The Canadian company Blue Diamond Resorts will manage the oldest hotel in Cuba

Hotel-Inglaterra-The Canadian company Blue Diamond Resorts reported this Saturday that it will expand its presence in Cuba and will manage the Hotel Inglaterra, the oldest in the largest of the Antilles, located in Havana.

As of November, Blue Diamond will begin to manage this facility, located a few meters from the National Capitol, the Alicia Alonso Grand Theater of Havana and the Paseo del Prado.

The Director of Communication of Blue Diamond in Cuba, Miguel García, showed his satisfaction for the task this Saturday. In this regard, he commented that the Inglaterra was inaugurated on December 23, 1875, and welcomed important guests on its way, such as the actresses Sarah Bernhardt and María Félix, the dancer Anna Pavlova, the poets Rubén Darío and Julián del Casal, or the singers Enrico Caruso, Argentine Empire and José Mujica.

The playwrights Federico García Lorca and Jacinto Benavente, the athletes José Raúl Capablanca (famous Cuban chess player), the British politician Winston Churchill and the bullfighter Luis Mazzantini also stayed at that establishment.

Its famous Acera del Louvre has been transformed over the decades into the ideal place to observe the hustle and bustle of this Havana area, while enjoying a cocktail to the beat of Cuban music. Due to its architectural, cultural and historical values, it is classified as a National Monument of Cuba.

García also recalled that the hotel company has been managing the Royalton Habana Paseo del Prado hotel since this month, and by September -after a capital repair process- the Regis will also begin operating, under the Mystique brand, aimed at the Adults Only segment.

He also referred to the resort of Cayo Largo, where Blue Diamond will exclusively operate several hotels and villas owned by the Cuban group Gran Caribe, as well as the network of shops and gastronomic services.

On October 31, Cayo Largo will receive the first international flight after the COVID-19 restrictions, with passengers from Italy.

With marked growth in products and services in recent years, Blue Diamond also has accommodations in Varadero, Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo, Cayo Santa María, Jibacoa and Trinidad.
