ACCOR ready to unveil the new Pullman Cayo Coco this week

Posted: 15-Dec-15 11:06

Expected to officially open by the end of this week, the opening of the new Pullman Cayo Coco - ACCOR's latest investment in Cuba - will go with a big bang as it coincides with the French hotel chain's 20th birthday in Cuba. On a recently celebrated gala to mark their two decades in the island, ACCOR's representative in Cuba said that with this latest opening the company is betting big on high-end luxury as the new Pullman Cayo Coco will be their first five-star property on the island.

ACCOR ready to unveil the new Pullman Cayo Coco this week

The date has been set for 17th December as the final grand opening to the much-awaited new Pullman Cayo Coco. It looks as though it will all happen right on track after all and the latest Gran Caribe announcement published on 31st October was indeed more accurate than I had envisaged – it didn’t give a definite date but said the opening would happen this month.

I had previously investigated on the issue of why it had not open yet after another delay (it was first supposed to open on November 2015) and worked out that since most tour operators didn’t sell its rooms until February, the hotel wouldn’t be officially opened to guests until then. But that was a misleading lead.

As it turns out and as was recently announced by Hosteltur, the new Pullman will indeed be opening this month and in just a few days in fact. With a recently celebrated gala to mark their 20th anniversary in Cuba, the French hotel chain that owns the upscale Pullman brand – ACCOR – is thrilled to introduce its luxury signature name to Cuba, where it already operates two properties: the four-star Mercure Sevilla in Havana and the three-star Mercure Playa de Oro in Varadero.

Eric Peyre, ACCOR Cuba’s delegate in Havana spoke recently to Hosteltur to explain that the new opening will see the debut of the exclusive Pullman brand in Cuba, a name that stands for the highest luxury level across the ACCOR family and under which a total of 81 hotels operate in 20 countries worldwide.

Built in partnership with Cuba’s state-owned hotel management company, Gran Caribe, the Pullman Cayo Coco will offer 518 sleek new rooms, distributed along bungalows spread across three distinct resort areas and located on a virgin beach stretching for over two kilometres in Las Coloradas.

With its opening it will become the first hotel in Cuba to offer Wi-Fi in all its rooms at no additional cost, a truly revolutionary approach not seen elsewhere in Cuba. It will operate on an all-inclusive basis as and will feature a separate adults-only property area called The Collection by Pullman; strictly for guests over 18 only and offering exclusive access to certain restaurants and bars – it doesn’t get much more sophisticated and intimate than that!
