Six Cuban hotels nominated in the 2015 World Travel Awards

A glittering season is ahead for the best hotels in Cuba, now that several hotels on the island have been nominated in this year's prestigious World Travel Awards. Regarded as the ‘Oscars of the travel industry', the awards acknowledge excellence in tourist services.

Each year the awards are attended by the travel industry's most important decision makers, and influential trade and consumer media.

According to the Cuban Travel Ministry website CubaTravel, the nods went to three Paradisus hotels (Melia Hotels International luxury brand):

  • Paradisus Varadero Resort and Spa in Varadero
  • Paradisus Princesa del Mar in Varadero
  • Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort and Spa, in Guardalavaca

Other three Melia hotels were also nominated:

  • Melia Cohiba in Havana
  • Melia Las Dunas in Cayo Santa Maria, Villa Clara
  • Melia Cayo Coco in central Ciego de Avila

Melia Cohiba Hotel and Melia Cayo Coco Hotel and Resort are up for Cuba's Leading Hotel alongside Hotel Florida, Hotel Nacional de Cuba and the Iberostar Parque Central in Havana.

At the 2014 awards, the Hotel Nacional de Cuba took Cuba's Leading Hotel, Melia's Las Dunas won Leading Resort, and Leading Spa was claimed by the Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort and Spa.

Melia's newest all-inclusive Caribbean resort is the Jardines del Rey on the Cayo Coco beach area, which opened at the beginning of the year. The company has been a longstanding tourism fixture in Cuba, with nearly 30 hotels in eight destinations and a mainly Canadian customer base.

For more than 20 years, travel industry professionals and customers from more than 170 countries have participated in voting. The awards are sponsored and run by the Wall Street Journal newspaper. The organisers hold regional galas around the world to celebrate individual and group successes. Recent gala hosts include New Delhi and Anguilla.

The regional winners will then go through a final round of voting at the final awards ceremony to see who will scoop the top honours at the World Travel Awards 2015.
