Melia Opens New All-Inclusive in Cuba

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - February 23, 2019

The largest hotel company in Cuba has added another major new all-inclusive to its portfolio: the Melia Internacional in Cuba’s tourism hub of Varadero.

It’s a decidedly modern, innovative resort, immediately becoming perhaps the most striking design in Varadero.

That’s part of the plan for the 11-story property, which is a new level of luxury all-inclusive for Cuba — increasingly a haven for luxury development.

And it’s, unsurprisingly, a massive resort: there are 946 rooms and suites, from “classic” pool view rooms to the premier accommodations at the resort, the Level Penthouse Suite.

The new property, which also includes Melia’s premium Level and Level Adults-Only wings, has Melia’s signature broad range of amenities, from two buffet eateries to 16 bars to six themed eateries to a full-fledged convention center. (Three of those bars are for adults only).

Those amenities also include, perhaps most notably, free Wi-Fi, a serious plus in Cuba.

But the biggest amenity remains its perch on the world-famous Varadero beach, Cuba’s wide, white stretch of sand.

Varadero Beach.

That’s along with two main pools, a special Level-only pool, a kids’ pool and a splash pool, along with a pool at the property’s YHI Spa.

Level rooms come with an exclusive reception on an elevated floor; a VIP bar, three complimentary rounds of golf and 24-hour room service, among other features.

There are six themed eateries.

Melia now operates 34 resorts in Cuba across four brands: Melia, Sol, Paradisus and Tryp.

The new Melia Internacional is one of 11 Melia properties in the Varadero alone.
