Standing amid verdant woodlands overlooking a ravishing seascape, the Hotel Splendido is a unique blend of beauty and comfort.
Set on a hillside in four acres of romantic tropical gardens with superb palm trees, the Hotel Splendido overlooks the bay of Portofino.
Today the Splendido still has a patrician air. The principal reception rooms are furnished with old looking glasses, gilt console tables and Persian rug, the dining room serves food based on local, even peasant, tradition - fresh fish, home made pasta and lots of local aromatic herbs.
The gardens run down the slopes beneath the hotel to the sea, bushes of lavender and wild herbs grow thickly under old olive trees and tangles of bougainvillaea obscure the paths and overhang secluded garden benches.
In 1985 Orient-Express Hotels bought the Hotel and started a pluriennal project of renovation. All rooms have since been completely redecorated and refurbished.
The Indoor Restaurant and the Piano Bar have been re-positioned and decorated in a ligurian-mediterranean design that complements the style of the Hotel. Both border the terrace and enjoy an immediate link with the outside and a beautiful view over the entire bay of Portofino.
