Set on the verdant hillside overlooking Portofino Harbour and surrounded by stunning gardens, Belmond Hotel Splendido boasts breathtakingly beautiful views that are bound to create lifelong memories. This legendary luxury resort is one of two sister hotels, the other - Belmond Splendido Mare - located on the harbour just below. A free shuttle will take you back and forth between the properties, or you can enjoy the sea breeze on the ten-minute walk to the waterfront.
The hotel is 45 minutes by car from the Genoa airport.
The hotel, a former 16th-century Benedictine monastery, offers the perfect blend of beauty, style, comfort and service. Wisteria blossoms adorn the exterior and colourful frescoes decorate the walls inside in quintessential Mediterranean style. It’s no wonder that stars including Elizabeth Taylor and Humphrey Bogart once came here for a relaxing and indulgent escape.
You can expect the utmost luxury from the rooms here, which are all en-suite and come flooded with natural light. Some rooms look over the village, and others have views of the glittering Ligurian sea. Many come with a private terracotta-tiled terrace for sipping on your morning coffee in the sunshine.
The hotel restaurant, La Terrazza, serves up gourmet Italian dishes in a stunning setting overlooking the water. It’s open for both lunch and dinner. If you’d rather venture down to the harbour, you can dine at Chuflay - the popular restaurant at Belmond Splendido Mare. Stand-out dishes include the veal milanese and pretty much all the fresh seafood dishes.
