The ClubHotel Riu Bambu, a popular family retreat in the Punta Cana RIU complex, has reopened completely refurbished.
The all-inclusive resort has completely refurbished facilities as well as new restaurants, pools, a gymnasium, Riu4U entertainment club and rooms.
The ClubHotel Riu Bambu is the chain’s most family-oriented hotel in Punta Cana, where it has six properties that cover its entire product range.
Originally inaugurated in 1999, the hotel was refurbished in 2004 and in 2010 and this year completely overhauled by RIU Hotels. The five-star hotel is located on Arena Gorda Beach, surrounded by a palm grove. All of its rooms feature new furniture and décor, as well as refurbished bathrooms.
Culinary options have also changed after the refit. The hotel has seven restaurants, including the new Spanish restaurant Olé and the gourmet eatery Kulinarium. Clients will continue to have the main restaurant available to them with international Colonial cuisine, as well as the Asian Hibachi, the Italian San Angelo, the Palm Beach steakhouse and the Mexican Mama Juana.
Facilities now include a new gymnasium next to the beach, as well as two new pools, with two new swim-up bars, in addition to the existing three pools. The Riu4U club for adolescent activities is also new. Smaller ones have RiuLand, while adults can choose between day and night activities.
Punta Cana is also home to The Riu Palace Bavaro, Riu Palace Punta Cana, Riu Palace Macao, Riu Naiboa and ClubHotel Riu Bambu, which are located in the RIU complex. Clients also have free access to the Splash Water World water park, while the Riu Republica, the first adults-only hotel in the Riu Classic range, is 2 km away, on the same beach. Riu Republica will see substantial changes at the end of this year with 400 new rooms, four new restaurants, five bars and a new water park.
