Ah, Venice. Enchanting city-on-water. Its sounds are of footsteps on the well-worn streets, and the cries of boatmen from the canals. The glories of the past at every turn. Who among us does not want to be there, soaking up the beauty, the atmosphere, the sheer Venetian pleasure of this romantic city? How about staying in one of the world’s great hotels, one where the Venetians themselves go to celebrate and unwind? A special place in which to experience Venice in total luxury—yet with a difference.
Not only a luxurious, romantic room for two in one of the world’s historic and palatial five-star hotels, but a palace on the golden sands of the Venice Lido, escaping the tourists and looking out over the glittering waters.
This, after all, is where the Venice Film Festival was created, where Sir Winston Churchill and Sophia Loren used to stay, and where the cognoscenti still do. Here, the rich history, beauty and culture of Venice are enhanced by the gentle charm, peace and glamour of the Lido. How very civilised!
So if, like the Venetians themselves, you want to steer a path away from the tourist hubbub, the Hotel Excelsior Venice Lido Resort is the place to be. It combines art, culture, fine food and a glorious beach and spa holiday—and we are thrilled to have secured a preferential rate here for the first CountryClubuk Members to snap it up!
The Excelsior is simply a Venetian icon. This grande dame embodies 1950s glamour, contemporary facilities and Venetian culture in every pore. No surprise that this is still the place to stay for stars during the Venice Film Festival—the hotel hosted the first film festival in 1932—as it was in the days of Churchill and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Sophia Loren, Marlene Dietrich and Ingrid Bergman, John Steinbeck and the Aga Khan.
Here you will find sumptuous rooms lit by Murano glass chandeliers and Venetian art, intriguing Belle Époque architecture and Moroccan design—a tinkling courtyard fountain, arches and sumptuous jewelled fabrics. Even the private beach cabanas are Moorish tents in this gateway to the Orient.
The location is perfect for exploring Venice, 15 minutes away across the lagoon, reached by complimentary motor launch. And the ability to leave the madding crowds of Venice and return to the palatial splendour, elegance, serenity and sybaritic pleasures of the Lido, the beach, the restaurants, the bars and long, languid vistas over the waters, is sublime.
It is all just as you would expect from one of the world’s great hotels. The experience is unmissable, perfect for a romantic break à deux.
And CountryClubuk has for Members a preferential arrangement on rates at this glamorous hotel, depending on availability when you book and excluding the Venice Film Festival, when it is fully booked with film stars and their entourages!
