RIU Signs Riu Palace Zanzibar

RIU Hotels & Resorts added Zanzibar to its catalogue of exotic destinations with the signing of Riu Palace Zanzibar.

Featuring 102 rooms and suites, the property is situated on Nungwi Beach on the northern tip of Unguja, the main island of the archipelago of Zanzibar. The location is less than an hour from the airport and the capital, Zanzibar City.

RIU, on April 18, formalised the purchase of the property from Emerald hotel chain, which operated it as Hideaway of Nungwi Resort & Spa.

Belonging to the exclusive The Leading Hotels of the World collection, the address has three restaurants—the main one with a buffet serving international cuisine, an Asian restaurant, and a grill—and two bars. Facilities also include a full-service spa, children's club, conference rooms, and gym and tennis court.

RIU will maintain the hotel’s characteristics until the 2018 – 2019 winter season when it expects to introduce its all-inclusive by RIU programme and adapt its offer to the line of Riu Palace adults-only hotels.

Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous zone of Tanzania popular with travellers wanting to combine safaris in the Serengeti National Park with visits to the island’s popular beaches.
