RIU Hotels Reopens The Riu Palace Aruba Following A 25-Million Dollar Renovation
MALLORCA, Spain (RIU) -- RIU Hotels & Resorts reopens its emblematic Riu Palace Aruba after investing 25 million dollars in a complete renovation. This Palm Beach resort, which opened its doors for the first time in 2007, now has a luxurious, elegant and modern style combined with new services and facilities, featuring an infinity pool overlooking the crystalline waters of the Caribbean.
All of the interiors of the newly renovated Riu Palace Aruba are decorated in the modern style the RIU Hotels chain is introducing in all its new projects. A concept based on clean, contemporary lines, where fresh, vibrant colours play a leading role. Likewise, its 450 rooms also have a new modern and comfortable image paired with the latest technology, such as flat-screen satellite TV, an electronic safe, and free WiFi.
The restaurants and bars of the Riu Palace Aruba have also undergone a complete transformation. For example, in the Don Nicolás buffet restaurant, which offers international cuisine, lime green takes centre stage; while the walls of the Nautilus restaurant, located next to the pool area, simulate the sea floor with beautiful images of multi-coloured fish.
When it comes to the leisure and entertainment areas, during the day guests can enjoy the recently inaugurated infinity pool and the new sun terrace, where they can relax and enjoy the laid back ambiance. At night, they can listen to live music in the refurbished theatre while having a drink in Barry's lounge or in the new cocktail area of the 24-hour sports bar.
The renovation of the Riu Palace Aruba updates RIU's hotel offering in Aruba along with the luxurious Riu Palace Antillas, the first hotel on the island exclusively reserved for adults 18 and older which offers all-inclusive service 24 hours a day.
The international RIU chain was founded in Mallorca by the Riu family in 1953 as a small holiday firm and is still owned by the family's third generation. The company specialises in holiday resorts and over 70% of its establishments offer its acclaimed All Inclusive by RIU service. With the inauguration of its first city hotel in 2010, RIU is expanding its range of products with its own line of city hotels called Riu Plaza. RIU Hotels & Resorts now has more than 100 hotels in 19 countries which welcome over 4 million guests a year and provide jobs for a total of 27,813 employees. RIU is currently the world's 30th ranked chain, one of the Caribbean's most popular, the largest in Spain in terms of revenue and the third largest in number of rooms. -- www.riu.com.
