Daily deal: Boutique seduction on a Havanese holiday
This Havanese holiday is located on San Antonio's River Walk.
Barry Manilow was wrong: the hottest spot north of Havana isn't the Copacabana at all — it's San Antonio's Hotel Havana.
There's no trade embargo keeping you from this Cuban paradise nestled on a quiet stretch of the city's River Walk, especially with a half-off Havanese holiday right here at home. Spend an evening in a Havana king room ($135) or king suite ($150) at this historic boutique hotel, complete with breakfast for two, two cocktails at the happening Ocho lounge and two tickets to the renowned San Antonio Museum of Art.
Inhale a breath of fresh Texas air — sweeter than a freshly rolled Cuban cigar — while strolling past the many shops, attractions and eateries that line the famous River Walk, still dotted with some of the site's original swaying cypress, palm and magnolia trees.
Drink in the vintage charm and modern luxury of Ocho lounge, where the Texan tequila and Cuban rum flow as freely the rippling waters outside. No treacherous swim to the border is necessary to escape your dreary day-to-day when you spice things up in the uniquely pet-friendly layouts and luxe linens the Mediterranean revival structure has to offer.
Cash in on this colourful choice before you're shut-out — in which case, one of our favourite Cubans might insist, "You've got some 'splaining to do!"
