European-style comfort: first Kempinski hotel in Cuba

Ahlen, May 2018. – Havana is a top travel destination and its no wonder, given this Caribbean metropolis’s unique charm: colourful vintage cars wherever you look, magnificent buildings from days gone by, lively cafes and street musicians on virtually every corner. The old town is particularly full of life and was already declared a UNESCO world heritage site in the 1980s. Right in the heart of this bustling city is the Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana. This is the luxury hotel group’s first 5-star property anywhere in the American market. When furnishing the hotel, great attention was paid to luxurious details and this extends equally to the spacious bathrooms. After a long day in the vibrant capital, hotel guests can unwind in comfortable bathtubs made of KALDEWEI steel enamel.

The hotel building – the Manzana de Gómez – was once the first European-style department store in Cuba. With the arrival of the luxury hotel, the building’s fame and past glory is restored and guests are treated to an exceptional degree of comfort. The 246 rooms and suites, furnished in modern style, have extra high ceilings and some feature floor-to-ceiling French doors so that guests can enjoy  breathtaking views across the historical city centre.

Exclusive bathing experience with KALDEWEI bathroom solutions
In the bathrooms, the premium bathroom manufacturer KALDEWEI rounds off the exclusive furnishings with its high-end bathroom solutions: the Classic Duo Oval and Classic Duo Oval Wide bathtubs, created by the illustrious Milan design studio, Sottsass Associati. Both models impress with their unfussy elegance, balanced lines and their superb material – KALDEWEI steel enamel.
