Melia Hotels International grows its luxury brands and expands in Central America with the addition of a Gran Mélia Hotels & Resorts property and a ME by Mélia hotel. The expansion allows Mélia Hotels International to commit to the region and offer its high-quality experiences to travelers and locals.
On the heels of the success of ME Cabo, the second ME by Mélia will lie in Guadalajara. ME Guadalajara will feature 150 rooms and suites, a sky pool and a rooftop area. Outstanding dining experiences also expect to appear at the new property.
The Gran Mélia luxury brand plans to open in Rivera Nayarit, bringing a hotel blending luxury with Spanish design. The future Gran Mélia on Rivera Nayarit will include 180 rooms and suites, as well as all of the exceptional facilities expected from the Mélia brand.
“The addition of these two new hotels is a major boost to the international growth of our luxury brands, which we will continue to grow in key destinations worldwide,” said Gabriel Escarrer, executive vice president and CEO, Meliá Hotels International. “The debut of the Gran Meliá brand in a country with potential for luxury hotels such as Mexico, is a significant milestone, and I am positive that it will be a resounding success.”
