Our philosophy was to create the perfect summer haven by the sea. A place to really enjoy the Piazza lifestyle.

Our fresh new look is a love letter to Liguria. Natural wood, rope and brass speak to the area’s nautical history. Heritage Italian colours frame the sea views. Crisp black lines, traditional archways and terracotta flooring evoke the movement of the sea. Bespoke hand-crafted pieces by local artisans are layered with Loro Piana fabrics and design pieces from Gio Ponti creating a bright, calm hideaway.

The Restoration

Within Our Walls

From the framed views of the Ligurian Sea to the quaint architecture that surrounds the harbour, every detail will take your breath away.

The Hotel

The Hotel

Our roots are tied to the coast. We were the first hotel in Portofino offering refuge to fishermen escaping the storms. Today Splendido Mare is being lovingly redesigned as a glamorous retreat that honours its nautical past.

Unique artwork and rich Ligurian colours frame the dazzling blue sea. Each of our individually designed suites offers a unique personality and style. Our corridors are a register of the many colourful characters who have occupied this space over the past century.
