Spanish Hotel Brand Meliá To Open Chiang Mai Property

Spanish luxury five-star hotel brand Meliá brought its first property to Koh Samui last year.

In 2021, Chiang Mai will become the Kingdom’s second city to have one of its first-class hotels.

The Meliá Chiang Mai will open in the fourth quarter of the year behind the city’s night bazaar, looming over the splendid Ping River.

The hotel, owned by the Thai real estate group Asset World Corporation (AWC), will have 260 guestrooms.

It will also feature “The Level,” an improved space with 38 rooms and six suites that offers private breakfast service, cocktail and canapé hours, discounts at the spa, access to the executive lounge, private check-in and check-out, and more.

Meliá Chiang Mai’s rooms design refers to the imposing north of Thailand with earthy hues and wood and rattan accents.

Moreover, it will feature outdoor awnings that reflect the kalae houses of the region.

But the hotel’s most striking feature will be its rooftop bar on the 22nd floor.

It allows Chiang Mai to invite tourists to visit its highest bar to date, offering 360-degree spectacular views of the city.

Meliá Chiang Mai also comes with two restaurants, one serving Northern Thai cuisine with Mediterranean touches and another for all-day Mediterranean-focused dining.

Besides, it will have a great pool with a swim-up bar, a gym, and the brand’s famous YHI spa with seven treatment rooms.

The stately hotel appears to have been designed to attract business travelers and groups.

It will have two large lounges, including a 175-square-meter function room located in the seven-story podium building in front of the 22-story main tower.

The second one is a 358-square-meter ballroom with three function rooms for more events.

And the best part is that the ballroom’s spacious, 173-square-meter pre-function area is connected to an outdoor pool and a poolside bar.

Meliá has plans to continue expanding in Thailand.

The brand will open a new property near Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok next year.

The 176-room Innside by Meliá will arrive as the first-of-its-kind hotel to open in Thailand, but more are expected in the future.

Pre-opening fees start at 4,000 baht. However, Meliá Chiang Mai will reveal opening deals for local and foreign tourists next week.
