Havana.- The Spanish hotel group Sol Meliá, one of Spain’s largest consortiums, is betting on expansion in the Cuban market.
Company executives pointed out that the group’s lodging capacity will increase after the inauguration of two hotels, whose construction will begin this year.
After the inauguration of the two hotels, Sol Meliá will strengthen its position in the Caribbean Island, where it will have 25 hotels, totaling 8,000 rooms.
The 900-room Club Paradiso Hotel will be built on Cayo Largo del Sur and will cost 50 million dollars, while the second establishment (1,000 rooms) will be constructed on Cayo Santa María.
According to the construction program, the two hotels will be completed in 2006, thus contributing to Sol Meliá‘s consolidation in the Caribbean region.
