RIU Opens Hotel In Dubai

The Riu Dubai hotel has opened its doors, marking a new milestone in the RIU chain’s history and bringing a new concept to hospitality in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

It is the Spanish chain’s first hotel in the Middle East, and the emirate’s first 4-star all-inclusive, beachfront family hotel and brings the chain’s total number of hotels up to 100 in 20 countries around the world.

The Riu Dubai is a large hotel with 800 rooms, located on the beachfront. Its striking white façade makes an immediate impression and its modern, light-filled spaces and its comprehensive facilities “make it the ideal location for a perfect family holiday'” Riu says.

“Designed as a place to enjoy Dubai’s warm, sunny climate and endless attractions, the hotel offers two children’s pools and three large pools for adults with a broad terrace with direct access to a large beach.

The hotel also offers the new ‘Splash’ water park, with slides and other attractions for adults and children alike.”
