Melia Just Opened a New Hotel in Havana, Cuba 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - December 1, 2023

Spanish hotel giant has added another new hotel in the heart of Cuba’s capital of Havana: the new Sevilla Habana Affiliated by Melia Hotel. 

The new hotel, with a rooftop lounge and a pool, is set in the heart of Old Havana, overlooking the city’s famous Malecon waterfront boulevard. 

It’s the first Affiliated by Melia Hotel to open in the Caribbean. Affiliated, a new Melia brand, is a collection of “hotels with contemporary design and an authentic connection to local culture,” akin to something like Hilton’s Curio Collection or Hyatt’s Independent Collection. 

Inside the lobby of the hotel.

The Sevilla Habana is just the sixth Affiliated by Melia to open its doors worldwide. 

The property has 178 rooms, along with a pair of eateries, three bar-lounges and a meeting space. 

Melia has been on a rapid expansion push in Cuba since the pandemic; over the summer, the company also opened a 50-room hotel in Havana, the INNSiDE Habana Catedral hotel. 

Next year, the company will debut another property in the capital, the reimagined Hotel Plaza, with 188 rooms.
