ClubHotel Riu Negri Reopens in Jamaica
RIU Hotels & Resorts presents the new ClubHotel Riu Negril which just reopened its doors after an extensive remodeling project in which the chain invested $20 million. The renovated hotel now has a more current and contemporary style and offers its guests new restaurants, bars and areas for children to enjoy. The hotel is one of RIU’s most popular in Jamaica thanks to its charming Caribbean design and its excellent location in Bloody Bay overlooking an idyllic white sand beach with crystal clear waters.
The hotel’s 420 rooms have been remodeled and now offer a more attractive and contemporary design, although their wooden furniture which provides character and warmth has been preserved. The bathrooms, in which the bathtubs were replaced with showers, were also remodeled.
All of the hotel’s common areas, including the lobby and the reception, as well as the bars, restaurants, pools and gardens were remodeled. All of the bars and restaurants are newly decorated and designed, making them more functional, as well as more attractive.
The hotel’s gastronomical offer consists of five restaurants, two of which stand out in particular, the new Asian restaurant ‘Mandalay’ and the new theme restaurant ‘Kulinarium’. This innovative restaurant combines Caribbean and modern cuisine employing primarily local produce. These new options join the hotel’s main restaurant which offers a buffet of international foods with various theme nights each week; the steakhouse ‘Seagull’; the Italian restaurant, ‘Luigi’ and the popular grill ‘The Local Jerk Hut’ which offers traditional Jamaican chicken on the beach during the day.
As a result of the remodeling project, the hotel now has a new play area for children, the highlight of which is the pool with water slides. Meanwhile, adults also have an entirely new pool which joins the existing pools, providing guests with greater comfort and enjoyment. In addition, the new ClubHotel Riu Negril has a new Sports Bar open 24 hours a day. It is an ideal spot to enjoy a snack or cocktail while watching sports on its big screens.
The entertainment team is one of the highlights of this hotel as the members always have sports and games under way, both for adults and children. Every night the team offers different shows, as well as live music, in the theater.
RIU currently has five hotels in Jamaica–two in Negril, two in Montego Bay and another in Ocho Rios. All of the hotels have 24 hour all-inclusive service, characteristic of RIU Hotels & Resorts. The new Riu Reggae hotel, which is currently under construction, will expand the chain’s offer when it opens its doors in Montego Bay at the end of 2016.
