Seven Melia hotels in Cuba nominated for the 26th edition of the World Travel Awards

Posted: 21-Jan-19 09:05

Melia Cuba does it again. The Spanish hotelier who runs the largest percentage of foreign hotels in the island and whose prestige is widely recognised in Cuba and beyond has just welcomed the news that seven of its Cuba properties have been nominated for the World Travel Awards 2019. Among their nominated Cuba hotels is the recently opened Paradisus Los Cayos, a luxury eco-resort in one of Cayo Santa Maria´s finest beach stretches.

Seven Melia hotels in Cuba nominated for the 26th edition of the World Travel Awards

It looks like Melia Hotels International’s prestige in Cuba will continue earning the Spanish hotelier worldwide recognition and coveted accolades after a recent announcement that seven of its Cuba hotels were nominated for the World Travel Awards 26th edition.

But Melia Cuba is already used to the recognition and the popularity of its hotels in Cuba. Last year six of Melia’s Cuba hotels were nominated for the World Travel Awards 2018 with only one of them winning the coveted award they were in for; namely, the Paradisus Princesa del Mar in Varadero which won the title of Cuba’s Leading Resort. Two other Cuban hotels won big at the World Travel Awards 2018 but they were not part of Melia’s portfolio (one was 80-year-old icon Hotel Nacional and the other the ground-breakingly luxurious Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana.

Turning our attention back to Melia’s hotels in Cuba, what’s new in the nominations of the upcoming World Travel Awards 2019 is the nomination of a brand new hotel that just opened last year. The new Paradisus Los Cayos opened in early December 2018, instantly becoming part of the protected Buenavista Biosphere Reserve in Cayo Santa Maria. With a distinctive eco-label, a sleek, modern and elegant design, this new luxury resort faces a secluded stretch of virgin beach, in an area home to the world’s third largest coral reef.

The other six nominated Melia Cuba hotels are the same ones that were nominated in last year’s World Travel Awards. Battling out for the title of Cuba’s Leading Resort are the Paradisus Rios de Oro in Holguin, Paradisus Princesa del Mar in Varadero and Melia Las Dunas (which has previously won the award in the same category) also in Varadero. Competing for the title of Cuba’s Leading Hotel are Melia Cohiba in Havana and Melia Cayo Coco in Cayo Coco.

And that’s not all. To the above World Travel Awards nominations, one of the room categories in one of Melia Cuba’s hotels is being nominated in the Category of Cuba’s Leading Hotel Suite. The room in question is the Master Suite The Level at Melia Cohiba.

Have you stayed at any of the above-mentioned Melia hotels in Cuba? Do you think any of them should win the coveted awards? Sadly, you won’t find out until the winners are revealed in a gala ceremony scheduled for November 2019. So, we have a bit of a wait ahead of us but in the meantime why not consider a Cuba holiday at either of these nominated Melia Cuba hotels?
