The new Riu Dunamar opens its doors in Costa Mujeres

  • This is the first RIU hotel in this new destination on the Mexican Caribbean, located north of Cancún. Its main attraction is its vast, beautiful white-sand beach
  • The new hotel offers a water park, five swimming pools, five restaurants and six bars, all with RIU's renowned 24-hour All-Inclusive service 

RIU Hotels & Resorts has just inaugurated the Hotel Riu Dunamar, the company's first in Costa Mujeres and its eighteenth in Mexico. The 5-star hotel is located on a spectacular white-sand beach with turquoise waters located 30 kilometres north of the hotel zone of Cancún.

The hotel, of new construction, offers modern facilities and fresh-looking décor in predominantly light colours. And it also has RIU's exclusive 24-hour All-Inclusive service to make the Hotel RIU's Riu Dunamar an excellent option for enjoying a relaxing holiday alone, as a couple or with friends or family. The Riu Dunamar offers its guests 740 comfortable, light-filled rooms that have all the best amenities, like free WiFi, air conditioning, minibars stocked with soft drinks, water and beer, and beverage dispensers, among others.

The gastronomic offer is one of the Riu Dunamar's strong points, as it offers gourmet, Asian and Italian options in its “Kulinarium“, “Bamboo“ and “Pompeya“ restaurants. In addition to six different bars, the Riu Dunamar also has the “Las Brasas" steakhouse and its main buffet restaurant, “Isla Mujeres“ where local cuisine, rich in meat and fish and with indigenous influences, has a place alongside a wide variety of international dishes.

The hotel's five outdoor swimming pools, two of them with swim-up bars, and the lovely beach they overlook, are perfect for enjoying the Caribbean weather. Another big attraction is Splash Water World, the water park that expands the hotel's leisure options. The RiuLand kids' club, the daytime and nighttime entertainment programme for adults, the live shows and music, and the “Pacha“ discotheque complete the wide range of options for enjoying every minute of your holiday.

The Hotel Riu Dunamar is also perfectly equipped for guests seeking maximum relaxation, as it has a sauna and hydromassage bath in the Renova Spa. Hotel guests also have the option of scheduling hairdressing, beauty and massage services that send them back to their rooms feeling brand new.

RIU has just celebrated its 20th Anniversary in Mexico. It was in 1997 when the Riu Yucatan was opened in Playa del Carmen, and since then RIU's commitment to the country has only grown, with it now representing its main international destination with 18 hotels for a total of over 9,000 rooms. In addition to the new hotel in Costa Mujeres, RIU has hotels in Mexico located in Playa del Carmen (6), Cancún (4), Riviera Nayarit (3), Los Cabos (2), Mazatlán (1) and Guadalajara (1).
