In Havana, Kempinski settles in a former department store

The Gran Hotel Kempinski Manzana La Habana will open next spring in the Cuban capital. This opening will take place within a context marked by the increase in arrivals in Cuba where hotel projects are multiplying.

The hotel will settle in the Manzana de Gómez building which was a former department store. This construction was built between 1894 and 1917 in Havana’s historic center (a UNESCO World Heritage district). It occupies an entire block in the heart of the city. The Thai hospitality group has signed a management contract with the Cuban group Gaviota (which has a 27,000 room portfolio in the country) for this development. This luxury hotel will offer 246 rooms, three restaurants, a conference center, a terrace with panoramic view, a spa and a swimming pool.

As relations between the United States and Cuba are eased, the country expects to see an increase in arrivals. Moreover, last year the government announced the creation of 110,000 additional rooms by 2030. In 2016, the country welcomed nearly 3.7 million tourists and this year Cuba expects to reach more than 4 million visitors.
