RIU Hotels

RIU Hotels and ResortsRIU hotels come in all shapes and sizes, so you’ll see the logo pop up across lots of TUI holidays handpicked holidays. They range from family-friendly ClubHotels to luxe Riu Palace properties.
RIU Hotels & Resorts now has more than 100 hotels in 19 countries which welcome over 4 million guests a year and provide jobs for a total of 28,000 employees. RIU is currently the world’s 30th ranked chain, one of the Caribbean’s most popular and the third largest in Spain.

RIU Hotels & Resorts has opened a new hotel in Bulgaria, the Riu Astoria, a brand new 4-star all-inclusive property that will surprise guests with its modern construction and services. The complex is located in Golden Sands, a destination considered to be the jewel of the Black Sea and one of the pearls of Eastern Europe. It is the only hotel of the chain in Golden Sands and the sixth in Bulgaria, with properties already established in destinations such as Obzor, Pravets and Sunny Beach.

The Riu Astoria opened on the 26th of April and will be operating during the summer season. It enjoys a privileged location within Bulgaria, just 37 km from Varna airport, in the quiet area of the Golden Sands resort and close to its pedestrian areas, shops, bars and restaurants. The Riu Astoria hotel lies directly on the seafront promenade. The 7 km-long beach of fine sand is about 80 m away from the hotel. There is a small beach area in front of the hotel, reserved only for hotel guests, with free of charge sunbeds and parasols at their disposal.

In addition to being right next to the beach and within easy reach of the airport, the hotel is in the ideal spot for guests to explore some of the most iconic of the country’s landmarks such as the city of Varna, the town and the Botanic Garden of Balchik, Cape Kaliakra and the Aladzha Monastery.

You’ll find RIU hotels sprinkled across the globe, from close-to-home Croatia and the Canaries to far-flung favourites like Costa Rica and the Caribbean. They’re in prime spots, too – the Riu Palace Tenerife, for example, has a beach for a doorstep.


The first RIU hotel opened its doors in 1953, so they’ve got personal service down to a fine art. Even though no two are identical, you can expect the same standout treatment at them all. It’s no wonder so many guests come back year after year.


You can look forward to the full A to Z of activities. RiuFit looks after exercise, RiuArt puts on workshops, while children can head to RiuLand and the Riu4U Teen Club. On top of this, there’s the likes of tennis, scuba diving and volleyball.


Great gastronomy is one of the hallmarks of a RIU hotel – whether it’s the buffet restaurants or the around-the-world à la cartes. Take the Riu Palace Aruba, which has a grand total of five restaurants, spanning Italian to Mexican cuisine.


Lots of our RIU hotels are the proud owners of well-stocked gyms and tranquil spas, where you can treat yourself to some R&R. At the Riu Cancun and the Riu Montego Bay, you can sign up for al fresco massages, thanks to pool and beachside cabanas.
