Cienfuegos Unveils Latest E-hotel To Open Offering Cultural Cuba Holidays In Bay Of Jagua


Offering the perfect mix of seaside recreation and cultural charm, the historical city of Cienfuegos has recently welcomed a new addition to its collection of colonial hotels in the Bay of Jagua.

The fully renovated Perla del Mar hotel joins the portfolio of E-Hotels (Hoteles Encanto) in Cubas colonial city of Cienfuegos. The E-hotels brand comprises a selection of restored properties of historical value that after renovation works have been converted into charming accommodation options for history-loving tourists in search of a more authentic place to stay, with a bit of added history to perfectly complement culturally-enriching Cuba holidays.

The hotel was inaugurated at the end of last month with the presence of the Gran Caribe Hotel Groups president, Eduardo Acosta and the newly opened establishment became the fourth Encanto hotel in the Punta Gorda complex, which comprises another four sister properties of equal historical value and old age charm. These sister hotels include the Jagua, Casa Verde and Palacio del Valle, the latter of which was the first E-hotel to open in Cuba and marked the starting point for extending the Encanto brand and restoring more old Cuba hotels to their former glory.

The motivation behind the opening of these peculiarly charming hotels in Cuba was not only to rescue and give use to crumbling buildings of historical importance that had been abandoned throughout the years but also to meet an increasing demand and growing interest from tourists to stay in unique accommodation that reflected Cubas captivating colonial past, much of which is still present in the architecture of old villages and sleepy towns like the residential neighbourhood of Punta Gorda, where the new Encanto Perla del Mar is located.

The investment in the restoration of the new property, part of which overlooks the sea and the beautiful Bay of Jagua, totalled 1.4 million U.S. dollars and a further restoration project is in the pipeline for another hotel in city which will be named San Carlos. Work for the new San Carlos hotel will start in 2013 with an expected date of completion in 2012 while existing projects are also to be enhanced in the area.

Perfectly catering to the growing interest for cultural holidays in Cuba, the new property adds value to the new accommodation in this city with fully renovated guest rooms and facilities.

Backpacking Europe Alone Tips On Meeting Other Travelers


If you’ve decided to go backpacking in Europe alone, you’re probably a little nervous or curious about how you are going to meet other travelers. Backpacking in Europe alone can be a liberating and exciting experience but it can also get lonely if you don’t try to put yourself out there a little bit. When planning your backpacking Europe itinerary, make sure you spend a decent amount of time in each city you visit so you have time to take organized tours and hang out in the hostels you stay in so you can get to know other travelers.
Hostels: The Lone Traveler’s Lifeline
The great thing about backpacking Europe alone is that there are many other travelers doing the same thing and it is easy to meet them at the hostels you stay in. Backpacker’s hostels are a great way to meet other people because there are communal rooms, kitchens, and dorms so you are constantly in contact with other travelers. On the other hand, staying in hotels as a lone traveler can make for a lonely trip because you will always be cooped up in your room alone when you are done with the day’s activities. Staying in a hostel is fun because you can cook with your hostel mates and chat with them in the communal area or dorm.
When backpacking Europe alone, you can meet other travelers by taking part in the tours organized at the hostel. Many hostels in Europe organize free walking tours of the city. These tours are a great chance for you to have fun and interact with the hostel staff and guests. You can also sign up for organized tours arranged by travel agencies in order to meet fellow travelers. In addition, hostels often organize social events such as pub crawls and BBQs. Don’t be afraid to join in!
Backpacking in Europe alone may seem intimidating initially but it really isn’t once you get used to starting conversations with fellow hostel guests. Remember that a lot of the people staying at the hostel are probably in the same boat and feeling just as nervous as you are. The only way you are going to start meeting people and having a memorable trip is by chatting up your fellow hostel-goers.
Make no mistake about it. Backpacking in Europe alone can be just as fun as backpacking with your friends. You’ll meet plenty of people on the road as long as you get up the guts to make conversation with the people you meet along the way. Don’t forget to participate in organized activities. Buying a bottle of wine and starting a little party of your own is another great way to get to know your hostel mates. The moral of this story is: be open to meeting new people and they will be open to meeting you!

