Overlooking the yachts anchored in the Mediterranean’s glistening Bay of Rapallo, five-star Excelsior Palace Hotel defines luxury with its exceptional sophistication and service. The turn-of-the-century grandeur starts as you step onto the cool marble floors of the lobby, where opulent chandeliers soften the light from the sea-facing windows. Continuing its sense of refinement, the hotel’s restaurants and bars deliver creative dishes and exquisite cocktails whether you are relaxing by the infinity pools or taking in the views from the terrace.

  • Relax in one of 119 guestrooms finished with authentic prints and antique furniture 
  • Savor fresh Italian cuisine that uses only the best local ingredients 
  • Treat yourself to an indulgent outdoor massage or unwind in one of the outdoor Jacuzzis
  • Spend your days at the Beach Club swimming in the infinity pools overlooking the sea
  • Book yourself a boat excursions into the historic bay from the Beach Club
  • Visit Cinque Terre and Portofino and explore their quaint villages and hills 

Take a sumptuous cruise around the bay on a private yacht from the hotel jetty. Tailor your adventure to jet along the coast or find a secluded cove to moor up for some snorkeling in the crystal waters before a Champagne lunch. For golf lovers, there is nothing better than a round of golf overlooking the beautiful ocean, or travel further afield to visit the monuments and hilltops of Cinque Terre.
