Presiding over the white sands and turquoise waters of Praia de Salines beach, ClubHotel Riu Karamboa has a grand, decadent feel to it. If you’re looking for a holiday in Cape Verde that’s high on luxury and low on effort, look no further.

The talking point of ClubHotel Riu Karamboa is its expansive outdoor pool – lined with sunloungers, parasols and dotted with palm trees and sunken seating, it’s possible to while away entire days here, swimming and sunbathing. There’s a fantastic range of activites if you’re feeling energetic – volleyball and tennis courts, group fitness sessions, kayaking, pedalos, snorkelling, scuba diving lessons, as well as a fully-equipped gym with Jacuzzi and sauna. Slow the pace and enter a state of deep relaxation by booking a treatment in the Renova Spa – try a massage, a facial or even a body wrap. Children are well-catered for here too, with their own pool, playground and kids' club.

Rooms at Riu Karamboa are elegantly decorated with traditional dark wood and wicker furnishings, and all have satellite TV, en-suite bathrooms and a balcony or terrace as standard. Upgrade to a suite for an even more indulgent experience and enjoy having a private living area.

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to drinking and dining here – the main restaurant serves an international buffet, Barlovento specialises in Cape Verdian cuisine, there’s an Asian restaurant and an African restaurant by the pool. For a pre-dinner cocktail or late-night glass of wine, you’ll find a selection of bars, including Mogambo karaoke bar, where you can sing the night away!
