MeliÃ¡ Hotels International, a leading Spanish hotel company, continues to expand in Indonesia, most recently with the opening of a new hotel in Bali, the MeliÃ¡ Ubud, along with five other properties in the country's major cities.
MeliÃ¡ Hotels International signed a management agreement with PT Pilar Prambanan Investama, part of the Podo Joyo Masyhur Group, earlier this month to manage the new MeliÃ¡ Ubud.
'The Melia brand has been present in Bali for almost 30 years. Melia Hotels International is very excited about adding Melia Ubud to our portfolio, giving our clients additional accommodation options and increasing our cross-selling opportunity between our properties in Nusa Dua, Benoa and Legian,' MeliÃ¡ vice president for the Asia-Pacific region, Bernardo Cabot, said .
The MeliÃ¡ Ubud is its fourth hotel on the Island of Gods.
The company plans to open the Gran MeliÃ¡ Bintan in the Riau Islands, MeliÃ¡ Surabaya in East Java, Innside Yogyakarta in Yogyakarta, Innside Makassar in South Sulawesi and Sol House Legian in Bali in the near future.
'Indonesia is a very special place for MeliÃ¡ Hotels International, as it was in Bali in 1985 when Gabriel Escarrer opened the company's first international hotel, the MeliÃ¡ Bali,' he added.
Prior to the opening of its latest property in Ubud, it managed the Gran MeliÃ¡ Jakarta, MeliÃ¡ Bali, MeliÃ¡ Purosani and Sol Beach House Benoa Bali.
Melia, the world's largest resort hotel company in the world, offers seven brands to meet customer demand.
It offers premium-class accommodations under the Gran MeliÃ¡, ME, and Paradisus Resort brands and upscale hotels under the MeliÃ¡ and Innside brands.
Meanwhile, it offers mid-scale accommodations through its Tryp and Sol brands. (++++)
