Ever since the Obama administration loosened restrictions when it came to Cuba, the Caribbean island has become the hottest (quite literally) place to travel. Of course, the freedoms were short-lived, now that Donald Trump has reinstated some limits. But all is not lost - just yet. You can still explore the streets of Havana with special tour groups, and if you make it there, this new hotel is the place to be. Enter the new Kempinski outpost, located in the heart of Old Havana. The Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana is the first new five-star destination to open in the country in decades, and it sure has made its mark.
Housed within the historic Manzana de Gómez building, the luxury hotel boasts 246 rooms, three bars (including a tobacco lounge), three restaurants, a rooftop pool, and sweeping views of the stunning city. Big spenders can opt for the Junior Suite Hemingway, or the Suite Presidential Lorca, then of course book a service in the 10,000-square-foot spa.
