Recently opened in Portofino, Italy: five new suites on the top floor of the ultra-exclusive Hotel Splendido, an Orient-Express property perched on the cliffs overlooking the yacht-dotted bay. A top-to-bottom renovation has transformed the floor, creating three Deluxe Suites and two Junior Deluxe Suites—all with sigh-inducing views from spacious balconies. Flooded with natural light, these five suites are decorated in a contemporary Italian style. The interiors are marked by cool colors inspired by the sea and sky. Large bathrooms have separate showers and baths, plus twin sinks.
The glam Hotel Splendido is connected to its sister hotel, the harborside Splendido Mare, by a lovely walking path (10 minutes walk). There is also a complimentary shuttle service between the two properties. For more information, visit www.hotelsplendido.com
