Signature Vacations announces opening of new Riu Dunamar resort in Playa Mujeres in late 2017

TORONTO, June 12, 2017 /CNW/ - Signature Vacations is pleased to announce that Riu Dunamar will open in Playa Mujeres, Mexico, at the end of this year. Operated by the tour operator's exclusive hotel partner, RIU Hotels and Resorts, the resort combines a stunning natural environment with an array of modern amenities including five refreshing pools, a fitness centre, varied water sports and numerous à la carte dining options. A short transfer from Cancun International Airport, Playa Mujeres boasts beautiful beaches and crystal-clear waters perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving on the surrounding coral reefs. The area is known to be home to luxurious resorts, while providing its visitors tranquil and peaceful settings to enjoy a relaxing getaway.

Nestled on an idyllic stretch of Playa Mujeres Beach, opposite charming Isla Mujeres, Riu Dunamar offers innumerable services and amenities that adults, couples, and families alike will enjoy and offers free Wi-Fi throughout. Guests at this resort can relax under the warm Mexican sun from the comfort of a lounger by one of the pools, or enjoy complimentary non-motorized water sports such as kayaking and snorkelling. Families will enjoy the daytime programming for children at the RiuLand Kids' Club, while those seeking some rejuvenation can visit the Renova Spa for tranquil massages and other indulgent treatments. Foodies will also appreciate the resort's many refined gastronomic specialties, including gourmet Asian and Italian cuisines from the à la carte dining venues and succulent steakhouse classics.

President of Tour Operations for Signature Vacations, Andrew Dawson, commented on the news. "We are very excited about this new addition to our hotel lineup. RIU Hotels & Resorts are consistently popular among our customers and we are sure that this latest resort, which also allows travellers to visit a less-travelled corner of Mexico's celebrated Caribbean coastline, will become a favourite in no time."
