The all-new resort hotel in Cayo Guillermo, approximately 500 kilometres east of Havana, will offer guests an experience of exclusivity and privacy away from the hustle and bustle of Cuba’s capital city. 

The non-all-inclusive resort hotel was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s legacy and love for the Cayo, reimagined for the contemporary traveller.

The resort will be built like the bow of a boat advancing into the Atlantic Ocean. Surrounded by a breathtaking natural landscape and extensive gardens, it will offer 245 rooms and suites

These will include six over-water villas with stunning panoramic views and a minimum size of at least 75 sq. m. each, plus a 200 sq. m. over-water presidential suite, all of which will have private pools. The majority of the standard guest rooms will also boast unobstructed sea views, while the famous white sand beach of Playa Pilar will be directly adjacent to the resort.

The accommodations include:

245 Rooms and Suites:

  • Deluxe Room
