Melia Hotels International is looking at the future, and it’s all about luxury with a generous side of sustainability. The hotel group is expanding its luxury portfolio in the next three years by a whopping 40 percent, giving your clients more options in some of the world’s hottest destinations, from Europe to Africa to Mexico to Southeast Asia.

Villa Le Blanc Gran Melia in Menorca, the company’s newest hotel and first carbon-neutral prototype—born of its strong commitment to sustainability in all its facets—is leading the way for a slew of properties that are cementing the brand’s status in the luxury arena.

“In today’s market, luxury and exclusivity can no longer be defined from one perspective, therefore our luxury brands [Gran MeliaThe Melia CollectionME by Melia, and Paradisus by Melia] seek to address the world of luxury in different ways. Our mission is to provide conscious travel for an enriching lifestyle”, said Gabriel Escarrer, CEO of Melia Hotels International, in a press statement. “We have an impressive pipeline and our prime luxury hotels will spearhead our continued upwards trajectory, not just in destinations of Melia’s roots of the Mediterranean, but further afield to Africa and Asia too,” he added.

Upcoming openings extend through 2026 and include Palazzo Cordusio, a Gran Melia Hotel in Milan, Ngorongoro Lodge, a Melia Collection Hotel in Tanzania, ME Malta, ME Lisbon, ME Guadalajara in Mexico, Paradisus Gran CanariaParadisus Salinas in Lanzarote, and Gran Melia Nha Trang in Vietnam.

Among these standout properties, the Ngorongoro Lodge, a Melia Collection Hotel opening in June 2023, is in a class all its own. This will be the newest property of the most recent brand addition to the hotel group. The newly renovated five-star Ngorongoro Lodge will have the most extensive hotel room offering in the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, though still small at a modest 56 keys. The green travelers on your list will love to know the hotel will be producing its own electricity, solar energy and drinking water, employing local Maasai tribe members and collaborating with the Moshi-based NGO Born to Learn.
