Hotel Nova Riviera

Dear guests,

New Riviera Hotel is located just 60 metres from the city center and its first resort hotel, built in 1961.  It is believed that more than half a million tourists have stayed at this hotel in the last fifty years.

Ivo Andrich,  Pavle Vuijsic, Bata Zivoinovic, Petre Prlicko, Lazar Licenoski etc. are amongst the  great number of famous artists, writers, musicians and politicians from home and abroad have stayed here and enjoyed the music, food and drinks.

Now, the hotel has a new look, new owners, a new name “New Riviera” but it has kept its old traditions, customs and habits.

The city bohemians are still here, drinking morning coffee, having breakfast and enjoying traditional stew (a speciality of our restaurant).

Your soul will be fulfilled by the beautiful old city music performed by local Ohrid musicians and bands.  Come and stay with us at the New Riviera hotel and enjoy the gorgeous nature, crystal clear lake and relaxed atmosphere of Ohrid.


The restaurant has maximum capacity of 240 guests but it can also be divided in different ways to suit the needs of our guests and events.

Our highly talented chefs will satisfy your food requests with beautifully arranged plates.  You will find local traditional food as well as international meals and specialities on our hotel menu.

One of the most rare specialities is the Ohrid cake which is served with a scoop of ice cream and a cup of coffee.

Our beautifully arranged summer terrace overlooking the lake and riviera is truly fascinating.  During the summer this is often packed full but there is always room for our hotel guests. Our terrace with its own bar can accommodate up to 200 guests. We offer a choice of premium high quality domestic wines.
