The Tui group has opened the new RIU Playa Park hotel on Mallorca following a €35 million investment.

RIU Playa Park has been part of the RIU portfolio since 1982 but has been knocked down and rebuilt in order to raise its category to four stars.

Tui now only needs to modernise the RIU Concordia to have a completely renovated hotel portfolio on the island. The travel giant plans to begin work on the property at the end of the year, which is scheduled for completion in spring 2020.

Luis Riu, chief executive of RIU Hotels said: “When we considered renovating RIU Playa Park, we decided to make a bigger investment and build a new hotel which means we can go up a category and attract new customers with more of a family profile.”

RIU Playa Park comprises 475 rooms including 17 exclusive rooms with private-use pools.

The property is located a few metres from the beachfront and offers guests a 24-hour all-inclusive service, free wifi, guest parking, a gym, and a stage open until midnight providing entertainment.

Additionally, guests can dine at the main restaurant Mallorca, and themed restaurant Spices, or snack at Pepe’s Food. There are two bars, the Mediterraneo and the swim-up Cala Lava alongside two pools.
