Spanish hospitality chain RIU Hotels and Resorts has concluded the purchase of three hotels belonging to the Apavoo group and situated on the Le Morne peninsula, with an investment of 80 million euros (approximately Rs 3.33 billion) needed for their renovation.
Located in the southeast of the island, the new RIU Resort of Mauritius is 60 kilometres away from the country’s capital, Port Louis, and 60 km away from the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam international airport.
The new RIU Resort consists of Riu Le Morne, which has 219 rooms exclusively for adults, Riu Creole with 167 rooms and Riu Coral with 144 rooms.
The three hotels are presently closed for refurbishment to adapt their facilities to RIU’s standards of service.
All these three hotels are 4-star, leading directly onto the beach, and from their opening in February 2015 will offer RIU’s renowned ‘All Inclusive 24 Hours’ service.
The Riu Le Morne will be in a sophisticated setting where the guest of this hotel will be able to enjoy four restaurants and five bars, one of them by the side of the swimming pool with a chill out area.
Both the Riu Creol and the Riu Coral will have three restaurants and five bars and they will be suitable for stays with family or friends because of their complete daily activities programme and the RiuLand children’s entertainment club.
In addition to the water zone, the RIU resort has a complete spa with a wide selection of relaxation and beauty treatments.
There will be live music and shows organised every night in the show venue located at the Riu Creole as well as a discotheque for all the resort’s customers.
Besides, the RIU Resort guest will have the opportunity to practice windsurfing, kayaking, as well as snorkelling and paddle surfing, amongst other activities. Also, Mauritius is considered as one of the best places in the world for kite surfing.
RIU Hotels & Resorts was founded in Mallorca, Spain, in 1953 as a small summer business for the Riu family, and is currently owned by TUI – a German multinational travel and tourism company headquartered in Hannover – and run by the third generation of the Rui family.
The company’s business is focused on the holiday hotel sector and over 60% of its establishments offer an “All Inclusive by RIU” service.
RIU Hotels & Resorts has over 100 hotels in 16 countries, and employs over 25,150 people.
