We are continuing with out hotel renovation programme in a number of our destinations and, after several months work, we are reopening the Riu Palace Punta Cana! While maintaining the core concept of a European palace with towers and domes, the hotel now offers more swimming pools, completely renovated bedrooms and new culinary options. All of this is due to a major refurbishment that has enabled us to round off our hotel offer in Punta Cana where, over the last few years, we have built or renovated our six hotel properties as well as launching two water parks.

Following the refurbishment, the Riu Palace Punta Cana has a capacity of 676 bedrooms, whose new style now combines simple and modern decor in light tones with the characteristic wooden colonial furniture. The bathrooms have also been renewed, with the baths having been replaced by large walk-in showers.

The landscaped gardens of the del Riu Palace Punta Cana have gone from having one organic swimming pool and another for children to having three large rectangular pools and another with water slides to cater for the younger members of the family. They can also now enjoy the fun atmosphere of Club RiuLand, located near the children’s pool. Also in this exterior area is an open-air dance floor and stage, where our entertainment staff organise the very best shows and activities for your enjoyment.

It is in the main building where one of the most impressive results of the refurbishment can be appreciated, as it now has a much more open lobby flooded with natural light, decorated in light colours such as white and gold. Teamed with this new decor are elegant and impressive features that will stun you upon your arrival and leave you with unforgettable memories on your departure.

In terms of bars, one notable addition is the incorporation of the new ice-cream and patisserie outlet ‘Capuchino’, a product exclusive to the Riu Palace hotel range that will delight our guests and complement the other four bars of the hotel: the 24-hour ‘Sports Bar’, the ‘Los Rosarios’ lounge, the pool bar featuring the ‘Saona’ swim-up bar and the ‘Daiquiri’ lobby bar. To satisfy the discerning palates of our guests we have placed great emphasis on the hotel’s culinary offering with a new Spanish themed restaurant, ‘La Bodega’ along with the totally redesigned main buffet dining room ‘La Isabela’, the fusion restaurant ‘Krystal’, along with ‘Yokohama’ for Japanese food, ‘Luigi’ for Italian specialities and ‘La Altagracia’ steakhouse.

The Riu Palace Punta Cana now offers every comfort you could possible wish for, including the new sauna and spa located within the main building. Keep fit fanatics will love the new fully equipped hotel gym, while those seeking unique experiences are invited to try Splash Water World at our new resort in Punta Cana.

The new facilities offered by the Riu Palace Punta Cana following its refurbishment will ensure that you enjoy the unique destination of Punta Cana to the full. Don’t think twice about it; book your stay with us right now. Punta Cana, the authentic jewel of the Dominican Republic is waiting to welcome you. Come and visit!
