Hotel SplendidoSet on a hillside on four acres of romantic tropical gardens with superb palm trees, the Hotel Splendido overlooks the bay of Portofino. The Hotel Splendido is a 16th century former Benedictine monastery that opened as a hotel in 1901. Today, it’s boasted as one of the most beautiful hotels on the Italian Riviera with a guest book that reads like a celebrity who’s who attracting visitors from far and wide. Illustrious guests included, Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable and Elizabeth Taylor to name a few.
The view is absolutely breathtaking. Guests find themselves surrounded by the stunning gardens and can gaze down upon the charming little harbor of Portofino. The graceful, pink and white exterior hints at what you will uncover inside the hotel. Elegant furniture, frescoes and Carrara marble create an authentic Mediterranean atmosphere. The hotel has just the right blend of beauty, style, comfort and service. Hotel Splendido boasts 69 rooms and suites all splendidly furnished, many with private terraces looking onto an enchanting panorama.
Enjoy a swim and sunbathe by the beautiful swimming pool, pamper yourself at the spa or treat yourself to gourmet meals at La Terrazza Restaurant. If you are looking for unique experiences enjoy a romantic sunset cruise with champagne on the hotels private boat or try the olive oil tasting classes on the terrace.
