Meliá Cuba has a hotel without blackouts

HAVANA, May 8 Meliá Hotels International wants to further strengthen its presence in Cuba with new projects. The Caribbean island is one of the hotel group’s main markets, where it already has 32 establishments, and expects to reach 3.5 million tourists in 2023, recovering after the crisis.

For this reason, during the Fitcuba tourism fair, the vice president and CEO of the hotel Gabriel Escarrer has announced new projects that seek to consolidate the chain in the country and in the Caribbean region.

Meliá Trinidad Peninsula will open next autumn and will be the first five-star hotel in the colonial town of Trinidad, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, taking another step in the chain’s commitment to cutting-edge luxury hotels.

Located a few minutes from the city and the Topes de Collantes natural park, the hotel stretches out at the foot of María Aguilar beach, on the Ancón peninsula, with spectacular views of the Caribbean waters and the Escambray mountains. It has more than 400 modern rooms, some of them with direct access to the pool.

For its part, Varadero Sol Caribe Beach has just opened its doors. It is specially designed for families, on the beachfront and with easy access to the city center and shopping areas, as well as having an entertaining entertainment program for all ages.

New hotels and a commitment to modernity



In addition, four new projects will be added to these two proposals, which will start operating this year. The INNSiDE Habana Catedral is a completely new 50-room hotel that will mark the arrival of one of the group’s lifestyle brands in the capital.

Travelers will find in this hotel, located in the central square of the cathedral, an affordable proposal with Caribbean roots.

And from the newest, the hotel will also go iconic as it will be in charge of the well-known Hotel Plaza de La Habana, with 188 rooms. Inaugurated in 1909 and famous for its neoclassical architecture and triangular floor plan, it will join the exclusive portfolio of The Meliá Collection, the group’s youngest luxury brand, which encompasses the most unique and charismatic hotels.

Without leaving the capital, the company will assume the management of the historic Hotel Sevilla, located next to Paseo del Prado; a property, a symbol in the heritage city, which is incorporated into the Affiliated by Meliá network and has 178 rooms

Finally, Meliá will manage the Sol Turquesa Beach Hotel in Holguín. An accommodation that simulates a Spanish hacienda from the end of the 19th century and that has 531 rooms and is located in the middle of a magnificent natural landscape, on Yuraguanal beach.
