I love following trends. Whether it’s fashion, interior designing or travel, I just love seeing what’s new and has everyone’s jaws wagging. Today I thought I’d do a little sleuthing into what’s hot in travel these days. I am elated to see that eco-tourism is still hot – let’s hear it for making the world a better place through our travel choices.
But today, I wanted to investigate a place I don’t know much about and is one of the hottest tourist destinations around; Havana, Cuba.
As the capital city of Cuba, Havana is full of amazing architecture and a rich cultural heritage. No wonder it’s rapidly becoming the hottest place to visit. Just a short plane ride from Florida, you’ll feel like you stepped back in time. Havana also has some amazing resorts and hotels. The Hotel Saratoga peaked my interest with their stunning rooftop pool with a view of the capital building.
The more I investigated, the more I fell in love with the design of the hotel. The lobby is stunning and the way they weave in a feeling of history and charm with the most luxurious and contemporary furnishings leaves one practically speechless.
I would spend hours at this bar.
Hotel Saratoga has this to say, “The long awaited refurbishment of Hotel Saratoga was finally completed with the hotel opening its doors to guests in December 2005. The Hotel is situated just inside the historical centre of the electric and sensual city of Havana.
The Saratoga was one of Havana’s most stylish establishments of its time. Notorious since the 1930’s as a favorite haunt of artists and socialites from all over the world, for its superb cuisine, the open air entertainments held in its pavement arcade, and the concerts given there by such renowned musicians as the Anacaona Orchestra.
The nowadays Saratoga has been recreated behind the original façade. It combines exquisite style and sense of place as well as state of the art technology. The Saratoga has all the amenities one would wish for in an exclusive city center hotel, including a stunning rooftop pool. The hotel has 96 rooms including 7 suites and various junior suites, and is managed to an international 5-star standard.
The Hotel Saratoga is Old Havana’s grandest hotel, having been carefully designed for especially discerning travelers who wish to combine cultural and historical exploration of the city with enjoyment of its world-famous nightlife.”
