RIU Maldives

RIU opens two new premium hotels in the Maldives

The RIU Hotels & Resorts has opened two new hotels in the Maldives - Riu Atoll and Riu Palace Maldivas, 4- and 5-star hotels respectively.

They are located on Dhaalu Atoll and offer guests suites over the Indian Ocean.

Luis Riu, CEO of the company, explains: “this is a great moment for the chain, because we have been working towards opening a hotel in the Maldives for over seven years. To open two hotels at the same time, having overcome an exciting technical and logistical challenge due to their geographic location is, for me, a dream come true on both a personal and a professional level.”

The process which began in early 2017 has taken more than two years to create these two all-inclusive resorts. The two hotels, on two separate islands, are linked by a 800-metre walkway over the water. The 72 suites over the water of the Riu Palace Maldivas are located on both sides of this walkway.

Riu Atoll is on the private island of Maafushi. This 4-star hotel has 264 rooms, 36 of which are over the water. The hotel has a main restaurant, the 'Dhoni'; an Italian restaurant, 'Sophia' and a steak house, 'Beef Steak House'. It also has a 24-hour Sports Bar, the salon bar 'Bodeberu' and the swim-up bar 'Tequila'. Also, Riu Atoll offers a pool, a children’s play area and the RiuLand kids’ club.

Riu Palace Maldivas is on the neighbouring island Kedhigandu, which is also private. This 5-star resort has 176 rooms. Guests at Riu Palace Maldivas can enjoy the bars and restaurants at Riu Atoll and, in addition, have exclusive access to the main restaurant 'Palm', which has a terrace, the fusion restaurant “Krystal” and the Japanese restaurant 'Yu Hi'.
