The ClubHotel Riu Karamboa has a real desert oasis feel to it. Looks-wise, the spacious property is reminiscent of a sultan’s palace – expect domed ceilings and arched windows.
Everything from the suite rooms – with their separate lounge areas and dark-wood furnishings – to the sprawling pool area lives up to the hotel’s 5-star standards.
There's a large swimming pool here. It’s got a built-in whirlpool bath and a handy swim-up bar, and is framed with terraces studded with palms and sunbeds.
Praia de Salines Beach is this hotel’s next door neighbour. Its flat sands roll out for miles, encountering tiny beach bars and top snorkelling spots on the way.
FOOD & DRINK
There’s plenty of choice on the food front, with an international buffet and three themed restaurants to pick from. The latter specialise in Asian, African and Cape Verdian cuisine.
Stained glass and spiralling columns characterise the Morabeza bar. The other five bars are equally grand, especially the swim-up one with its triple-domed roof.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
And over at the pool, beginners can give scuba diving* lessons a go.
Entertainment-wise, a nightclub and a karaoke bar are among your options. Children are catered for too, thanks to RiuLand kids' club.
HEALTH & BEAUTY
For something in the way of relaxation, book a massage or a moisturising body wrap at the hotel’s spa*.
At this hotel, you can expect your room to come with air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, satellite TV, mini-fridge, and either a balcony or terrace, giving you that extra space outside. Rooms come as either double or twins, but for a little extra, you can go for one of the more spacious suites, which include a lounge and an extra bed.
