Belmond Hotel Splendido
Scale of 90-100
Forty-five minutes southeast of Genoa, this dramatically sited hotel within a renovated 16th-century monastery overlooks Portofino’s picturesque yacht harbor from cliffside grounds. The 70 attractive guest quarters feature frescos by local artists and soothing pastel color schemes. Many come with private terraces or balconies that offer harbor or garden views. Avoid rooms in the separate Belmond Splendido Mare. Public areas include a piano bar for cocktails, a marvelous panoramic terrace restaurant serving fine Italian cuisine and a casual spot for lunches adjacent to a heated saltwater pool. There is also a small health-fitness spa, a tennis court and a kids’ club. The beautiful landscaped gardens and nearby woodlands are ideal for scenic walks. Activities include cooking classes, olive oil and wine tastings, and excursions on the hotel’s private boat.
