Spain’s Melia Hotels goes full steam ahead with growth in China with two new projects in Inner Mongolia and Xi’an.

Melia Hotels and Resorts has announced the signing of two new hotels in China, the Meliá Arxan Hot-Spring Resort in Inner Mongolia and Meliá Qinhan New Town in Xi’an.

We find out more about the group’s planned expansion in the Asia Pacific.

Melia bets on the Asia Pacific for new decade

Melia has big plans for the Asia Pacific region in the new decade and has already gotten the ball rolling on two significant projects for the group, both of which are due to open their doors in 2022.

The Meliá Arxan Hot-Spring Resort in Inner Mongolia and Meliá Qinhan New Town in Xi’an will increase the group’s footprint in China, bringing their total portfolio of projects to 11 – five operational and six in the pipeline.

“With the signing of Meliá Arxan Hot-Spring Resort and Meliá Qinhan New Town, we are excited to bring another two Meliá Hotels & Resorts properties to the region, further enhancing the importance of China in APAC for the group,” said Bernardo Cabot, the Regional Vice President of Meliá Hotels International Asia Pacific.

Following the signing of these two projects, Melia will have a roster of 51 operational hotels in the Asia Pacific region.

Hot springs and ancient capitals

The two new properties offer visitors the chance to experience some of the most important sites in China, both holistically and historically.

Arxan National Forest Park, which is one of the most idyllic areas in Inner Mongolia, is home to a number of AAAAA tourist attractions, many of which are hot springs and eco destinations.

The Meliá Arxan Hot-Spring Resort will take advantage of the fact that Arxan has been named as China’s first Climate Ecological City and give guests the opportunity to indulge in the area’s natural healing springs.

Xi’an is one of the country’s four ancient capitals and has an impressive historical significance in that it is ​the starting point of the Silk Road and home to the Terracotta Army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang.

The Meliá Qinhan New Town hotel will be in the heart of The Xixian New Area and guests will be able to explore the city’s biggest attractions.

“Taiwei Group has many years of experience in operating themed vacation and leisure resorts and hotels, we believe that working with Meliá Hotels International, the world-leading leisure group, our new projects in Arxan and Xi’an will be developed into an outstanding level, which will deliver international quality and a more sustainable approach to guests and the local community. We look forward to successful and continuous cooperation with Meliá Hotels International,” said Mr. Fu Yu, Group Vice Chairman of Beijing Taiwei Group Holdings, Melia’s partner in the venture.
