Langham Hospitality Group is to launch in Italy with a property in Venice, scheduled to open in 2023.
The company said the hotel was “an important milestone for the brand as we continue to cultivate our presence in Europe”.
The 138-key hotel is located on the island of Murano, long revered for its centuries-old tradition of glass making. The Langham, Venice will be housed in the former Casino Mocenigo which can trace its legacy to the early 1600s.

"The Langham, Venice will provide an exclusive leisure experience that blends the finest elements of the local Venetian culture and heritage with personalised intuitive service that are the hallmarks of The Langham luxury experience.
"The opening of The Langham, Venice will be an important milestone for the brand as we continue to cultivate our presence in Europe. We look forward to elevating our guests' extraordinary experiences at this spectacular hotel, and we are proud to play a part in upholding the fine traditions of Venetian luxury hospitality.”
