Hotel Splendido Portofino is considered one of the most beautiful and exclusive hotels in Portofino. It is set in four acres of romantic Mediterranean gardens on a hillside overlooking the picturesque Bay of Portofino. Historically, the building itself was a Benedictine monastery, later converted into a private villa and then transformed into the now renowned luxury hotel in 1901.
Since the beginning the hotel has played host to the most famous and noble families in Europe and the cream of the international jet-set, with the first person to sign the visitors’ book being the Duke of Windsor.
It is such a stunning setting for a stay… and combined with a fantastic personal service and celebrated cuisine dining on the terrace overlooking the harbour of Portofino below makes for a combination that is almost impossible to beat...
Not surprisingly, the hotel’s magical location was recognised by the readers of the luxury magazine ‘Condé Nast Traveller’ in their 2012 Year awards. The Hotel Splendido Portofino was voted by the readers into a first prize in the category ‘Best Overseas Leisure Hotel’ in Europe, Asia Minor and Russia. A stay here embraces all that is best about the Ligurian Riviera: sunny days by the pool, excellent food and magical views of the turquoise Mediterranean sea...
