RIU Acquires Second Hotel in Tanzania to Be Marketed Under Riu Palace Brand

|2019-07-08T16:08:04-04:00July 3rd, 2019|

RIU Hotels & Resorts has acquired its second hotel in Tanzania, to accompany the other one the chain already has in the country. This new property will be marketed as part of the sophisticated Riu Palace range, as Riu Palace Zanzibar already is.

The new hotel is located in the Nungwi Beach area and it has all the facilities needed to enjoy this paradise destination. It sits on a spectacular white-sand beach with crystalline waters, at the far north of Unguja, the main island of the Zanzibar archipelago, at a little over an hour by car from the airport and the capital city.

Its 149 rooms are five-star rated and they offer maximum luxury under the Riu Palace brand. The hotel has 24-hour all-inclusive service, free WiFi and a spectacular restaurant over the sea where guests can enjoy the local cuisine.

As well as this new hotel, RIU has also acquired five hectares of land where it plans to build a third hotel on the island. The total investment of this purchase amounts to 56 million dollars. With this new project, RIU reaffirms its commitment to the African continent as a new tourist destination with which it expands its range of sun and beach hotels, following its announcement in June of the purchase of a site in Senegal. With this new establishment, the chain now has possession of a total of seven hotels (five in Cape Verde and two in Tanzania), in addition to the five in Morocco.
