5 Belmond Hotel Splendido Portofino, Italy
First on the bucket list.
Get that bucket list out and put this exquisite property at the top. Once in a lifetime, everyone should indulge at the Presidential Suite, the definition of Portofino living. Enjoy large verandas where you can soak in dramatic views of The Bay, Castello Brown, and the charming fishing village. Take your place in history and feel the magic of the ancient village that once inspired so many artistic and literary inhabitants. A spectacular dinner at La Terrazza enchants the senses from Italian culinary masterpieces to magnificent vistas––some of the most dramatic in all of Italy. To be here is to know paradise. Sail around the Gulf of Tigullio on the resort’s private Chris-craft Corsair 36 that can sail eight. Many fantastic exploration itineraries are available to discover, like sailing to Cinque Terre, a film-inspired road trip tour of Sicily, or cruising to Mallorca. Other luxurious activities include kayaking along the Italian Riviera, shopping in hidden wonders of Genoa, and romantic sunset dinners. Feel the wonder of rejuvenation in the shade of a lush garden as you enjoy a sauna and indulge in elegant, lavish treatments at the Wellness Centre. belmond.com/hotel-splendido-portofino
