For nearly 200 years, Riva has symbolized sophistication on the water. In recent times, the yacht builder has expanded into landlubber luxury, through its Riva Lounges, Privées, and Decks. These exclusive venues don’t just celebrate the spirit of the shipyard. They also surround you with the looks and feels of the materials outfitting the famous boats. Riva owners and enthusiasts will soon have additional destinations where they can indulge in the brand experience. Look for a Riva Lounge in Palm Beach, Florida, as well as two more venues in Europe, including Croatia, to open soon.
If you’ve been to the Monaco Yacht Club, you may have seen its Riva Lounge (below), the first one outside of the builder’s headquarters in Sarnico, Italy. It sits on the fourth floor of the yacht club. Features like lacquered wood, polished stainless steel, and white leather echo the golden era for Riva, the 1950s. In addition, this Riva Lounge, as well as ones in places like Milan and Venice (above), show off Riva-exclusive accessories, like Aquarama tables and chairs. Furthermore, the Venice lounge even has an Aquariva Super docked there for guests’ use.
While the new destination grand openings haven’t been revealed, they will take place in Florida and Europe. Riva Lounge in Palm Beach will complement the Ferretti Group showroom on Worth Avenue. The builder pledges it will be true to the Floridian lifestyle and spirit. Meanwhile, another Riva Lounge will be in Croatia, while a Riva Privée (loosely translated, a private place) is coming to Formentera, in the Balearic Islands. The artist’s rendering below depicts the Croatian lounge, at the Ikador Luxury Boutique Hotel & Spa in Opatija.
Of course, all three locations will have items from the Riva Brand Experience accessories collection, like lamps and chairs, available as well.
