New Destinations

New Temptations

The Axel Hotels family continues to grow in order to offer new experiences in LGTBIQ+ friendly destinations.

Early 2020 we crossed the Atlantic Ocean to open AxelBeach Miami, the first Axel Hotel in the United States that will become the new reference for the LGBTIQ+ community in South Beach.

In 2022 we opened one more Axel Hotel in an international destination with a lot of sugar, Havana (Cuba). 

To this destination, we will add three new hotels in the next few years: one in Valencia (Spain), another on the island of Madeira (Portugal) with a different leisure option in an environment of relaxation and nature, and another one in Bilbao (Spain) which could become the second establishment of Axel Hotels in the Basque Country. 

All of these new destinations promote tolerance and diversity, where guests will be able to enjoy Axel's unique feel and heterofriendly philosophy.
