Melia Hotels International Cuba is considering new strategies to introduce proposals to the market aimed at meeting the new needs of important segments of the public.
One of these emerging areas is, without a doubt, the modality of Distance Work, which has already modified employment patterns on an international scale, due to the new coronavirus.
To this end, Melia Cuba works with the authorities of the Cuban Ministry of Tourism and the owners of the hotels in a proposal for a new accommodation regime, which is based on encouraging travels and stays to carry out tasks of this nature from Cuba.
Distance work can be carried out from anywhere in the world and Cuba is an ideal destination for it, above all, due to the health security it can provide to the client.
The country has also managed the pandemic in an exemplary way, a circumstance recognized internationally and that endorses it as a safer destination at the regional level.
Canada has an added advantage, as Cuba´s main tourist partner, whose citizens can already receive a visa for stays of up to 6 months.
On the other hand, Melia Hotels International Cuba has important resources and infrastructure to start operating with this new segment. Both in urban hotels and in holiday destinations, there are establishments that offer numerous facilities with excellent technological features, types of rooms adjustable for long stays and complementary services.
In addition, the company has already put its new safety and hygiene protocols into practice through the global program Stay Safe with Melia, as well as those provided by MINTUR and the hotel owners, achieving reference environments for clients and workers in their accommodations.
"Cuba and Melia are the perfect allies to carry out this initiative," said Francisco Camps, Deputy Director General of the Cuba Division. “Our effort and experience, and the joint work with the tourism institutions in Cuba, will allow us to advance in this new challenge. One more step to continue building together a prosperous and sustainable future for tourism on the island,”he added.
