Riu Palace Oasis in Gran Canaria has completed a major series of renovations. After five months of work and 40 million euros in spending, the hotel’s quality of facilities, range of services and attention to design and décor have been upgraded.
One of the most notable changes is the lobby, where the ceiling height has increased from approximately seven feet to approximately 16 feet. Originally, the lobby had mirrored columns, but they have been replaced by white pillars forming a marble passage, leading people who stay straight to reception. Here, an onyx reception desk has been added. At the focal point of this passage, there is a notable art installation: a large skylight.
The new décor also emphasizes natural light together with terraces and outdoor spaces where guests can experience the hotel’s garden. The hotel says it has not altered the already existing palm trees to make the terraces and hotel interior unique.
The hotel also has a new kind of room: the exclusive swim up doubles. More than 40 rooms have their own private pools. The 415 rooms have a style reminiscent of the 1960’s, when the building originally formed. The colors are black, grey and white alongside wood.
Riu Palace Oasis has several restaurants to choose from, including the fusion cooking of the Krystal restaurant, the show kitchen and buffet of the main Promenade restaurant and snacks at the Botánico.
The hotel also refurbished its communal areas, offering four pools. The gym, spa area and car park have also been upgraded.
