Southern Europe’s Most Exceptional Suites

Exploring Belmond’s new signature suites, remarkably unique places to stay across Italy, Spain and Portugal.

Because you didn’t come this far to stay in an entry-level room. You deserve to stay in the very best suite, in the very best hotel, in Europe’s most iconic destinations.

La Dogaressa Suite, Hotel Cipriani, A Belmond Hotel Venice

The Dogaressa Suite affords awe-inspiring views over St Mark’s square and the Doge’s Palace

Honouring the glamour of 18th-century Venice, La Dogaressa Suite is filled with original artworks, vintage furniture and fabrics from Fortuny and Rubelli. The view to the Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Square is like a Canaletto painting.

Hotel Cipriani is mostly a contemporary hotel with an idyllic location, removed from the city noise yet five minutes by boat to the charming, winding streets.

We love Palazzo Vendramin, the 18th-century wing where the signature suite is located. You sleep in Venice, from a bygone time.

Grand Hotel Timeo Two-Bedroom Suite, Sicily

Lounge area on the terrace of the Two-Bedroom Suite

For a magnificent hotel location it’s difficult to rival Grand Hotel Timeo, overlooking the sea and Taormina rooftops in Sicily. And the ultimate stay is this two-bedroom suite.

One bedroom in the Two-Bedroom Suite

The generous bedrooms and indoor living areas are impressive. But this suite is all about the terrace, with 180-degree views that have inspired travellers for over a century. 

Two-Bedroom Pool Suite at Villa Sant’Andrea, Sicily

Pool of the Two-Bedroom Suite

Villa Sant’Andrea is Belmond’s intimate Sicily property, on the beach in Taormina. It’s like a romantic private residence, in an aristocratic mansion from the early 20th century.

Similar to Grand Hotel Timeo, the top suite has been rebranded after a contemporary interior renovation. Although, when you have such an exclusive Sicilian terrace, you won’t be spending much time indoors. 

Matthew Williamson Suite at La Residencia, Mallorca

Signature suites are not just about the views. British designer Matthew Williamson created this captivating suite at La Residencia, a Belmond hotel in Mallorca.

Be swept away by the vibrant colours, botanical imagery, luxe textures and artistic history of this remarkable space.

La Residencia is an intimate and peaceful village in the mountains, where an island’s artisanal history is being preserved. We think it’s one of Europe’s most original and charming places to stay.

Villa Margherita, Amalfi Coast

Garden at Belmond Villa Margherita

On the steep slopes of Ravello, Villa Margherita is the Amalfi Coast’s most exclusive and secluded hideaway. It’s separate to Caruso, A Belmond Hotel, but you can walk five minutes through fragrant gardens to use all the hotel’s facilities, including the legendary infinity pool.

Just wait until you see the balcony at Villa Margherita…

The villa’s garden is stupendous. Head inside to two large suites and revel in a space that is simply impossible to find elsewhere across the Amalfi Coast.

Ava Gardner Suite at Splendido Mare, Portofino

Ava Gardner Suite terrace

The ultimate place to be on the Italian Riviera. After a major renovation, the Ava Gardner Suite is the height of indulgence on the Italian Riviera, reflecting a time when the world’s glitterati took their holidays in Portofino.

Ava Gardner Suite bathroom

The suite unfolds across the entire top floor of Splendido Marea Belmond Hotel, Portofino. It’s right on the edge of the water, overlooking the sea and most celebrated streets in all the Italian Riviera.

La Dolce Vita Suite at Hotel Splendido

Living room in the Dolce Vita Suite

The bigger sister to Splendido Mare, Splendido, a Belmond Hotel, is five minutes uphill from the water, in a redeveloped 16th-century monastery.

Bathroom in the Dolce Vita Suite

We recommend the Dolce Vita Suite, where a new 21st-century indulgence comes to the old resort town. Look out for the Baronessa Suite designed by Brudnizki, which will launch later this season.

Breakfast with a view on the terrace of Dolce Vita Suite

Of course there is a terrace with a view. Many people can enjoy the view in these popular Italian destinations, yet only a select few can have a view all to themselves.

Limonaia Suite at Villa San Michelle, Tuscany

Limonaia Suite terrace and private plunge pool

A heated plunge pool and private gardens await you at Villa San Michele, just outside Florence, where a Renaissance villa evokes the charms of a bygone century. 

View from the bedroom of the Limonaia Suite

The suite is delightful. One of rural Italy’s most prestigious things to do is book the entire Limonaia Villa for up to six people.

Signature Suite at Castello di Casole, Tuscany

Castello di Casole Suite

We adore the diversity of the four signature suites at Castello di Casole, each with its own distinct design and Tuscan era.

Dominated by Italian fabrics and antiques, the Castello di Casole Suite is located in the hotel’s historical building, very much an immersion in the Tuscany of old. They are recently renovated.

Presidential Suites at Reid’s Palace, Madeira

Main bathroom of the Churchill Presidential Suite

History is strong at Reid’s Palace, a hotel that’s welcomed guests on the island of Madeira, Portugal, for 130 years. For a view over the Atlantic Ocean there’s nowhere better than the Churchill Presidential Suite.

For historic revelry consider the George Bernard Shaw Suite, with its lofty ceilings, rich woods, Chinese hand-painted wallpapers and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows.
