Certificate of Excellence
The Grand Hotel Riviera, historic hotel in Salento, has been returned to its original splendour after a careful and accurate refurbishing, adding to the chain of CDSHotels. The hotel, which is situated along the coast of the Gulf of Gallipoli, offers you a unique stay in the charming and picturesque village of Santa Maria al Bagno. The deep blue of the Ionian Sea, the green of the pine forests and the lush Mediterranean vegetation, the quaint white houses and the nearby beach of fine white sand are the colours, highlighted by the warm sun of Salento which surround the hotel.
