Private island getaways have never looked easier than at the Riu Atoll. It’s fresh out of the wrapping for summer 2019, and the all-new facilities include a whopper of a pool, a spa and three restaurants. Evenings might be cocktails on a cosy terrace or a knees-up into the early hours. The hotel-run kids’ club takes care of nippers so parents can put their feet up.

An evening entertainment programme’s planned, too. So you’ll have the best of both worlds to enjoy, be it an intimate drink or a belter of a night with live music, DJ sets and beach parties.
- RiuLand kids' club
There's plenty to keep the little ones entertained at the RiuLand kids' club.
