Meliá Hotels expand in SE Asia with two new hotels in Thailand


Spanish company Meliá Hotels International is expanding its luxury brand presence in Southeast Asia with two new hotels in Thailand, including the launch of the first Paradisus by Meliá-branded property in the region.

Meliá Pattaya City will start welcoming guests in December 2024 following a full renovation and rebrand of the 234-room Grand Sole Pattaya.

Slated to open in 2028, Paradisus Jomtien Resort will be the first Paradisus announced to open in Asia, with the luxury all-inclusive brand already well-established in South America and Spain.

The oceanfront new-build will offer 698 rooms, with 44 rooms to feature outdoor plunge pools, and a convention centre and meeting rooms.

The addition of Meliá Pattaya City and Paradisus Jomtien Resort will further enhance Meliá’s presence in partnership with AWC, bringing the total number of hotels under their umbrella to six in the country.

“The addition of these two hotels to our portfolio marks a major milestone in our long-term relationship with AWC,” said Gabriel Escarrer, CEO and Chairman of Meliá Hotels International.

“We will build on the success of Meliá Koh Samui, Meliá Chiang Mai, and most recently INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit in Thailand with AWC.”
