RIU Hotels & Resorts has now opened Riu Palace Costa Mujeres, introducing with it a new architectural concept. The innovative layout of its bars and restaurants allows guests to enjoy spectacular views of the sea. It is the international hotel chain’s nineteenth hotel in Mexico and its second in Costa Mujeres, following the opening of Riu Dunamar in this new paradise destination in December 2017.
The new Riu Palace Costa Mujeres, part of the Riu Palace line, is located by the beach of Bahía de Mujeres, a spectacular stretch of white sand and crystalline waters around 30 km north of Cancún’s hotel district. Its strategic yet little-known location also lets guests explore some of the region’s most iconic places, such as the Isla Mujeres turtle conservation centre, the pre-Mayan ruins of El Meco and the archaeological remains found at El Rey.
This completes the chain’s range in the destination with a new, luxury hotel category, which offers an all-inclusive service and 24-hour room service. It also provides free WiFi throughout the hotel and top-of-the-range services in each of its 670 rooms which are decorated in light hues, and in the open areas which overlook the sea.
Riu Palace Costa Mujeres offers open and modern communal areas where guests can relax in intimate surroundings, lively entertainment programs and a wide range of cuisine including breakfast buffets and show-cooking stations in its main restaurant, “Spaces”. Magnificent grilled meats are on the menu in the pool restaurant, “Tastes”, as well as Mexican, Japanese, Italian and fusion cuisine in the themed restaurants, “Zarape”, “Japan”, “Roma” and “Krystal”, which turn the hotel guests’ stays into true foodie experiences.
The new hotel has five pools, two of which have swim-up bars, and a reserved area on the beach with lounge chairs and umbrellas. The newly-built hotel also offers varied entertainment programs for adults, sports activities with RiuFit and art with RiuArt, as well as live shows, a gym and a spa. Its location next to Riu Dunamar means guests can enjoy Pacha nightclub, RiuLand kids’ club and Splash Water World, a water park with thrilling slides.
