Paradisus Princesa del Mar Resort & Spa, Varadero

Obviously when you’re planning your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Cuba you cannot miss out on the sizzling nightlife, the faded colonial charm and the full-on cultural experience that is Havana.

But if you’re a sun and sea lover – or even a connoisseur of great resort-style holidays – you should also factor in some quality beach time. When it comes to white sand stretching off to the horizon, a warmly welcoming turquoise sea and the fun opportunities of three swimming pools, eight restaurants and 10 bars – Paradisus Princesa del Mar is virtually unrivalled in Cuba. Especially when you add catamaran cruising, yacht sailing, beach volleyball, cycling and tennis into the mix. Not to mention after sunset entertainment that includes the restaurants and buzzing bars, plus the Captain Morgan night club.
