The 600-room GRAND ASTON La Habana Hotel has opened in Havana, expanding Southeast Asia-based Archipelago’s Cuban portfolio.

Rising to the Havana Malecón sky, the property is located in the bustling Vedado, the capital's central commercial district, close to offices, shops, restaurants, and entertainment.

Vedado is also near Havana’s nightlife, with nearby clubs like La Zorra y el Cuervo, the Yellow Submarine and the Cabaret Parisien providing entertainment.

GRAND ASTON La Habana takes modern living to the next level, revealing “uniquely designed architecture, fresh rooms, eclectic dining, inspiring event spaces,” and wellness facilities, including the city's only 24-hour fitness centre and a 56-metre long swimming pool overlooking Havana Bay.

With an innovative design, its interior decoration is a perfect fusion between the Havana style of the 1930s and the Asian refinement of GRAND ASTON.

The hotel’s Wellness Center by Spa Ubud offers exotic Asian healing techniques and is the only spa in the city offering massages with authentic Balinese techniques, the hotel says.

GRAND ASTON La Habana is also the first in the capital to house a bank branch (BFI).

"We're delighted to be opening what will become a true icon in the Havana hotel scene. One of the most creatively designed hotels is ready to welcome guests to experience the fusion of Asian and Cuban hospitality in a fantastic location," said John Flood, president and CEO of Archipelago.
