RIU Hotels & Resorts officially opened the Riu Palace Bavaro, a modern and elegant hotel located in the RIU Punta Cana Complex, on Friday, becoming the 34th RIU resort in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The opening of this new hotel coincides with the celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the international presence of the hotel chain, which in November 1991 began operating the hotel Riu Taino outside of Spain. Two decades later, on the same site where this historic hotel was located, the hotel chain opens the Riu Palace Bavaro hotel.
After an investment of more than $80 million, the all-inclusive Riu Palace Bavaro will be the fifth hotel in Punta Cana and the third of the luxurious range Riu Palace, as the hotel chain already has the Riu Palace Macao and Riu Palace Punta Cana in this destination.
This hotel will feature 610 rooms distributed between the main building and villas that will offer wireless internet access in their suites and unior suites. Wi-Fi service is also available in the lobby.
The new hotel presents a vast gastronomic selection of tastes in its main restaurant, four specialty restaurants, a lobby bar with ice cream and pastries as well as a sport bar open 24 hours. The hotel will offer four swimming pools, two of which have integrated Jacuzzi, a children's pool with a mini-club, the famous entertainment programme and a spa with sauna, jacuzzi, gym, casino and a convention center.
