Iberostar opens its first Selection hotel in Cuba with Star Prestige service

Posted: 05-Dec-18 08:55

Iberostar’s flagship property in eastern Cuba opened just a couple of weeks ago but at the time it wasn’t officially unveiled that this new property would be part of the Spanish hotel chain’s Selection sub-brand, a category that groups superior five-star luxury resorts. After starting to welcome guests the property has now been revealed to also have a Star Prestige section in a separate building, catering to adults-only with premium facilities.

Iberostar opens its first Selection hotel in Cuba with Star Prestige service

Cuba has welcomed its first ever Selection hotel as the new Iberostar Holguin first opened its doors on 15th November. When we told you about the resort’s impending opening a month ago we didn’t know (and nor did the press that echoed the news of its opening) that Iberostar’s first hotel in eastern Cuba would also be the brand’s first Selection hotel in the island.

As it happens, the new Iberostar Holguin has now joined the Spanish hotelier’s portfolio of Selection hotels, a sub-brand grouping premium five-star luxury properties with the wow factor. But that’s not all, as it has also been unveiled that the new resort complex includes a separate Star Prestige area on a custom-built edification adjacent to the main resort and offering exclusive superior services for guests over 18 only.

The newly opened Iberostar Holguin is made up of 12 low-rise buildings housing a total of 638 guest rooms distributed in bungalows and coming in an array of categories to suit a variety of holidaymakers. Room categories include standard and standard sea view as well as Star Prestige standard and Star Prestige junior suite and two presidential suites.

The swanky new property boasts six dining venues, including a Japanese restaurant (Sake), a beachfront a la carte restaurant (Primavera), a gourmet restaurant with live piano, violin, clarinet or saxophone music, a casual beachside steakhouse (Nogal), two all-day dining restaurants (Coral and El Mosaico) and one specialising in Mediterranean fare (Azul Profundo). Beyond the privileged seafront setting on a secluded pristine beach, four stunning freeform pools and a tropical garden complete the picture.

Families are well looked after too with Iberostar Holguin featuring two kids’ club (for ages 4 to 7 and 8 to 12), dedicated children’s pool and an extensive daily activity programme as well as, wait for it…(drum roll please) - eastern Cuba’s first water park! And although we can’t find evidence of this on the official website yet, we’re giving it time as this resort has barely opened just days ago. There’s not even a single review published on TripAdvisor yet, we have to hold our horses and give it some time.

Iberostar Holguin sits in an area of Holguin known as Estero, next to Playa Pesquero and just a stone’s throw from Cayo Bariay, the key where Columbus first landed in Cuba over 500 years ago. It’s also less than half an hour’s ride away from Cayo Saetia, a blessed virginal island ideal for a Robinson-Crusoe style day trip.
