Melia Chiang Mai

Thailand has proven to be a sought-after destination for travellers looking for unique experiences and Meliá Hotels International is delighted to be partnering with local companies and expanding its presence with the opening of multiple new hotels, including the striking Meliá Chiang Mai set to open this April.

The property, a striking urban hotel by the River Ping, owned by Thailand’s leading integrated lifestyle real estate group Asset World Corporation (AWC), will be an ideal urban retreat for those looking to explore the city’s touristic attractions including markets and Buddhist temples.

With a design that pays tribute to Chiang Mai’s history and culture, blended with a contemporary flair, the hotel will be housed in a striking 22-floor tower fronted by an adjoining seven-floor podium building. Meliá Chiang Mai will feature two restaurants, two bars and one lounge where guests will be able to indulge in diverse cuisine and state-of-the-art cocktails, and even soak up panoramic city views from the Executive Lounge on the 21st floor. Other facilities include Meliá’s signature YHI Spa with seven treatment rooms, a fully equipped fitness centre, swimming pool, ballroom and four other meeting spaces, and a kids and teens club ensure it is an ideal hotel for leisure and business travellers alike.


The new hotels in Thailand will join to the existing Meliá Koh Samui, which debuted in 10th January 2020 with a nautical theme underscored by boat suites made from refurbished merchant vessels and the beautiful fivestar resort Meliá Phuket Mai Khao – opened on Friday 19th November 2021 – owned by Thailand’s leading residential real estate developer Phuket Villa Group.

“Following the hugely successful opening of Meliá Koh Samui, ranked TripAdvisor’s number one hotel in Koh Samui, Meliá’s new properties will be incredible additions to our portfolio. Thailand has huge potential, and we look forward to working with local brands to enhance their offers and make travellers discover this country.” said Mr Ignacio Martin, Area Managing Director South East Asia of Meliá Hotels International.

“Through our partnership with Spain’s leading hotel group, we are thankful that we can significantly contribute to Phuket’s recovery in the wake of COVID-19 by creating much-needed jobs for the local tourism sector and setting a new benchmark for hospitality on Thailand’s largest island” said Mr Maetapong Upatising, Phuket Villa Group’s Managing Director.

Melia Chiang Mai:

“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 growthled strategy. 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” said Mrs Wallapa Traisorat, Meliá Chiang Mai’s owner and AWC’s CEO and President.

These new hotels highlight Meliá’s presence in Thailand and will pave the way for further new openings in 2023; INNSiDE Bangkok Sukhumvit (scheduled to open at the beginning of the year), which will be the first INNSiDE hotel in the country; Meliá Phuket Kharon, a resort surrounded by 64,000 square-metres of untouched tropical woodland; and Melia Bangkok Bang-Na, a 315-room hotel planned to open in 2025.​
