Grand Hotel Bristol Resort & Spa


Classic Italian-style charm meets modern-day facilities in this much loved hotel.

Standing majestically on a hillside and featuring superb views of the Italian Riviera, this elegant hotel is a firm favourite with Kuoni guests. Dating back to 1908, the hotel has a glamorous and elegant Liberty-style façade and is set in parkland surrounded by fragrant rhododendrons and azaleas. Inside, the décor is a combination of classic and modern and the service is exemplary. Spend days lounging on the sun terrace and enjoy superb views of the Bay of Rapallo and Portofino whilst cooling off in the pool (open seasonally from the end of May to September).

Located only 150 metres from the sea, a walk along the seafront (via the main road) makes for an ideal break during the day. Embrace the warm rays of the sun whilst admiring the pretty marina and colourful boats. The hotel has two bars (one only open during the summer) and two restaurants – a breakfast room with a panoramic terrace and Le Cupole, which has a fantastic rooftop setting and delicious international cuisine.

The rooms each feature a classic and comfortable design. Superior Rooms have a side sea view and overlook the town of Rapallo while the calming Deluxe Rooms have a small balcony with full sea views. For a little more space opt for a Junior Suite.
