The words ‘Island Resort’ conjure images of palm trees, sandy white beaches and glittering swimming pools nestled in tropical luxury. The Sheraton Samoa Beach Resort, set in 224 acres of tropical garden, does not disappoint. Providing elegant outdoor shelter for guests enjoying the lagoon-style swimming pool and stunning ocean views meant a call from Sheraton Samoa to Shade7, specialists in premium outdoor cantilever umbrellas. Sheraton Samoa is a satisfied repeat customer of Shade7, and was happily confident that Shade7 would know exactly how best to expand their range of outdoor umbrellas.
With the extremes of island life to contend with, any outdoor umbrella must withstand ocean winds, salt spray, tropical downpours and glorious sunshine, while enhancing the luxurious ambience so prized by guests. The Riviera cantilever umbrella, Shade7’s most popular outdoor cantilever umbrella, was the perfect choice, but Shade7 went one better, installing the new 4m Riviera HD cantilever umbrella at the Sheraton Samoa.
Some of Shade7’s team were fortunate enough to visit the resort to view and record the superb Riviera HD installation. Arranged around the lagoon-style swimming pool, the fourteen 4m Riviera HD cantilever umbrellas make an impressive display. Riviera umbrellas are designed to be intuitively used. The Shade7 team were delighted to see just how much guests enjoyed the fantastic cantilever umbrellas, manoeuvring the shade with ease. The team observed first-hand how perfectly suited to the luxurious tropical environment the Riviera HD cantilever umbrella is.
Designed and engineered by Shade7, the durable marine-grade Riviera was created to be elegant, extremely functional and long-lasting. These stunning outdoor umbrellas bear the mark of luxury while providing highly practical shelter. The new Riviera HD takes durability and strength to the next level, combining the fibreglass technology of the super flexible Venice sun umbrella with the Riviera’s anodised aluminium mast.
The Riviera canopies are unchanged, made of European solution-dyed acrylic canvas, which makes them water resistant and extremely light-fast, with the highest possible UPF rating (80). These canopies are so durable, they have a 5-year warranty in commercial environments, and a 7-year warranty in residential settings. With the cantilever post to the side, there is no obscuring the truly beautiful ocean views, while the versatile tilting canopy with its 360ᵒ rotation around the mast ensures maximum protection from harmful UV rays as the island sun travels across the sky.
While the Sheraton Samoa is the first resort to experience the new Riviera HD since it was launched, the Riviera Cantilever Umbrella is no stranger to luxury tropical resorts, providing elegance and UV protective shade at Fiji’s Matamanoa Island Resort, and Six Senses to name just a couple.
