The Belmond Hotel Splendido is one of Italy's most famous glamorous retreats, with its wonderful location perched above the picturesque town of Portofino with fantastic sea views. The beautifully restored 16th century building was originally a benedictine monastery. Today it opitomises Italian glamour and luxury. The Belmond Hotel Splendido shares all facilities with its sister hotel Belmond Hotel Splendido Mare, located on the waterfront in Portofino's famous harbour. A complimentary shuttle service connects the two properties allowing guests to easily enjoy all of the hotels facilities. Unwind on a sunbed beside the hotel's heated salt water pool, set against a backdrop of palm trees and lush vegetation or if you're feeling active perhaps have a game of tennis at the hotel's private courts. 

Carefully designed and beautifully decorated bedrooms are bright and airy, decorated in fresh pastel colours. Rooms provide a comfortable oasis to relax in during you stay. If you're heading to Italy for the exquisite cuisine, the Splendidos Restaurants will not disappoint. There are several excellent dining experiences including the Chuflay restaurant in central Portofino, where you can dine on the terrace beside the bustling piazzetta. For authentic Italian dining head to La Terrazza, serving local produce and regional specialties, which can all be enjoyed before the spectacular view across the bay.
