Riu Hotels and Resorts is bringing its new “Riu Pool Parties” to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.

The new space being built to house the parties will be opposite the Riu Bambu, and offers free entrance to all guests over 18 years old staying in any of the brand’s five hotels in Punta Cana — Riu Palace Macao, Riu Palace Punta Cana, Riu Palace Bavaro, Riu Bambu and the Riu Naiboa.

In addition to the pool, this new area will feature four bars, including a poolside bar and one with snacks available.

Riu’s dancers and DJs, both local and international, are coming to Punta Cana after successful tenure in Los Cabos and the Riu Tequila, where they hold weekly parties, to bring life to the part with their performances.

Those pool parties were launched in Mexico earlier this year.

Four theme parties per week will be held: the Pink Party, in which everything is bathed in a pink glow to add a touch of magic to the ambience; the Jungle Party, with decor to make guests feel as though they are in the depth of a tropical forest; the White Party, which uses this color as the backdrop for the greatest hits of the 70s, 80s and 90s; and the Neon Party, filled with colored florescent light.
