Fast-growing Riu Hotels has launched construction on another major new all-inclusive resort project.
Riu has officially begun work on the new Riu Palace Costa Mujeres, which is located right next to the recently-debuted Hotel Riu Dunamar on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, which opened its doors in December 2017.
The new Riu Palace Costa Mujeres will have 670 rooms on a beachfront location in Costa Mujeres, slated to debut by the end of the year.
Costa Mujeres is located on a peninsula on the mainland across from Isla Mujeres.
Culinary offerings will include everything from Japanese and Italian to Mexican and even a show-cooking eatery.
The property will also have six bars, including the brand’s new “Capuchino”coffee shop with pastries and a Jamaican-style barbecue station.
And then there are the pools, all six of them, along with a full-service spa and a gym.
Guests at the Riu Palace will have access to the Splash Water Park at the Riu Dunamar, which is set between the two properties.
