Melia Hotels International has announced the reopening of hotels in Mexico and The Caribbean, along with slated reopening dates for additional properties in these regions.
These hotels and resorts are all operating under the newly debuted Stay Safe with Melia program. The company has partnered with Bureau Veritas, an industry leader in inspection, certification, and testing, to ensure the Melia Hotels International system is achieving the highest standards in the management of preventative measures to combat COVID-19 in its hotels worldwide.
Those that have already reopened Paradisus Playa del Carmen, Paradisus Los Cabos, The Grand Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real, Melia Caribe Beach Resort, and Melia Punta Cana Beach Resort. November openings include Paradisus Cancun (Nov. 1) and Melia Nassau Beach (Nov. 22), while ME Cabo and Melia Braco Village will open just in time for the holidays on Dec. 1 and Dec. 18, respectively.
Under the Stay Safe with Melia program, check-in, check-out and concierge services will now be offered digitally only. Upon check-in, additional safety measures include temperature checks of all guests upon arrival, and offering special COVID-19 amenities kits with a mask, gloves and hydroalcoholic gel to all guests. Rooms will have limited employee contact and shared amenities kits such as dental, shaving and shoe shine will be available on request. Only essential items such as shampoo and soap will be offered in the room. Self-service buffet stations have been modified to a market-style service concept featuring pre-packaged food. Additionally, complimentary beverage stations have been removed throughout all resorts. All menus throughout the resorts will only be offered digitally, and reservations are required for all restaurants in order to enforce social distancing.
Pool and beach chair layouts have been modified to adhere to social distancing at restaurants, and new entertainment and programming has debuted to meet the needs of social distancing. Spas now offer a reduced list of treatments and are available by appointment only.
All of the above MHI resorts will open with discounted deals ranging from 35 percent to 50 percent off nightly rates and free cancellation for all reservations. Select resorts will also offer complimentary airport transfers for certain room categories, resort credits and extra MeliaRewards bonus points, and offers for kids to stay free.
Melia Hotels International will also debut Paradisus Playa Mujeres in 2021. Located just 30 minutes from Cancun International Airport, the newly built resort will feature 498 suite-style rooms, 10 dining options, a Greg Norman-designed golf course, and the signature YHI Spa, and eco-conscioua. Paradisus Playa Mujeres will be the fourth Paradisus resort in Mexico.
