Closed since last November, Riu Tikida Palmeraie re-opened its doors after completing a hotel-wide renovation. The improvements extend to its 392 guestrooms, communal areas and restaurants and bars.

Riu Tikida Palmeraie’s rooms now feature new floors and decorations, with the design introducing warmer earth and wood tones. Additionally, the renovation removed bathtubs from the guestrooms, replacing them with showers. The hotel’s other changes include more spacious communal areas and updated decorations and layouts for its restaurants and bars.

The hotel operates two restaurants, the Moroccan-focused El Nakheel and the Italian restaurant La Trattoria, as well as three bars. Riu Tikida Palmeraie also features an indoor and an outdoor swimming pool, a RiuArt workshop and a RiuLand Kid’s Club. Just a short drive from Marrakech’s historic center, the hotel provides quick access to a range of local destinations, including Bahia Palace, the Menara Gardens and the Majorelle Gardens.

Riu Tikida Palmeraie is one of five hotels the hotel chain owns in Morocco. Riu expects to renovate its other Marrakech property, Riu Tikida Garden, at some point in the 2019/2020 season. A sixth Moroccan location, Riu Palace Tikida Taghazout, is expected to join Riu Palace Tikida Agadir, Riu Tikida Beach and Riu Tikida Dunas in Agadir this August. The beachfront property will offer more than 500 rooms, Moroccan and Italian restaurants, seven bars, four swimming pools and a wellness center.
