Gran Hotel Mazana Kempinski La Habana Is In The Heart Of Old Havana
Worldwide hotel properties Kempinski is bringing 5-star luxury to Havana when it opens its first hotel in Cuba in the second quarter of 2017.
The Gran Hotel Mazana Kempinski La Habana is located within the historic Manzana de Gómez building in the heart of Old Havana in what is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It features 246 rooms and suites.
Kempinski Hotels signed a management contract with the Grupo de Turismo Gaviota SA.
“We are very pleased to be opening this outstanding hotel in the spring,” says Markus Semer, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of Kempinski Hotels. “The opening is a continuation of our pioneering spirit as the Gran Hotel Kempinski Manzana La Habana will be Cuba’s first modern luxury five-star hotel. And its location within a famous historic building currently makes it the most exclusive hotel project in Old Havana.”
The size of the rooms and suites range in size from 40 to the stunning presidential suite’s 150 square metres – all with ceilings of four to five metres. The rooftop terrace and swimming pool, with views over the old town, are just one of the many highlights. There is a spa managed by Resense, which offers guests more than 1,000 square metres of relaxation, plus three restaurants, a lobby bar, a cigar lounge (naturally, in Cuba) and a business centre.
“With its impeccable 120-year history, European-style luxury and extraordinary quality, Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group Kempinski is a perfect fit with the Manzana de Gómez,” said Carlos M. Latuff, Executive President Grupo de Turismo Gaviota SA.
“Constructed at the beginning of the 20th century, as Cuba’s first European-style shopping arcade, it is an iconic building in an important historical area. Together with Kempinski we will make this jewel the city’s leading luxury hotel.”
