The recently opened Riu Palace Oasis
The results of last year’s renovation of the Riu Palace Oasis have been truly spectacular with attention paid to every detail in its modern design. Its strong point is glamour. Entering the lobby is like walking into the pages of a design magazine, thanks to the gleaming floor and spectacular combinations of light and dark tones.
This elegance is reflected across all of the facilities and in each of the 415 bedrooms whose decor is finished in wood and warm tones allied with a modern design. Among them are 50 swim-up rooms, meaning that they have a private pool, a little luxury designed to provide a little extra peace, quiet and privacy.
One of the best features of this hotel is that it has direct access to the beach as it is right on the beachfront. You can take advantage of an infinite number of amenities while surrounded by the taste and elegance reflected in every aspect of this spectacular hotel’s decor.
