Riu Hotels & Resorts has expanded the range of amenities of its five-star 'Adults-Only' hotel, the Riu Republica, located on Arena Gorda beach in Punta Cana.
The resort chain has added a water park, 'Splash Water World', which features four water slides, and is now the second kind of park Riu has in Punta Cana. The new property also features four new a la carte restaurants, three swimming pools and 300 new rooms.
The addition of the new water park brings Riu's number of swimming pools at the resort to a total of eight, three of them with swim-up bars and one covering 900 square metres. All the pools are surrounded by sun decks with lounge chairs for guests to enjoy the Caribbean sunshine.
Riu Republica now has 10 restaurants: two buffets for breakfast and dinner; the Italian 'Tarantella'; the Asian 'Kaori'; the steakhouse 'Quisqueya'; two 'Kulinarium' fusion eateries; the Spanish restaurant 'Olé', which serves typical dishes from Spanish culture; a new jerk grill open daily in the pool zone; and the 'Taj Mahal', where guests can enjoy Indian cuisine.
The hotel now offers a total of 1,382 rooms, among them eight suites, 12 two-bedroom family rooms, and six rooms that are fully adapted for people with reduced mobility.
