Set on a verdant hillside overlooking the picture-perfect harbour of Portofino, with its luxury yachts bobbing at anchor, Hotel Splendido is one of Italy's most glamorous retreats.

A stay here embraces all that is best about the Ligurian Riviera: warm days by the pool, celebrated cuisine and magical views of the turquoise Mediterranean.

For guests who prefer to stay a little closer to the action, sister hotel Splendido Mare stands beside the renowned Piazzetta, close to the resort's lively quay. Together, these elegant retreats encapsulate the Orient-Express experience, delivering guests right to the heart of the vibrant local scene.

Imagine enjoying an early morning yoga session overlooking the blue waters of an idyllic, sun-splashed harbour, or spending the afternoon completing leisurely laps in a beautiful pool amid terraced gardens. If you want to relax or keep fit in gorgeous surroundings, Hotel Splendido has everything you need, including an all-weather Tennis Court or the Fitness Centre.

The Hotel Splendido boasts 69 elegant rooms, including 39 suites and junior suites. The décor is designed to capture and reflect the vivid, sundrenched colours of the surrounding natural vistas.

Set in the heart of Portofino, overlooking the Piazzetta and the small harbour, Splendido Mare boasts 16 Rooms and Suites.
