Meliá Hotels International Cuba is looking at remote work as an area that fits into its strategy as it caters to the new needs of the travel market amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
To that end, Meliá Cuba is working with the authorities of the island's Ministry of Tourism and stakeholders, in a proposal for a new accommodation regime that encourages travellers to work remotely from Cuba.
Remote work can be carried out from anywhere in the world and Cuba is an ideal destination for it. Especially, for the levels of health safety it can provide to travellers.
The country has managed the current pandemic in an exemplary way, a condition recognized worldwide that endorses it as a safe destination in the region.
This combination of factors provides an opportunity and advantage for travellers from Canada who can apply for Visas to remain in the island up to six months.
On the other hand, Meliá Hotels International Cuba has important resources and infrastructure to start operating with this new segment.
It has facilities in both city hotels and leisure destinations, that offer technological benefits, adjustable room types for long stays and complementary customer services.
In addition, the company has already implemented its new safety and hygiene protocols through the global Stay Safe with Meliá program, as well as those provided by the Ministry of Tourism and stakeholders, attaining reference environments for clients and workers in their hotels.
"Cuba and Meliá are the perfect allies to carry out this initiative," said Francisco Camps, Deputy Director General of the Cuba Division. “Our effort, experience, and joint work with tourism institutions in Cuba, will allow us to advance in this new challenge. One more step to continue building together a prosperous and sustainable future for tourism in the island”.
