Riva Bella is among those few resorts where your accommodation could be – literally – on the beach. It’s a spacious airy site with a long spit of land fronting a sandy beach on one side and two large, scenic salt lakes on the other. There’s no pool, but a very modern spa and wellness centre with spa pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room and treatments. A large restaurant and bar with outdoor terrace overlooks the beach and there are activities available.
Riva Bella is a very ‘green friendly’ place – for example, guests are encouraged to recycle their scraps to the donkeys, llamas and pigs found in the onsite nature reserve which also features a fitness trail for walking, running and cycling. Accommodation is varied – ranging from some rather luxurious villas discreetly located amongst the trees with elevated views of the beach, through comfortable chalets to basic furnished tents. There is also a segregated area with plenty of space for those who wish to camp.
