Belmond Hotel Splendido, Portofino, Italy

Perched high above the gleaming bay of Portofino, surrounded by fragrant flowers and tropical palms, and indisputably the very best address in this most sought-after of Italian destinations.

​Set on a hillside in four acres of romantic gardens, Belmond Hotel Splendido is a peaches-and-cream villa overlooking the charming little harbour of Portofino, and one of those hotels that brings people back year after year.

Its glorious terrace has been graced by royalty and a bevy of stars from stage and screen who have enjoyed its elegance, refinement and second-to-none hospitality and service.

​Spread over a sequence of terraces, each of the 69 lovely rooms and suites affords breathtaking garden or Mediterranean views that provide a vibrant, ever-changing backdrop.

Days here are spent topping up your tan in splendid surroundings around the hillside pool (the only one in Portofino) with its panoramic views, letting cares slip away in the world-famous spa while the kids head to the Smile Club, taking a romantic private sunset cruise or olive oil tasting classes and dining under the stars at the legendary La Terrazza restaurant. Arguably one of the most glamorous places in the world.

Instead they remind us of our heritage with thoughtful touches and captivating traditions (afternoon tea anyone?) still the highlight of every day.