Hostile Takeover At Popular Luxury Hotel For Beach Miami Holidays


One of the most sought after Miami hotels- the Setai South Beach has recently undergone an unusual management shake-up. The hotel, owned by Setai Owners LLC (a unit of Lehman Brothers) was managed by Singapore based firm General Hotel Management (GHM) until a hostile takeover on 31st March 2012 which saw GMH replaced by Trevi Luxury Hospitality Group a firm which specialises in luxury hotels and resorts.

GMH was ousted in a dramatic style, reminiscent of a something straight out of a film, with owners of the Setai South Beach arriving with armed guards at 2:30 am announcing the management change.

According to a press release from GMH, Representatives from Lehman Brothers arrived at the hotel with armed guards and off duty sheriff officers in uniform in the early morning hours on March 31st. They informed us that they were taking over the property and that General Hotel Management (GHM) was no longer welcome on the property. These actions took us by surprise, as we had no prior indication they were intending to do this, nor were we under the impression that they were unhappy with our performance. We had just achieved the second best financial performance year since the inception of the hotel, not an easy accomplishment in the current economic environment

The luxurious hotel has proven to be one of the most popular with travellers spending Miami holidays in South Beach. The Setai is currently ranked 14 out of 204 Miami Beach hotels on popular travel review website TripAdvisor. However, based on the information gathered following a request for arbitration at the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris, Lehman Brothers claim that under the GMHs inefficient management the hotel was not as profitable at it should be claiming that GMH squandered $7.6 million in incremental profit.

The Setai South Beach boasts three swimming pools, a spa- perfect for unwinding after the shopping sprees that most travellers relish when booking holidays in Miami, guests can also enjoy a wide range of dining facilities as well as the picturesque landscaping echoing the serene minimalist Asian-inspired motif woven throughout the hotels decor.

A single nights stay at this lavish hotel in Miamis trendy South Beach can cost anywhere upwards of $725 USD. Given all that the hotel has to offer there is no doubt that despite the peculiar circumstances under which management changed hands, guests will continue to enjoy first class accommodation during their Miami holidays. Vice president of Lehman Brothers Holdings, Anthony Barsanti expressed optimism stating, We believe that under the right management, this property has limitless potential.

Find Cheap Travel Trailers Right Around The Corner At Rv Repo Auctions


In the current difficult economic times, it is becoming increasingly attractive for RVers to find cheap travel trailers. If you’ve been dreaming of hitting the open road, a used travel trailer is the best way to go. How much money you will need in your budget depends greatly on where you purchase.

Buying directly from an owner through a classified ad is the most common route for potential travel trailer seekers. While you are likely to find one in a reasonable condition, you are unlikely to be getting a cheap deal. Most owners are selling to pay off their financial obligations or are trying to get as much extra cash as possible.

In today’s modern society, we have the superb resource of the internet that can provide us with almost any information that we require. Finding cheap travel trailers is no exception. If you would still like to pursue the purchase from an owner, you could search Craigslist or do a Google search for any private websites that are selling a travel trailer in your area.

Another option worth considering is an online auction or a public auction in your near vicinity. The easiest way to find RV repo auctions is joining a website that actively searches out auctions, and collects and categorizes them for you. You may be surprised at how many auctions are held right there in your city. The website can give you details of when and where the auction will take place, and the type of items to be sold.

This will be your best source to find cheap travel trailers. Vehicles/trailers have incredibly low prices, simply to ensure that they are sold on the day of the auction. They are most likely repossessed from owners who have defaulted on their payments, and need to be sold to make up for the financial loss of the organization and to avoid storage costs.

To ensure that you are getting a good deal for the travel trailer, you should get an idea of it’s actual value by consulting a buying guide. In most cases, you will see that the trailer is being sold at way below the trade-in value.

Remember, with an RV it’s critical to save your money up front on the purchase. Don’t try to recoup at the sale. Thoroughly research all your options and decide which one will get you the best deal on cheap travel trailers. Then, enjoy the trip and the remarkable amount of money you’ve saved.
