New Hotel Internacional in Varadero gets closer to completion

Posted: 07-Aug-18 10:57

After being entirely demolished due to severe deterioration and damage, Varadero's legendary Hotel Internacional is close to being back on its feet. Works have advanced and 300 rooms have already been furnished. If all goes to schedule, the reborn property should be ready to open by the end of 2018.

New Hotel Internacional in Varadero gets closer to completion

Hotel Internacional was the first ever hotel to be built in the glorious beach destination of Varadero, during the 1950s. After many years of neglect, the property began to decline and reached a critical state, until it closed in 2015. At that moment the plan was to invest in a major renovation; however due to the severe damage, the hotel had be demolished and reconstructed from scratch.

Now, after three years of continued efforts, Hotel Internacional de Varadero is getting considerably closer to re-opening. According Aimee Alvarez Abad, who is responsible for the project’s investment and development, works have advanced considerably and it is likely that they are able to meet the original deadline of re-opening by the end of 2018. At present, construction works are in the phase of assembling and mounting systems.

To the date, the renewed Hotel Internacional already counts with 300 furbished rooms, which are currently under revision. Upon completion, it will feature a total of 900 rooms, which represents more than three times the number that the hotel originally featured.

In terms of design, the resort will mimic the 50s vibe and architecture, all the while adding touches of more modern decor as well as a convenient technology in order to offer a higher degree of comfort to visitors. The former Cabaret Continental will also maintain its place within the Hotel Internacional, and its construction should be completed by March.

The investment for the renovation project, which is currently at the hands of the local Tourism Property Developer, is being executed by French enterprise Bouygues Batiment International (BBI), and adjusts to the strict measures of environmental safety and sustainable construction (BREEAM). Alvarez Abad declared that if all continues to go to plan, the renovated Hotel Internacional would likely reach its target of welcoming visitors again by December.

Set across the dazzling Hicacos Peninsula, Varadero is the largest and one of the most popular beach resorts in Cuba. Its pristine 21 km-long white sand beach is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in the world. Thousands of visitors come to Varadero every year to relax and enjoy the calm turquoise waters and warm sun of this Caribbean paradise. Boasting a large number of all-inclusive beach-facing properties, Varadero is Cuba’s preferred beach hub.
