RIU Hotels resumes its activity in Cancún with the reopening of two hotels in Mexico: the Riu Palace Peninsula, which opens today, June 8th, and the Riu Cancun, which reopens on June 19th.
Both hotels, located in Cancún’s Hotel Zone, are the first ones the chain is reopening in the Mexican Caribbean after closing its 99 establishments worldwide (20 of them in Mexico) in March of this year. With these openings, RIU is taking another step towards its goal of gradually resuming its operations all over the world, after having already opened urban hotels in Miami, Berlin and Guadalajara, and having announced the opening of another four vacation establishments in Bulgaria.
The Riu Palace Peninsula is the second hotel that the chain is opening in Mexico, after the reopening on 25 May of the Riu Plaza Guadalajara, in Jalisco, to which the Riu Cancun will soon be added. The chain’s goal is to gradually resume its activity in the multiple destinations in the country where it operates (Cancún, Costa Mujeres, Playa del Carmen, Los Cabos, Riviera Nayarit, Mazatlán and Guadalajara).
The Riu Palace Peninsula and Riu Cancun are ready to start applying the protocols contained in the RIU Post-COVID Manual for hotels, which provides the maximum safety guarantees for both guests and employees. To do so, RIU has established a specific training program to ensure that all employees are ready to apply the 17 protocols created by the chain in collaboration with the consulting firm Preverisk.
The Riu Palace Peninsula is the fourth hotel that RIU is reopening after the crisis caused by COVID-19. The hotels that have opened their doors are: Riu Plaza Guadalajara and Riu Palace Peninsula (Mexico); Riu Plaza Berlin (Germany); Riu Plaza Miami Beach (United States). The reopening, in June, of four hotels in Bulgaria has also been announced.
