Hotel Santa Margherita Palace is a one-of-a-kind luxury boutique hotel experience in Santa Margherita Ligure, just 10 minutes from Portofino on the Italian Riviera. This stunning luxury hotel with spa is just a few steps from the sea and boasts 26 en-suite rooms which partnered with excellent service and a relaxed atmosphere, makes it one of the best luxury hotel choices in Santa Margherita Ligure. This gem on the Ligurian coast offers guests a more authentic experience than Portofino and there are some great restaurants within easy walking distance that serve fresh seafood straight from the fishermen's boats.
Take a trip to the beach or relax under one of the umbrellas in the garden at the front of the hotel where you can relax, enjoy a coffee and get stuck into your favourite book. Golf and tennis can be arranged just 10 minutes from the hotel in Rapallo which has one of the most beautiful golf courses in Italy. During the summer months day trips can be arranged with the multi-lingual concierge to Portofino, Cinque Terre and the charming town of Camogli. Take some time out in the mini spa where there are massaging showers, a sauna, steam room and a great choice of treatments including thermal mud treatments and bespoke treatments.
There is no restaurant at Hotel Santa Margherita Palace but there is a lounge bar which is open all day where you can enjoy a coffee, aperitivo or pre-dinner cocktail. Within walking distance there are some lovely authentic restaurants serving sea to table fresh fish and traditional pesto Genovese made from local pine nuts, locally grown garlic and garden-fresh basil. One of Santa Margherita's best kept secrets and off the beaten track is L'Insolita Zuppa ('not your ordinary soup') where Margherita and her partner Luca serve traditional Ligurian dishes with a modern twist.
