Two new hotels in the Melia chain will start operating in early 2022 in the provinces of Sancti Spiritus and Matanzas, Cuba. Melia Trinidad Peninsula and Varadero Sol Caribe are the names of these two additions to Melia Cuba's portfolio. Read on and find out more about this piece of great news!
Melia Cuba, the flagship for luxury in Cuba
The Spanish hotel chain Melia already has 32 hotels in Cuba, and staggeringly, approximately 14,000 rooms are available. When the two new hotels open, the Melia Trinida Peninsula and Varadero Sol Caribe will be the 33rd and 34th hotels that Melia operates in the “Pearl of the Caribbean”!
This success story is because Melia prides itself on the luxury interior spaces as well as the great variety of outdoor areas all their hotels provide.
What's more, both new hotels will offer all the essentials for ultimate family enjoyment, and the Director of Communication and Marketing Maite Artieda Barrosa recently stated that the whole Melia Cuba team has lately been dedicated to the renovation of rooms and furniture across all their hotels.
The repairs have taken place during the inactive period of services, generated by the pandemic. Some of the resorts that have benefited from these renovations are Sol Rio de Lunas y Mares, located in Holguin, and Sol Cayo Santa Maria, intended specifically for people over 16 years of age.
Raising the bar beyond tourism
In addition to the great news that two new top-quality hotels are opening, there has been further confirmation that several of the Melia hotels in Cuba are beginning to specialise in what is being known as MICE, meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions.
This means that the resorts and hotels are actively raising the bar and offering services beyond the tourism sector, providing the opportunity for businesses to hold corporate events at their establishments.
As an example, the Paradisus Varadero Resort and Spa received the recognition of "Best Hotel in Cuba" in the World MICE Awards this month. The facility was a worthy winner due to both lounges and every outdoor space equipped with multiple amenities to host corporate events, meetings, business conferences, and exhibitions of any kind.
Director of communication and marketing Maite Artieda Barrosa also confirmed that secure sanitary protocols are observed as standard across the Melia network of hotels, so that appointments and meetings could carry on in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
She said that several international online and hybrid events were held in 2021, and as well as the health measures put in place to protect the visitors to these conferences, all tourist sites on the island also have free internet access and Wi-Fi.
Melia Cuba, keeping guests safe and happy
Gabriel Escarrer, Melia's Executive Director, highlighted the chain's commitment to safety and growth in Cuba as a whole. He stated that Melia was totally committed to continuing business across the Caribbean island and reiterated the chain's desire to continue to grow.
The commercial relationship between the Spanish company and the beautiful Caribbean island began 31 years ago. Melia was the first foreign corporation to invest in Cuban tourism and since then, the hotels under the company's logo have increased their image and prestige on a worldwide level.
The two new hotels set to open next year in 2022 will go even further to increase the wide choices tourists have regarding where to stay whilst visiting Cuba.
