Cayo Guillermo Resort Kempinski luxury in Cuba
Kempinski can add a new luxury signing in Cuba to their long list of enviable properties. The Cayo Guillermo Resort Kempinski follows up on the group’s success in the Cuban capital with the Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana, and can lay claim to being Cuba’s first luxury resort hotel.
Currently under construction and slated to be open before the end of the year, this new luxurious property is located 500 kilometres east of Havana and offers guests an idyllic escape inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s time in Cuba.
The 254-key property boasts rooms and suites, as well as six private, over-water villas that benefit from their own private pools.
The resort promises guests a “barefoot luxury” experience, and the gastronomic venues will serve up fresh-caught local fish and seafood.
“After having successfully introduced our city hotel Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana almost two years ago, we will complement our offer and will soon provide exclusive luxury in a beach resort, Cayo Guillermo Resort Kempinski,” said Carlos Miguel Latuff Carmenate, Executive President of Grupo de Turismo Gaviota, with whom Kempinski has signed the management contract for the hotel.
“We are delighted to be able to partner again with Kempinski Hotels. Renowned for its expertise in managing resorts and hotels throughout the world, the luxury hotelier will continue to bring individuality and European refinement to Cuba.”
Partnering with m2 at Mtatsminda LLC in Tbilisi
Kempinski has signed a management agreement with m2 at Mtatsminda LLC to develop a luxury property in Tbilisi, Georgia.
The 95-key property is slated to open towards the end of 2020 and is to be at the foot of Mount Mtazminda, a historic and fabled part of this ancient and fascinating country.
The hotel will house generous guest rooms of 40 sqm, as well as gastronomic and viticultural experiences. Guests will be able to sample Georgian wines and experience some of the best culinary offerings in the country.
Given its setting, visitors will also be treated to panoramic views of the mountains surrounding Tbilisi, which can be enjoyed from the hotel’s rooftop terrace or the suites’ private balconies.
“We are extremely pleased to partner with Kempinski Hotels for this impressive luxury project. Kempinski is world-renowned for its expertise in managing premium residences and hotels. Together we will take the luxury experience in Tbilisi to new levels,” said Irakli Burdiladze, Chief Executive Officer of JSC m2 Real Estate.
“Our approach will see this property not only attracting guests from Georgia’s closely located Eurasian or neighbouring countries such as Turkey or Russia – markets where Kempinski Hotels already has a strong brand reputation – but also for global visitors who are looking to be delighted by the city. In this respect, we are proud to be able to support Tbilisi’s efforts to establish the city as a real leisure destination with a focus on heritage sights, gastronomy and culture.
