Following the announcement by the Cuban Ministry of Tourism of the gradual reopening of Cuba’s borders Nov. 15, and in response to the stepped-up vaccination process underway in Cuba, the Iberostar Group has an ambitious schedule of re-openings for the coming months to bring its hotels in Cuba back to normal, depending on the reactivation of demand and airlift.
On Nov. 1, Grupo Iberostar plans to reopen Iberostar Grand Packard – its top luxury property on the island — along with the Iberostar Selection Bella Vista Varadero, Iberostar Selection Ensenachos, Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Ensenachos, and Iberostar Daiquiri.
On Dec. 1, Iberostar Bella Costa, in Varadero, and Iberostar Selection Holguín will reopen along with the Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Holguín; on Dec. 22, Iberostar Playa Alameda and Iberostar Heritage Grand Trinidad, which, in addition to the previous ones, will be ready to welcome those who decide to celebrate Christmas in the Greater Antilles. Iberostar Selection Playa Pilar, in Cayo Guillermo, is scheduled to open in January.
These hotels, as well as those that have been operating since late 2020, will open in January — Iberostar Parque Central, Iberostar Selection Varadero, Iberostar Laguna Azul and Iberostar Taínos. Grupo Iberostar provides its guests with a “safe and peaceful stay, thanks to the How We Care program, with more than 300 measures that offer a safe environment, hygiene standards, social distancing and an innovative experience.”
With the resumption of hotel operations in Cuba, Iberostar is reactivating its Havana-Varadero and Havana-Los Cayos package tours, which provide visitors to with a combined urban and sun-and-beach experience on the same trip. In addition, Iberostar allows them to share these experiences on their social networks, with the expansion of Wi-Fi service –free of charge — in all its hotels.
Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Esmeralda: A Higher Experience in Cayo Cruz Iberostar’s reopening calendar also includes the inauguration of Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Esmeralda on Dec. 22, reinforcing the chain’s commitment to quality tourism in Cuba.
The Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Esmeralda belongs to Iberostar’s new Coral Level concept, with which the company offers its guests a higher experience within another hotel.
The Coral Levels are all-inclusive luxury, exclusive getaways located in unique settings overlooking the sea with a reserved area on the beach and rooms with the best conveniences.
In addition, guests at these hotels can also enjoy the facilities of the resorts or hotel in which they are staying. In this case, this Coral Level is nestled in the Iberostar Selection Esmeralda Resort.
The Iberostar Group currently has five Coral Level hotels in its portfolio worldwide, two of them in Cuba (Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Holguín and Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Ensenachos).
