Hotel RIU Nautilus in Andalusia, Spain reopened

RIU Hotels & Resorts completed the $6.5-million renovation of the Hotel Riu Nautilus in Andalusia, Spain.

The hotel's renovation includes an overhaul of its rooms, bathrooms, communal areas, restaurants, gardens and the swimming pool. The hotel now also showcases a modern style that RIU Hotels & Resorts is introducing to all its new projects. Also, starting this April, the property becomes "Adults Only." It joins the Riu Don Miguel in Gran Canaria and the Riu Palace Macao in Punta Cana in bearing this designation.

The Riu Nautilus, specifically situated in Torremolinos (Andalusia, Spain), has free wireless Internet access in the lobby and offers 293 rooms. RIU's new style in décor is predominantly white with touches of color in purple shades, supported by furniture with straight, simple lines. The rooms also have flat-screen TVs with access to international channels and fully renovated bathrooms.


The hotel's dining options have been extended with the addition of "Olé," a restaurant serving up Andalusian cuisine. The menu presents specialties from southern Spanish cuisine with a modern twist. The Riu Nautilus also offers guests a poolside Snackbar and a lobby bar showcasing a new terrace.

RIU Hotels & Resorts redesigned the communal areas with a new pool to come into line with the latest outdoor trends. For the colder months, an indoor heated pool has been built with a Jacuzzi. The hotel also includes a new gym, and a massage service is available.
