RIU Hotels receives 69 TUI awards

  • A total of 37 hotels of the Mallorcan hotel chain have been honoured in the various categories of these awards granted by the German tour operator

TUI Germany has recognised the outstanding work of RIU hotels by giving the Mallorcan chain 69 TUI awards. The German tour operator has given awards in various categories to a total of 37 RIU hotels across the four continents on which it operates. The awards received by the hotel chain are as follows:

TUI Environmental Champion
Since its creation in 1997, the primary mission of the TUI Environmental Champion (TUI Umwelt Champion) prize is to recognise the hotels that best meet technical and organisational requirements related to sustainable and responsible hotel management, for example in measures to conserve energy and water. Last year RIU Hotels was awarded 16 prizes in this category, and in 2017 23 RIU hotels received the Environmental Champion prize.

TUI TOP Quality
This is a prize that TIU has been awarding since 2015 to the hotels that receive the highest ratings from the German tour operator's customers. All the awarded RIU hotels were assessed through a survey TUI conducted of its customers, and they achieved a rating of 8.7 out of 10 at minimum. The TUI TOP Quality seal is a vote of confidence that leads TUI customers to the accommodations the German tour operator considers to be first-class. In this category, RIU has received a total of 31 awards.

TUI Family Champion
This category was introduced this year. The TUI Family Champion award is reserved for the best family hotels, and is also selected by TUI's customers. With this distinction, the awarded RIU hotels stand out for being ideal for families, thanks to the facilities and services they offer their guests. The Mallorcan chain received 11 awards.

TUI Holly
Of all the prizes awarded by the German tour operator, the TUI Holly is the highest recognition a TUI hotel can receive. Since 1994, TUI customers have been rating their best hotels, so it symbolises everything that makes vacations perfect with TUI: a passion for detail, first-class service and an extraordinary gastronomic offer. In this case, there were four RIU hotels awarded this prize for excellence.
