Iberostar Grand Packard to open its doors by the end of 2018

Iberostar Hotels & Resorts strengthens its privileged position in Cuba, as the Spanish hotel chain prepares to open another 5-star venue in the island. According to official statements from Iberostar, the new hotel that is being developed in the historic heart of Old Havana should be ready to open its doors to the public soon.

The Iberostar Grand Packard, which is expected to launch in the last trimester of 2018, is set to amaze guests with its beautiful colonial architecture and modern luxury.

The inauguration of Iberostar Grand Packard coincides with two big events: Havana’s 500th foundation anniversary and the hotel chain’s 25th year of operating in Cuba. The new venue will be Iberostar’s first ultra-luxurious property in the island, set within a magnificent colonial building that has been carefully restored to maintain the stunning exterior architecture and upgraded to include the most up-to-date features of lavish living.

When speaking of how important a destination the island had become for the company, Aurelio Vazquez, CEO of Iberostar Group said:

“Cuba has always been one of our key destinations and one of our clients’ favourites on an international scale. The Iberostar Grand Packard embodies not only our bet on Cuba but also great respect for its past and present, as well as our commitment to excellence, quality and customer experience.”

Iberostar Grand Packard has been reborn, keeping its beautiful colonial façade that once welcomed distinguished guests, such as writer Pablo Neruda and actor Marlon Brando. The venue preserves the essence of Old Havana’s iconic promenade, the “Paseo del Prado”, whilst incorporating a pioneering modern structure at the top. The hotel rooftop will be a stunning spot, where guests will be able to enjoy views of the capital’s dazzling Malecon seawall, Havana’s Bay and the Morro Fortress.

The unique property will also stand out for its exclusive services and delightful facilities. In addition to excellent culinary options (including three bars and six restaurants), Iberostar Grand Packard will boast a bountiful agenda of amazing music performances and dance spectacles by some of the island’s most talented artists.

With the opening of Iberostar Grand Packard by the end of 2018, the hotel chain will have inaugurated a total of 8 properties across Santiago de Cuba, Holguin and Havana this year. From its launch in Cuba in 1993 to the present, Iberostar has solidified its business with Cuba, with almost 20 properties in operation. In regards to the future, the Spanish company has set itself the target of reaching 12,000 rooms in the island by 2020.
