Good news - the search is over for a charming, boutique place to stay in rustic and unexplored Trinidad! Finca Kenia is a wonderfully restored nineteenth century property on the edge of the Santa Rosa Valley.
Guests are greeted to a homely ambience at this finca, with simple and modest decor with touches of local art work colouring the walls. There are just six guest rooms, all of which differ in size and style. Some rooms are in the main farmhouse so are colonial in style, while the newer rooms are semi-detached and close to the garden or kitchen. They all feature their own terrace table, chairs, rocking chairs and sometimes even a hammock, which adds to the charm and slow-paced feel to the property.
The food is simply delicious here, and fresh might we add! The hotel has its own vegetable garden and meals are generally all created from the finest of ingredients and to personal tastes. If you are a breakfast person this finca is for you, enjoy fresh juice and the best pancakes in Cuba, all from the comfort of your own terrace.
The hotel's large back garden now sports a swimming pool and lounging chairs, which are ideal for soaking up the views of the ruins of a colonial fort towards the mountains. Aside from relaxing, Finca Kenia has stables and horses, so guests can saddle up and explore the stunning Cuban outback.
Why we love it
The horses here are beautiful, and spending your days at leisure riding and visiting breathtaking waterfalls in the forest for a bathe and a picnic make a perfect Cuban stay.
