Gran Meliá Sancti Petri to open in Andalusia, Spain, this month

Following an extensive four-year refurbishment, the five-star Gran Lujo Meliá Sancti Petri hotel will relaunch this month as the new Gran Meliá Sancti Petri.

The Gran Meliá Lujo hotel celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and it will be the third Gran Meliá Hotels & Resorts property in Andalusia and the eighth in Spain.             

The luxury hotel is located on the beach front of La Barrosa, Cádiz, and set among picturesque hills, rivers and farmland bordering Spain’s southern coast.

Surrounded by five golf courses, Gran Meliá Sancti Petri has 227 rooms and suites, which have been refurbished along with all public spaces to take on Gran Melia’s luxurious and contemporary branding, as well as offering a range of new experiences.

Located across three floors, rooms are spacious and decorated in traditional Spanish style with terracotta flooring, as well as a private terrace with views overlooking the sea, the golf course, the gardens or the hotel pool area.


Gran Meliá Sancti Petri is recognised as one of the most beautiful buildings in the Andalusian province.

It has been inspired by the most impressive architectural jewels of Andalusia, such as the Mosque of Cordoba and the Alhambra.

Gran Meliá Sancti Petri stands in an authentic neo-Mudejar palace and maintains its Nasrid style with stunning marble courtyards, Arab gardens and swimming pools.

It has a relaxing spa and offers an extensive range of beauty treatments and therapies, as well as a 24-hour gym.

The hotel has five restaurants, including Alevante by Ángel León and Duna Beach Club, open from May to October, which is situated on the beachfront and the perfect spot for watching the sunset and enjoying Andalusian cuisine.
