Cuban Lux­ury

World Travel Magazine - - Just In - LAURA EL­LIOTT

Cuba’s first true lux­ury ho­tel brings Euro­pean flair to old Ha­vana. Gran Ho­tel Man­zana Kempin­ski La Ha­bana houses 246 rooms and suites in a re­fur­bished shop­ping ar­cade, which was orig­i­nally built be­tween 1894 and 1917.

This his­toric struc­ture is sur­rounded by UNESCO World Her­itage Sites, the Capi­tol, and the Great The­atre of Ha­vana – so there is no short­age of things to do right out the front door of the ho­tel. How­ever, with the con­tem­po­rary ameni­ties and el­e­gant at­mos­phere at the ho­tel, you might not want to leave.

The newly opened ho­tel fea­tures a stun­ning rooftop pool and a one-of-a-kind cigar lounge, where you can en­joy an ex­pan­sive view across the old city. The San Cris­to­bal Panoramic Restau­rant spe­cialises in Caribbean seafood, or sam­ple a re­fined Cuban break­fast at Con­flu­en­cias. You’ll also be able to in­dulge in state-of-the-art spa treat­ments for an even more lux­u­ri­ous ex­pe­ri­ence.

A per­fect blend of mod­ern fur­nish­ings with tra­di­tional ar­chi­tec­ture and boast­ing a clas­sic ur­ban feel, the new Gran Ho­tel Man­zana Kempin­ski La Ha­bana is the ideal des­ti­na­tion for a visit to “Ha­vana Vieja.”
