Who is Aba
The Bibione Hoteliers Association: excellent quality hospitality and reception.
Founded in 1967, ABA (Associazione Bibionese Albergatori or Bibione Hoteliers Association) encompasses all the accommodation offerings of this tourist area which, with 101 associated facilities, offers more than 11,000 beds in various categories such as hotels, ApartHotels, B&Bs, residences, holiday villages and camp destination.
The ABA, through its own travel agency, ABA Viaggi e Vacanze (ABA Travel and Holidays), can ensure that tourists, travel agents and tour operators have complete tourist information relevant to this resort. Thanks to its associated facilities, it can provide a response in real time regarding hotel availability. Long a leader in tourist reception, ABA was the first association to offer an optional insurance policy to guarantee its hotel guests a carefree stay with protection from unforeseen events. ABA also promotes its Product Clubs for specific subsets of tourists: families, mountain bikers, hikers or golfers, animal lovers, and those interested in taking cures at Bibione’s Thermal Baths.
The Association is non-political and non-partisan, and it is not for profit, nor is it operated for proprietary interests. Its offices are at Corso del Sole, n. 6 in Bibione di San Michele al Tagliamento. Tel.+39 0431 430101 – fax. + 39 0431.439939

All companies classified as “hotel accommodation facilities” by national and regional regulations can become members of our Association, including companies referred to above that are not located in the geographical area that our Association covers if they are nearby, in cases when they are located in a resort, town or province where a trade association belonging to Federalberghi (the Federation of Italian Hotel and Tourist Associations) is not present.
Other entrepreneurial subjects active in managing hospitality facilities can also participate in our Association even if they are not classified as falling within the hotel industry: these subjects can join as aggregate members without the right to vote.
Our association established ABA Servizi s. Coop. CARL, a company with the objective of providing all services, including those of a commercial nature, useful in the development and assistance of our members’activities.
The Chairman and the Board of Directors of ABA are the same as those of ABA Servizi, so that the two institutions can act in synergy and take all decisions in an integrated way.
