About two miles northeast of Santa Clara city, Hotel Villa La Granjita is the perfect destination to enjoy the natural environment of Cuba’s centre. Amid Royal palm trees, La Granjita has traditional-style rooms, with terraces and balconies in most of them. Architecture is inspired on the first inhabitants of this region’s style with two-story hexagonal cabins. The hardwood furniture is simple but comfortable; all feature air conditioning, satellite TV and a telephone. The bathrooms are of modern style with marble countertops. The restaurant has glass walls overlooking the pool and features handsome contemporary artwork inspired by the Taino Indian theme. The staff offers a friendly service and the peaceful environment provided by the coconut, palm and fruit trees do the rest. Horse-riding is a specialty here.
