With the purchase of a new hotel on the island of Zanzibar, the TUI hotel brand Riu continues the expansion of the group around the Indian Ocean. In delivering its growth roadmap, TUI Group promotes year-round destinations, which facilitates profitable operation of the resort throughout the year. In the coming winter season, the hotel will be become part of the Adults Only Riu Palace range and will offer all-inclusive by RIU service.
The Riu Palace Zanzibar, a luxury hotel with 102 rooms and suites, is located on the northern tip of the island next to the coast of East Africa. Riu complements its offer in the Indian Ocean, which already includes two hotels in Mauritius and one in Sri Lanka. The hotel already belongs to the exclusive collection 'The Leading Hotels of The World' collection thanks to its location right on Nungwi Beach, one of the most beautiful of the island, to the tasteful decoration and to its excellent service. It has three restaurants, two bars, a spa area, conference rooms, a gym and a tennis court.
Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous region in Tanzania and is particularly popular with travellers who combine a safari through the Serengeti National Park with a stay on the long sandy beaches of the island. One of the highlights is also the historic centre of Zanzibar City, also known as Stone Town, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
