RIU Hotels opens 19th Hotel in Mexico

With Riu Palace Costa Mujeres TUI group hotel brand presents a new structural design

TUI Group hotel brand Riu has now opened Riu Palace Costa Mujeres, introducing with it a new architectural concept. The innovative layout of its bars and restaurants allows guests to enjoy spectacular views of the sea. It is the second Hotel in Costa Mujeres, following the opening of Riu Dunamar which was opened in December 2017 on Mexico’s Caribbean coast. In total Riu operates nineteen hotels in Mexico. 

“With this new hotel, we wanted to fulfil a wish expressed by some of our most loyal customers: to have clear views of the Caribbean while they enjoy food and cocktails. To do this, the building has been designed in an innovative way, creating terraces, dining rooms and cosy corners on the first floor to improve our guests’ experience.” says Luis Riu, CEO RIU Hotels & Resorts. All this, it was important to allow innovation to bring improvements to the daily work of every hotel employee.

The new Riu Palace Costa Mujeres, part of the Riu Palace line, is located by the beach of Bahía de Mujeres, a spectacular stretch of white sand and crystalline waters around 30 km north of Cancún’s hotel district. Its strategic yet little-known location also lets guests explore some of the region’s most iconic places, such as the Isla Mujeres turtle conservation centre, the pre-Mayan ruins of El Meco and the archaeological remains found at El Rey.

RIU Hotels’ great commitment to Mexico dates back to 1997, the year that Riu Yucatan opened in Playa del Carmen. Since then, new hotels have opened year after year. With this new launch, the hotel chain now offers nearly 11,000 rooms which are spread over various destinations in Mexico. 2018 will end with the opening of Riu Palace Baja California in Los Cabos, scheduled for December this year. Thereby the number of Riu hotels will rise to twenty hotels in Mexico.

With its hotels TUI SENSATORI Resort Azul Mexico, TUI SENSIMAR Seaside Suite and both Blue Diamond Hotels Hideaway at Royalton Rivierea Cancun, TUI is also represented in Mexico.
