i By August 23, 2023 No Comments

Meliá Hotels International expects to open its 14th hotel in Mexico in the city of San Miguel de Allende in 2025.

The luxury ME by Meliá brand property will have 140 rooms and all the brand’s signature elements including a signature restaurant, a luxury spa, a fully-equipped state-of-the-art gym, and an exclusive rooftop bar.

The ME by Meliá hotel in San Miguel de Allende is another milestone for the brand’s track record in Mexico; it is the fourth hotel in the country under this luxury hallmark, together with the well-known ME Cabo and the future ME Guadalajara and ME Sayulita hotels. Choosing San Miguel de Allende as the next destination for ME by Meliá highlights this city’s relevance as a highly attractive place for travelers who seek unique cultural experiences.

The city of San Miguel de Allende is in the state of Guanajuato, in the heart of Mexico.  It has been ranked as the ‘Best City in the World’ in the Travel + Leisure Awards on several occasions. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it has kept its essence throughout the centuries and has become a must-see destination for history, culture and architecture enthusiasts. Its cobbled streets and colonial style buildings are home to a rich blend of culture and traditions that are also reflected in the city’s lively artistic and gastronomic scene. For the last three years, tourism in the city has undergone sustained growth, attracting national and international travelers who wish to immerse themselves in Mexico’s traditions.

Meliá reports that signing this new project reaffirms the importance of the Mexican market to the company and its growth strategy in the luxury segment. Currently, the company operates seven hotels with the same number in the pipeline, which will open between this year and 2025. Within the next two years, the company will have doubled its presence in Mexico, with more than 80 percent of its portfolio made up of its luxury brand hotels.
