Grand Hotel Miramare

A white art-nouveau building.

A pearl set between the blue of the sea and the green of the park. This is the pure and simple picture of a place that colours every moment spent in the heart of the Italian Riviera.

Welcome to the Hotel Italian Riviera 1, Santa Margherita Ligure, a charming four star Grand Hotel where life is in colour everyday.

Hotel Italian Riviera 1 is in Santa Margherita Ligure, panoramically situated between Rapallo and Portofino. Easily reached by all means of transport, this Hotel is the ideal base from which to explore the coast and hinterland of the Tigullio area, which includes enchanting Portofino and the natural treasures of the Nature Park and Protected Marine Area, the fascinating coastal towns on the Golfo Paradiso, and the Cinque Terre (Unesco World Heritage).

Hotel Italian Riviera 1 was built in 1903 by Giacomo Costa, who entrusted its management to Lina Kuoni Stoppani, widow of the founder of the famous Swiss travel agency. It was one of the first Grand Hotels on the Riviera, rapidly becoming a must for the international “jet set” of the time.

The elegance of the Hotel’s white façade strikes the eye even from a considerable distance, while closer inspection reveals its sophisticated trompe l’oeils and floral decorations in the Leonardesque fresco style, a work that restored the Grand Hotel to its original turn of the century splendour.

In the Grand Hotel’s large park it’s easy to feel that Spring is eternal. Treat yourself to a stroll amongst picturesque palms and maritime pines, camellias and oleanders, pittosporums and a century old cedar of Lebanon, and terraces planted with lavender and aromatic herbs. Take a deep breath and … re-blossom.

A view of the Gulf, bracing sea air and the fragrance of flowers.

Hospitality is an art that must combine and share the gifts of nature, with the addition of telling details. Behold the enchanting Mediterranean Garden, with its pergola and swimming pool.

Well worth a moment or two. Here you have all the time in the world.

The Hotel has 84 rooms, suites and junior suites, some with balconies overlooking the Golfo del Tigullio or the Mediterranean park. Pale pastel tones prevail: azure, green and pink. Recently restored stucco work and wooden flooring recreate the splendour of the original interiors. An art nouveau atmosphere enhanced by the comforts of a more contemporary lifestyle.

Do you hold with tradition or prefer more informal solutions? At Hotel Italian Riviera 1, with its evocative atmosphere, its park, swimming pool and garden, its views over the Gulf, and its cuisine, we can plan your dream reception here, whatever it is.

It’s your special day, do it in a place that’s always been special. The Grand Hotel in Santa Margherita is the symbol of the Italian Riviera and the most exclusive holiday destination for over 100 years.

It is a very popular location for wedding receptions, brunch the next day, and much more.
