Meliá adds two new hotels in Thailand

Meliá Hotels International is expanding its partnership with Thailand’s Asset World Corporation (AWC) to launch two new properties – Meliá Pattaya City, and the first Paradisus by Meliá-branded property in the region, Paradisus Jomtien Resort.

Both hotels will further enhance Meliá’s presence in partnership with AWC, bringing the total number of hotels under their umbrella to six in the country.

Meliá Hotels International will launch two new properties in Thailand with Asset World Corporation

Situated in the beachside resort town of Pattaya, Meliá Pattaya City will start welcoming guests in December 2024 following a full renovation of the three-star, 234-room Grand Sole Pattaya. The new property will embrace its coastal location by expanding F&B seafood offerings with an all-day dining restaurant inspired by a local fisherman’s village. Facilities will include new bars, event spaces, kids’ club, fitness centre, and a theatre.

Paradisus Jomtien Resort will debut in 2028 in a 43-floor tower boasting 698 keys. The new hotel will sport a more dynamic and sustainable facade, incorporating vertical tropical greenery into the exterior. Forty-four rooms will also feature outdoor plunge pools, and the hotel will comprise multiple restaurants, a gym and spa, convention centre and meeting rooms.

“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.”

Wallapa Traisorat, president and CEO of AWC, shared: “This collaboration will create significant value for the surrounding community and contribute to the Thai economy.”
