Angsana Cayo Santa Maria officially opened November 15, marking Angsana’s first location in the Americas and Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts’ second in Cuba. The adults-only beach resort is located on a private island off Cuba’s northern coast.

The 252-room property provides several restaurants and bars, including a beachfront grill and jazz lounge. The location will also feature the hotel chain’s award-winning Angsana Spa, which offers Asian-inspired spa treatments. Other amenities include an outdoor pool, gym and a wedding venue.

The Trump Administration recently added the resort to its list of properties Americans are not allowed to visit because the Cuban military owns them. Our sister publication, Travel Agent Central, covered all the properties on the Cuba Restricted List.
