New Hotel Rooms for Tourism in Cuba

Posted April 08, 2003 by publisher in Cuba Travel.

Havana | The largest Antillean Island expects to complete 1,700 rooms for international tourism this year, as part of the leisure industry’s expansion strategy.

Cuban tourist authorities pointed out that a 300-room hotel would be built in Cayo Largo del Sur this year.

They added that another 550-room hotel would open in Holguín, as well as 60 cabins that were completed in the western province of Pinar del Río.

Forty out of those 60 cabins belong to the Cuban hotel chain Horizontes and are located in Cayo Levisa and Rancho San Vicente. The other 20 cabins, run by Puerto Sol, are in the María La Gorda international diving center, in the Guanahacabibes Peninsula.

The cabins, whose design is based on the so-called Chilean modules, are made of wood and tiles. They account for a 10-percent growth in Pinar del Río’s hotel capacity (400 rooms) for international tourism.

In 2002, 2,700 new and remodeled rooms were added to Cuba’s hotel infrastructure, which also benefited from dozens of extra-hotel services, including the inauguration of Jardines del Rey’s international airport.
