Melia Hotels to open a new luxury hotel in the centre of Malaga

Hotel chain Melia is to open a new 5 star luxury hotel in the centre of Malaga. The hotel is set to open for business by the end of 2024.

The hotel will boast one of the best locations in Malaga. The hotel will be located next to the Plaza de la Merced, with views of the sea and the monuments of the Alcazaba.

It will offer guests the chance to be located within walking distance of the Roman Theatre, the Picasso Museum and the Museum of Malaga.

The hotel design has been produced by ASAH, and is inspired from another ME by Meliá hotel, the ME Milan, the pinnacle for urban luxury in Italy.

The façade of the building will have numerous windows and combine the use of white with the local Malaga limestone to create a greater sense of place.

The ground floor will house the main restaurant and a large reception lounge to ensure the transition between the different spaces occurs gradually, adding more life to the urban environment and encouraging contact with the city.

This Melia expansion follows on from the most recent and significant luxury milestone, the opening of Villa Le Blanc, a Gran Meliá Hotel, in Menorca, Spain. Located on a biosphere reserve island, the hotel is an energy-efficient and carbon-neutral destination hotel, with the goal to serve as an international benchmark for environmentally friendly properties
