Following the refurbishments of Spendido Mare, A Belmond Hotel, Portofino in 2021 and Maroma, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Maya, slated to reopen in May 2023, Belmond will be embarking on a comprehensive renovation of Splendido, A Belmond Hotel, Portofino with the first phase complete in June 2023.
“Splendido is a true icon and so our approach to the renovation project was similar to that of a portrait painter,” said Martin Brudnizki, founder of Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. ” We are creating a design centered on the building and one that is as much a restoration, as a rejuvenation.”
Taking place over several years, the team will undertake a meticulous restoration of the former 16th century Benedictine monastery, honouring the history of the building, while sensitively injecting contemporary relevance. Over the course of each summer reopening, the hotel will unveil brand new spaces, with the first reveal taking place in June 2023. This will include a renovated pool area and new intimate, family villa dining experience at The Pool Grill restaurant, as well as the complete redesign of the Baronessa Suite.
Inspired by the noble Palazzos of the region, the elevated accommodation offering will blend the rich tradition and storytelling of the Italian Riviera, with contemporary comfort and elegance.
