Grand Hotel Bristol Spa Resort

Grand by name, grand by nature on Italy’s Portofino coast

Grand Hotel Bristol Spa Resort makes an instant impression. This turn-of-the-century building, in the Liberty style, is a rose-pink landmark between the green hills and blue Gulf of Tigullio. Once a glamorous destination for Grand Tourers, today it invites guests to experience a modern-day take on la dolce vita – blending timeless charm with contemporary elegance.     

Blurring the boundaries between inside and out, the rooms and suites at Grand Hotel Bristol celebrate the great outdoors. Doors open up to balconies – and woodland or sea views. Step outside for laps of luxury in the pool, or ‘me time’ at The Erre Spa, the showstopping centrepiece of the hotel. By day, enjoy crisp pizzas, herby focaccia and poké bowls pool-side, followed by homemade gelato. Say 'cin cin' at the Lounge or Pool Bar. And for dinner, choose from La Veranda with its wraparound views from the terrace, or inventive fine dining at Le Cupole – with menus curated by an Alain Ducasse protégé.

It would be easy for a stay at Grand Hotel Bristol to be a case of eat, sleep, spa, repeat. But the hotel’s postcard-worthy position makes days out a must. Walk to Rapallo, soar skyward on the cable car to Montallegro Sanctuary, or simply sip espressos and people-watch on Portofino’s famous square. For a dash of culture, there’s the Lace Museum and captivating Cinque Terre villages. While Rapallo Marina is the ideal casting off point for boat trips along the coast. Talk to the concierge who acts as a compass to undiscovered spots and walking trails. 

Enjoy your stay!

Very quiet and comfortable

Nice welcoming, felt expected and well taken care of. A pleasant surprise with an upgrade in a sea view bedroom, and the fruits and procecco I had ordered as a birthday present to my companion. We did use the spa, also quite nice.

Perfection

From driving to the entrance area to leaving everything ( and I mean everything) was immaculately by the book with the right level of attention, discretion, distance, respect and foreseeing our wishes. I am traveling really a lot and this has been unseen for the last ten years in Europe.
