Spanish hotel and all-inclusive brand RIU have made their long-awaited return to the island of Mauritius, with two new hotels having just opened their doors in June 2024.

In a nutshell: This established brand with more than 70 years’ experience is back in Mauritius, with two new beachfront hotels located next door to each other. There’s something for everyone, with a family-friendly and an adults-only option. These 4-star all-inclusives are comparably affordable to other options on the island, bringing a luxury all-inclusive experience to a wider pool of travelers.

The adults-only Check PricesRIU Palace Mauritius and the family-friendly Check PricesRIU Turquoise Mauritius are adjacent to each other in the foothills of Le Morne Brabant on the island’s south-west coast.

The why

  • Both hotels offer beachfront accommodation and easy access to the sparkling Indian Ocean.
  • High end all-inclusive experience at an affordable price.
  • Option for guests at the RIU Palace Mauritius to upgrade to the Elite Club for exclusive benefits including early check-in, late check-out, exclusive bar access and a welcome gift.
  • Brand new infrastructure. RIU demolished its previous properties and started from scratch, ensuring the most modern and innovative all-inclusive experience.
  • Sustainability is at the heart of these new hotels, with more than 2,500 solar panels installed across the two resorts. They are essentially self-sufficient properties!
  • Multiple swimming pools and dining options at both hotels, presenting choice and value to adults and families at both resorts.

Getting there

Mauritius is a small island nation located around 685 miles (1,100 kilometres) east of Madagascar and has long been a popular all-inclusive travel destination. As a small island, Mauritius’ transport connections are limited. However, there are direct flights to the country’s Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport from many countries in Europe. Flights from North America require a stopover, usually in a European city such as London or Paris – perfect for a short city break before or after your Mauritius all-inclusive vacation!

Facilities and dining

The perks of having two hotels next door to each other and owned by the same brand are that guests can make the most of both! Guests at the adults-only RIU Palace Mauritius can make use of the restaurants at RIU Turquoise Mauritius, including the famous Bangalore Indian a la carte restaurant, a staple of the original hotels here that has been retained. Other options at the RIU Palace include the main buffet restaurant, Riviere, a fun fusion restaurant known as Krystal and an Asian restaurant, Kaori.

Parents dining with children at the RIU Turquoise Mauritius are not able to cross into the RIU Palace Mauritius to dine (the restaurants at RIU Palace are adults-only), but at the RIU Turquoise, guests have plenty of their own options. As well as Bangalore, there is a main buffet restaurant called Gaulette, an a la carte steakhouse and Pepe’s Food Grill, serving mouth-watering grilled meats. Although the RIU Turquoise Mauritius does not offer babysitting for free, they can arrange for babysitting services at a cost for those parents who wish to enjoy the adults-only restaurants or other facilities at the RIU Palace Mauritius. Check with the Concierge for the current cost and to arrange babysitting if you need it.

The two hotels also share some of their facilities, including the theatre, spa, and water sports area. There is a sports bar too, showing all the latest live sports action in a relaxed setting. Both hotels have three individual swimming pools, and the RIU Turquoise Mauritius has a small water-park play area for younger kids.

Accommodation

We’ve already mentioned the Elite Club at the RIU Palace Mauritius. This upgrade offers an array of perks, including the best room locations, early check-in, late check-out, in-room aromatherapy, welcome gift, upgraded in-room liquor dispenser, upgraded minibar and exclusive access for Elite Club members to a separate pool area, snack bar and Elite Club Restaurant.

The hotel has more than 300 rooms with a number of categories to choose from. The junior suite is the most basic, but it still oozes style, with king sized beds, air-conditioning, satellite TV and streaming services, as well as a minibar. All rooms feature a balcony or terrace, and furnishings are neutral and classic, with wooden doors and crisp décor. Guests can upgrade to sea views and swim-up suites, and there is a selection of accessible rooms too.

The 380 rooms at the RIU Turquoise Mauritius include lounge areas to give families space, as well as comfortable beds, minbar and a balcony or terrace. Family rooms feature two bedrooms, and there’s satellite TV to keep any bored youngsters entertained! Both hotels offer complimentary Wi-Fi throughout.

Conclusion

What’s better than one all-inclusive hotel? Two all-inclusive hotels! Guests at the adults-only RIU Palace Mauritius can stray from their own resort to the one next door to make the most of the dining opportunities and facilities including the spa. And both of these hotels promise much, with affordable room rates given the quality of the offering. Brand spanking new and having just opened their doors, now is a great time to be booking your trip to enjoy the sun-kissed shores of Mauritius at these new hotels, before anyone else does!
