Press Release featuring New Services and Amenities...
The Excelsior Palace Hotel in Rapallo opens the 2013 season with great news.

First of all new suites have been added to the seventh floor which is home to the Presidential Suite, the latter enhanced by a second bathroom and a Jacuzzi tub on the terrace. The so-called "Relax Suite" with private sauna has been created, ideal to pamper yourself and relax. A further touch is also given here by the Jacuzzi tub positioned on the terrace. This new Suite is connected with the Presidential Suite. Furthermore, we have created an additional Classic Suite with sitting-room, bedroom and two bathrooms.

The area of the Beach Club will be equipped with a private jetty to offer Guests boat trips to Portofino, San Fruttuoso and Cinque Terre and thanks to it Customers aboard a yacht will be able to use the hotel services, primarily the restaurant but also, for example, the Beach Club and Spa.

News from the "Duke of Windsor" Congress Centre
Posted September 10, 2012
It is well known that the Congress Centre of the Excelsior is the ideal place for important events.

What still few people know is that the conference areas have recently been restyled. They now include new and valuable furniture in the empire style and fine paintings dating from the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Even the stunning terrace of the Congress Centre has been enriched with the addition of flowered plants.

These new touches offer the rare opportunity to organize events at the seaside in an absolutely prestigious and elegant setting.

Such an atmosphere, together with a professional service, guarantees a successful meeting in a location of great appeal: Rapallo Bay and its marina on one side and the Portofino Coast on the other, a legendary destination.

Posted August 28, 2012
Various entertainment inside our hotel is guaranteed by a broad choice of culinary events such as tasting (oil, chocolate, local food for example), cocktail mixing, mini cookery school. Tailor made proposals on request.

Thanks to the unique location of the hotel there exist many exciting activities for your free time:
- Boat or sailing excursions: starting point at Rapallo’s Port (only five minute sto walk), these excursions will show you the most beautiful sides of the charming Portofino Coast and Cinque Terre.
- Golf Club of Rapallo, a stone’s throw away from the hotel. You will find challenges according to your individual golfing level. Great fun, especially for passionate golfers, promises the putting green competitions and the clinic golf group lessons. www.circologolftennisrapallo.it
- “Indian Forest” Adventure Park, in the inland of the Tigullio gulf, an attraction that offers exciting trails in a charming area, set in a beautiful pine forest, in full compliance of trees and natural environment. Evolutions hanging in the air, walking on ropes, climbing, jumping, everything in the greatest safety and on various levels.
- “Formula 1” Competition at “Circuito of Carasco”, kart racing-track which can be reached after a 30 minute car ride from the hotel. www.ckc.it
- Miniera di Gambatesa, in Val Graveglia, behind the Tigullio Gulf, a unique world of galleries, tunnels, trains that travel through tens of kilometres deep in the mountains. Here’s the Gambatesa Mining Museum, built inside an old manganese mine. It still seems to feel the blows of pickaxes, the songs of fatigue, the heavy footsteps of the miners at work. www.minieragambatesa.it
- Funivia Rapallo-Montallegro, a cable car connects in a few minutes the center of Rapallo with the Sanctuary of Montallegro and offers an interesting and valuable trip to enjoy from above the whole Tigullio Gulf.
- Sightseeings in Genoa, a city to be discovered. “La Superba” (The Superb, due to its glorious past) offers its visitors villas, palaces, castles, fortresses, old aqueducts, theatres and museums which witness its millenary history. Don’t forget the “Acquario” to dive into the greatest exhibition of aquatic biodiversity (70 exhibitions tanks with spectacular settings).
