Posted: 23-May-17 09:47

Hotel operator Melia has announced plans to expand its portfolio, with several new sites being added to the already-27-strong number of properties it has in Cuba. New addresses in colonial Trinidad, Camaguey, and Cienfuegos will focus on showcasing the history, heritage and culture of the island, according to the firm.

Melia Cuba to operate addresses in three Cuban World Heritage Hotspots

Hotel giant Melia is preparing to add three new urban addresses to its Cuba portfolio, offering guests the chance to experience first hand some of the island’s most memorable locations, with a heavy slant on history and culture.

The brand already offers 27 resort options, mainly situated on stunning beachfronts and in the biggest tourist areas the Caribbean nation has to offer. The new addresses will focus on "Cuban soul, history, and culture", according to a recent post on the company’s in-house blog.

The three cities chosen for new operations include the colonial gem, Trinidad, and Camaguey, another township boasting centuries-old aesthetics. This pair of villages were the among the first seven to ever be established on the island, between 1511 and 1515. The third will be the French-influenced Cienfuegos, also known as "la Perla del Sur", which is littered with neoclassical architecture and was originally founded in 1819 by the hands of 50 families hailing from Burdeos, New Orleans, and Haiti.

The hotels include the majestic San Carlos, La Union and El Jagua in Cienfuegos, along with the Gran Hotel and Colon in Camaguey. The buildings alone are enough to make guests seriously consider stocking up on a second digital camera memory card, with incredible period features throughout. Meanwhile, more modern options include the Hotel Camaguey, built in 1959 in the fields of the former state property, Villa Angela, 4KM outside the geographical town centre.

For something even more up to date, the brand new Melia Trinidad will be constructed on Maria Aguilar beach, the entrance to the Ancon Peninsula. The news comes after 30 years of Melia’s presence in Cuba, cementing the firm’s status as one of the most prominent international travel brands on the island. Some work will include input from Islazul, the only Cuban touristic organisation that the hotel company hasn’t partnered with previously.

Other Melia properties already open to guests can be found in Havana, Santiago, Varadero, Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo, and Cayo Largo on Esmerelda Beach, meaning the new additions will primarily be expanding on the town and city offerings, whilst also adding to the coastal portfolio that has long-since proven popular with sun-seekers looking to take advantage of Cuba’s reputation as home to some of the most incredible stretches of sand to be found anywhere on the planet.
