It was 1952 when Carmelo Previte, the uncle of the current owner, conceived the idea of building the Rome’s seaside Hotel Bellavista. He wanted to introduce on the Roman waterside a concept of hospitality that could be at the same time innovative and peculiar to the traditions of the Italian hotellerie. In 1967 the plan was expanded to the Neorealist adjacent detached house, created by the engineer Del Monte in 1934, becoming the Hotel La Riva. In the 90’s through several transformations and improvements made by the current management, the Hotel La Riva in front of the seaside of Rome has today become the dependance of Bellavista and the hotels toghether are one of the most comfortable hotels on the Ostia seafront, the only quarter of Rome on the sea. Today, thanks to the passion of its owners and through a plan of integrated communication, the two structures have been reunited into the one structure that reflects the aim of reaching on a daily basis high standards of quality in providing the guests with the warmth of a house combined with continuous innovation.
