Two terraces and a private beach complete with Beach Concierge service, restaurant with open kitchen, oyster and sunset bar with Jacuzzi overlooking the sea. The new Marina di Bardi Beach Club was inaugurated

On the occasion of its 120th birthday, the Grand Hotel Bristol in Rapallo, the accommodation facility that presides over the last hill of the Ligurian town before Zoagli, inaugurates the Marina di Bardi Beach Club, the new beach resort that promises spectacular sunsets overlooking the Portofino Coast.

Structured in an intelligent way, because it was designed to accommodate different types of customers who will be able to enjoy moments of relaxation each in their own way, the new Marina enjoys both an intimate beach with direct access by land and sea, and two reserved terraces used as a relaxation area with hydromassage pool overlooking the sea, Oyster Bar, restaurant with open kitchen and Sunset Bar.

To reach it - it is not far from the center of Zoagli and a 5-minute drive from Rapallo - you can take a delightful stone staircase, set between rock walls and wild vegetation which leads directly to the beach or, alternatively following a second direction, to the Sunset Bar at the Marina.

With a range of vitamin shades that offer spectacular views during the day and in the evening, the plus of the location is undoubtedly the vegetation: glimpses of Mediterranean greenery all around provide a naturalistic setting that makes this corner of strong>Tigullioa living jewel.

Sea, relaxation and fun: two distinct areas, for two types of use

Divided into two distinct areas, although homogeneously integrated with the landscape, the Marina di Bardi is aimed both at those who wish to enjoy moments of privacy and at those who prefer to exploit the vital energy of the Ligurian Sea.

The beach area, in fact, is designed to be family-friendly and has sun loungers on the drying area where it is also possible to take part in various water activities. The Beach Club area, on the other hand, located on the first terrace equipped with a Jacuzzi overlooking the sea, is dedicated to those who wish to spend moments of relaxation and privacy. An idea that can be implemented by the possibility of taking advantage of the wellness treatments offered by Erre Spa, specialized in face and body treatments and integrated into the Grand Hotel Bristol in Rapallo.

For moments of taste, Marina di Bardi Beach Club offers a double culinary experience, namely the Oyster Bar and the "pieds dans l'eau" restaurant established in Mediterranean cuisine and fish-based dishes, traditional and revisited.

The open kitchen, led by the starred Executive Chef Andrea Cannalire, completes the experience in the spirit of Dolce Vita 2.0 - of which the Grand Hotel Bristol in Rapallo is made spokesman.

Grand Hotel Bristol in Rapallo: the Dolcevita 2.0

The concept of luxury which the Grand Hotel Bristol Portofino Coast expresses has to do with a slogan recently coined by the Group, which tells of a 'Dolcevita 2.0'. A way of living, even before staying, which finds meaning in a relaxed, almost informal ease. A luxury that simply speaks of comfort and feeling good.

The environments of the Grand Hotel Bristol tell it clearly: luxury, yes, because the detail is carefully considered as a priority, but even before that there is the customer experience which he must feel at ease, in the common areas as in the 80 rooms the hotel has.

The result is expanded situations, in which modern furnishings dialogue with contemporary art pieces chosen by the curators of the Nuar Art Gallery Valentina Ferrari and Flaminia Ciattini, which for the second consecutive year is collaborating with the structure by organizing exhibitions and themed events such as live painting or the association of local wines with selected works of art .

Thus the structure, equipped with a wonderful Art Nouveau façade and built in 1904 when the then owners (the Costa family) wanted to give life to the hotel most modern of the time, today under the direction of the General Manager Riccardo Bortolotti, is heir to an important history that it has been able to preserve over time without losing sight of the The importance of remaining up-to-date and appealing to a contemporary, national and international audience.

It is one of those typical hotels where people once went from the plains, or from the mountains even beyond the border, to 'winter': with an elegant and typically imposing style, it maintains the elegant identity of a time evolving in the soul: today, staying at the Grand Bristol Hotel in Rapallo means being able to enjoy a series of services that range from taste experiences to local activities.

From local wine tastings to cooking classes (to which will soon be added a private vegetable garden where you can participate in the cultivation of herbs and fruits!); from treatments at the Erre Spa, to wellness programs in the Wellness area. Up to the gourmet proposal of the Le Cupole restaurant, led since 2024 by the starred chef Andrea Cannalire characterized by a proactive sensitivity capable of surprising taste, sight, heart.
