Meliá Chiang Mai

Thailand: Owned by Asset World Corporation and launching by Meliá Hotels International, a 260-key hotel next to the River Ping in Chiang Mai is slated to open its doors in Q4 2021.

Meliá Chiang Mai will comprise a 22-floor tower fronted by an adjoining seven-floor podium building. 

It will feature two restaurants, two bars, two lounges (including an executive lounge on the twenty-first floor), Meliá’s YHI Spa with seven treatment rooms, a fitness centre, swimming pool, ballroom and four meeting spaces.

Of the 260 rooms, 38 of these along with six suites will belong to ‘The Level’ – an upgraded level of service and benefits, which includes access to the executive lounge.

A rooftop bar, claimed to be the highest in the city, will feature two bars connected by a glass bridge. 

The signature restaurant, located on the twenty-first floor, will serve Northern Thai dishes whereas the all-day-dining restaurant Mosaic will offer Mediterranean cuisine.

“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 Khun 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.”

Ignacio Martinarea managing director SEA of Meliá Hotels International, said: “Following the hugely successful opening of Meliá Koh Samui, ranked TripAdvisor’s number one hotel in Koh Samui, Meliá Chiang Mai will be another flagship property for Meliá Hotels International in Thailand. As we continue to strengthen our growth strategy with our key partners, AWC understands and shares our strong service and hospitality philosophy – a fundamental factor in ensuring the quality, reputation, and sustainability we strive for.”

General Manager Edward Snoeks added: “The global pandemic could not dampen our determination to unveil an extraordinary hotel that promises to exude the mystic splendour of Northern Thailand with Meliá’s warm Spanish hospitality, distinctive passion for service and focus on the customer’s wellbeing ever-present.” 

The five-star hotel is part of Meliá’s brand roll-out across key destinations in Thailand. The Meliá Koh Samui debuted in January 2020, and INNSiDE by Meliá Bangkok is due to open in 2022.
