Excelsior Venice

by Web Editor

Venetian Renaissance Palace with a Touch of Moorish style, this is the Hotel Where the Stars Stay

Its early 20th century dock of Moorish inspiration is linked indissolubly to the Film Festival, not only because its first edition was held on its terrace in 1932, but also because the Grand Hotel Excelsior still hosts the most exclusive parties associated with the Venetian film extravaganza and is the location chosen by stars and VIPs during their stay. Overlooking the long, sandy beach of the Lido, this luxury five-star retreat boasts one of the most exclusive bathing resorts in Europe, distinguished by its elegant white canvas bathing huts and superbly comfortable sun beds, which conjure up images of the Belle Epoque. The unique Moorish style that characterizes the hotel is also present in its recently renovated 197 rooms. All rooms have a sea-view, a view of Venice, the lagoon or the magnificent Moorish courtyard, the heart of the complex. To ensure its guests’ wellbeing at all times, no detail has been left to chance. The creative dishes, of Mediterranean inspiration, prepared by chef Antonino Sanna are served in the elegant rooms of the Tropicana Restaurant or, during warmer weather, on the adjacent, candlelit terrace overlooking the beach and the sea. Lastly, guests wishing to relax without leaving the hotel can indulge in a rejuvenating experience at the hotel’s beautiful outdoor pool. The pool is heated in autumn and in spring and on-site amenities include a pool bar and white sun loungers.

The hotel is closed from November to March. Please check the opening in your preferred dates on the official website.
