Hotel Excelsior Venice

Hotel Excelsior Venice 5

A beachfront position on Venice’s Lido, décor blending Venetian and Arabesque styles; Hotel Excelsior hits all the high notes.

More than 100 years since its construction, Hotel Excelsior remains one of the icons of Venice’s luxury hotel scene, thanks to its glamorous Lido location, grand design with Arabian and Belle Époque influences, and superb gourmet offerings. Families are more than welcome here, particularly given the kids club that’ll keep them entertained for days, all the while parents can keep an eye out for visiting A-listers, as they lounge on a sunbed.

    Description, Services & Facilities

    It might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a luxury break in Venice, but it’s all about the beach when you stay at Hotel Excelsior. Nestling in the Lido, where the Film Festival is held, this lesser-visited corner of the ‘floating city’ is perfect for long days on the golden sands, and even watersports such as wind surfing; yet you can reach the attractions of town within an easy 15-minute boat ride. The statuesque, rose façade of the Excelsior gives way to lofty, sparkling spaces inside, with glimpses of Moorish design features like ornate archways and domes, adding an altogether exotic feel throughout. Cool off in the outdoor pool, go for tennis or golf, and stretch out on a sun lounger at the beach. The children can either join you or have their own fun in the kids’ club; the hotel has thought of everything, from cooking to story time and origami to venetian mask making, ensuring the whole tribe gets the most out of their unforgettable time in Venice.
