Rimini Luxury Hotels
Best areas in Rimini for luxury hotelsThe small Italian resort town of Rimini, based right on the aquamarine Adriatic and framed by expanses of soft sandy beachfront, boasts an abundance of luxury hotels. For a seafront location with immediate access to the historic town center, stay along the main stretch of beach, from Bellariva up to the fountain-studded Frederico Fellini Park. For a peaceful beachfront setting, stay slightly north of here, above the San Giuliano a Mare area. Or, if you'd prefer to be surrounded by heritage sights and rustic restaurants, stay in the town center.

Rimini’s local culinary culture champions seafood – find fresh steamed mussels and delicate lemon-drizzled sea bass in Rimini’s ritzy beachfront restaurants.

The most unique things to do in RiminiCharter a private yacht from Rimini and explore the glistening, blue-green Adriatic. Relax as your luxury, bright-white yacht cruises out into a calm, quiet, and secluded nook of Rimini’s coast, and sunbathe on the deck or dive into the warm aquamarine water. Back in central Rimini, history buffs can’t miss out on seeing the Tiberius Bridge – an arching ancient Roman relic – and the towering Roman Arch of Augustus, an old-world city gate dating to 27 BC. After a full day of sightseeing, there’s no better way to unwind than in one of Rimini’s exclusive spas – these can be found in Rimini’s range of luxury hotels. For a uniquely pampering rejuvenation session, visit the thermal spas in nearby Riccione – south of Rimini – which offer mud baths, hot stone treatments, and bubbling whirlpools.
Best ways to get around RiminiIf you’re staying alongside the beachfront, most of your Rimini travel can be made on foot alone, as the distance between the beach and the central old town area is quite short. Of course, after a night dining and drinking vintage wines in one of the central restaurants, you won’t always want to walk – make use of Rimini’s taxicabs, which can be booked in advance from your hotel or restaurant. To get to and from your hotel and the airport, Rimini’s luxury accommodations offer private airport shuttle services.
