Summary

Steeped in history and glamour, live out a true cinematic escape in the hills overlooking Portofino.
 
Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor returned time and again to Splendido—and it’s easy to see why. A beautifully restored former 16th-century monastery, it is the epitome of Italian glamour. Dine deliciously on authentic Italian classics at La Terrazza. Unwind in the award-winning spa. Soak up the sun beside the shimmering pool. Every moment here will make you feel like a silver screen star.

COMPLIMENTARY SHUTTLE SERVICE

The hotel's guests enjoy access to the facilities of both Belmond hotels in Portofino, from the harbourside haven to the hilltop retreat. So, whether you’re staying at Splendido Mare (a sister property) or Splendido, Belmond's complimentary shuttle service is on hand to whisk you from one to the other.

Location

Splashed with colour, oozing with style, the picturesque region of Liguria – also known as the Italian Riviera – has been leaving visitors smitten for centuries. Medieval poet Dante was inspired by the landscapes, Lord Byron swam across the Gulf of La Spezia (later christened the Gulf of Poets) to visit the Shelleys, and Rex Harrison triggered a rush of Hollywood stars to the region in thehedonistic 1950s.

Who couldn’t fall in love with Liguria, where rainbow-hued houses and medieval streets overlook bewitching seascapes of craggy coves and azure water? Most jewel-like of all is Portofino, the pretty fishing village that lured Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardner and Cary Grant in the 1960s and retains its unspoilt charm to this day. Cypress- and palm-clad hills back a jumble of ochre and terracotta houses by the waterfront. Beautiful villas dot the green hillsides. Dolphins can be glimpsed playing in the waters beyond the gleaming yachts. It’s here in this idyllic enclave that you’ll find Belmond Hotel Splendido nestled in the hillside, and Belmond Splendido Mare down at the water’s edge. 

The nearest airport is Genoa (GOA) - about 45 km away.

Experiences - activities

THE JEWEL of the Italian Riviera, Portofino’s charm is in its intimacy. Its roots stretch back to the time of Pliny the Elder, who recorded that it was named Portus Delphini for the many dolphins which could be found there. Originally a fishing village, Portofino first attracted aristocratic patronage in the 19th century but has maintained its intimate, rustic feel to this day.
