The Italian Riviera’s JetSet hotspot
Blending an enticing waterfront setting with luxury spa facilities and two world-class dining options, Belmond Hotel Splendido is the destination of choice for those arriving to Portofino by superyacht.
Hugging the hills which rise up around the bay of Portofino, Hotel Splendido embodies signature Belmond quality while still preserving its rustic Ligurian charm.
The establishment is split between two equally enviable locations, with the main hotel carved into the slopes and spilling across several levels, while the secondary venue sits at ground level opposite the yacht-filled harbour and quaint Piazzetta.
A taste of la dolce vita at La Terrazza
An Italian haven in the hills, Hotel Splendido's La Terrazza fuses upscale dining with a warm and convivial ambience.
Intimate tables dressed in white linen are scattered across the lofty stone terrace, framed by pink and cream bougainvillea and offset by spectacular vistas over the glittering Mediterranean.
The mouthwatering menu focuses on regional dishes with unfussy flair and locally-sourced produce, balanced by exotic twists and innovative flavour infusions. Japanese yuzu adds an unexpected kick to striped bass, while vanilla and apple laced pork proves popular among discerning diners.
As the sun sets over this slice of paradise, diners can sit back and sip a smoothly-mixed cocktail by the golden glow of candelight.
Authentic Italian classics at Chuflay
Hotel Splendido embodies signature Belmond quality while still preserving its rustic Ligurian charm.
Ideal for a relaxed lunchtime meal, Chuflay’s terrace offers an excellent view of one of Italy’s most beautiful harbour towns, with its huddle of pastel-coloured buildings curving lazily around the waterside.
Exuding a timeless Riviera glamour, the restaurant that has drawn stars of the silver screen, statesmen and celebrities for decades, with Director James Cameron and Rihanna among the stars who have enjoyed meals here.
As one might expect, a range of fresh, locally caught fish dominates the menu, alongside tempting homemade pasta dishes.
Inside, the atmosphere is one of calm elegance, making Chuflay perfect for an unhurried romantic dinner as the resident pianist sets the scene with gentle melodies.
Indulgent pampering at the spa
Home to an expertly-equipped wellness centre with a sauna and seaview treatment gazebo, Hotel Splendido offers an expansive range of daily treatments which aim to reset and rebalance.
