What we love
Here, you are situated in Italy's glorious Riviera at one of Italy's most spectacular hotels. Refined and elegant, the views are that of the kaleidoscopic colours of the houses hugging the brilliant blue of the Mediterranean. Not even Leonardo could recreate such a visual delight.
Setting the scene
The service remains impeccable, the views remain untouched and the Hollywood super-stars still come in their numbers to escape to Italy's most stunning coastline. Less glitz & glamour than her French counterpart, the Italian Riviera offers a traditional community feel that is still very much a working fishing village.
The room types at the Belmond Hotel Splendido vary in size & style, with 3 different types of Double rooms, Junior suites and Suites. The double rooms differ based on their views - all are stylishly decorated in neutral pastel colour schemes with the views ranging from garden view to sea view with private balcony. All the suites enjoy private balconies and sea views over the harbour or the Piazzetta in Portifino. And for the ultimate stay book one of the three private apartments; Presidential, Dolce Vita or Ava Gardner. No luxury has been left to chance here, with glorious views, large living spaces and sumptuous furnishings.
The signature restaurant of the Hotel Splendido, La Terrazza is one of Italy's most spectacular dining venues in simply breath-taking settings with unparalleled views over Portofino Bay. Seafood, pasta and regional specialities are cooked to perfection by Chef Corrado Corti and his team. Open from April to October, their Pool Restaurant is a great option for rustic and refreshingly light pizzas, seafood specialities to keep hunger at bay during a lunchtime. All served alfresco under the warm Italian sunshine.
For the active types amongst us there is the Fitness Centre fully equipped with all the latest exercise equipment, with hardwood floors throughout and sea views via a spectacular glass wall. There is an all-weather tennis court nestled in lush gardens of the hotel which incredible views perhaps a little distracting but definitely worthwhile missing the odd shot or two! For those in search of the more relaxed pace of life, the Belmond Hotel Splendido Spa is of the best spas in Italy, a truly tranquil environment. In the evening, following a long day of pampering, get back to reality with a trip down to the Piazzetta, the main square of Portofino and immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of this traditional fishing village.
The hotel opens its arms when welcoming children to the hotel. The children will love their Smile Club which arranges exhilarating and exciting daily programmes for your children whilst you get a well deserved time to yourselves. This includes scavenger hunts, tennis lessons, art classes and much more. The hotel also provides children's welcome kit on arrival as well as special children's menu in all of the restaurants.
