RIU reopens fully-renovated Marrakech hotel

RIU Hotels & Resorts chain has re-opened the Riu Tikida Palmeraie hotel, located just six kilometres from the historic centre of Marrakech, Morocco.

The hotel, which opened in 2009, closed last November for complete renovation, including overhauling the rooms and the communal areas.

Nestled among gardens, Riu Tikida Palmeraie has an all-inclusive service, free Wi-Fi and fun entertainment programmes. 

This renovation has visually opened up the communal areas, creating a more spacious and light-filled lobby. The restaurants and bars have been renovated too, with a fresh and updated style in their decoration and layout.

The culinary offerings will continue to provide the finest dishes in a buffet of international cuisine, with themed nights, to complement the two restaurants, “El Nakheel”, specialising in Moroccan cuisine, and the Italian, “La Trattoria”.

Fully-renovated rooms

The 392 rooms that make up the hotel have also been completely renovated. The bathtubs have been removed and replaced with showers, and the floors and decoration have also been replaced, where earth and wood tones predominate.

The hotel also offers the following amenities:

  • Outdoor pool
  • RiuArt workshop
  • RiuFit programme and gym
  • Children's pool
  • RiuLand Kids Club

Riu Tikida Palmeraie is one of five hotels that RIU has in Morocco. Another three are located in the Agadir region, and Riu Tikida Garden, which is also in Marrakech, is scheduled for renovation in the 2019/2020 season. 

Furthermore, Riu Palace Taghazout is scheduled to open this August, and it will be the company’s first hotel in this Moroccan destination.
