(Part 1 of 7)

Emerging across Europe, in a few select cities, you can enjoy the flair of iconic Riva Yachts while relaxing on dry land.

Inspired by the legacy of Carlo Riva and the beautiful yachts he created, Riva Lounges and Riva Privées evoke Riva's emblematic 1950s style. Using exquisite details such as sparkling chrome and lacquered mahogany, you are surrounded by the glamour of the world's most iconic yachts. All the furnishings, such as the Aquarama tables and chairs, are permeated with the Riva spirit.

Settle in and feel the essence of Riva. Run your fingertips over the fine woods and materials that Riva has used for nearly two centuries. These are the same components Riva uses to create the yachts that celebrities and stars have long sought and adored.

Currently, Riva Lounges and Riva Privées are located in Monte Carlo, Monaco; Opatija, Croatia; Sarnico, Venice and Milan, Italy; Formentera, Spain; and Paris, France. Each location will be explored in upcoming articles, so watch for Part 2, which will focus on the Riva Lounge in Monte Carlo.
