Riu Madeira reopens following transformation

by | 28 May 2022 | Hotel Openings, Projects

RIU Hotels & Resorts has reopened its Madeira hotel following a complete refurbishment of the property.

The group’s only Portugal property, this newly transformed hotel places guests on the seafront at Praia dos Reis Magos in Caniço de Baixo.

A fresh new look

Now showcasing a new look as well as the introduction of 24-hour all-inclusive service, the four-star Riu Madeira provides a fresh experience for both new and returning travellers.

The hotel is now hosting guests in 327 completely renovated rooms set apart by their modern design and clean lines designed in line with the hotel chain’s latest refurbishment projects and adaptation of the accommodation to suit travellers’ needs.

An elegant feel is instilled throughout with design features such as the property’s characteristic columns and ample use of white and natural light that brings freshness to each area.

Adding to the adaptation of these interiors, the hotel’s views have been improved through the use of glass balustrades on balconies and extending windows in the communal areas.

New hotel experiences

The hotel’s lobby bar has taken on a more minimalist look with a new 24-hour self-service area for snacks and drinks.

Expanding its dining options, the hotel is also home to two new restaurants: the Kulinarium highlighting local produce and the poolside grill Pepe’s Food. A buffet continues to be offered at the main restaurant, which has also been given a new look and feel.

Additional changes across the property then include an extended solarium, which complements the outdoor area’s pools for adults and children and indoor heated pool, which also has a new design.
