Delve into the heart of Portofino life

Discover The Legend
From our prime location in the protected park of Portofino, the views of Tigullio and beyond embrace you.
Suspended in time among historic architecture, admire the sea views and verdant countryside that stretch out across terraces, balconies and patios, offering a contemplative haven of privacy.
In our storied past, luminaries called this place home: the likes of Winston Churchill, Maria Callas, Grace Kelly, Charlie Chaplin and Walt Disney stayed and embraced its magic. Today, our guests continue this legacy of culture.
Royals, Hollywood celebrities and discerning individuals from around the world choose to spend special occasions with us at Splendido. In both past, present and future, this is a place to celebrate and share in delight.
Splendido is inseparable from Portofino, and, in being so, is an emblem of the enduring allure of this captivating seaside town.
At our home in the hills, our historic connection to culture is palpable. The style of the tastemakers and icons who have through our hallways and enjoyed memorable meals on the iconic terrace lives on.

A stay in Portofino calls for a day at the beach.

Crafting of Splendido
Behind the scenes of our hotel’s new chapter
Meet Gio Bressana
Step into Gio Bressana’s distinctive world of beautiful frescoes. From maestro Caravaggio to contemporary music, sources of inspiration are aplenty for the painter, who adds splendid hues of blue, ochre yellow and terracotta to the walls and furniture of the hotel’s interiors.
Meet Martin Brudnizki
For the first phase of our renovation, meet Martin Brudnizki, the mastermind behind our new interior. Alike a painter, he reimagines Splendido’s accommodations with a balanced colour palette, terrazzo pieces and midollino weave, where headboard fabric and classic furniture tell the vivid stories of Portofino.
