Royalton Luxury Resorts has added another Caribbean property to its portfolio with the official opening of the Royalton Hicacos Varadero Resort & Spa.

Formerly the Royal Hicacos Resort, and winner of the TripAdvisor 2014 Award of Excellence as the No.1 resort in Varadero, Cuba, the property has been rebranded as Royalton Hicacos Varadero Resort & Spa.

Royalton Luxury Resorts acquired the luxury all inclusive resort last year and while operating as the Royal Hicacos Resort, it has undergone extensive renovations and upgrades to meet Royalton brand’s high standards. Antonio Gelabert, the Managing Director of the Royalton Resorts Cuba division stated:

"We are thrilled to be able to offer the two most sought after adults only, all inclusive properties in Cuba. We have no doubt that the new Royalton Hicacos Varadero Resort & Spa will continue to exceed our guests' expectations now that we are able to offer our award-winning All-In Luxury™ experience."

Refurbishments to the property included a new stylish lobby, re-designed beach restaurant, a new Jazz bar, new swimming pool, and beach side Bali beds.

Located just 30 minutes from Varadero's International Airport (VRA), the luxury beachfront resort currently has 404 suites including Split Level Junior Suites with king-size beds, daily restocked mini-bars, spacious balconies, and separate living rooms.

Facilities at the resort include three freshwater swimming pools including the main pool with a swim-up bar, three tennis courts, a mini basketball court, pool tables, squash courts, table tennis and a games room, and five gourmet restaurants, and stylish bars.

Blue Diamond, a Canadian hospitality company, currently operates one other Royalton-branded hotel in Cuba; the Royalton Cayo Santa Maria, which has been ranked as the number one hotel in Cuba and the Caribbean by TripAdvisor.

The hotel group also has six hotels in Cuba under its Memories brand, which caters for families and offers a number of leisure facilities that are also open to the general public.

Varadero is a coastal resort located in the province of Matanzas on the Hicacos Peninsula on the north coast of the Caribbean island. The region is one of the most popular destinations for beach holidays in the Caribbean and it is home to more than 20km of pristine white sand beaches and a collection of upscale beachfront hotels and resorts.
