Today we talk with Hugo Aguilera, the Director of Sales and Marketing for Riu Hotels. We explore the unique history of Riu Hotels and how it has expanded from its humble beginnings in Majorca, Spain to offering unparalleled hospitality across nine countries.

Discover the diverse sub-brands of the Riu family—whether it’s Riu Plaza located in the heart of global cities, or all-inclusive Riu Palace Hotels and Riu Hotels positioned on the world’s most pristine beaches. Learn about the quintessential Riu resort experience—comprehensive, immersive, and tailor-made to provide comfort and local cultural immersion, be it in Mexico, Costa Rica, Dubai, or the Maldives.

We also discuss the burgeoning popularity of all-inclusive vacations in a post-pandemic world, and value and quality offered by Riu Resorts. Stay tuned as Jessica Deverson, our deals guru, decodes the current travel deals and underlines the role of travel advisors.

To top it off, we share our recent travel escapades—Mike’s UK adventure filled with golfing in Scotland and vegetarian haggis, and James’s tranquil retreat at Pebble Beach, California, which was followed by an unplanned 48-hour journey back home.
