I truly believe that your hotel stay affects your impression when visiting a place. It also dictates how your trip is going to be like, since most of the time you ask for their recommendations on places to go, see and do. I also always ask for restaurant recommendations. Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski covers everything about your perfect trip. Situated in the heart of Havana where pretty much all the things to you need to see is so close all you have to do is go down from your room and everything is with a touch of your fingertips. I love this hotel so much, it’s probably one of my best stay in Cuba. ( I mean it’s the only place to be at). They have amazing amenities where I spend most of my time in between exploring and soaking up the sun in their rooftop pool. I was also spoiled with so many gorgeous sunsets that change colours every day. From dreamy pink to orange and last for about 45 minutes.
I also had really good recommendations from their staff about the restaurants I went. I had the best meal in Cuba. For those who told me, I’ll never find good food in Havana I’m dedicating a post for you to check out and be ready to be amazing! Kempinski also caters you with 24 hours Internet which I find a great deal since coming from all-inclusive where they sell you $1 or $2 internet card for an hour. The connection is amazing and super reliable. The rooms are high ceiling and beautiful. The bed is so inviting so make sure to not spend your day inside as you’ll get so tempted to stay in and just watch movies! There’s so many to explore within Kempinski area. They also have shops in the hotel where you could pretty much shop to your heart’s desire.
We stayed in the beautiful Patio Room facing the courtyard with its stunning high ceiling making the room spacious and airy. I love it’s elegant and contemporary interior.
I also got to try the spa and I’m truly in awe how stunning and complete is the Spa amenities. I would recommend booking a spa appointment after a long day of walking and being in the scorching Cuban heat outside. It will make you ready for more adventure the next day.
I couldn’t recommend more this stunning property. It truly changed the way I see Havana, Cuba. It made all my worries and inhibitions away about the city. I had the most amazing time and I can’t wait to be back for more.
