Kempinski To Bring Five-Star Luxury to Havana
by Jessica Montevago


Geneva-based Kempinski Hotels said it plans to open a five-star hotel this spring in Old Havana, making it one of the few luxury hotels in the Cuban capital.

Housed in the historic Manzana de Gómez building, the 246-room Gran Hotel Kempinski Manzana La Habana will feature a 1,600-square-foot presidential suite, a rooftop terrace and swimming pool, three restaurants, a cigar lounge, a business center and a spa operated by Resense, a Swiss luxury spa brand.

No date has been set for the grand opening, but the hotel is expected to come online sometime this year.
