You will be able to enjoy the sounds and the serenity that this destination can offer you as well as the day activities that the hotel has prepared for adults.

If diving to the depths of the sea is something which has always fascinated you, why not take a class with the diving school, which is not affiliated with the hotel, and discover what’s hidden at the bottom of the ocean. You might even uncover lost treasure.

The Maldives by night in RIU

Before going for dinner, we recommend that you take a moment to contemplate the skyline and experience the beautiful sunset. What better way to end the day? Not everyone gets to say that they have seen the sun go down over the Maldives.

One of the great privileges of staying at the RIU hotels in the Maldives are its sunsets

We have a surprise in store for you once the day has drawn to an end. Surely you must have seen a beach party on the television and thought about going one day.

    I have stayed at Riu in Aruba as well as Riu las americas in Cancun Mexico. You is definitely my choice hotel for my travels, hands down from the wide selection of restaurants and cuisine, the sheer elegance of the whole resort the swim up bars and water activites to the mini bars in the rooms, to the great shows they provide. Riu is the best. Oh and the staff!!! One of my waiters actually went across the street to a store and brought drinks I wanted just so I had them for dining every night…. where will you find that. And they remember you by name. RIU IS THE BEST EVER!!!
