Banyan Tree Group’s Angsana brand introduced its first location in the America’s, Angsana Cayo Santa Maria. Opened earlier this month on November 15, the adults-only beach resort also marks the second Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts property in Cuba.

The 252-room property provides several restaurants and bars, including a beachfront grill and jazz lounge. The location will also feature the hotel chain’s award-winning Angsana Spa, which offers Asian-inspired spa treatments. Other amenities include an outdoor pool, gym and a wedding venue.

The Trump Administration recently added the property to its Cuba Restricted List, a selection of properties Americans are not allowed to visit because the Cuban military owns them.
