Luxury Beach Resorts

The luxury beach resorts in Cuba have little trouble attracting guests. This, of course, has a lot to do with their elevated levels of comfort and their abundant amenities. Much of the allure of the Cuba luxury beach resorts is also tied to their locations. Cuba boasts Caribbean beaches that are often mentioned among the very best beaches in the world. Plus, the island nation enjoys warm year round weather, meaning that beach escapes can be enjoyed regardless of the season. A few resort areas combine to offer the majority of Cuba’s luxury beach resorts, so they are the best places to begin your search.

Holguin Beach Resorts

In recent years, the Holguin province has established itself as one of Cuba’s best beach vacation destinations. Found in the southeast region on the main island, the province boasts miles of north coast shoreline that is broken up in parts by small coves. This explains the recent increase in tourism and the development of beach resorts in the outskirts of the region. The Guardalavaca area is a particularly well known beach vacation destination in Holguin. Some even rank it as Cuba’s prettiest resort area. As for the Holguin beach resorts, they are unquestionably some of Cuba’s finest. The more upscale properties tend to be found outside of the original Holguin development area on such beaches as Playa Esmeralda, Playa Turquesa, and Playa Pesquero. Perhaps the most luxurious of these resorts is the Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort & Spa (pictured). A flagship property of the Sol Meliá brand of hotels, the Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort & Spa is set above a low, rocky cliff and overlooks Playa Esmeralda. Guests can access the main beach via stairs that are built into the cliff or venture off to nearby cove beaches when the urge to spend some time on the sand sets in.

Varadero Beach Resorts

The most renowned and popular beach destination in Cuba, Varadero is less than 90 miles east of Havana and occupies the entire length of the Hicacos Peninsula. Stretching along the coast of this peninsula is a nearly continuous broad band of fine white sand that is lined with large resort hotels. The Varadero area has three distinct parts. On the far eastern end is where you will find the quietest Varadero beaches, as well as the most expensive and upscale resorts. Examples of such resorts include the Iberostar Playa Alameda (pictured) and the Paradisus Varadero. At Varadero resorts like these, the service is among the best that you will find anywhere in Cuba, and it is hard to find fault with the well-equipped guests units and impressive mix of activities and facilities. As is common among the Cuba luxury beach resorts and the country’s beach resorts in general, these are all-inclusive properties, so guests have little to worry about once they pay their upfront fees.

Some of the most pristine beaches that you will find in Cuba are located on the island of Cayo Coco. Another island in the same area – Cayo Guillermo – is commonly mentioned in the same breath as Cayo Coco and also entices with its idyllic beaches. You can find these islands off the north-central coast of mainland Cuba in the Jardines del Rey archipelago. Cayo Coco is known for its all-inclusive resorts, the most luxurious of which is the Meliá Cayo Coco (pictured left and at top). Set between a natural coastal lagoon and a pristine beach, this resort offers adults-only solitude in paradise and is understandably popular among honeymooners. Among the many highlights of the Meliá Cayo Coco are its 76 rooms, which are housed in bungalows that are built out over the lagoon. Over on nearby Cayo Guillermo, the Meliá Cayo Guillermo also entices luxury-minded travelers, and the section of beach that it fronts is one of the finest stretches of sand that you will find in the Jardines del Rey region.
