Check Out Cuba’s Newest 5-Star Hotel

If you ever needed a reason to fly over to Cuba before American tourism takes it over, the Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana is it. The 5-star hotel has opened right in the middle of Old Havana, transforming a European-style shopping arcade into a focal point of luxury in Cuba.

The hotel boasts 246 rooms, three bars, three restaurants, a top-floor gym, a rooftop pool, and a 10,000-square-foot spa. Each aspect celebrates the style of Cuba in different ways, with everything from cigars at the EvocaciĆ³n Tobacco Lounge to the Hemingway Daiquiri at Bar Constante. It’s all tied together with high-ceilings and a tasteful white-and-gray palette throughout, totally revamping the 100-year old arcade.

With the soft opening just happening over the weekend, the Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana aims to be fully operational by June 7th.
