In October 2017, Cuba Ventures Corp. announced the commencement of its Hotel & Resort consulting division. Over 4 million tourists visited Cuba in 2017. The country’s hotel & resort infrastructure is in desperate need of extra hotel & resort properties to increase capacities and accommodate the burgeoning tourism arrivals. The arrival of US Hotel giant Starwood in Cuba has clearly paved the way for American hotel chains to enter the Cuban Market. International hotel chains like; Melia, Iberostar, Kempinski, Accor, Mercure, Barcelo, Blau, Blue Diamond, Royalton, H10, NH, Pestana, Riu, Roc, Sercotel, Sirenis, Superclubs, Breezes etc. already manage hotels in Cuba.
Whether it is a new build or updating a historic property, navigating Cuba’s foreign investment laws can be treacherous and tricky. Cuba Ventures Corp management and advisors share over 80 years combined experience dealing with Cuba. Steve Marshall, the company’s CEO spent 11 years within Cuba’s real estate and hotel infrastructure industry. While Cuba Ventures Corp does not currently invest in national infrastructure, we can be a significant ally in locating available properties or land, obtaining approvals and, also providing extensive room marketing and booking support to hotel chains entering the Cuban market.
