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.
After its grand re-opening as the new NH Collection Victoria, there is one historic hotel in the heart of Havana´s downtown neighbourhood of Vedado who shines brighter than ever. The revived NH Collection Victoria has become the Spanish hotelier´s second property in the Cuban capital after their flagship NH Capri hotel opened in mid-2012 and caused furore nationally and internationally as a restored, historical 50s gem with a mafia-infused past.
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.
Spanish Globalia Group's Be Live hotel chain has just added the Chateau Miramar hotel to their portfolio of Cuba hotels; a property set directly overlooking the sea in a centric area of the elegant Miramar district. This boutique hotel with just 50 rooms had been slowly falling into disrepair for some time with quality standards dropping, but thanks to Be Live's takeover it is to enjoy a full makeover and reopen as the 4-star property it is already marketed as.
On a recent familiarisation trip to the island the team at Cuba holidays enjoyed a full guided tour of the Hotel Nacional de Cuba, visiting the famous gardens overlooking the Malecon, finding out more about the many celebrities that had been past guests at the hotel's hall of fame and tucking into a delicious lunch with their Cuban counterparts. They also met up with ground-handler Cubanacan and delivered a donation for the victims of Hurricane Irma.
