Riu Hotels and Resorts is planning to reopen the Riu Palace Paradise Island on Oct. 28, led by a significant change: the resort will become an adults-only property.
The 350-room all-inclusive in the Bahamas has been “completely renovated,” with a wide array of changes both to the rooms and common areas and the addition of a slate of new culinary options, too.
That includes in-room changes like new walk-in showers and new flooring, along with free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Riu has also announced the planned addition of a new “jerk” grill station, a new 24-hour lounge; a patisserie and ice cream parlor called “Capuchino” and an Indian restaurant called “Chutney.”
The company has also added a new gym, a new theater and a new pool with a swim-up bar called “Soca.”
The revamped lobby has also added a “360-degree” front desk, with guests receiving a glass of champagne upon arrival.
That’s all in addition to the existing offerings at the hotel, which include two other swimming pools, a Renova Spa and a private stretch of beach on the island’s famous Cabbage Beach, one of our favorite stretches of sand in the Caribbean.
