Meliá Chiang Mai, a 260-key urban hotel, is slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Owned by Asset World Corporation (AWC), one of Thailand’s leading integrated real estate group, and launched by Meliá Hotels International, the five-star property joins Meliá Koh Samui, which opened in 2020, and the 176-room INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok Sukhumvit, which is scheduled to begin welcoming guests in 2022.
“With its exceptional location in the heart of Chiang Mai and an unparalleled array of facilities, Meliá Chiang Mai is a landmark project of our strategic roll-out of the Meliá brand in Thailand, in line with AWC’s growth-led strategy,” said Mrs Wallapa Traisorat, Meliá Chiang Mai’s owner and AWC’s CEO and president. “Partnering with Meliá has allowed us to set a new benchmark for Thai hospitality and together we aim to build a better future for Thailand’s tourism landscape and economy.”
Housed in a 22-floor tower with an adjoining seven-floor podium building, the property will feature:
- The Level – Thirty-eight rooms and six suites offering an upgraded level of service and benefits including access to The Level executive lounge;
- The Level Presidential Suite, which will command 1,200 square feet on the tower’s top floor;
- a signature restaurant on the 21st floor that will specialize in contemporary Northern Thai dishes with Mediterranean influences;
- and an all-day dining restaurant called Mosaic, offering Mediterranean cuisine in a marketplace setting;
- Meliá’s signature YHI Spa with seven treatment rooms;
- and a fully-equipped fitness center and swimming pool.
The property’s extensive event and conference facilities include a 3,854-square-foot ballroom and three function rooms on the tower’s second floor above the lobby and a 1,884-square-foot multi-function room on the podium building’s top floor. The ballroom’s 1,860-square-foot pre-function area is connected to an outdoor swimming pool and poolside bar. And the seventh-floor multifunction space opens to a 2,400-square-foot terrace that can be used for events.
“The global pandemic could not dampen our determination to unveil an extraordinary hotel that promises to exude the mystic splendor of Northern Thailand with Meliá’s warm Spanish hospitality, distinctive passion for service and focus on the customer’s wellbeing ever-present,” added Meliá Chiang Mai’s general manager, Edward Snoeks.
