Clubhouse Il Decameron: Italian Heritage in the Heart of Odesa

Il Decameron Clubhouse in Odesa

When it comes to the Black Sea in Ukraine, there’s hardly a better place for relaxation than Odesa, welcoming for long walks, exploring its numerous courtyards, monuments and architectural wonders. There are numerous modern and historical hotels in Odesa to spend a night, but we advise you to visit a special place. Staying at Il Decameron clubhouse is an opportunity to look at Odesa from an unusual perspective and learn more about city’s past and present.

The clubhouse is located in the picturesque downtown of Odesa, surrounded by the city’s numerous historical landmarks like the 19th-century Brodsky Synagogue, the Odesa Philharmonic House, the José de Ribas monument, and the Odesa Art Museum. Everything from the city to the clubhouse’s location was heartfelt and chosen by the Italian team.

According to Stefano Antoniolli, chef at Il Decameron’s Elissa restaurant, Odesa carries the Italian vibe like no other city in Ukraine. The reasons behind it stretch from quite obvious like the presence of the Black Sea to the more deep-rooted ones. For instance, history points out that Italians and French were the ones who stood at the city’s roots during its early days. Moreover, if you take a look at the map of Odesa, you will notice that the city’s parallel structure is typical of Rome. Even the street Il Decameron is located at was once called the “Garibaldi Street”.

The clubhouse is connected to Copernico — a networking system present not only in Odesa but also in Milan, Rome, Luxembourg and other European cities. Apart from the inner relations within the club, Copernico cooperates with other networking platforms around the world. Thus, Il Decameron partners with London, Singapore, and Miami, creating a worldwide business network. Membership at Copernico is not only a way to access the clubhouse privileges, but also to find the like-minded for a future partnership and creating new ideas. Members of the inner network at Il Decameron strengthen business connections within the country and far beyond its borders, while enjoying the hospitality and the fresh sea breeze.

The refined atmosphere inside each of them is the result of focusing on the physical and mental wellbeing of all guests and the high-quality Italian design. As Il Decameron grasps the concept of Italian lifestyle, it’s not surprising that in everything from the lights to the furniture was carefully chosen by the renowned architect Nunzio Da Vià.

There are 6 types of rooms available at the hotel: the Comfort suite, three types of Junior suites (with a kitchen, a terrace, or both), the Prestige suite, and finally the Premium suite. Each of them has a unique design and offers a view on the hotel’s Italian-style patio. Crème de la crème of the hotel is a penthouse — like an architectural crown, located on the top floor of main building, it offers a scenic 365-degree panorama views of beautiful Odessa. The exquisite lodging offers open plan common space with kitchen zone and dining area, which could host up to 20 persons. The big terrace invites guests to drink cocktails or simply have a rest while enjoying fresh air with a hint of sea breeze.Marble bathroom in a hotelA stylish bedroom with a cozy King Size bed, marbled bathroom and spacious wardrobe rooms are separated from the common area, which keeps the “privacy private”, as they say at Il Decameron. Founders of Il Decameron plan to develop a special collection of individually styled penthouses, which could offer great possibilities for individual VIP lodging as well as for conducting special private events.

The interior at Il Decameron is carefully peppered with works of art, like the three paintings by Marco Grassi, made with the gold leaf paint technique.
