Discover the Hotel

If you’ve always dreamt of seeing the fascinating landscape of the volcanic areas of Boa Vista, Cape Verde, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, the new ClubHotel Riu Karamboa (All Inclusive 24h) complex gives you the opportunity. 

The ClubHotel Karamboa, situated on an endless white sandy beach with crystal clear water, offers the best views of this area full with dunes that touch the shore. The massive fresh water swimming pool as well as the Jacuzzi, sauna and “Renova Spa” wellness centre will make your stay as pleasant as possible. 

In the ClubHotel’s buffet restaurant we have prepared the best cuisine just for you. If you’d like to sample international flavours from different corners of the world, don’t miss the different themed restaurants on offer at the hotel. 

The 24h All Inclusive system keeps you entertained all day long. Adults and children alike can enjoy the organised activities to have fun as a family, couple or with friends. Meanwhile, the RiuLand club ensures the little ones have a ball enjoying the best entertainment programme. 

Considering the region’s desert-like appearance, it’s hard to believe that these shores were once covered in vegetation. However, recurring droughts and a poor agricultural policy have reduced Boa Vista and Cape Verdean to a dry, almost lunar landscape. Nonetheless, it hasn’t stopped the island being full of locations with spectacular beaches such the Playa de las Tortugas (turtle beach), Chaves beach, Santa Monica beach and the cemetery of dolphins. You mustn’t miss the various excursions you can go on in the vicinity of the ClubHotel.  

Boa Vista is undoubtedly a destination for relaxationnot to mention the excellent service you can expect from RIU Hotels.

Enjoy the best offers of Cape Verde and spend some relaxing time at the hotel.
