Situated on its own private island, San Clemente Palace Kempinksi is making waves in the charming Italian city with the introduction of The Merchant of Venice Spa, the debut spa partnership with local luxury perfumery brand, The Merchant of Venice.

The 4,000-square-foot, two-level spa features a wet area; a relaxation lounge; a fitness center; four treatment rooms; and a menu featuring services using Natura Bissé products and signature treatments and massages using oils created by The Merchant of Venice. Additionally, a 530-square-foot private Spa Suite features a dedicated relaxation area, a hot tub, and wet area.

Among the signature services is Viaggio a Cipro Per Due ($821, 3 hours), which uses essential oils from the Mocenigo rose, a species introduced to Venice from central China, and the Splendor Anti-Age ($247, 40 minutes) which incorporates a mask made from 24-karat gold leaves made for the spa by the Venetian craft workshop of Mario Berta Battiloro.
