Cuba Absolutely Review
The 14-room boutique Terral is the first Habaguanex hotel on the Malecon (Havana’s seafront) drive. Named after the night land breeze (Terral) this is an urban hotel with modern, avant-garde design.
The decoration of the building has been executed by a group of Cuban artisans who have used black wood as the primary and prevailing element. The spaces have been recreated with nature and motion motifs, lightboxes with images of mangroves and river beds. The fish shaped lamps make the lobby a singularly attractive place.
It has 14 rooms: 12 standard rooms decorated with photos and colours of sea bottoms, and 2 junior suites on the top floor. The exclusivity of its private terraces and the theme of the rooms with the colors and images of flora and fauna add to the distinction of the place. Minimalist yet elegant, the Terral Hotel rises as a window on the Caribbean Sea and a mandatory stop on the city’s Malecón.
The Terral, the most recent Habaguanex hotel, is situated along the Malecón drive facing the Caribbean Sea. It is within walking distance to Old Havana and a short taxi ride away from El Vedado.
