TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 21, 2014) - Following a spectacular $30 million renovation, the luxurious Riu Cancun reopens this month. Exclusive to Signature Vacations, this all inclusive resort enjoys an enviable location set on one of Cancun's finest white sand beaches. Centrally located, this beachfront property boasts completely renovated and upgraded guest rooms, revamped on-site restaurants, and a newly designed façade and lobby.

Once inside the resort, the ocean view guest rooms are calm, welcoming, and well appointed, with 40" TVs, expansive showers (some rooms also feature whirlpool baths), satellite TV, electronic safes and Wi-Fi.

Dining at the Riu Cancun has also been transformed. Completely renovated, the main restaurant, the Miramar, offers a range of different world cuisine. For more casual dining, the pool restaurant now features an enclosed area "Coral," as well as outdoor terrace for relaxed al fresco dining "Turquesa." Guests also benefit from several theme restaurants at no additional charge including Kawachi, serving the best in Japanese cuisine and a new Italian restaurant, also open for lunch, La Toscana. Riu Cancun's impressive renovations extend to four bars including an aquatic bar, Wet'N Drinking; while the picturesque bar lounge, La Fiesta, has been enlarged with an expansive sea-facing terrace.

Accented with lush gardens and impressive new landscaping, Riu Cancun is the perfect place to unwind and recharge.
