A prime city location, thriving entertainment and a variety of gourmet experiences combine to make the 5-star Melia Cohiba a fantastic destination for families, couples and friends eager to get the most out of this vibrant city. Melia Cohiba is in the heart of all the Havana action, with the upmarket area of Miramar on one side and the historical side of the city on the other. The hotel’s modern building towers over the surrounding sights, with a chic and sophisticated lobby welcoming guests into an oasis of calm. High-end facilities at Melia Cohiba include everything from an outdoor pool to a nightclub, fitness centre and six on-site restaurants serving a range of international cuisine.
Found in the urban neighbourhood of El Vedado, Melia Cohiba is well situated for those travelling for business or pleasure. Part of the Malecon, a seawall which stretches along Havana’s coast for 8km, is located just a one-minute walk away, and is the ideal place for locals and tourists to enjoy watching the sunset with a tipple in hand. Follow the seawall along and you’ll find yourself in the heart of the city’s Chinatown and Old Havana districts where many of the city’s most famous sights - such as the Museum of the Revolution and National Capitol Building - can be found. Don’t fancy walking in the heat? Classic American cars can be found dotted around the city and near hotels, whisking you away to attractions around the city. Be sure to also make a visit to Playas del Este, a fabulous stretch of white-sand beach just outside Havana.
Melia Cohiba boasts an incredible 462 guest rooms, each offering panoramic views across the city or the sea. There are seven varieties of rooms, each containing amenities such as a minibar, espresso maker and en suite facilities. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also provided in each room. Classic rooms are traditionally styled and kitted out with a flat screen TV and a separate seating area, Junior Suites come with a hydromassage bathtub, while Grand Suite Rooms feature a separate lounge. Guests can also opt to upgrade to The Level Rooms which boast stylish contemporary decor and exclusive extras such as access to the private reception-lounge on the 20th floor.
