Kempinski to Open Luxury Hotel in Cuba

(Kempinski Hotels)

The tourism spotlight continues to be trained on Cuba as Kempinski announces a new luxury five-star hotel called Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana. Slated to open in the second quarter of 2017, the hotel will occupy the Manzana de Gómez building in central Old Havana. This is a historic landmark which opened in the early 20th century as Cuba’s first European-style shopping arcade.

There will be 246 rooms and suites, including a Presidential Suite encompassing more than 1600 square feet. Facilities include a rooftop swimming pool with views over the old city, a spa by Resense, three restaurants, a cigar lounge and a business center. For the Havana property, Kempinski Hotels signed a management contract with the Grupo de Turismo Gaviota SA.

Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group (dating from 1897), Kempinski now operates a portfolio of 75 five-star hotels and residences in 30 countries around the world. Other hotels in the pipeline include Riga, Latvia and Muscat, Oman.
