The Riu Palace Mauritius and Riu Turqoise on the Le Morne peninsula in Mauritius run on clean energy

Opening on May 31 on tropical Mauritius are the Riu Palace Mauritius and Riu Turquoise, two luxurious additions to the Spanish hotel group’s portfolio. 

They replace two of its former hotels in the same location on the Le Morne peninsula and have been rebuilt with an elevated concept with sustainability at the forefront. 

As such, they are also Riu’s most energy efficient hotels, running on clean energy generated from over 2,400 solar panels.

Both hotels are 24-hour all-inclusive resorts where guests have access to food and drinks at all hours.

Apart from the lush surroundings and stellar service, each establishment promises its own brand of hospitality and guest experience.

The Riu Palace Mauritius, a 4-star superior adults-only hotel and the first Palace brand for Riu in Mauritius, has 310 rooms, 255 of which are junior suites, some with panoramic ocean views. For dining options, guests can try a variety of delicious cuisine at the hotel’s main restaurant and five themed restaurants — comprising an Indian, Asian, fusion, grill and steak restaurant — a patisserie and ice cream parlour, and six lounges and bars.

Amenities are designed to provide ultimate enjoyment with three swimming pools including one with a swim up bar and a private pool for Elite Club guests.

The Riu Turquoise on the other hand is a family-friendly 4-star establishment. With 390 rooms, including 244 with sea views and 10 family rooms, each is thoughtfully designed to accommodate the needs of families.

Hotel facilities include three outdoor pools, one with a swim up bar for those 18 and above, the other, a children’s pool with slides.

Riu Turquoise’s restaurants include the main restaurant and three themed restaurants — one Indian, one grill and a steakhouse. Adults can get a nightcap in one of the four lounges and bars.

Apart from these, guests staying at Riu Palace Mauritius can enjoy all the facilities of Riu Turquoise.

Both hotels offer a variety of activities for guests such as an in-house gym, spa, RiuFit, a daily sports programme, and water activities from stand up paddle surfing to kayaking and snorkelling. There is also a free Kids Club in Riu Turquoise.

Wind down at night with a variety of entertainment from live music and karaoke, to stage shows, game shows and even catch a traditional Mauritius dance.
