Cape Verde is still very much under the radar as a destination, so if it’s true escapism you’re looking for, a stay at Hotel Riu Touareg is just the thing. With a wealth of restaurants and bars onsite, 5 swimming pools and sumptuous spa facilities, Hotel Riu Touareg has everything you could need for a luxurious retreat.

Rooms are beautifully decorated, with air-conditioning, television and a balcony or terrace. The hotel has a section that’s reserved for adults only, which includes a gourmet restaurant (you’ll need to book in advance), making it perfect for couples or groups of friends seeking a grown-up getaway. Treat yourself to an adults only junior suite – along with all the standard room facilities, there’s a whirpool bath just waiting for you to take a dip.

The dining scene at Hotel Riu Touareg is second to none – you don’t even have to step outside the hotel to be spoilt for choice. There’s a buffet restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Berber Poolside restaurant which serves African cuisine, an Asian restaurant, a new Italian restaurant, and a Cape Verdean-themed restaurant. There’s also a number of bars, including a swim-up bar, and the stunning Atlas bar in the lobby.

The beaches on Boa Vista are the jewels in Cape Verde’s crown – Hotel Riu Touareg is located on Praia de Lacacao, where the sands are white and the sea is lively. Just a 20-minute drive away is Santa Monica beach, named after its Californian equivalent – the locals reckon they’re identical. For sheltered, calm waters, a trip to Santa Monica beach is a must.
