Let the holiday begin.

During the 1920s, our guests used to divide their time between life in the hotel and life on the beach, enjoying comfortable beach cabins to which verandas and awnings were added. They were an invention of the Lido and considered an extension of the hotel’s services.

Today, we offer three different fully equipped beaches. Lie back and soak up the sun in one of our cabanas – and let our attentive waiting staff do the rest.

Cabanas are available from June to September 2022. Simply book your ticket to relaxation and check in at the beach office.

Excelsior Beach

Laid on the beach in front of the Hotel Excelsior Venice Lido Resort, these cherished white cabanas represent a precious historical background and one of the most exclusive bathing establishments in the world. SEASONAL PRICE LIST

Characterised by thatched roofs, its cabanas give the entire area an original and relaxing atmosphere. SEASONAL PRICE LIST
