Belmond Hotel Splendido

Belmond Hotel Splendido



Overlooking the bay and standing against a backdrop of the rugged hills of Portofino is the iconic Belmond Hotel Splendido. Formerly a sixteenth-century monastery, Hotel Splendido maintains the history and charm of the past. It does this all while ensuring guests have all the comforts of the 21st century. 

With rooms that impress, fine dining to write home about, and a setting that will make you never want to leave, a trip to Portofino is simply incomplete without a stay at this luxury hotel.

Location

The village of Portofino is a beautiful gem on the coast of Liguria, Italy. Resting on green hills, the Belmond Hotel Splendido offers breathtaking views of Portofino as well as the Gulf of Tigullio. Moreover, the resort is just a short drive from the Genoa International Airport. It is also a short shuttle service ride away from the Piazzetta. 

Rooms

With 70 rooms and suites to choose from, there's one waiting just for you. Adorned with frescoes and craftsman touches, the guest rooms evoke the feeling of stepping onto the Italian Riviera. Moreover, all rooms come with beautiful marble bathrooms, a writing desk, and air conditioning. Each also has a large HDTV and a fully stocked minibar. 

Double Rooms come with either a King-sized bed or two Doubles. Guests can also choose their view by staying in either a Garden View or Sea View room. Or, opt for the Sea View Room with Balcony and take advantage of the furnished terrace overlooking the water. 

Suites

The suites at Belmond Hotel, Portofino, are large and luxurious, with various options to choose from, hand-finished touches, and sea views. The Junior Suites are bright and sunny, featuring plush furniture and a sitting area. The Deluxe Junior Suites and Superior Junior Suites also offer water views, and most have furnished balconies. 

Both Deluxe Suites and Exclusive Suites offer a furnished terrace or balcony with stunning views of the sea, Tigullio Gulf, or Portofino cove. For a truly magical experience, check out the Presidential Suites, offering one- and two-bedroom options. 

Additionally, the large living area is completely separated from the bedroom, and the large balcony gives guests the option to lounge inside or outside. Besides, the two-bedroom Presidential Suites can be connected to a Junior Suite for the convenience of families or groups traveling together. 

Furthermore, the Dolce Vita Suite is ideal for any guest looking to maximize their relaxation at Portofino. With two full bathrooms, a large open living area, a completely private and furnished garden patio, and a spectacular view of the bay, guests might find they never want to leave their room. 

Restaurant and Bar

As would be expected of a luxury hotel of this caliber, Belmond Hotel Portofino has various fine dining options to choose from. Experience Italian dining al fresco or in the well-appointed interior dining room at La Terrazza.

Featuring Italian classics with local ingredients, La Terrazza is open for lunch and dinner. On the menu, guests will find offerings such as ceviche, pesto ravioli, Fassona sirloin steak with Champignon mushroom-mille-feuille. There is also a special "Elizabeth Taylor" spaghetti.

The Bar La Terrazza features a large menu of specialty cocktails, wines, and even espresso drinks. Open until midnight, stop by the cocktail bar for a nightcap set against the soothing backdrop of live piano music.

After soaking up the sun and lounging by the pool, you can also enjoy drinks and a buffet of small bites at the Pool Grill Restaurant. Be sure to enjoy a drink or some appetizers at the Dom Perignon Belvedere. Resting in a secluded corner of the Belmond's private gardens, Belvedere also offers lush seating and a romantic atmosphere to sit and savor a drink in your hand and the beautiful views.

Spa and Wellness

The spa at Splendido allows guests to be pampered in true Italian fashion. With two treatment rooms, a couple's treatment room, an outdoor couple's treatment gazebo, a pedicure patio, and a hairdresser, there is an option for everybody. 

Moreover, treatments are more than just a treatment – they are an entire experience. Kick back in a lounge chair and soak up the Mediterranean sun and majestic views of the water while you enjoy a pedicure. Or, opt for the Portofino Dream for body and mind regeneration. 

The wellness center also includes a sauna, steam room, fitness center, tennis court, and infinity pool. Overlooking Portofino, the infinity saltwater pool has lounge chairs and umbrellas, making it a perfect spot to waste the day.

Other Amenities

All guest rooms come with free high-speed internet. Laundry facilities are available on-site and plenty of parking for those who bring their own car. Room service is available all day. The hotel also offers a Kids Club that will be a welcome retreat for families traveling with children. When you stay at the Belmond, you also get free access to the daily breakfast buffet. 

Exploring

While staying at Belmond Hotel Splendido, guests will have easy access to the best that Ligurian Riviera has to offer. Moreover, hotel guests have access to a private tour of Portofino. This will take them to two historical Portofino private villas and include a visit with a ship maker who will discuss Portofino's maritime history. 

Take advantage of the many nearby farm tours, or enjoy a romantic sunset cruise on the hotel's private boat. For the outdoorsy types, kayak along the Riviera and hike up to the centuries-old lighthouse. Additionally, stroll along the harbor, explore the green Portofino hills, or hike up to Castello Brown.

Of course, you are still in Italy, so there are plenty of wine-tasting options to take advantage of as well. Or, walk down to the Piazzetta and spend the day getting some fresh seafood at one of the many restaurants and checking out the shopping at all of the beautiful boutiques. 

Furthermore, visit nearby Santa Margherita Ligure for a quieter exploration of sights, boutiques, and cafes. Still, looking for more ideas? Stop by the concierge, and staff will be happy to put together an activity plan perfectly suited to you. 

Takeaway

The service and charm at Belmond Hotel Splendido will make you want to plan your next visit before you even check out. It's no surprise that the General Manager welcomed celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Clark Gable, Ringo Starr, Frank Sinatra, and even Madonna who have frequented the resort. Staying here, you'll feel like a celebrity yourself.
