HAVANA, May 28 The Spanish hotel company Meliá Hotels International advances in the growth of its operations in Cuba with the construction of new hotels and the capital remodeling of establishments.
As announced in a statement last week, the firm expects to close this year with 34 hotels and 14,670 rooms under his administration on the island.
Among the novelties that it projects is the opening of a luxury hotel of the Paradisus brand in Cayo Santa María, located north of the central province of Villa Clara, in one of the most important tourist areas of the country.
The Paradisus Los Cayos, fourth of this line in the Caribbean nation and first of the new generation, will be opening its doors at the end of the year, a Cuban spokeswoman told Cuban television.
By the same dates will be the opening of the Meliá Internacional in Varadero. “It is a hotel that stands majestically in the best beach area of Varadero,” said the representative.
The presence in heritage cities such as Cienfuegos and Camagüey will also be strategic for Meliá this year. “What we are doing is to promote this segment of circuit tourism for customers to travel the island from east to west in the hands of Meliá.”
By 2020, the Spanish firm also plans to manage new hotels already under construction in Trinidad, considered one of the best preserved colonial enclaves in the Americas and which, since 1988, has been included in Unesco’s list of World Heritage Sites.
The installation of four stars will be built on the shores of María Aguilar beach, about 325 kilometers southeast of Havana, will be equipped with 400 rooms and has a design of three heights.
