Belmond Hotel Splendido

Italy, Liguria

Spa
Honeymoon
Good for Couples

  • Nestled into the hillside above picturesque Portofino
  • Elegantly decorated rooms offer views of the glittering ocean or landscaped gardens
  • Exceptional restaurants boast the finest Italian dishes
  • The heated saltwater pool is perfect for a sunset swim

Italy’s Belmond Hotel Splendido is the epitome of decadence. This former Benedictine monastery boats luxurious rooms and suites and exclusive facilities; it’s no wonder the exquisite hillside getaway was favoured by the likes of Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor. Follow in their footsteps as you lounge by the vast saltwater pool or take a stroll into Portofino, the picturesque fishing village with cobbled streets and buildings painted in shades of sorbet. Finish your day with a romantic meal out on the terrace of one of the hotel’s five star restaurants and watch the sun saturate the terracotta rooftops as it sets below the Italian Riviera. 

The hotel has 67 rooms and suites. Hotel child prices apply to ages 2–17 years. Please be aware the Belmond Hotel Splendido is not suitable for guests with limited mobility.

About the Location

It’s well known as a playground for the rich and famous, with upmarket bars and restaurants, as well as designer boutiques where you can pick up daring and chic Italian fashions.

Explorers can head into the nearby mountains where you’ll find fertile valleys and olive groves, while the port is ideal for those wanting to book boat trips. Stop off in secluded bays for a picnic and a swim or visit some of the smaller towns along the coast.
