Can you feel it? The Christmas spirit is beginning to invade homes and streets in many parts of the world, which are already filling with lights. It’s a definitive sign that the most magical time of the year has arrived! Many people take advantage of this season to discover new destinations with their families. This year we want to offer you something different and that’s why we’re inviting you to spend an exotic Christmas with RIU in its destinations in the Indian Ocean!

1.Sri Lanka

The first option we want to suggest is the Riu Sri Lanka. This stunning hotel reopened its doors last week after being closed for over a year and a half. The staff are looking forward to welcoming you and this year, more than ever, they are feeling the festive spirit.

Located right on the beach, in the beautiful coastal town of Ahungalla, surrounded by unrivalled natural scenery, this hotel has everything you need to enjoy an idyllic family holiday thanks to its 24h All Inclusive service and its complete gastronomic and entertainment offer. Did you know that it was the first RIU hotel in Asia? It is very special for us and we are convinced that it will be for you, too, after you spend an incredible Christmas here with your loved ones. Don’t think twice!


“Last year we went to Mauritius for Christmas, it was amazing!” Can you imagine saying this at get-togethers with friends? If you’re travelling as a family, we recommend the Riu Creole hotel where the kids can enjoy their favourite RiuLand club, while for you we have a variety of activities including windsurfing and snorkelling. Sounds good, huh?

Both are located right on the beach!

3.The Maldives

This is one of the most popular destinations when planning a honeymoon, but there are so many more possibilities here! It is the perfect option for unwinding and enjoying time with your loved ones. Of course, we recommend that you stay at either of the two RIU hotels in this dream location: Riu Palace Maldivas or Riu Atoll.

These two hotels are connected by a walkway and have endless activities for the whole family. In this paradise there is no snow, but there is white sand that you can use to make an original ‘snowman’. Your family is sure to get a big surprise when you tell them that this year you’re not having Christmas dinner at your aunt’s house, instead you’re all going to the Maldives!

We’ve only been in this destination for a short time and it has already won us over! Dubai is like a giant amusement park where you can enjoy an infinite number of experiences, and this year is extra special as it is celebrating 50 years of the UAE.

Imagine yourself enjoying the view of the wonderful city skyline from the Riu Dubai hotel, while sipping your favourite cocktail before Christmas dinner, or speeding down the slides in the Splash Water World… Everyone else will be sending their Christmas selfies with a tree in the background but yours will have the Burj Kalifa!
