The RIU chain will open ClubHotel Riu Ocho Ríos, its third resort in Jamaica and the chain's largest, with a total of 856 rooms and its all-inclusive formula, on October 28, 2005.
The resort is a small, authentic holiday city with 90,000 sq m of gardens and a wide array of services, located on the seafront next to the zone’s best beach, 4 km from the city of Ocho Rios in Jamaica and 105 km from Montego Bay International Airport.
The five-star establishment will boast swimming pools, sports installations, a gymnasium, a wellness centre and all kinds of areas for fun and entertainment.
The broad range of entertainment and activities offered is the defining characteristic of RIU’s ClubHotel product, which combines the comfort of a traditional hotel with the fun and entertainment of a club.
The establishment’s all-inclusive gourmet culinary offer is also very extensive: international cuisine, Caribbean cuisine, Jamaican dishes and theme restaurants, such as the à la carte “Sir Richard” restaurant, a wide selection of oriental dishes in the “Mandalay” restaurant, a grill/steakhouse and the “Piccola Italia” restaurant.
Guests staying in special deluxe suites with sea views (of which the hotel offers 371) will have exclusive access to the “Tushima” Japanese restaurant and enjoy other advantages, such as luxurious palatial furnishings and a hydromassage bathtub in bathrooms. Some suites have their own Jacuzzi.
The “all-inclusive by RIU” formula allows guests to enjoy food and drinks whenever they like, 24 hours a day, as well as liquor dispensers and other drinks in rooms, and free consumption in several of the resort’s bars, such as the “Sport Bar”, “Reggae” and “Rastafari” bars.
The “all-inclusive by RIU” formula also includes free, complete access to all the installations (except individual services at the wellness centre), admission to shows, Pachá Nightclub and entertainment activities - for both children and adults - as well as music concerts in general and the reggae beat in particular.
The resort offers everything imaginable for holidays full of fun in a truly exotic atmosphere.
RIU Hotels & Resorts also operates the Riu Tropical Bay and ClubHotel Riu Negril establishments in Jamaica.
ClubHotel Riu Ocho Ríos is the RIU chain’s 27th establishment in the Caribbean, where it has become one of the region’s most important brands, thanks to its world-class quality and presence in a variety of destinations in the area.
RIU has recently been declared “Best International Chain” in Canada.
