Winter has now fully set in, and grey skies are the norm…everywhere but in sunny Cuba, the largest country in the Caribbean. Winter is the best time to visit this tropical location to soak up some rays and to soak up the local culture.
Havana is Cuba’s capital. It’s a beautiful and historical place to visit and is basically untouched by Americanism, making it a unique destination in the Caribbean.
If you plan on visiting Havana, Kiwi Collection recommends staying at Hotel Saratoga, found in the heart of the old part of the city on one of the busiest streets. It’s the best way to see Cuba in style.
It’s close to all of the city’s historical and cultural sites, as well as to the best restaurants and nightlife Cuba has to offer. And, of course, let’s not forget that this luxury Cuban hotel lets visitors explore Cuba with all the comforts of home (a rare commodity for sure).
With 96 rooms, the Saratoga is a fairly large hotel with plenty of variety for luxury travelers. With high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows and balconies with wrought iron railings, guests get true Cuban charm with a luxurious twist. The design of the suites — and even the façade of the building — is best described as old meets new. The hotel itself has been rebuilt, but has maintained part of the façade of the old exterior, maintaining its historical appeal.
The restaurants at the Saratoga Hotel Havana provide a stylish dining environment and stunning views of the city. The Anacaona Restaurant is a great spot to dine if you’re looking for both Cuban and international cuisine. If it’s good food and a good view that you’re itching for, check out the Bar Restaurant Mirador Saratoga on the top floor.
And no trip to Cuba is complete without sampling some incredible Cuban cocktails. Check out the Anacaona Wine and Tapa Bar’s mojitos for a truly Cuban experience.
After dinner, you can also visit the Hotel’s luxury spa for some well-deserved R&R after an eventful day of sightseeing and exploring this beautiful country.
The Saratoga Hotel is definitely one of the best hotels in Cuba for exploring the historical city of Havana.
