In Italy, the newly renovated Grand Hotel Portovenere has debuted two new suites, the Castello Suite and the Poeti Suite.
Located in Portovenere, which could be considered the sixth Cinque Terre village, Grand Hotel Portovenere has 56 rooms, including the two new suites—all of which were influenced by the coastal Italian location, as well as modern design and amenities.
The 540-square-foot Castello Suite has a bedroom, living room and two baths. There is a terrace overlooking the harbor, with views of Doria Castle, a structure that dates back to the 1000s.
The 700-square-foot Poeti Suite also has a bedroom, living room and two baths. There are large windows throughout that reveal views of the "Gulf of Poets." Guests can also see the Island of Palmaria, the mountain range of the Apuan Alps and the villages of Lerici and Tellaro from the windows.
For dining, the property has Palmeria Restaurant and Venus Bar, which have inside/outside dining. There is also a 33-ft. luxury motorboat, the Sporting Beach Club, as well as Portovenere Wellness Center.
