An exclusive early 19th century residence

Inaugurated in 1907, the Grande Albergo Ausonia & Hungaria was the preferred spot for many travellers from Europe given its charm and its special privilege on the Gran Viale Santa Maria Elisabetta, just a short distance from the beach. Closed during the war and reopened in 1920, it was one of the key players in the season of gold of the Lido di Venezia when guests danced the night away at its elegant club, the “Follies Dancing”……

Dining: modern comforts and antique splendor

The Grande Albergo Ausonia & Hungaria has offered exceptional fine dining since 2007, which has raised the level of comfort. At the same time, the frescos and original decorations in the main rooms were restored to their original glory, once the spot for sumptuous private parties and now perfect for meetings, events and receptions.

More than a century of history: “Se i Muri Potessero Parlare”

For the recent renovation of the Grande Albergo Ausonia & Hungaria, the publication, “Se i Muri Potessero Parlare”, was released, which told the story of the exceptional Grand Hotel and its fascinating backdrop, Lido di Venezia, with many period photos, anecdotes and curiosities.

Wellbeing and Relaxation based on Ancient Thai Tradition

At the Grande Albergo Ausonia & Hungaria in Lido di Venezia, we have the Wellness LANNA GAIA, a modern Thai Spa officially recognized by the Government in Bangkok for its strict respect for Thai canons in terms of furnishings, greetings and treatments.

The staff, originally from Thailand and graduates of the best academies in the country, offer reinvigorating and rejuvenating options that offer total wellbeing, the result of a careful balance of the body and the mind to drive away stress, detoxify and relax you.

Lanna, the kingdom of balance and wellbeing…

Recognized as one of the most ancient kingdoms of Thailand, Lanna is famous for its beauty and the hospitality of its people and its philosophy on life that is inspired by the concept of wellbeing. A perfect state of balance between the mind and the body, passed down from generation to generation for hundreds of years, sought after and recreated for you by the knowing hands of the Thai staff at the Lanna Gaia center.


Lanna and Gaia

Lanna is the balance between the four elements of the body. Wind, water, earth and fire protect us from any disease but only if they are perfectly balanced. In this state of harmony, the flows of energy in the body are free to flow, offering wellbeing and vitality, completing a virtuous cycle that is essential to drive away stress and tension. Lanna occurs naturally with Gaia, the goddess of the earth, the ecosystem that allows for the birth of life and its healthy and stable continuation overtime.
