Riu Palace Macao

Riu Palace Macao Photo

Riu Palace Macao
The crown jewel of the Riu Resorts in Punta Cana embraces an oasis of hundreds of palm trees, which soar above a silky white beach. This regal hotel parallels the beach, horizontally flowing with the Caribbean, with triangular peaked roof tops, rising towards the sun. It appears as though the arms of the buildings wrap around tropical gardens with statues of mermaids, and fountains in the pool.

The Palace is an established, hotel of distinction. It is elegant yet non-pretentious. It does not betray the natural beauty of the location with overpowering decadence. In fact, it blends with harmonious intention. A unique and wonderful feature is The Caribe Grill restaurant, nestled in coconut palms on the beach, which is like stepping into Robinson Crusoe's world. Wooden slats, intertwined palm fronds, thatched roof and draped curtains of screening to replace walls, offer a dream-like fantasy. The aromas of grilled sea food , and the view of turquoise sea from every table, make this a very special dining pleasure.

There is of course, the sophisticated atmosphere in the a la carte restaurants - a Steakhouse and another with Mediterranean cuisine. The main restaurant El Patio with spectacular buffets and theme dinners and show.
A Gala night held every Thursday.. La Boheme Lounge Bar is relaxing for an after dinner drink, before trying your luck at the Casino with slot machines and gaming tables or enjoying a show at the Copacabana theater. The Cubano Piano Bar stays open late for the night owl and also offers 24 hours snacks and drinks.
