Camaguey invests in new hotels to welcome more tourists

After re-establishing diplomatic bonds with the US, Cuba has become the centre of attention for holidaymakers around the world, who wish to visit the island before any big changes come along. Preparing ahead for when (or if) all travel bans for Americans are finally lifted and the embargo comes to an end, the island has received millionaire investments to create better tourism infrastructure, specifically increasing the number of hotels to welcome travellers all over the country.

From the most popular destinations like the capital Havana and beach hub Varadero, to up-and-coming settings like Holguin, the country boasts numerous projects. As the beautiful province of Camaguey becomes one of the most visited spots in the island, thanks to natural attractions like Santa Lucia beach and the colonial capital, new hotels are in the pipeline for the near future.

This territory has experienced significant growth in tourist arrivals in the past few years and is now one of the destinations for some carriers offering direct flights to and from the US. JetBlue will fly to Camaguey by the end of the month and celebrate the occasionwith cheap fares priced at $99. The demand has not been ignored and the city is now getting ready to open new facilities in Camaguey, including San Juan de Dios Hotel, El Colonial Hotel and Planta Real hotel, all of which will be administered by local Cubancacan hotel group.

Set within an area declared National Monument and part of Camaguey’s colonial city that has been recognised as World Heritage Site, the San Juan de Dios Hotel is set near a charming square bearing the same name. This new property should be finished by 2017 and will surely become a favourite amongst visitors due to its privileged position and comfy accommodations.

The small but charming El Colonial Hotel will comprise ten rooms of which six are already finished, and works are being carried out to conclude the other four and other hotel areas. Builders are currently finishing the interior patio, where other complimentary facilities will be situated, including a jacuzzi.

In the beach paradise of Santa Lucia, Camaguey’s main sun and sand destination, construction advances on the Planta Real Hotel. This 36-room venue will open as a 5-star hotel and is expected to be ready in 2017. Management director stated that:

“The biggest challenge is in developing the infrastructure with the required quality, so that facilities fit into the high standards Camaguey is expecting.”

According to the projects’ management directors, works are being carried out on time. This schedule is being constantly checked in order to guarantee that all plans are developed in an adequate fashion.
