Considered the Havana Cabana mascot, “Maiden” – the goddess of the sea – was created by artist Colette Pisut to honor the mermaids of The Florida Keys and be a welcoming face for all hotel guests. Inspired by the water spirit Yemaya, Maiden is one of the largest paintings and is showcased as a floor mural, poolside, under the chiki hut, which is a central gathering point for guests relax, celebrate and enjoy the beauty of Havana Cabana.

From here, a number of Pisut’s paintings branch out and adorn walls, columns and walkways with such pieces as Lola & Rue – a dancing queen and her mate Rooster; a Message in a Bottle in search of freedom along Florida’s southernmost shore; a patriotic Cuban flag; a Rustic Butterfly with a special message in Spanish that translates to “the best things in life aren’t things,” and more.

Pisut says she’s been moved by her surroundings and was drawn to the nautical nature of Havana Cabana, due to its proximity to the water, as well as its lush surroundings of tropical foliage – all, which she adds, are clearly depicted in her exclusive creations.

A Key West-resident, Lance Berry encapsulates the feeling of his surroundings with his impressionistic style – a summer breeze, rain shower, or, in the case of Havana Cabana, underwater sea adventures. Berry’s large and expressive brushstrokes and highly saturated tones provide extreme contrasts within his designs.

A popular attraction in Cuba, Berry also recreated the spirit of Yemaya – or The Mermaid – along the main stairway at Havana Cabana, where she can live and rule over the sea  as “the Mother of All.” Drawn to Merpeople, Berry also created Triton, messenger of the sea, who rules alongside Yemya at Havana Cabana.

The Key West Rooster, Ernesto, is depicted in the alcove, and is a popular photo spot with guests. Something visitors are sure to notice in Key West are the iguanas, which Berry also painted among a backdrop of tropical flowers and lush foliage. According to Berry, he wants his artwork to provide a moment of awe and wonderment, and knows a piece is complete “when it makes him smile.”

Trained in Spain and a transplant from New York City, Olga Manousalvas has been described as an artistic polyglot, speaking many languages through her artistic style and expression. An internationally-exhibited painter, Manousalvas captures island dwellers with a statement of high color and vibrant narratives.

Our Story 2

Rather than select her design, Manousalvas says what she creates chooses her, one example of her paintings at Havana Cabana – the Cleansing portrays a real-life experience from her childhood where her grandmother helped ward away evil spirits through a specific Cuban ritual. Manousalvas’ captivating canvasses portray Afro-Cuban rituals and culture through her unique style and vivid hues.

    What a fun place for all ages! The 50s Cuba atmosphere pervades the hotel, and the service is amazing. They have the largest pool in Key West, and the pool service is the best I’ve ever seen.
