The TUI Group hotel brand RIU has just opened the Riu Palace Boavista, which is its fifth hotel in Cape Verde and its third on the island of Boa Vista. The five-star hotel is located by Praia das Dunas and it offers the exclusive all-inclusive 24-hour service of RIU. The hotel, which has 505 rooms, thereof more than 100 swim-up rooms, opens ten years after the launch of Riu Karamboa, the chain’s first hotel on the island.
RIU arrived in Cape Verde in 2005, when the current Riu Palace Cabo Verde opened on Sal island and just one year later, today’s Riu Funana opened its doors. TUI Group and RIU saw the enormous potential of the destination, due to its long beaches and the happiness and mindset of the local people. RIU’s great commitment to the destination has resulted in a total of five hotels, which together have 3,480 rooms and 2,500 directly-employed members of staff.
