The call of Cuba is hard to ig­nore and now ho­tel groups are trip­ping over them­selves to stake a claim in the Latin Amer­i­can coun­try, ever since the US re­stored diplo­matic re­la­tions and fu­elled a tourism boom. Meliá Ho­tels In­ter­na­tional will be one of the many, with plans for eight ho­tels in the is­land na­tion span­ning from the east to the west, manag­ing ex­ist­ing ho­tels as well as new prop­er­ties. Ha­vana won’t be the only city wel­com­ing new ho­tels; in the city of Cien­fue­gos, a World Her­itage Site, Meliá will man­age the 56-room San Car­los Ho­tel and the 49-room Union Ho­tel and the 173-room Jagua Ho­tel un­der the INNSIDE by Meliá brand. In Trinidad – the Cuban city, not the Caribbean na­tion – the 279-room An­con Ho­tel will un­dergo a facelift and a new 102-room ho­tel will take shape at the end of An­con peninsula. In Ca­m­agüey, Meliá will man­age the 72-room Gran Ho­tel, the 58-room Ho­tel Colón and the 142-room Ho­tel Ca­m­agüey. The Sol Palmera was the first Meliá ho­tel to open in Cuba, 25 years ago. meli­a­ho­telsin­ter­na­tional.com.
