A VIP experience with SPG®
During last year's Carnival, we were delighted to bring a once in a lifetime experience to two SPG members as they attended the most exclusive masquerade ball in the world, Il Ballo Del Doge. On the day of the ball, they attended their costume fitting appointments and selected beautiful outfits from the atelier of Antonia Sautter who created the ball. She has over 1,500 handmade creations to select from.
From the buzz of Carnival in the hotel lobby, they arrive to the event in style by boat to the majestic palace of Palazzo Pisani Morretta which has hosted the past 22 editions.

The Gala dinner is a chance to experience an authentic evening ball with the presence of a Dance Master. During and after dinner guests will learn the basic steps of the dances from 1700s and 1800s, such as minuet, counter-dance, waltz, and other period dances. The seated dinner comprehends a four-course menu - wine included - and it is created by the Executive Chef of Hotel Danieli, Dario Parascandolo. A baroque ensemble will play live throughout the evening.
