Cuba, which has reported a dynamic growth in tourism, thanks to its attractions, promotes the construction of high standard hotels.
Together with the traditional sun and beach options, which are complemented by nature, culture, history and adventures, the alternative offered by establishments linked to the luxury segment in Cuba has gained prominence.
As part of these actions, two emblematic five-star-plus hotels are already active in Havana's Historic Heart.
The Grand Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana and the Iberostar Grand Packard stand out in this segment, under the management of international companies and the Cuban leading group Gaviota.
In addition, the Paseo del Prado Hotel, located at the Havana intersection of Prado and Malecon streets is under construction and will become a famous hotel in the Cuban capital due to its wonderful view of the entrance to Bay of Havana.
The establishment will be run by the French chain AccorHotels and will have ten floors and 250 rooms, 36 of which will be suites, divided into three themes related to dance and Cuban musical genres such as son and salsa.
Another major project is that of Primera y D (First and D streets), in the capital district of El Vedado, a few meters from the Malecon sea drive and where two 27-storey towers with 600 rooms will be built.
The new investment allows foreign companies that operate or are interested in managing tourist facilities in the country to negotiate greater contractual facilities with Cuban owners, with a view to recovering their investment in a shorter period.
In addition, Cuba has, among its sun and beach options, one of the strongest attractions, with dozens of kilometers of excellent beaches, with warm and crystal-clear waters.
Three dozen diving centers operate throughout the country, with facilities for introductory courses and diving in coral reefs and caverns, under the international parameters required by that activity.
Together with this, there are 2,000 restaurants and 24,217 rooms in rental houses in the national territory, which complement the facilities offered by the public sector, where 26 joint ventures operate in hotels and associated real estate developments, as well as 100 administration contracts with 48,000 rooms and 22 foreign managers.
Cuba's options for recreation and rest are based on the existence of countless natural, historic and cultural attractions, which extend their influence to the entire territory.
