Hotel Splendido, Portofino

It’s simply a matter of adding a couple of vowels to English, you muse idly to yourself. After all, below you is Portofino; an exceptionally fine port - a natural harbour with white yachts gently rocking at anchor. And surrounding you is Hotel Splendido, a hotel that is undeniably…well, you understand the idea.

What makes the Splendido so true to its name? The picture postcard setting on the side of a hill, covered in fragrant flowers and soothing green forestry is a great start. The magical views over the Ligurian Riviera and the Mediterranean also help. And then there is the hotel itself with its stylish rooms, attentive service and facilities that include fine dining, a wonderful fitness centre, tennis courts and access to two championship quality golf courses.
