As part of the continued complicity of Canadian companies in supporting the Cuban dictatorship, Blue Diamond Resorts has purchased the operating rights of the most luxurious hotel in Havana, which will be renamed the Royalton Habana, and operations are expected to begin on August 1. of 2022.
This urban hotel with 250 rooms built with the money stolen from the Cuban people by the Castro leadership, will finance the repression of the Cuban people with the help of the Canadian company.
The property, owned by Grupo de Turismo Gaviota, a Cuban military company, will fill the pockets of those who work behind the backs of the Cuban people.
However, with total hypocrisy, the General Director of Blue Diamond Resorts Cuba expressed:
“This new addition to our portfolio is an important milestone for our company and the region,” said Mohamad Fawzi. “Royalton Habana will allow us to evolve in city tourism with a hotel focused on luxury with which we will be able to make our clients live great experiences. We are convinced that it will become a benchmark hotel for both Blue Diamond Resorts Cuba and the region”, he added.
Translating the people of Cuba would be something like, we are going to continue making money, which is what matters to us, despite the repression and the thousands of political prisoners.
Although this hotel will not be the first city hotel managed by Blue Diamond Resorts Cuba, Royalton Habana will be the first city hotel within the Royalton Luxury Resorts portfolio.
Blue Diamond Resorts Cuba is consolidated throughout the Caribbean as the fastest growing hotel chain, now with 36 properties in its portfolio and more than 10,000 rooms. The company has seen considerable growth this year. Just a few weeks ago, Blue Diamond Resorts Cuba announced that it will exclusively manage the tourist region of Cayo Largo del Sur.
In this way, Canadian companies are among those that most support the repression of the Cuban people and the sustenance of the dictatorship. Perhaps all is not lost, many free Cubans have started a campaign to put the Magnitsky Law into practice. Ottawa is aware of this and it is in its hands to do the right thing in terms of supporting the Human Rights of Cubans.
