Since 1953, Riu Hotels & Resorts has provided all-inclusive vacations in popular destinations around the world. The European group added to its Mexico inventory in December by opening Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas, a 642-room all-inclusive beachfront resort.

Located on Medano Beach just three miles from the town of Cabo San Lucas, this new resort features two swimming pools, six restaurants, four bars, tennis courts, a fitness center and other amenities. It is the second Riu property on Mexico’s west coast.

“Because we offer affordable, first-class vacations in Mexico’s most desirable locations, our resorts in Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Puerto Vallarta have all enjoyed great success,” said Miguel Violan, Communications Director of Riu Hotels & Resorts, “Cabo San Lucas is a wonderful destination, and we are thrilled to offer our guests a stunning all-inclusive luxury resort in this beautiful area of Mexico.”

The five-story, colonial-style property boasts 32,000 square meters of gardens with native plants, flowers, trees and shrubs. All rooms feature terraces opening to gardens and ocean views. Room amenities include air-conditioning, satellite and local TV, direct dial phone, mini-bar and liquor dispenser, in-room safe and hairdryer. Its inventory features 18 suites, several equipped with a Jacuzzi.

Located at the southernmost tip of the Baja peninsula, Cabo San Lucas has grown from a sleepy fishing village to a vibrant destination known for its sport fishing, scuba diving, golf courses and romantic beaches. With an average year-round temperature of 78 degrees, Cabo appeals to travelers with its Sea of Cortez diversions and Mexican culture.

A family-owned business, Riu Hotels & Resorts operates more than 110 hotels worldwide, with 23 hotels in the Americas region including Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Florida, Jamaica and Mexico. www.riu.com.
