Melia Hotels expands presence in Middle East

Leading hotel company, Meliá Hotels International, has unveiled their next major launch as the ME by Meliá brand continues to grow.

ME by Meliá Dubai will open in the jaw-dropping Opus building, developed by real estate company Omniyat.

Zaha Hadid’s first hotel project for which she will design all of the interiors and exteriors, ME Dubai is situated at the heart of the up-and-coming Burj Khalifa district.

Opening in 2016, the stylish hotel will consist of 100 rooms, complimented by Michelin-star restaurants and exclusive international F&B brands, masterfully distributed across 250,000 sq. ft in the striking 95 metre high Opus building.

Along with Zaha Hadid’s masterwork of design, whose repertoire gravitates towards interconnectedness and originality, the Opus building will stand out as one of the most striking landmarks on the Dubai skyline and offer hotel guests and residents of the serviced apartments an experiential journey.

ME by Meliá is for cultured, fashionable guests who are driven by new experiences and opportunities. 

The brand has been built on first-rate service, and ME Dubai will be no exception. Each guest’s stay will be orchestrated by the dedicated Aura Manager, whose job it is to know the city back-to-front and use this knowledge to make the hotel’s service truly bespoke.

ME Dubai’s facilities and Aura service will also be extended to the owners of the exclusive serviced apartments located on the upper floors, including four penthouses with private roof terraces.

Chief executive Meliá Hotels International, Gabriel Escarrer, said: “We have been searching for the next city for the ME brand to locate in and found it in this remarkable project in Dubai.

“It is a fascinating, exciting city that meets the high standards that ME by Meliá offers guests.

“Zaha Hadid’s masterpiece has exceeded our expectations; we are grateful to Omniyat for developing this ambitious project, and for trusting Meliá Hotels International as their key partner.”
