One classic institution entering the new year with a facelift is The Gritti Palace in Venice (www.luxurycollection.com/grittipalace; from €843). Original Rubelli Venetian textiles, rococo-inspired couches and Murano glass chandeliers all feature, along with a new Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Spa, a refreshed restaurant and the Gritti Terrace overlooking the Grand Canal.
