The Coral Level will offer an elevated experience at Iberostar Selection Esmeralda.

Located on Cayo Cruz, a small island in the eastern part of the “Jardines del Rey” (King’s Gardens), the grand opening of Iberostar Selection Esmeralda is set to be one of Cuba’s biggest property launches in 2020.

Expected to open its doors in MAR, the third resort on the secluded island of Cayo Cruz says it will offer a world-class experience. The hotel will be managed by Iberostar Hotels & Resorts as part of the Gaviota portfolio.

The structure and design of the newest Iberostar property takes inspiration from 19th century Cuba, harkening back to the coffee plantations and typical mansions of that time.

There will be 450 rooms in the main portion of the property, while the upgraded Coral Level section will offer another 120 accommodations.
