05 Mar 2020
Meliá Hotels has opened Meliá Koh Samui, a beachfront resort and spa in Thailand, in partnership with Thai holding company Asset World Corporation as part of a plan to build three properties in the country.

Located on Choeng Mon Beach, Meliá Koh Samui resort has 159-rooms and 41-suites as well as a 240sq m YHI spa with four treatment rooms and a sauna and steamroom.

The spa offers a range of massages, facials and body scrubs and wraps using organic Thai wellness brand HARRN products.

Guests can also visit a fitness centre and two outdoor swimming pools, including a large lagoon that meanders like a river through the resort’s tropical gardens.

Additional facilities include a beach club, two restaurants, a kids’ club and mini waterpark.

“Partnering with Meliá will allow us to set a new benchmark for Thai hospitality and drive global demand,” said Khun Wallapa Traisorat, Meliá Koh Samui’s owner, CEO and president of AWC.

“Thailand is a strategic market for Meliá. After more than 30 years successful operations in Asia, we’ve signed a strategic framework agreement with Asset World Corporation, bringing our dream of growing in this country alongside a local partner to fruition,” commented Gabriel Escarrer, executive vice chair and CEO of Meliá Hotels.

Founded in 1956, Meliá operates 374 hotels under nine brands in 40 countries.
