Grand Aston La Habana, an iconic hotel for an iconic city
Archipielago International, Southeast Asia's leading hotel chain, is set to open a new luxury hotel in Havana on 1st March 2022. Named the Grand Aston La Habana, the hotel has been designed with two iconic towers, each soaring up more than 20 floors, boasting a modernist design that integrates perfectly with the urban landscape of the Malecon district.
"A haven of chic and contemporary sophistication, the new Grand Aston La Habana takes modern lifestyle living to the next level, unveiling unique design architecture, fresh rooms, eclectic dining, inspiring event spaces and gorgeous wellness facilities, including an astonishing infinity pool that overlooks the shimmering waters of the iconic Florida Straits. Towering over the legendary Malecón, this urban oasis is ideally situated in bustling Vedado, close to offices, shopping, dining, and entertainment." - Aston Hotels International
So what does the Grand Aston La Habana offer?
The 600 stylish rooms and suites pay tribute to the rich history of the Vedado's neighbourhood and its artistic heritage, the hotel comes with world-class features like luxury beds with pillow-top mattresses and microfibre pillows, flat-screen TVs, air conditioning, a minibar, and views of the bay below which are guaranteed to take your breath away.
The hotel also offers wonderful dining options, whether you're looking for corporate entertaining, convivial catch-ups or romantic dinners.
Guests can indulge in a gastronomic buffet at the "Vida Bar", and enjoy food for the soul with a variety of international flavours and healthy organic recipes.
Restaurant "Oro" introduces the "Cocina de Autor" concept to Havana and serves inspiring fine dining creations by the hotel's illustrious Executive Chef, one of the top ten chefs in the Caribbean.
The lobby bar "Ventanas" is relaxing and alluring, while "Infused Bar" is the first high-end mixology bar in Cuba. However, the piece de resistance is "Havana 92", located on level 25 of the hotel. The most breath-taking sunsets you'll ever see are simply unforgettable.
Fancy a dip?
The hotel's infinity pool, overlooking the Florida Straits gives you the chance to get up close and personal with our aqua vistas, as the sea and the pool seemingly blend together with the sky.
The poolside area is stylish and offers guests an eatery that serves a variety of "ceviches", salad bowls, grilled meat dishes and more, in both cool indoor and outdoor settings.
You can enjoy basking in the sun during the day, and sipping crafted cocktails to the beat of beach tunes at sunset and after dark. Saturdays will see DJs from La Fábrica de Arte, Havana's ultimate name for art and entertainment. There, you can take in the glittering views of this iconic city and really let your hair down!
Top quality facilities for an iconic hotel
Grand Aston La Habana takes glamour and sophistication to the next level. The facilities at the hotel are second to none and include Club Rooms, a top of the range Fitness Centre with state-of-the-art equipment, wellness facilities including Havana's first Balinese spa, complete with massage beds, and highly-skilled masseur therapists offering a variety of treatments.
What's more, there are "relax rooms", born from the idea of offering guests the opportunity to fully relish and enjoy the luxury of time and peace in an undisturbed manner, as well as a hair studio for you to pamper yourself with a new haircut, hair-style, manicure, pedicure and much more.
Lastly, the beautiful gardens underline the hotel's commitment to green initiatives and sustainability. Interior landscaping reduces noise pollution while maintaining temperature levels, thus decreasing energy costs.
"It is widely understood that green spaces increase happiness, reduce stress, increase productivity and contribute effectively to our overall well-being. Considering how much time is spent indoors, we have recognised the importance of integrating 'green oases', to give our guests the opportunity to take a break, while relaxing amidst fresh, green vegetation." - Aston Hotels International
Unwinding and recharging at the Grand Aston La Habana
The Grand Aston La Habana is all about offering guests the opportunity to unwind, switch off, and recharge their batteries. However, at the same time, it's based in a vibrant and colourful part of Havana where travellers also have the chance to dive in at the deep end and immerse themselves in true Cuban culture. That means sipping cocktails, trying the local cuisine, dancing, and listening to the wonderful music famous here.
There's no doubt that come Spring 2022, many holidaymakers will choose to stay at this stunning new hotel for the top-class hospitality on offer, in one of the world's greatest holiday destinations.
