Opening Ceremony

The Hotel Riu Dubai is the first hotel of the Spanish chain in the Middle East, and the first 4-star hotel with an all-inclusive family concept in the destination.

The project located on Deira Islands, is a partnership between RIU Hotels & Resorts and the Nakheel group, promoter of developments such as The Palm Jumeirah and the new coastal city of Dubai: Deira Islands.


The Riu Dubai is a hotel of 800 rooms that offers two swimming pools for children and three for adults, terrace, and a water park "Splash" plus four restaurants.

The 24-hour All Inclusive by RIU service includes all meals, snacks and beverages offered at all hotel bars and restaurants, with no limits or timetables.

By Mr. Luis Riu, CEO of RIU Hotels & Resorts:

The opening of the Riu Dubai Hotel marks a new milestone in the internationalization of our hotel chain as it is the first hotel in the Middle East. This is a unique opportunity to offer our full experience with the all-inclusive 24-hour product, which is so popular with our customers in Europe and America, but this time in a totally new destination. We are entering into this adventure with Nakheel, who is the best local partner imaginable thanks to his extensive experience in large-scale construction and destination projects, as well as his strong commitment to the tourism sector in Dubai. We are confident that this hotel will be a great success among our most traditional clients in Europe and also among those who will now know us in the region.

By H.E. Mohammed Al-Shaibani, Chairman of Nakheel:

Nakheel has a long and successful history of creating various tourism projects that are in line with the objectives of the government of Dubai. I am delighted to see that our first hospitality alliance has come to fruition. The inauguration of the Riu Dubai is a key milestone for Nakheel, Deira Island and Dubai and highlights our commitment to partner with recognized international brands to achieve the goal of introducing new and unique tourism concepts to the emirate.
