You were waiting for it and now it’s a reality: the Riu Palace Paradise Island, in the Bahamas, has reopened its doors. Last Friday, on 27 October, after three months of intense work, the renovation of this paradisiacal hotel with exclusive RIU 24-hour All-Inclusive service was completed. And now, with the renovation, it has become an Adults-Only hotel where you can spend a dream vacation with your partner or group of friends.

A fresh style, both modern and elegant, characterises the renovated facilities of the Riu Palace Paradise Island. The rooms are no longer carpeted, and all the bathrooms have been redone and now provide showers and bathrobes for our guests.

The décor of the common areas, such as the lobby, has also been adapted to this fresh and elegant style used in the RIU hotels renovated in recent years. And, to let you relax completely, this renovation provides you with two swimming pools to enjoy: the first is 330 m2, and the second is 200 m2 and offers the aquatic bar ‘Soca’. Everything is designed to let you unwind in our facilities, which include an additional terrace-solarium that has been added to the exterior of the hotel.

In terms of gastronomy, at the Riu Palace Paradise Island you’ll find a wide selection of very diverse foods. The new Indian restaurant ‘Chutney’ joins the existing restaurants ‘Bahamas’, ‘Atlantic’, ‘Tengoku’ (Japanese) and ‘Krystal’, with fusion cuisine, all of which have been renovated. In addition to these restaurants, you can also enjoy the ‘Jerk’ barbecue, the ‘Capuchino’ ice cream and pastry shop, and the 24-hour ‘Calypso’ bar located in the nightclub where the different performances and shows are staged.

The change to an Adults-Only hotel means that the Riu Palace Paradise Island now offers more sophisticated amenities. When you arrive, you’ll be welcomed with a glass of champagne and, if you like, you can also enjoy premium beverages, at no extra cost, throughout the hotel. If you like, we also give you the option of requesting a romantic outdoor dinner (with a prior reservation) or ordering a wine from our special wine list.

The comfort you’ll find in our spa and wellness centre is another option for disconnecting and relaxing in the manner you deserve. To make your stay as comfortable as possible, you have our 24-hour room service and concierge service. Our staff will give you their best service with an enormous smile on their faces. This is your holiday, and we want you to enjoy it to the utmost with us.

Enjoying the experience of a recently renovated Riu Palace hotel in a paradise destination like the Bahamas is within your reach. You just have to look for a date, make up your mind and come stay with us. We’re waiting for you at the Riu Palace Paradise Island!

        I recently visited the riu in paradise island and had an amazing stay. I did however, lose a very special necklace while there. I took it off before having a massage at the spa and must’ve forgot to put it back on and I think it it fell on the floor. We had the service on Sunday Feb 3rd- wondering if there’s someone I can contact to see if it was found? Thanks

    The hotel website still showing old photos. When will this be updated.?

  • Linda dobson

    Are ALL the rooms finished or are they still working on them. Visited several times and are returning in a few weeks so wanted to make sure the room we normally get has been renovated.

    I have read quite a few reviews that complain about the lack of efficiency with your restaurants because you do not take reservations. Will this continue even during peak times, such as new years eve?
    Thank You.

    • Riu Hotels

      Hi Chelsey!

      It is true that we eliminated the reservation system in the RIU in the Caribbean to avoid collapsing with reservations and that some guests were left without being able to enjoy them. Therefore, we recommend our guests go sooner so they can enjoy the delights of our Mexican, Italian or Japanese restaurant, among others.

    We are deciding on whether to book at your resort. However, you have a great deal of concerns and comments about your dining. There are many negative complaints about this…..are you changing the policy?

    • Riu Hotels

      Hi Jill!

      We do hope you will understand that it is difficult for us to comment on individual tastes or opinions, when the majority of customers do appear to be satisfied with the overall quality of the food offered. We ever try to offer a great gastronomy offer to our guests 🙂

    How should I book ( or arrange ) a day at the resort for early next month?

    Can I use my class points?

    Does any of the Junior Suites have tubs or jacuzzi in the rooms, or is it all showers. I prefer a tub type.
