Sala dei Mori at Ca Maria Adele, Venice, Italy

Sala dei Mori at Ca Maria Adele, Venice, Italy

Venice has been a byword for romance ever since its first gondolier picked up his oar and if there were ever a hotel that came with a rose between its teeth, it would be Ca Maria Adele, tucked away in Dorsoduro. This extra-special stay gradually unfolds like a well-kept secret: arriving on its private jetty is swoon-worthy enough, but Sala dei Mori – one of the hotel’s five concept rooms – continues the sexy and opulent theme. Its sultry, Moorish-themed interior includes dark glass chandeliers, rich fabrics and black flocked wallpapers: unashamedly sensuous.
