Splendido Mare, a Belmond Hotel, Portofino
Splendido Mare, a Belmond Hotel, enjoys a privileged location on Portofino’s Piazzetta. Reopened in 2021 following a complete reimagination, this harbourside jewel radiates the carefree sophistication of the Italian Riviera.
It began life as a charming guesthouse for weary fishermen and travellers. Later, as Portofino’s allure was uncovered, it became the residence of choice for 19th-century European aristocrats. By the 1950s, it was witness to affluent jet-setters rubbing shoulders with legendary film stars, from Humphrey Bogart to Ava Gardner. Today, shining with a strong new personality but retaining the ethos of its roots, it is a gathering place for stylish Italians and international travellers.
The nautical spirit and relaxed refinement of its origins are evident in the 14 individually designed rooms and suites. Discovered along winding corridors, they boast rich Ligurian hues, artisanal details and picture-perfect harbour views. Murano glass lamps, understated Rubelli fabrics and vintage Gio Ponti furniture blend timeless style with a hint of dolce vita. Crowning the hotel is the light and airy Ava Gardner Suite with a magnificent terrace stretching its entire length – perfect for glittering private parties.
The restaurant offers exquisite Ligurian fare and a front-row seat on the Piazzetta action. Splendido Mare guests are welcome to enjoy a complimentary sailing excursion on a traditional gozzo, private loungers on the nearby secluded beach of Paraggi, and the exceptional facilities at sister hotel, Splendido. Reached by a courtesy shuttle, these range from the celebrated La Terrazza Restaurant overlooking the bay to a wellness centre, tennis court and panoramic saltwater pool.
A stay in Portofino calls for a day at the beach. The secluded Bay of Paraggi is nestled into the coastline just a short drive from Splendido Mare with the Hotel’s shuttle. As our guest, you’ll have your own private lounger waiting for you on the golden sands. Soak up the sun, take a refreshing dip in the emerald waters and make the most of your exclusive spot in this beautiful bay.
