Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort & Spa details

A beachfront setting, a state-of-the-art spa and four à la carte restaurants – the Platinum Paradisus Rio de Oro impresses on every front.

The 5-star, adults-only Paradisus Rio de Oro gets a gold star when it comes to location. The property hugs the white sands of Playa Esmeralda Beach, overlooking turquoise waters and a beautiful coral reef.

At the centre of the palm-dotted grounds are two lagoon-like swimming pools, both of which wind up to a swim-up bar serving cocktails. Neat rows of loungers and thatched pergolas skirt the water’s edge, so you’ll find plenty of relaxation spots. Elsewhere, there’s a spa, which provides treatments like marine body scrubs and massages for two.

As for dining, you’ve got five restaurants to choose from, one of which showcases international buffet spreads. The rest are à la carte, and specialise in everything from Japanese to Creole cuisine. After dinner, head over to the disco bar for karaoke and dancing.
