The Experience

Excelsior Palace Hotel

Uniquely located, on the bay of Rapallo to the east and overlooking the Portofino Coast to the west, the Excelsior Palace Hotel has been restored to its turn-of-the-century glory when it formed an obligatory staging-post for the international beau monde.  Close to the Porto Carlo Riva marina, 500 metres from the city centre and the local railway station and 32 km from Genoa International Airport.

The hotel has 109 double rooms, 12 junior suites and 7 suites, all of them with sea view, mini bar, bathtub and shower, hair dryer, bathrobes and slippers, direct-dial telephones, satellite TV, private safety deposit box, room service, laundry and dry cleaning and individually controlled heat/a-c.

The Lord Byron Restaurant serves the finest Italian food and wine; the Yachting Bar is the ideal place to enjoy a cocktail; the Eden Roc Restaurant overlooks the sea; and the Sporting Bar is by the swimming pool.

Recreational facilities include a private beach, panoramic outdoor pool, indoor heated pool, 120 cabanas, Beauty Farm for massages and beauty treatments, etc., fitness center with Technogym machines, Finnish sauna and steam bath.  Near the hotel is an 18-hole golf course, tennis, watersports, trekking and horse racing.

The Excelsior offers a wide variety of choice to those wishing to organize personalized parties, receptions, cocktails and refreshments, business lunches and dinners.  The hotel’s terraces and reception rooms are particularly suitable for private functions and wedding receptions.  The Duke of Windsor Congress Centre, with 9 meeting rooms, is equipped to serve functions for up to 450 people.

Facing the bay of Rapallo to the east and the headland of Portofino to the west, the unique setting of Excelsior Palace Hotel has inspired a return to the elegance of the early 1900s. Guestrooms and suites boast views of the stunning Gulf of Tigullio. Don’t miss the Beach Club for its panoramic swimming pool, or Eden Roc Lounge & Restaurant, with its sea-view terraces. Be sure to spend time in the Health & Fitness Club, for its gym and indoor swimming pool, and the spa, for personalized treatments.
