Iberostar Hotels & Resorts welcomed its first guests to Iberostar Laguna Azul on Sunday (April 18), coinciding with the arrival of the first direct flight between Moscow and Varadero after several months without flights between the destinations.
The hotel chain is celebrating this reopening as another milestone in its activity recovery process in Cuba.
The return to normality is a gradual process, and the company currently has five hotels up and running again in Havana, Varadero and Cayo Guillermo.
More specifically, in Varadero, Iberostar has reopened another two hotels: Iberostar Selection Varadero and Iberostar Tainos.
Health & safety
Since resuming operations, the hotel chain has assessed the implementation of the How We Care programme in its hotels very positively.
The same goes for the over 300 safety measures it has rolled out in its hotels with the support of a Medical Advisory Board, which are also in line with the circularity policies it fosters through its pioneering Wave of Change movement.
Guests who wish to take an antigen test or a COVID-19 PCR test (low cost) can ask the hotel’s team for information about the process and cost, and request an appointment for the test.
In many cases, the test can be carried out in the hotel itself by specialized staff, and in some cases in nearby accredited centres.
In the event of a positive test, Iberostar guarantees to take care of its guests through free support services included in all bookings.
These include an extended stay without any additional cost in isolated rooms, including all the necessary care and services, such as entertainment and contact-free room service, among others.
Iberostar continues to reinforce its commitment to protecting the well-being of its guests, employees, and partners by offering worry-free holidays.
