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.
Canadian hotel group Blue Diamond Resorts has quickly become the fastest growing hotel chain in the Caribbean with a total of 37 properties and over 14,500 rooms in six different countries. Caribbean News Digital recently spoke to the president of Sunwing Travel Group (Blue Diamond’s parent company) Jordi Pelfort and he shed some light on the brand’s upcoming developments.
One of the most lavish and stunning properties in the tourist hub of Varadero, the Paradisus Resort & Spa will add a special bonus to family travel, by launching exclusive family concierge services. Starting from November, this tempting offer featuring personalised service from a butler will be available for all those who choose to stay at the opulent family suites.
After investing a generous amount on improving services, Spanish hotel emporium, Melia, just announced that every single one of their Cuban properties now comprises Wi-Fi hotspots. In a country where Internet access is limited, this news come as a true perk for travellers who choose to stay any Melia hotel in the island.
The Melia group has doubled their profits in Cuba over the first half of 2016 with a significant increase that represents a quarter of their total global earnings over this period. The Spanish hotel chain made over 14 million euros in Cuba between January and June, 29 per cent more than over last year's first semester and thus solidifying their positon as the island's leading foreign hotelier.
