With the best destination for your Dominican escape, the completely renovated and all new Riu Bambu is located just 19 miles from the Punta Cana International Airport, 31 miles from the beautiful town of Higuey, a mere 1980 feet from Caribbean Street and directly on top of the incredible Arena Gorda Beach. This is the prime spot for the best combination of shopping and beach lounging. Caribbean Street is RIU's popular dining, shopping and entertainment strip. RIU guests will love this unique shopping and late night entertainment area, which is strategically located away from the guest rooms and villas.

Perfect for families, Riu Bambu's Family Rooms can hold up to five people, and of the 1000 rooms in the hotel, 72 of them are now Family Rooms. They are bigger than standard double rooms and are equipped with a sofa bed. These rooms even come with a special deal: the first child is free and the second and third are both half off (with two full-paying adults). And, as part of the RIU Complex, there are shared amenities available to Riu Bambu guests. With the 'Stay at One, Play at More' concept, guests share many of the resort facilities, making the Riu Bambu an unbelievable value. Enjoy all the facilities at the Riu Bambu and sister hotel, Riu Naiboa (excludes dinner restaurants).

Splash Water Park
Conveniently located to all hotels. At Splash Water Park, the Body Vortex, a closed body slide that shoots you towards the pool, the Kamikaze, with impressive drops from various heights, and the free-fall slide, for experiencing a unique sensation, await you. Plus, kids will enjoy the children's pool and attractions designed especially for them. Free entrance for guests staying within the RIU complex at the following hotels: Riu Palace Punta Cana, Riu Palace Macao, Riu Palace Bavaro, Riu Naiboa and Riu Bambu.

Riu Pool Party - Now Open!
The RIU Pool Party is now open in Punta Cana! This new area will host large parties 4 times a week with local and international DJs, exciting lighting and sound effects and 4 poolside bars (including a poolside bar and a snack bar). Each week will offer a Jungle party, a Pink Party, a Neon Party and a White Party, and every party will have its own unique vibe. These parties are part of the all-inclusive package and are open to all RIU guests 18+ staying at Riu Palace Macao, Riu Palace Punta Cana, Riu Palace Bavaro, Riu Bambu and Riu Naiboa, so come out and enjoy the fun!
