Splendido Mare, a Belmond Hotel

Portofino, Italy

Why You Will Love It

This intimate, 14-room hotel reopened its doors in 2021 after a full renovation. Paying homage to its former role as a guesthouse for fisherman and location by the harbor, Splendido Mare mixes nautical touches with artisanal details. And if the décor doesn’t make you feel like you’re in Portofino, the stunning views will do the trick.

Defining Factor

It has the best of both worlds. You can enjoy Splendido Mare’s central location in the heart of Portofino or access the facilities at Splendido, the sister hotel perched on the hillside overlooking the town. From Splendido Mare, you can stroll to the local shops, see the coast from the hotel’s traditional wooden gozzo, or take a courtesy shuttle to the Beach club at the Bay of Paraggi. Want to play tennis, have a spa treatment, or take a dive in a pool? In 10 minutes you can be at Splendido!

Don't Leave Without

Doing the complimentary excursion on the hotel’s gozzo, a traditional wooden fishing boat. You’ll experience the true dolce vita as you experience the Italian Riviera by water.


Splendido Mare’s main restaurant, DaV Mare, is a collaboration of the Cerea brothers (who also have a three-Michelin-starred restaurant in Bergamo) and Chef Roberto Villa. Here you can savor fresh, local fare with a modern twist. For breakfast, enjoy a-la-carte dishes in your room or on the restaurant terrace. And no trip to Italy is complete without something sweet, so head to the Gelateria San Giorgio for gelato.
