The 5 star hotel is said to have 624 rooms and is located on the west coast of the famous Jardines del Rey Island. Above is the only rendering released thus far and it appears to show a suit with a private pool. The naming of the hotel follows Melia’s evident force in Cuba, in which the Cuban tourism ministry allows this immensely powerful hotel chain to utilize geographic names for its Hotels. This began with the Melia Varadero in the 1990s and has extended right through the companies impressive 27 hotels in Cuba.
The new Melia Jardines del Rey hotel will feature a spa, tennis courts, fitness gym, Spa & Wellness center and, both salt and freshwater pools. The property is to have a large shopping complex annex, similar to the Pueblo Las Dunas in Cayo Santa Maria. The marketing teams at Melia Cuba have seen incremental growth in reservations when visitors to their shopping centers get a sneak peek at their associated hotel, a wise strategy for clawing reservations from other hotel chains in the same vicinity. The new Melia Jardines del Rey Hotel will follow this trend with over 30 shops and 4 (payable) restaurants in the shopping mall.
Guests at Melia Jardines del Rey will also benefit from up to 2 free daytime resort passes to allow guests to visit the chains Cayo Guillermo based hotels and sample restaurants, beaches and services on this neighboring island. This resort pass system was started by Melia Cuba in 2003 and has since been copied by most major chains operating in Cuba’s glorious “Cayo” destinations.
