UK: Hotel Excelsior Venice Lido Resort in Italy is the latest addition to Iconic Luxury Hotels’ portfolio, marking the group’s debut as a global collection.
Hotel Excelsior Venice Lido Resort is the first international property to join Iconic.
Overlooking the beaches of Venice Lido, the property features 196 guest rooms including 23 suites, as well as three bars and one restaurant.
It’s been the home of the Venice film festival since 1932. This September marks the 77th Venice International Film Festival.
Also joining the Iconic collection next year is a new integrated resort development in Mykonos (Greece) and Palm House Hotel (Palm Beach, Florida).
Petra Deuter, executive director for Iconic Luxury Hotels, said: “L+R Hotels is very pleased to announce that Iconic Luxury Hotels is going international this year with the inclusion of Hotel Excelsior Venice Lido Resort in Italy and hotels in Greece and the USA in 2021. We have ambitious plans for international growth and it’s an honour to welcome these hotels to start that journey. Over the next few years we will see our collection continue to grow worldwide as we further our reputation for sustainable hospitality – preserving the life of historic buildings like Hotel Excelsior – and creating memorable travel experiences. Each of our properties has its own stories, traditions and personality.”
She continued: “The last few months have been challenging for the hospitality industry and Italy particularly. Our team has worked round-the-clock to ensure we can re-open this hotel safely and provide our guests with an individual travel experience that we are known for. The expansive presidential suites, wide beaches and open-air restaurants are perfect for those looking for a great resort experience. Our hotel has parking facilities for those wishing to drive from other European countries, and is the perfect base for families and solo travellers alike. Not only is Hotel Excelsior a perfect self-contained resort, but it’s so close to the historic city of Venice for those wishing to explore without the normal tourist crowds. As home to the oldest and arguably most glamorous film festival, we are excited to host it again this year and welcome people back to Venice.”
Iconic Luxury Hotels is part of L+R Hotels, a family owned global hotel investment and management company. Its portfolio comprises over 90 hotels with approximately 17,000 bedrooms.
