In the words of Mr. Valentini Valentino upon seeing the view from one of the hotel’s terraces, “Splendido”; a place with 125 years of history, which founded roots as a refuge for fishermen, is positioned today as one of the most beautiful and exclusive hotels on the italian riviera. The Belmond Splendido Hotel is the pinnacle of Italian glamor and excellence.


Belmond Splendido Mare

Its history is merely connected to the coast and it will let us know it throughout the experience as we are surrounded by natural wood, bronze, rope and vibrant Italian colors framing the beautiful view of the sea. Its terraces, handcrafted works of art and notable custom pieces such as Loro Piana fabrics and Gio Ponti designs; inundate us with a feeling of exclusivity which makes this accomodation an harmonious paradise, perfect for an adventure on the Italian coast.


The hotel denotes its approach to relaxation, to the “dolce vita” that we have all dreamed of experiencing; With an incomparable vibe and views that only Portofino can give us, the Splendido hotel is the ideal place to enjoy Italian traditions either inside or around it. Splendido offers us an award-winning restaurant “Dav Mare” that offers authentic recipes, local and fresh flavors that result in a unique gastronomic experience of its kind. We cannot forget the Gelateria “San Giorgio ” right outside the hotel in the center of Piazzetta where we will find the perfect pleasure to accompany the Portofino sun with typical flavors of the region.

The suites are no exception, fantastic architecture, unparalleled views and an attention to detail that only Belmond can provide; each room radiates the spirit of the “piazzetta” with vibrant colors and classic touches combined with the necessary modernity so that we do not feel like leaving our suite; however Splendido offers us many reasons to go out and explore, terraces, climatic pools with the best view of the port, bars and tennis courts are more than enough reasons to have an escape to another world, a splendid world.
