings. JW Marriott is currently represented in Europe by five elegant hotels in London, Bucharest, Cannes and Ankara with the fifth joining just last year in Baku, Azerbaijan

Mitzi Gaskins, vice president and global brand manager for JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts said: “Northern Italy’s Venetian Lagoon is one of the world’s most picturesque destinations, and we're thrilled to bring the JW Marriott brand to such an iconic and thriving location.

“We look forward to bringing our guests’ passion points of culinary, culture and wellbeing to life through authentic, unique and enriching travel experiences.”

When the resort opens, it will be the second spa under GOCO management in Europe, after the opening of The Spa at Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof in Germany in May this year.
