Hotel Splendido


Hotel Splendido, Portofino


Star Rating: *****

Boasting stunning views from its wonderful location perched a ten-minute walk above the picturesque town of Portofino, this world-renowned hotel offers an enviable ambiance of elegance and warm hospitality. Set in delightfully exotic gardens, the five star Hotel Splendido was originally built as a monastery and, since its transformation in 1901, has played host to numerous stars of stage and screen. Guest rooms are delightfully decorated featuring hand-painted trompe l’oeil and antique furnishings and there are fantastic views of the harbour from the pool area, the wonderful panoramic terrace and from the delightful La Terrazza restaurant. A regular shuttle bus operates between Hotel Splendido and its four star sister hotel, Splendido Mare, which is set in the heart of Portofino.

Rooms at Splendido Mare are elegant and airy, and all day dining is available at Chuflay restaurant. Guests are encouraged to use the facilities at either hotel.
