Riu Unveils New Adults-only Aruba Resort
Riu Hotels & Resorts plans to open the all-new Riu Palace Antillas on Aruba’s Palm Beach next Winter. The resort, formerly the Westin Aruba, will undergo a $60 million renovation and will become an adults-only all-inclusive resort. Resort facilities will include a buffet restaurant and three specialty restaurants, several bars and lounges, a 24-hour patisserie-café, live entertainment, a nightclub and a casino.
The RIU Palace Antillas is located adjacent to its sister resort, the Riu Palace Aruba. Guests at both resorts will have access to the facilities at each resort. The RIU Palace Antillas is designed especially for adults 18 and over, and perfect for honeymoon, girlfriend getaways, and adults-only group vacations.
The hotel is the ideal place to relax, complete with a free gym, a spa, and a beauty and hair salon inviting you to a wide variety of treatments. It is perfect for those who enjoy the sun, offering free lounge chairs, sun umbrellas and towels, both at the wonderful swimming pool and on Palm Beach itself. Furthermore, a complete entertainment program offers the possibility of trying out many different activities: water sports such as windsurfing, snorkeling and kayaking, and even a diving test in the swimming pool. A golf course, bicycle rental and the possibility of interesting hiking routes are all available in the surrounding area.
The buffet restaurant invites you to enjoy the colorful Caribbean cuisine at lunch and dinner. At the same time, you will find different world flavors in the three thematic restaurants, and you can cool down in the patisserie/ice cream shop, open 24 hours a day. With a reservation beforehand, dinners on the beach are a romantic alternative. At nighttime, you can also enjoy RIU’s program of shows, dance at the club or try your luck with the casino games.
