Posted: 24-Aug-18 09:12

Not one, not two, not three but six Cuba hotels by Spanish chain Melia have been nominated for the World Travel Awards 2018. The news was released by Melia Hotels International, who also revealed that the nominated hotels and resorts in Cuba were the Melia Cohiba, Melia Cayo Coco, Paradisus Princesa del Mar, Paradisus Varadero and Paradisus Rios de Oro.

Six Melia hotels in Cuba are nominated for the World Travel Awards 2018

 The prestige of Melia hotels in Cuba is going from strength to strength, so much so that it has earned the Spanish hotelier a total of six different nominations in the upcoming edition of the World Travel Awards.

According to a recent press release by Melia Hotels International two of their Cuba hotels, namely the Melia Cohiba in Havana and Melia Cayo Coco in the Jardines del Rey archipelago in central Cuba, have been nominated for the title of Cuba’s Leading Hotel.

The other four Cuba hotels by Melia to be nominated were short-listed in the category of Cuba’s Leading Resort and three of the nominees are: Paradisus Varadero, Paradisus Princesa del Mar also in Varadero and Paradisus Rio de Oro in Holguin. This trio of hotels, all under Melia’s Paradisus sub-brand, which groups a selection of all-inclusive luxury resorts that they describe as:

“The most luxurious all-inclusive experience in the world.”

These are also eco-friendly hotels poised on two of Cuba’s most coveted beaches; Varadero and Guardalavaca. Lastly, the final hotel to have received a nomination in Cuba’s Leading Resort category is Melia Las Dunas in Varadero which won the award last year.

But this sextet of Melia Hotels in Cuba wasn’t just nominated as top properties overall, as in the case of the Melia Cohiba it received a second nomination. Its Master Suite - The Level is also nominated for the title of Cuba’s Leading Hotel Suite.

Doubtlessly this has been a good year for Melia Cuba, who has been operating in the Caribbean island for over 25 years and has won numerous awards for the management of their Cuba hotels. It seems that the Spanish hotelier continues amassing success in the island after it reported record-breaking increases in revenue last year and then announced the opening of two Cuba hotels this year.

Furthermore in 2018 Melia opened five new hotels islandwide, adding to their already extensive Cuba portfolio with a new a total of 409 properties in Cuba (which will become 411 before the end of the year with the opening of the new Paradisus Los Cayos in Cayo Santa Maria and the revamped Melia Internacional in Varadero - a legendary hotel, famous for being Varadero’s first that is being rebuilt from the ground up).

For the first time, Melia has also begun exploiting the potential of other Cuban tourist destinations away from the beaches. The Spanish hotel chain cemented its strong bet on Cuba by expanding beyond the beach resorts and the capital for the first time with the opening of three hotels in the colonial southern city of Cienfuegos, La Union, Jagua and Melia San Carlos, and the addition of two properties in Camaguey; Hotel Colon and Gran Hotel, both centrally located to put guests at the doorstep of this little-explored eastern city’s many wondrous attractions, which by the way, are in the process of getting a major makeover. It’s only a waiting game now to see which of the six Melia hotels in Cuba manage to take the prize home and win any of the World Travel Awards 2018 they have been nominated for.
