The Royal River is a truly luxurious boutique property. The resort opened in July 2020, and is cocooned between the mountains and the ocean. The architecture is elegant yet contemporary and makes use of many natural products found on the island.

There may be only 50 suites and villas, but there is sure to be one which sparks your imagination. These include the 1 and 2-bedroom African-inspired Lagoon Villas as well as the River Suites, which are linked via a connecting waterway, a unique concept that is the first of its kind in the whole of Spain.

Gastronomy is extremely important at Royal River, and it is always delivered with creativity and innovation. There are four spectacular restaurants – from French Bistro to Asian Fusion and Rooftop brasserie to a jaw-dropping breakfast selection you won’t tire of exploring.

Dedicate some time to a visit to The Serenity Spa, where every detail has been thought out to maximise your sensation of wellbeing, relaxation and comfort. Every treatment begins with a relaxing foot bath, warm eye mask and a gentle Chakra Head Massage – to begin your easing of tension.

The Royal River is a place of tranquillity and upmost luxury where service is attentive and discreet.

As of 1st November 2022, guests over the age of 14 years are welcome.

If you are staying in a river Villa, you can swim out of your private plunge pool into the extraordinary river style pool which weaves its way around the grounds.

For cooler months – there is a heated pool surrounded by Balinese sunbeds, and a gorgeous infinity pool on the rooftop, a sensational spot for the sunset.

About the location

On the South Coast of Tenerife, Costa Adeje is an upmarket year round destination. Families will love holidays here, there are two beaches with Blue Flag status, clear calm waters and plenty of watersports are available. The area is also known as a great spot for dolphin and whale watching, and its very easy to join a tour. 

A walk along the main promenade in the early evening is not to be missed - and you will find a large range of local and international cuisine. There are lovely bars for a post-dinner drink, and the opportunity to sit and people watch, or listen to some live music. If shopping features in your stay, there is no shortage of high-end boutiques all around the town. If golfing is a prerequisite, you are in luck, as there is a 27 hole course at Golf Costa Adeje which has hosted many prestigious events.

Please note that this resort will become adults only from May 2022
