Riu Hotels announce dates for their new hotel

Last week the Spanish hotel group Riu Hotel and Resorts announced that they have set May 6th as the day for opening their new hotel on the Cape Verdean island of Boavista.

The Riu Touareg will be the 5th Riu gotel in the country and will be a frontline, 24 hour all inclusive hotel.

In this hotel the group have decided to depart from their usual model and will be separating the resort in three distinct sections - An Adult Section, Families and Children and the Classic section. The group have explained this philosophy like this.

In the area for adults the guests can enjoy certain exclusive services such as having a restaurant and swimming only for adults.

The Family area will have exclusive swimming pools and play areas as well as group activities tailored for families.

Finally the Classic area will offer the services that all of the other Riu Hotels offer.

This is great news for Cape Verde as it indicates, once again, the long term view that many large groups are taking with regards to tourism. While may argue that all inclusive tourism doesn't benefit the country, we at Tecnicil welcome these initiatives. After all, the more tourists that come, the more tourists will want to return. Their first visit may be all inclusive but perhaps their second visit will be self catering in our resort.

Whatever your opinion, we congratulate Riu Hotels and Resorts and wish the Riu Touareg great success for the future.
