Due to the COVID-19, RIU Hotels & Resorts closed its 99 hotels and resorts around the world. However, 20 of its hotels were located in Mexico.
The hotel chain reopened its two properties in Cancun, which is a popular tourist destination. One of its properties Rui Palace Peninsula reopened for visitors last week. Whereas another property which is Riu Cancun will be reopening this week.
However, these are the first hotels of RIU Hotels & Resorts to open in the Mexican Caribbean. These hotels are located in Cancun’s Hotel Zone.
The company is planning to slowly reopen its hotels and resorts in other destinations throughout Mexico. It includes Costa Mujeres, Playa del Carmen, Los Cabos, Riviera Nayarit, Mazatlan, and Guadalajara, in addition to the remaining properties located in Cancun.
Training The Employees
However, RIU Hotels and Resorts is providing training to its employees through a specific training program. So the employees can welcome back the guests in a proper way and follow the coronavirus health protocols as per the hotel guidelines.
Moreover, the hotel chain is working in partnership with a consulting firm Preverisk on the new safety procedures.
Health and Safety Measures
Social distancing will be followed according to the guidelines. The RIU Hotels & Resort properties will be deep cleansed and properly disinfecting of the hotels and resorts will be ensured.
There will be limited capacity in common areas such as lounges, pools, and bars. The company is taking all precautionary measures as much as possible. It is doing so to ensure a safe and healthy experience for all its guests and employees.
Recovery of the City
Cancun celebrated its 50th anniversary this year. The reopening of resorts and hotels is a good sign for Cancun. It shows that the city will soon see tourists coming to visit. And this will help the city to recover as a tourist destination.
The city is reopening in phases and tourists are welcome to visit the destination. But they will have to follow all the health and safety measures implemented by the government.
“The most important thing right now is to revive the state’s economy, but we have to be careful with the health of our people,” said Carlos Manuel Joaquin, Governor Quintana Roo in a statement.
