Belmond Hotel Splendido takes pride of place overlooking the famous port of Portofino. Many of the rooms have private terraces with views across the harbor and are decorated in a traditional fresh and light northern Italian style.
Set on the waterfront, Belmond Hotel Splendido is the perfect base to relax and explore this beautiful area. Why not take a private boat trip along the coast, perhaps with a traditional picnic which the hotel's kitchen would be happy to provide.
Back on dry land, La Terrazza, the classic Italian restaurant at Belmond Hotel Splendido, has arguably one of the loveliest settings in Italy and serves traditional fare with a special attention to seafood.
The hotel's saltwater pool is a highlight, particularly in the heat of the summer, and is set amid lush gardens dotted with palm trees and with spectacular views of boats bobbing in the harbor beyond. Terraced gardens make the perfect place to relax and enjoy the scenery with a glass of something cold.
The small fishing village of Portofino retains a feeling of old-world charm and as a UNESCO World Heritage site has a truly unspoiled feeling. With scenery of breathtaking natural beauty it is unsurprising that this town has attracted writers such as Guy de Maupassant and Truman Capote, and the most glamorous Hollywood stars, including Liz Taylor, Richard Burton, Humphrey Bogart and Clark Gable. As part of the Belmond Hotel group, the service provided is unfailingly superb and in keeping with the glamorous history of the Belmond Hotel Splendido and the Cinque Terre.
