After the passage of Hurricane Matthew, which lashed the island of Nassau, The Bahamas as it passed through on October 6, RIU Hotels & Resorts announced that the Hotel Riu Palace Paradise Island is operational.

The Riu Palace Paradise Island suffered some damage during the storm, but fortunately the RIU engineers and local authorities were able to confirm that this was cosmetic damage, and neither the structure nor the basic services were affected.

Repairs and cleaning began immediately, and service in its five restaurants, four bars, swimming pool and day and night entertainment programs are fully operational.
