A new all-inclusive paradise is coming to Jamaica and will be exclusively available through Sunwing Vacations in Canada.

Starting from early May, travel advisors can introduce their clients to the new Riu Palace Aquarelle.

Set to open May 4, 2024, the 753-room, family-friendly property sits on a prime beachfront location, has an exclusive water park on site, along with international dining options.

It marks the introduction of RIU’s seventh property in Jamaica and its first in the Falmouth, Trelawny area, located about 35 minutes from Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay.

“For over a decade, RIU Hotels & Resorts has been a trusted partner of Sunwing Vacations, providing exceptional vacation experiences to our customers in Canada, and we’re thrilled to support the launch of their newest hotel in Jamaica opening this May,” said Samantha Taylor, chief marketing and digital officer of Sunwing Vacations Group.

“This beachfront oasis is perfectly suited to our customers, from young couples jet-setting to paradise to families with young children looking to enjoy a mix of kid-friendly excitement and relaxation, and we look forward to offering our customers more vacation options with one of the top-rated resort brands in the Caribbean.”

The resort promises bright and modern rooms, complemented by natural furnishings, plus a range of accommodations for families, friends and groups of all sizes.

Vacationers can take their pick of suites offering a balcony or terrace, living spaces and modern amenities, some featuring ocean views and swim-up access, plus two-bedroom family rooms and connecting suites for those travelling together.

There’s five pools, including a kids pool with water slides, the on-site Splash Water World water park and non-motorized water sport activities, including stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkelling and more.

The resort’s beachfront is lined with sun loungers, and for wellness travellers, there’s a fitness centre and RiuFit group activities, the steam bath and Renova Spa.

Culinary specialties include traditional Jamaican barbecue at the Jerk Station, international flavours at the buffet with live cooking stations, and fusion, Italian, Japanese and steakhouse cuisine at the à la carte restaurants.

Guests will also find multiple bars throughout the property, including poolside and swim-up bars.

RIU Hotels & Resorts recently formed an alliance with AENOR as the first hotel chain to be certified with the new “Zero Food Waste” badge.
