RIU Begins Work on Fifth Hotel in Jamaica

riu palace jamaicaRIU Hotels & Resorts has started building its fifth hotel in Jamaica. The Riu Palace Jamaica will be an exclusive hotel with 238 rooms, reserved for over 18s only, which will open its doors in December 2013.

Travel Agent first broke this news in October during a press trip to see the new RIU Palace Bavaro and the newly renovated RIU Palace Macao, both located in the Dominican Republic.

The new hotel is situated next to Riu Montego Bay. The Riu Palace Jamaica will offer a seafront location, a modern design and relaxing atmosphere and more. The interior design will have the stamp of the new decorative style that the Spanish chain is rolling out in all its new projects. Inspired by the "chill-out" atmosphere of the island of Ibiza, the new design and décor opts for bright, open spaces; as well as the combination of warm colors and materials, such as orange and woods, with others that are more modern and colder, such as purple and glass.

The pool area also follows this modern line, with a dominance of white and straight, simple lines, including two fresh water pools, one with a swim-up bar.

Guests of the Riu Palace Jamaica will also be able to enjoy all the facilities of the nearby Riu Montego Bay hotel including its theatre with live shows every night, the sports bar, which is open 24 hours a day, the nightclub and the comprehensive Renova Spa.
