About the hotel
SETTING & STYLE
Originally a monastery, the building that was to become the Hotel Splendid Mare was raided with such frequency by sixteenth century Saracen pirates, that the monks eventually abandoned it to the sheep that roamed the coastal hills.
In the nineteenth century, Baron Baratta revived the wreck, converting it into a family summer house. In 1901 Mr. Ruggero Valentini, the pioneer of tourism at Portofino, transformed Villa Baratta into the Grand Hotel Splendid. Since then, the hotel has played host to the most famous and noble families in Europe and the cream of the international jet-set. The Duke of Windsor was the first person to sign the visitors' book, and in the 1950’s a long list of international stars such as Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart all stayed at the hotel.
Today the Hotel Splendido A Belmond Hotel, still has a patrician air. The principal reception rooms are furnished with old world glasses, gilt console tables and Persian rugs. A dolce vita lifestyle awaits at this iconic Portofino retreat
