Haiti currently has five hotels and 644 rooms in its active hotel development pipeline, according to data from STR.
The country recently saw the opening of two major hotels in the last year, including the 109-room Best Western and the 128-room Royal Oasis, both of which are located in the Petion-Ville suburb of Port-au-Prince.
The total is based on data through the end of September.
Another major property, the new four-star incarnation of the historic El Rancho hotel by Spain’s NH Hotels, is tentatively scheduled to open this month, following the completion of construction over the summer.
Another hotel in the pipeline is the Marriott project, a partnership between Turgeau Developments and regional mobile giant Digicel. That property is slated to open in 2015 with 175 rooms.
