As part of an expansion plan, Blue Diamond Resorts Cuba has announced that it will take over "the most luxurious hotel in Habana,” which will be rebranded as Royalton Habana and open on Aug. 1, 2022.

This 250-room city hotel promises both a “privileged location and stunning views,” according to a news release issued Monday (July 18).  

Nestled in the entrance to the country’s capital, Royalton Habana, with a modern look, will offer city views, three restaurants and bars, and a rooftop infinity pool that faces the Habana Bay and the San Salvador de la Punta Castle, one of the three key forts in Habana.

The property, owned by Grupo de Turismo Gaviota, will offer exclusive features that will make this hotel the ideal place for all types of discerning travellers.

“This new addition to our portfolio is a major milestone to our company and the region,” said Mohamad Fawzi, managing director for Blue Diamond Resorts Cuba. “Royalton Habana will allow us to evolve in city tourism with a hotel focused on luxury with which we will be able to make our clients enjoy great experiences. We are convinced that it will become a benchmark hotel for both Blue Diamond Resorts Cuba and the region.”

Although this hotel will not be the first city hotel managed by Blue Diamond Resorts Cuba, Royalton Habana will be the first city hotel within the Royalton Luxury Resorts portfolio.

It adds to Blue Diamond’s growing Cuba portfolio – a few weeks ago, the hotel management company owned by Sunwing Travel Group announced that it will exclusively manage all the hotels in Cayo Largo, a small island off of Cuba’s southern coast.
