‘New’ Riu Bravo Welcomes Back Guests


The Riu Bravo hotel has re-opened its doors on the Spanish island of Majorca following a complete renovation.

After five months of refurbishment work, the hotel in Playa de Palma is welcoming its first guests with a fresh, modern style as well as updated facilities and services. The new Riu Bravo features a facade similar to that of the Hotel Riu San Francisco’s, which after its renovation last year became a pioneer in the redevelopment of this established destination. Straight lines, a white colour palette, glass and metal are the main features of the exterior, while inside, the brightness and the combination of modern and classic elements are the key factors in its new look.

The Riu Bravo hotel has gone from five to six floors and 345 to 437 rooms. As well as more guest rooms, Riu Bravo has a new restaurant specializing in Spanish cuisine and a new pool. Although it continues to be a four-star hotel, the quality of all its services is greater, especially accessibility and sustainability. The hotel has kept some elements that define its Mediterranean character, including its wooden structures, the terrace and pool restaurant tiles, the typically Majorcan large blown glass lamps, and the wooden columns in the lobby.

Rooms have been fully refurbished and are larger and brighter, thanks to the combination of light colours, like turquoise for bedding and natural colours for the furniture, which has a modern, simple style.

The Riu Bravo will continue to offer its guests all-inclusive service that includes all meals and drinks at its three bars (Lounge Bar, Snack Bar and Aquatic Bar) and three restaurants – the main restaurant with a buffet of international cuisine; the grill restaurant Es Pil.lari, located on the terrace by the pool; and the new Spanish restaurant Olé, available for evening meals by reservation.
