Greetings from Cuba Private Travel in Havana,


What’s new in Cuba?

The Maldives in the Caribbean

Kempinski cracked it with their flagship Havana Hotel and are now taking aim at the beach with this stunning property. Overwater Villas and the most divine beach in the Northern Cayos.

Latest Private Accommodation

Though a handful of good hotels have recently opened in Havana, since the gentle flourishing of the private sector since 2008, there are really interesting private rentals which can parachute you more into the fabric of Cuban life, and nowadays can provide great taste and a certain level of luxury.

Havana’s best retreats

Choose a chateau-style a folly built by a Spanish count in the 1930s, a suburban dream home with a lush garden and pool, with art commissioned by a top curator; a meticulously transformed colonial house transformed into a next-generation guesthouse or a private boutique hotel with Carrara marble-encrusted walls.

Classy wine Bar

Costa Vino, this airy wine bar stocks great Italian and Spanish wines and serves top-notch seafood including the coveted wild angullas from Baracoa.

The Artsy Cool Bar

Jesus Maria 20, a new, funky hangout in San Isidro, an up and coming barrio. My favourite best-kept secret. The place is a cross between bar, paladar and art gallery, with an amazing roof terrace, cool atmosphere and amazing cocktails.

It’s all about the art

Estudio 50, new large warehouse space and home to young up and coming artists and musicians. They host cool events, parties, and concerts. Reminiscent of the early days of the FAC. Check with your concierge to get on the list.


Buen viaje…
