Top 5 Reasons Riu Vacation Packages in the Caribbean Rock

June 7, 2016 0 Comments

The reasons, of course, are the beyond-dreamy islands where these blessed Riu resorts are located. These beautiful resorts are slices of heaven. Beach Edens. Water-surrounded escape-havens. Take a look, then take your pick. Riu vacation packages do not disappoint.

1. ARUBA. Whether you choose the Palace Aruba or Riu Palace Antillas, either location boasts visions of paradise. At the Riu Palace, you can revel in sparkling beaches, coral-encrusted shipwrecks, Colonial architecture and a casino. At the adults-only Riu Palace Antillas, you’ll be on the sands of Aruba’s famous Palm Beach where you can dive into water sports, the spa, a casino and delectable restaurants. Both places are where your stellar Riu vacation package memories will be made.

2. BAHAMAS. Riu Palace Paradise Island is perched on three miles of beach heaven. You’ll fawn over the gorgeous décor, but this elation will be rivaled and even, surpassed by the view of aquamarine waters from your private balcony, your feast at the steakhouse or your luscious, melt-into-the-sand massage at the Renova Spa. It’s got it all and it’s all for you. Truth is, Riu resort vacation packages are epic.

In Puerta Plata, you can bask in the splendor at the Riu Merengue and Riu Bachata. While some are family friendly and others are more suited for adults, all of these resorts offer every amenity you can imagine. Cuisine that will tickle your taste buds. Beaches and pools galore. Scads of activities. Rockin’ entertainment. A bevy of water sports. And much more. It’s a fact: Riu vacation packages are the best.

5. ST. MARTIN. The lovely Riu Palace St. Martin sits on the 18-acre, crescent-shaped beach of Anse Marcel in French St. Martin. It’s a vibrant yachting destination with French flair and je ne se quoi that will stir your senses, starting with the zero-entry infinity pool, lush gardens and the sublime spa. In a swoon-worthy locale, it’s nestled between hills on three sides and 1,600 square feet of white sand beach on the other, and it’s touted as one of the most picturesque in the Caribbean. To this Riu and all Riu vacation packages, we say oui.
