TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 25, 2015) - Exclusive tour operator for RIU Hotels & Resorts, Signature Vacations, is delighted to announce the reopening of Riu Palace Aruba. Situated on the white sands of the island's Palm Beach, the elegant resort now has a sleek, contemporary ambience following the extensive $25M renovation project along with several attractive new features.

The overall decorative theme is based on clean lines with accents of vibrant colours and striking designs. Completely transformed, the buffet restaurant, Don Nicolas, now has a palette of neutrals and lime green, while bold murals recreate the seabed within the poolside Nautilus restaurant. The crisp and modern feel also extends to the décor of the 450 guestrooms that have also been refurnished to include the latest technology including flat-screen satellite TVs and electronic safes.

A highlight of the renovation is the addition of a stunning infinity pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea, together with an expansive sun terrace. Other amenities now available to guests include property-wide complimentary Wi-Fi, gym and the Renova Spa along with a refurbished theatre for nightly entertainment. The 24-hour sports bar has also been enhanced with the addition of a new cocktail lounge.

In addition, the resort offers a packed program of daily activities and nightly entertainment, plus complimentary access to the on-site casino. From paddle surfing to snorkelling and kayaking, there's plenty to keep guests entertained on the resort's beachfront together with some excellent options for golfers nearby. Varied sightseeing options on the island include exploring one of the destination's stunning national parks on a jeep safari, discovering Aruba's fascinating colonial heritage at Fort Zoutman or spotting cormorants, herons and fish eagles at Bubali Bird Sanctuary.

Signature Vacations offers vacation packages to Riu Palace Aruba from Montreal and Toronto which include return flights on Sunwing Airlines where travellers can relax and enjoy award-winning Champagne Service on route to their destination, together with a generous checked baggage allowance.
