Melia Buenavista, Cayo Santa Maria

Specify Melia Buenavista as a destination on the itinerary of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Cuba and you’ll find you not only cast yourself adrift from the hurly burly of everyday life, you also distance yourself from everyone’s children. Not only does this five star hotel have an idyllic setting on the picture book desert island of Cayo Santa Maria, it also has an over-18 only policy.

So bask on the immaculate beach, or beside the curvaceous, palm fringed pool undisturbed. Listen to your own music on your iPod. Catch up on your reading in peace, whilst collecting your tan. Eat food designed for sophisticated palates. Be pampered by the resort’s meticulous ‘All Royal’ service. And come to appreciate the true meaning of the phrase ‘splendid, peaceful isolation’.
