Set on a verdant hillside overlooking the picture-perfect harbour of Portofino, with its luxury yachts bobbing at anchor, Hotel Splendido is one of Italy’s most glamorous retreats. A stay here embraces all that is best about the Ligurian Riviera: warm days by the pool, celebrated cuisine and magical views of the turquoise Mediterranean.
Hotel Splendido Rooms & Suites
The Hotel Splendido boasts 69 rooms, including 39 magnificent suites and junior suites. Many rooms have private terraces offering breathtaking vistas.
Splendido Mare Rooms & Suites
Set in the heart of Portofino, overlooking the Piazzetta and the small harbour, the 4 star hotel Splendido Mare boasts 16 Rooms and Suites, most with a balcony or terrace.
You can enjoy the best Italian cuisine at Hotel Splendido's La Terrazza Restaurant, with magnificent views of the bay, or dine indoors in elegant splendour.
For more relaxed, al fresco dining, opt for Pool Restaurant, where the lunchtime salad buffet is legendary, or seek out the best vantage point from which to enjoy the jet-set bustle of Portofino harbour from the terrace of the Chuflay Restaurant at Splendido Mare.
Opened in 2011, the Hotel Splendido's Wellness Center takes a holistic approach with its menu of massages, facials and body treatments, each performed using products by Les Senses de Marrakech, Sothys or Aromatheraphy Associates. Many guests opt for garden massages, offered in a secluded flowering corner of the hotel’s lushly terraced land. Guests can also take Pilates and yoga courses and relax in the sauna and steam room.
From the elegantly furnished bedrooms and ocean-view balconies to the infinity pool and four acres of olive-lined tropical gardens, the Splendido inspires pure romance. They say that Richard Burton reportedly proposed to Elizabeth Taylor here.
