Luxury Travel

From new and exclusive boutique casas, to delectable fusion-style delicacies in new hidden away private restaurants, Cuba has certainly changed in recent years. These days, discerning well-travelled guests are genuinely impressed with the quality available and are enjoying upmarket Cuba for themselves.

Our specialist team offer a personalised service right through from your initial enquiry, to you homeward journey and will help you seek out the best luxury available, including authentic private experiences, and pre-booked reservations at the best hidden-away private restaurants.

We hand-pick our properties and itineraries that offer you the ultimate experience in Cuban travel. Whether it’s airport fast track, your personal local contact and driver, or a dedicated personalised service from start to finish, our concierge team can tailor our service to suit your requirements.

For those keen to tour, but prefer privacy rather than travelling in a group, our selection of hand-crafted escorted tours can be created privately on any day of the week. You will be accompanied throughout by a knowledgeable English-speaking guide and why not extend your tour with a beach stay in Cuba, Mexico or beyond or a few nights in Havana.

Pre-booked Private Restaurants

Formerly known as ‘paladars’, Cuba’s privately owned restaurants, are highly recommended and undoubtedly offer the best food. These sought after eateries range from hip to elegant, offer varying cuisines, creative menus, have passionate owners, and are great for foodies. If you’re not in the know, eating out at mediocre restaurants in Cuba is easy to do. They get booked up well in advance, so we recommend our restaurant pre-booking service before travel. Talk to our team for reservations at our favourite recommendations.
