“Modern meets rococo” at this converted 16th-century palazzo, said Tom Parker Bowles in Food & Wine. The 8-month-old Aman “has a warmth and character that is impossible to manufacture,” but its 24 rooms and suites occupy “a different planet from the usual Venetian faded grandeur.” The simple lines of “resolutely modernist” furniture play well against the palazzo’s baroque detailing. Better yet, from the moment you step inside, service is so “smiling and friendly” that you might almost think you’re the only guest in the place.amanresorts.com; doubles from $1,374
