Sandals Resorts International will manage the brand new five-star Princesa Del Mar hotel in Varadero, Cuba, bringing to three the number of resorts now being run by the all-inclusive chain in that Caribbean island.
The 434-suite hotel came under Sandals management on November 1, 2004 after Sandals and Gaviota, one of Cuba's largest and well-respected hotel companies, signed the management contract.
"We are excited about this new development," said Sandals director Dr Jeffrey Pyne. "Our travel partners, particularly in Europe, the UK and Canada, have given tremendous support to our business in Cuba and we are thrilled to be able to include such a spectacular resort in our Cuban operations. We are looking forward with great enthusiasm to welcoming our guests to this special world-class facility."....
