The discount:

We advertise this offer at up to 11% off. We calculate this discount percentage based on the rates we offer compared to a price check of other online travel providers offering the same product and travel date. An example of our maximum discount is:

On 10/01/2019, leaving from Manchester, two people may book a three-night stay in a Superior room (inclusions as noted above) and will pay £495 per person, per stay, compared to a third party online rate of £558 per person, per stay. Based on this calculation, by booking with Secret Escapes, you will save 11%.

The discounts, price and availability stated above were checked on 06/12/2018.

Due to fluctuations in other travel providers’ prices, the discount advertised will not always be the same discount on the “from” price.

The lead price shown is subject to availability, which will naturally decrease during the course of a sale as the relevant dates are booked.

The offer is 100% non-refundable and date changes are not possible once the booking has been made.

Five-star Riga break in the city's charismatic Old Town with Christmas market dates - includes all travel, airport lounge access, breakfast, plus spa access

Scooping the title of European Capital of Culture a few of years ago has done wonders for romantic Riga, but this art-rich city has been on the culture-lovers' radar for centuries, mostly for the magnificent UNESCO-listed Old Town and Art Nouveau architecture that surrounds the five-star Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga.

Originally built in the 19th century, Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga is situated in the heart of the Latvian capital, just opposite the legendary National Opera House and right by the entrance to the town’s historic centre - meaning all the main tourist attractions are within easy walking distance. Inside the hotel, discover plenty of creature comforts in your luxe room. You can enjoy all-day-dining at the hotel's contemporary restaurant, serving up fine international fare and relax to the max in Kempinski The Spa, featuring a tranquil lounger-lined swimming pool, bio-sauna and state-of-the-art fitness centre. It's no surprise that Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga has snagged a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Explore the biggest metropolis the Baltics has to offer and get lost between the charismatic narrow streets of the Old Town, whilst taking in the city's stunning range of architectural delights. Squeeze down Rozena Street - the narrowest street of the capital - and make sure to explore some of the forward-thinking, experimental restaurants that Riga is becoming renowned for.

Good to know

Visit the city in all its festive splendour, with markets in Doma laukums and Līvu laukums squares, as well as in Esplenāde Park (which has the added attraction of a cute “village” populated by real rabbits). Lovely gifts include hand-knitted shawls, mittens and socks, aromatic candles, artisanal spoons and other woodwork. There are also local delicacies, like grey peas and bacon to try. Riga's Christmas markets run from 1 December 2018 to 6 January 2019. For more information click here.

Our holidays come with airport lounge access at selected airports to make the most of pre-flight perks, from fast-track security, a bar service and complimentary hot and cold food to charging points, newspapers, Wi-Fi access and more.

Accommodation

Blending warming tones, upmarket fabrics and wooden furnishings in a classic-meets-luxury style, comfortable Superior rooms measure 35-39 square metres, a king-size bed and walk-in wardrobe, plus a marble en-suite bathroom with a bathtub.

Opt for an Opera Deluxe room and you'll get more space (a whopping 44-47 square metres) and views of the iconic opera house.

Some Superior and Opera Deluxe rooms come with connecting doors.

Dining

Fresh ingredients and premium-quality service are paired with culinary expertise at the hotel's upmarket restaurant and bars. Amber is a contemporary restaurant offering relaxed all-day dining with an emphasis on local and international cuisine. Not only satisfying your appetite but providing an exciting visual treat, too, Amber's live-cooking stations and large show kitchen allow diners to watch chefs busy at work.

The Grand Bar is the ideal spot for a glass of bubbly before a big night at the opera and you can enjoy afternoon tea in the Lobby Lounge to the backdrop of a marvellously grand staircase and elegant marble decor. Light a cigar, accompanied by a cognac, at the Cigar Lounge, or head to the rooftop for a stylish evening of snacks and locally sourced drinks, with views of the city below.

Spa

After a busy day exploring the city on foot, indulge in pure relaxation and unwind in tranquillity at the hotel's luxurious spa. Located on the ground floor, Kempinski The Spa features an indoor pool surrounded with comfy loungers, a bio-sauna, mud room and a relaxation lounge. Alongside massage and facials, the spa also boasts a nail bar and a state-of-the-art fitness centre.

Please note that spa treatments will incur an additional charge.

Location

Latvia’s stunning capital is set on the Baltic Sea at the mouth of the River Daugava. It's considered a cultural centre and is home to many museums and concert halls. The city is also known for its wooden buildings, Art Nouveau architecture and medieval Old Town. The hotel is situated in the Old Town area, with a direct view of the legendary Latvian National Opera House. Riga's domed cathedral and the city's central market are just a few minutes' walk from the hotel.
