The Riva Lounge is coming to Sardinia and bringing with it the guiding philosophy of ‘Riva inside, inside Riva’, which extends the iconic Italian brand’s values beyond the yachting sector. The initiative, promoted by Smeralda Holding, brings the design attention to detail and heritage of the Riva brand to famous hotels, restaurants and clubs close to a landing point for yachts.
The Riva Lounge officially opened on June 26 in partnership with Waterfront Costa Smeralda, with all furnishings having the same features typically found on Riva yachts – giving owners a taste of the Riva legend and a first-hand experience of the materials and woods used for almost 180 years of building the world’s most famous boats.
Visitors can bask in a relaxing but sophisticated atmosphere just steps from the yachts moored in Porto Cervo Marina, one of the most glamorous in the Mediterranean. Top chefs and bartenders provide guests with an even more exclusive experience.
In this unique location, the world’s most talented mixologists show off their skills and create spectacular masterpieces of the art of the cocktail, inspired by local excellence and the history of Riva and coordinated by Edoardo Arcesi. After following his passion for mixing drinks by working in top bars in London and Rome, the cosmopolitan bar manager comes to the Costa Smeralda, where he combines outstanding creative flair with impeccable service. Riva Lounge offers an original and sophisticated drinking experience, with a choice of creative cocktails, a broad range of famous labels, and niche selections from Petit Vigneron. A tailor-made sensory experience enhanced by the sophisticated, genuine flavours of cuisine created by the finest chefs on the Costa Smeralda.
The desirable Costa Smeralda returns for the Summer 2021 season, with prestigious international luxury brands and renowned yachts on the water.
