The RIU Hotels and Resorts group has expanded its Caribbean footprint yet again, opening its seventh resort on the island of Jamaica.

The RIU Palace Aquarelle has opened its doors in Falmouth, Trelawny, running along the blue waters of White Bay beach. Just 35 minutes away from Montego Bay, this new five-star resort boasts 753 rooms, offering round the clock all-inclusive service.

When they step through the doorway of their room at the Hotel RIU Palace Aquarelle, guests will find a tastefully decorated, spacious and bright area that is equipped with everything they need to enjoy a comfortable stay. Earthy colours and organic motifs play a starring role, with simple furniture and decoration. But by far the best thing about this new hotel are the breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea from virtually every room to give guests a truly unforgettable experience.

As this hotel is geared towards families or groups of friends, a number of suites have been set up as connecting rooms, and can be linked depending on your booking. There are also family oriented suites with two bedrooms. According to the hotel, in total there are 180 triple rooms and 26 family suites.

Besides the regular and family rooms, there are the Junior Suites on the ground level which have their own swim up pool, and a good view of the ocean. From the booking portal, it seems every option comes with either a full or partial view of the hotel, no matter which one of the nine booking options you choose.

There are six restaurants, covering different dining themes such as Asian, Italian, grilled and jerk food, as well as traditional buffet and gourmet western themes. There are also five bars spread across the property including within the lobby area, next to the pools, and in the lounge.

Besides the four pools located on the greenery between the resort and the beach side, there is also a water park area called the ‘Splash Water World’ dedicated for the kids with twisting and sloped water slides and a dedicated pool area.

If you don’t care for the pool and prefer the real deal, you can take a dip in the ocean as the hotel sits right along the shoreline of White Bay beach.

The resort is also proud of its 795 solar panels spread across the rooftops, reducing traditional power consumption by 5-10% per year. These panels are expected to draw up to 400-kilowatts at its peak, generating up to 470,000 kilowatt hours per year and cutting CO2 emissions by approximately 221,482 kilograms per year.
