Discover the Hotel

Located on the Ilha do Sal (Island of Salt) in Cape Verde, the ClubHotel Riu Funana (24h All Inclusive) and the ClubHotel Riu Garopa (24h All Inclusive) form a resort which shares  many facilities and activities. Both are situated on a fine sandy beach with indigo-coloured water, considered one of the best beaches on the Ilha do Sal

If you want to forget all the minor details and just enjoy your holidays, this resort is the place for you, whether you’re travelling as a family, couple or with friends. Thanks to RIU Hotels’ impeccable 24h All Inclusive system, all you’ll need to worry about is relaxing and forgetting your everyday stress. For this, you are offered a whole range of possibilities, including two fresh water swimming pools, a gym, Jacuzzi, sauna, solarium-terrace and the “Renova Spa” wellness centre with a range of different treatments and massages. 

If you’d like to discover the island’s delicacies, allow our chefs to prepare dishes for you using the best flavours of Cape Verde. In the buffet restaurant, you’ll find a bit of everything, whilst the various themed restaurants serve up international menus full of colours and tastes to satisfy every palate. 

There’s no better way to have fun than by taking part in the entertainment programme of the RIU Hotels’ All Inclusive system. During your stay, don’t miss out on the wide range of activities organised for you, your family, couple or friends. With table tennis, volleyball, water gym, rifle shooting, a sports centre, kayaking, snorkelling and bodyboarding, as well as a wide variety of water activities near the resort, you’ll have everything you could need for fun-filled holidays. At night, you can come to the famous “Pacha” club and dance all night long or simply enjoy the fresh air of the Atlantic Ocean from one of the terraces at the bars. For the little ones we have nothing but the best, thanks to the Riu Land program which offers a world of activities and leisure pursuits with our entertainers. 

The excellent fish caught by local seamen every day demonstrates the close relationship this island still has with the ocean. Here you won’t find big crowds, just calm towns and a few hotels, making Ilha do Sal the perfect place for those looking for peace and quiet. If you explore the island’s inland areas you’ll find more than just a desert, with a range of excursions that will leave you with fond memories such as Pedra da Lume, a dormant volcano, or Buracona with perfect natural pools for swimming in. The ClubHotel is just 1.5km away from Santa Maria which is considered by many to be the largest and most popular region in the Islands of the Cape Verde where you can visit the local market, swim on the beautiful beach and  go shopping in a range of stores.  

At the ClubHotel Funana everything is within easy reach to guarantee revitalizing holidays
