Introducing RIU's First Adults-Only Resort in the Caribbean

RIU Palace Macao, Punta Cana

After an investment of $14 million, the RIU Palace Macao reopened on August 4 with a new decorative style along with new restaurants and services. As of the beginning of the coming winter season, the Riu Palace Macao will be RIU’s first adults-only all-inclusive hotel in the Caribbean.

This represents a totally new concept for RIU in its Punta Cana complex, where they now have five hotels: the recently opened Riu Palace Bavaro, the elegant Riu Palace Punta Cana, and the redesigned Riu Bambu and Riu Naiboa family hotels.

The Riu Palace Macao maintains its colonial style facade, but its interior design has been modernized in line with the new style that is being implemented by RIU throughout its hotels.

The 364 rooms have been completely renovated, with new furniture, décor, linen and drapes, flat screen televisions, showers instead of baths, and hydromassage baths available in the suites. The rooms are bright and spacious, with predominantly white décor, and featuring daring touches of colours such as fuchsia.

The lobby offers a cafe called Capuchino, a new Italian restaurant, Volare, and the steak house, Pancho. There is also El Patio buffet, the Japanese restaurant, Kabuki and the Krystal fusion restaurant.

The pool and garden areas have been totally remodeled. As the hotel is designed to appeal to a mature age group, the former, "Kids Zone," has been removed to make way for a new pool and swim-up bar, adjacent to the re-designed central swimming pool.

The La Boheme lounge bar has been renovated, as well as the hotel’s indoor theatre situated next to the lobby. Clients can also enjoy the newly added Dreams Casino.

Questions & Answers About Hurricanes & Travel Insurance



Q. How can travel insurance cover my vacation investment in the event of a hurricane or other unforeseen severe weather?
A. In the event of a covered hurricane or other unforeseen severe weather, travel insurance provides coverage under the Trip Cancellation and Interruption benefit. If your trip is cancelled for a covered reason, we will refund the pre-paid, forfeited, non-refundable trip costs trip up to the limit of coverage.

Q. If a hurricane watch or warning is issued that may impact my travel plans, up to what point can I still purchase travel insurance?
A. Insurance must be purchased 24 hours prior to when the hurricane has been named. Once the hurricane has been named, Trip Cancellation and Interruption losses resulting from the hurricane are excluded from the coverage of the policy.

Q. If the resort that I will be staying at next week is damaged in a storm before my scheduled departure, can I cancel my trip and be reimbursed for my non-refundable costs?
A. If the resort is damaged and cannot accommodate you (or provide comparable accommodations), your nonrefundable costs will be reimbursed.

Q. I'm worried that a predicted storm's path will be too near to the location of my upcoming insured vacation; can I cancel for a refund?
A. If the storm directly affects your travel arrangements or accommodations, you are entitled to Trip Cancellation or Trip Interruption benefits. For example: an airport is closed due to the high winds; you are forced to evacuate your hotel/resort; the road you are traveling is impassable due to high water. On the other hand, if you choose to cancel a trip based on what you think might happen — and not because the inclement weather has directly affected your travel arrangements — that would be considered a matter of choice — not a direct loss to your arrangements.

Q. If my airport is closed due to a hurricane or other weather event, and my vacation is delayed, will I be reimbursed?
A. Yes, travel insurance will cover the expenses incurred if your trip is delayed and will cover reasonable, additional accommodations and travel expenses until travel becomes possible.

Sandals Resorts International Chief Executive Officer Adam Stewart commented “Sandals and Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum are two of the most famous and successful brands ever to emerge from this region and I’m delighted that we were able to join forces to offer the best of the Caribbean at our resorts. Whilst Sandals is a global brand, we remain a family business that is passionately committed to our country of Jamaica and the region as a whole and therefore it’s great to see two local brands linking up to offer a true Caribbean experience.”
He continued, “We’re constantly looking to extend the boundaries of what our guests receive during their stay with us and Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum is an iconic Jamaican product and an internationally acclaimed rum brand. I would like to place on record our thanks to Demerara Distillers and their El Dorado brand and wish them all the best for the future.”
Managing Director of J. Wray & Nephew Limited, Paul Henriques, commented “We are delighted to renew our partnership with Sandals and to be able to showcase our award winning range of Jamaican rums to their guests at their resorts across the Caribbean.
“It is very fitting that in our 50th year of independence, two of Jamaica’s most famous and iconic brands are once again partnering to “raise the bar” and provide guests of the Sandals and Beaches properties with an exceptional drinking experience. “
