RIU expands with two new hotels in Asia

With the opening of the Riu Atoll and the Riu Palace Maldivas, RIU opens hotels in the archipelago of the Maldives for the first time. The 4-star Riu Atoll and the 5-star Riu Palace Maldivas are located on Dhaalu Atoll.

Surrounded by water

The two all-inclusive resorts are located on two separate islands, but are linked by an 800-metre walkway over the water and have overwater suites on the Indian Ocean.The location on two islands offers guests long beaches where they can enjoy their holidays, as well as water activities in which they can discover the stunning underwater world around the Maldives. While the Riu Atoll on the private island of Maafushi has 264 rooms, the Riu Palace Maldivas has 176 rooms. Guests of this hotel can visit the premises of the neighboring Riu Atoll and the on-site restaurants.

”To open two hotels at the same time, having overcome an exciting technical and logistical challenge due to their geographic location is, for me, a dream come true on both a personal and a professional level,” says Luis Riu, CEO of the company. Thus, RIU supports TUI Group’s growth path and strengthens the Group's own hotel business in Asia.
