Splendido Mare Hotel opens its doors in Portofino, epitomizing Italian Riviera glamour

A new era of timeless Italian glamour begins with the reopening of the Splendido Mare, a Belmond Hotel (part of LVMH), on the Italian Riviera. With the renovation of the legendary property, offering stunning interior design and exceptional guest experiences, an enticing allure of La Dolce Vita wafts over the celebrated harbor town.

The Splendido Mare is ready to welcome travelers avid for exceptional experiences with its 14 completely renovated rooms. Faithful to its heritage as a one-time guest house for fishermen, the hotel invites guests to share an art de vivre infused by the natural beauty of Portofino harbor. “Our teams have been working tirelessly to create a new standard in relaxed Italian sophistication, and now, the true Belmond magic begins. Together with our guests, we can look ahead to the return of La Dolce Vita by the sea with friends and family enjoying days out on the water, slow afternoons on the beach and joyful evenings on the terrace at the new restaurant, DaV Mare,” comments Belmond Roeland Vos, CEO & President. Designed with Da Vittorio Group, the new restaurant ushers in a new level of gastronomic excellence to the Ligurian Coast.

To discover the enchanting Italian Riviera coast, the Splendido Mare invites guests to set sail aboard a traditional Gozzo Ligurian fishing boat to visit San Fruttuoso Bay and its magnificent abbey, stop for a swim to the submerged statue of Christ the Abyss, or dive into the crystal-clear waters of Punta Chiappa. Maritime excursions can be accompanied by picnic lunches prepared by the Dav Mare restaurant, or fresh caught local seafood. Fans of nautical sports will revel in the excitement of the ‘Regate di Primavera – Splendido Mare Cup’, which returns from May 6-9, 2021, organized with partners including the Yacht Club Italiano, to celebrate the renaissance of the Splendido Mare.

The majestic Portofino Regional Park offers a chance to discover exhilarating landscapes and the fabled ‘Path of the Kiss’, named after two young lovers who exchanged their last embrace there. The trail stretches from San Rocco to Camogli to San Fruttuoso, featuring absolutely amazing views of the bay. Another memorable experience is half-day excursions accompanied by botanist guides to discover the secret health and beauty benefits of local mountain plants and herbs.

The Splendido Mare is the ideal refuge on the Piazzetta for discerning travelers. The interior design by Festen Architecture is an elegant blend of references to nautical heritage and the cinematic glamour of the 1950s with mid-century modern elements. The colors of the rooms and suites are inspired by bright Ligurian building hues, set off with luxurious materials by Loro Piana and Rubelli. An art collection curated by ARTIQ includes specially commissioned pieces by Italian artist Gabriele Cappelli, and staff uniforms have been created by Italian fashion designer Arthus Arbesser.

In addition to the Splendido Mare, throughout the month of May Belmond will welcome guests back to other exceptional properties for lovers of Italy, including the Cipriani in Venice, Villa San Michele in Florence and Caruso in Ravello.

Yakymour, home of Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan, thè place in the mid 50's 'till the late 80's, where fashion, art, beauty and love meet each other, from all over the world.... Playing as a child in the garden of Yakymour was a happy, innocent time, thanx to ‘Grandma’ Yaky and to Sadruddin, where I could be fully myself and forget ‘the bad things’, and get some strenght. The Last 30 years working as cosmetologist and as a make-up artist for television, theatre, film, fotoshoots, fashion shows, celebrities and individuals gave me a trunk full of experience. My work brought me all over the world and had photoshoot's on location in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, India a.o. At this Blog you will find many reviews of cosmetics, fashion, art, and everything beautiful, as an ode to Begum Om Habibeh 'Yaky' Aga Khan, and named after the place where 'everything' was beautiful: Yakymour. You will find here all the in and outs about skincare, perfums, and make-up, the do's and don'ts, the why's and how's.... The stories behind, and some great interviews... So when you have any question.... please ask. Come on in.... feel yourself at home at Yakymour! Jean Amr P.S. My apologies for future grammatical errors. English is not my mother language :)
