There’s a trio of swimming pools, and one has a swim-up bar to shout about. You’ve got the pick of five different restaurants, including two buffet places and three globetrotting à la cartes. And there’s a bar and a nightclub for post-dinner partying. You’ll also find a top-notch spa, and a gym with up-to-the-minute kit for cardio and weight-training.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
Group fitness classes, water basketball and boules give you a reason to get off your sunbed. Or you can get your dabber ready for a game of bingo.
The RiuLand kids’ club’s the perfect place for youngsters to let off steam. Each day brings a different set of games, activities and competitions for them to get their teeth into.

FOOD & DRINK
There’s a belly-busting line-up of restaurants, and it’s crowned with two sprawling buffet places. They both dish out local grub like curries, dahls and net-fresh seafood, alongside international favourites. And one of them has al fresco seating.
The à la carte options don’t fall short, either. You can take your pick between an Asian buffet restaurant, an Italian buffet trattoria and a barbecue place that doles out top-notch cuts of meat, fresh off the grill.
