the initial renovations, guests will be greeted by new, sophisticated and
modern surface finishes throughout the property. In addition, the Venetian-Byzantine

glory following a fire in 2014. The subsequent phases of the masterplan
will be implemented throughout the next two years, including style updates
to the 197 luxurious bedrooms and public areas, as well as a new food and
beverage strategy. In June 2018, La Taverna, a beach level restaurant with
serene sea views, will kick off summer with a fresh design and menu. Like

new dishes are rooted in traditional Italian culture and cuisine.

The project is brought to life by the London & Regional Properties Group (L+R), an international hotel investment specialist with a portfolio of around 12,000 hotel rooms, who became the sole operating management company of the Lido in December 2016.
