Cuba has a new five-star hotel which opened its doors this week in the northern group of keys of Villa Clara, in the island’s centre. The Grand Sirenis Cayo Santa María is the new luxury facility of Cuba’s tourist destination, one of the island’s most in demand today.
The hotel, belonging to the Spanish chain Sirenis Hotels & Resorts, has 612 double rooms, 18 junior suites and three suites, an all-inclusive service and two kilometres of fine sandy beach. In this sense, it favours environmental care and provides all the comforts demanded by those who choose this accommodation, the local media specified.
In addition, the facility offers its guests an architecture that combines a Caribbean style with contemporary touches, with fresh, modern and functional lines, as well as an offer of traditional Cuban cuisine and varied international proposals. For this it has two main buffet restaurants, four theme restaurants, a snack bar, a barbecue, and seven bars.
The resort also includes a sports club, a gym, two tennis courts and four large swimming pool areas, while visitors can also dive in the nearby coral reefs.
This is currently Cuba’s high season for tourism, a crucial moment for this sector, one of the driving forces of the Cuban economy. At the end of December, the island’s tourism authorities expect to receive about 4.3 million visitors, less than the 4.7 million in 2018 and the 5 million projected earlier this year, as a result of Washington’s sanctions, among them the prohibition of the visits by US cruises.
The Government has sought feedback on the Digital Identity bill which is to be debated in parliament. Do you support the introduction of this Bill?
