Belmond Hotel Splendido, Portofino

Set in a spectacular former monastery, Belmond Hotel Splendido is a discreet yet glamorous retreat and its reputation precedes it: this grand old villa has long been the secret playground of choice for the rich and famous. Besides the location, we love it for its seclusion, food and impeccable service; La Terrazza, the outside restaurant is famous for its breathtaking views and beautiful bellinis. The annual May blossoming of the bougainvillaea drapes almost every surface of the hotel and adds yet another layer of romance to this already heavenly hotel.


Belmond Hotel Splendido is nestled in the wooded hills above the charming fishing village of Portofino, overlooking a charming bay of pastel buildings and elegant boats and only a short stroll from its restaurants, shops, and nightlife. With ravishing seascapes and stunning scenery, this impeccably discreet retreat oozes movie star charisma, and trust us, this place is the perfect antidote to the pace and modernity of Milan.
