Banyan Tree Takes On Cuba with 4 Hotels

Category: Hotels, Posted:24 Dec 2016 | 11:30 am

Singapore’s Banyan Tree Group is moving quickly  into one of the world’s most looked-at emerging market’s Cuba.

News from Skift has reported the Dhawa Cayo Santia Maria Cuba is set to debut today.

Aside from the Dhawa, the pipeline includes two Angsana properties, a Banyan Tree and a second Dhawa.

One interesting fact from the news piece is how Wi-Fi is generally not available in guest rooms in Cebu, but the newly opened property will be a pioneering offering.

Banyan Tree has been able to get an early start into Cuba given it was not hampered by U.S. sanctions which constrained other global American chains, though this has now changed.

One of the key connections has been an initiative by the Singapore government in connecting local  groups to new opportunities in a fast changing landscape in Cuba.
