Iberostar TO TAKE OVER MANAGEMENT OF HAVANA’S LANDMARK HOTEL RIVIERA
In January 2017 Iberostar will be taking over management of the landmark HOTEL RIVIERA - its twelfth establishment in Cuba and second in Havana. On completion of the renovation work, the hotel will acquire 5* status and offer all the facilities and services associated with the company’s Premium Gold category.
Standing on the Cuban capital’s famous Malecón seafront esplanade and built in the style of the period in which it first opened, back in 1957, the HOTEL RIVIERA will shortly be immersed in an ambitious integral renovation project. When finished, the hotel will boast 352 fully refurnished rooms. The project also includes work on the communal areas, and will bring the range of products and services available at the hotel in line with the company’s standards. The hotel facilities will also include the legendary Cabaret Copa Room, a large venue for shows and live music and one of Havana’s classic night spots.
The new hotel will be a key milestone in Iberostar’s trajectory and further proof of its commitment to Cuba as a key destination in the hotel chain’s portfolio.
Enric Noguer, CEO America at GRUPO Iberostar stated: “For us, this hotel is a major step forward as it allows for the qualitative consolidation of our presence in Havana through the incorporation of a hotel that historically has enjoyed an outstanding reputation. Cuba is a tremendously important destination for Iberostar and a crucial part of our expansion strategy, and we will therefore remain committed to our objective of offering top quality and highly competitive accommodation options in this country”.
The future Iberostar Riviera is therefore set to become the chain’s second hotel in Havana, joining the Iberostar Parque Central. Iberostar Hotels & Resorts currently has another eleven hotels in Cuba. 2017 will also see the addition of a thirteenth hotel to its Cuban portfolio, the Iberostar Bella Vista Varadero, a 5 star establishment in Varadero with 827 rooms.
