For a super exclusive vacation, which luxury hotel in Portofino is the best choice for you?

Portofino stands out in the area not only as a destination for luxury travel but also for the distinctiveness of local handicrafts: in particular, for the production of lace and macramé, an ancient lace-weaving technique performed according to the seafaring method, creating knots and weaves without the use of crochet hooks.

In short, Portofino is an oasis of peace and filled with great beauty, the ideal place to regenerate body and mind.

Splendido Mare Belmond Hotel

The Splendido Mare, by Belmond, is one of Portofino’s finest luxury hotels.

Perched on a hill, it is about 50 km from Genoa’s Cristoforo Colombo airport, from which it also offers a shuttle service.
Also just a few minutes’ walk away is a beautiful beach.

The Splendido Mare offers 70 rooms and suites, equipped with every amenity and a decidedly exclusive panoramic view of the sea.
In addition, guests can entertain themselves with fitness classes at a spa, relax in the pool or sauna, or spend a pleasant evening in the lounge bar, which is also graced with a panoramic sea view.
Finally, for those in Portofino on business, the Splendido Mare‘s management also provides a business center.

Among the Splendido Mare‘s extra luxury suites, the most exclusive is definitely the Ava Gardner Suite, so named in honor of the beautiful, award-winning American actress.

The Ava Gardner Suite, located on the top floor of the Splendido Mare, will bring a dash of Hollywood lifestyle to your vacation: the cream-colored nuances of the interior make the room bright and welcoming, and the view from the panoramic balcony is simply stunning.
The interior design is carefully structured to convey a lifestyle that is refined but not opulent, the clever use of wood and that soulful midway between modern and colonial make the Ava Gardner the ideal place to feel like a Hollywood star in Portofino.

And for lovers of design, a few minutes from the Splendido Mare you will find the Cervara Abbey, a former monastic complex where, you can admire not only the superb architectural compartment but also the beauty of the Italian garden.

Eight Hotel

If you are looking for a structure that guarantees you all the exclusive comforts of high-end hospitality, right in the beating heart of Portofino, then the Eight Hotel is the place for you.

Eight Hotel is nestled between the mountains and the harbor, a few minutes’ walk from the famous Piazzetta, in a decidedly peaceful location.

The welcoming interiors are developed according to a contemporary concept, with soft shapes and vaguely “lounge” lighting, for a delicate and sophisticated lifestyle, punctuated by warm nuances that complement the vibrant tones of the natural landscape, especially in those corners of the Eight Hotel that have been admirably integrated with the surrounding nature.

Of all its rooms and suites, the most exclusive and the most refined is surely the Eight Suite, which stands out for its interior design with art deco reminiscences, itself embellished with finely crafted parquet flooring.
The palette used recalls the cheerful, bright tones of the sea and coastal houses, while the boiserie and designer wallpaper help delineate a unique environment in which to spend pleasant evenings, lulled by the sound of the waves.

We warmly recommend an exclusive boat tour to enjoy the stunning views of the area.

Best luxury hotels near Portofino

Although Portofino is the “flagship” of the coast, it still remains a small maritime village; this is an integral part of its charm and beauty, and indeed it is the privileged relationship with nature that makes not only Portofino but the entire coastline special, dotted as it is with little corners of paradise, just a few minutes’ drive apart.

Grand Hotel Bristol Spa Resort

In the heart of Rapallo, situated on a romantic “belvedere” overlooking the Portofino promontory and enveloped in Mediterranean vegetation, resides the Grand Hotel Bristol Spa Resort.

The princely building stands out for its architecture with light Baroque touches and is embellished by a large terrace facing the sea, from which an ultra-exclusive panorama of the Ligurian Riviera can be admired.

Certainly an occasion not to be missed will be to relax in its Erre Spa Bristol, all-around services and treatments within a wellness oasis that covers a good 2,000 square meters of area.

As for the core of Grand Hotel Bristol‘s hospitality, in the Portofino Suite you will feel as if you are staying right in the heart of the waters that lap the Ligurian Riviera.
Inside a sophisticated panoramic suite, illuminated by peach and salmon nuances, you can relax on a large private terrace, an authentic belvedere just for you, perhaps enjoying a good aperitif.

And speaking about of picturesque locations on the sea, the Rapallo Castle, built in the mid-1500s to thwart looting by Saracen pirates, is really worth a visit.

Grand Hotel Miramare

In Santa Margherita Ligure, not even a ten-minute drive from Portofino, is the Grand Hotel Miramare, one of the most refined and exclusive hotels on the entire Ligurian coast.

The sophisticated architecture of the building, with its Baroque reminiscences, is but a prelude to the superb lifestyle on which the Miramare’s hospitality concept is based.
The hotel has 78 rooms and suites. In addition to this, you can relax in an enchanting saltwater swimming pool set in a tropical garden or enjoy a romantic evening at the Ligurian haute cuisine restaurant: the Vistamare, located on a panoramic terrace directly overlooking the horizon, where sky and sea seem to melt together.

The Miramare‘s interiors retain the Baroque touch that graces the palace’s facade, but the interior design of each suite is uniquely conceived.
For example, the Signature Suite Miramare, the most prestigious, is a true jewel of contemporary interior design, where everything is carefully designed to compose an aesthetic continuation of the tones and lights of the outdoor landscape.

From the soft lines, the designer wallpaper, the shades of gray and white to the textures of wood-everything is in perfect balance with the breathtaking view from the panoramic balcony, and the result is an interior design that is both refined and comfortable.
Luxury Italian brands including Arflex and Rimadesio were selected for the furniture.

If you’re in the mood for a few outings, not far from the Miramare there is the Cathedral of Santa Margherita, a jewel of Baroque architecture that hosts many wonderful paintings.

Excelsior Palace

A quarter of an hour from Portofino lies the costal town of Rapallo, home to the magnificent Excelsior Palace.
A true triumph of luxury lifestyle and high-end hospitality, the Excelsior Palace is a grand and sumptuous palace overlooking the Gulf of Tigullio and is one of the best luxury hotels on the Portofino coast.

Its suites, many of which overlook the sea, are furnished with superb Baroque taste as well as embellished with authentic antiques and period prints.

For example, the Presidential Suite, the most prestigious, is located on the top floor of the Excelsior and therefore enjoys the most exclusive location because of its large panoramic terrace, even equipped with a Jacuzzi City Spa whirlpool, the ideal location for wonderful receptions or intimate evenings.
The suite also boasts a living room, a Master Bedroom and two Exclusive Rooms: a made-in-Italy hospitality of excellence.

For meals, you are spoiled for choice: breakfast is served at the Lord Byron while, in summer, you can enjoy a haute cuisine dinner at the panoramic Eden Roc restaurant, overlooking the sea and therefore highly specialized in Mediterranean cuisine.
