Meliá Hotels International:
The future of inclusive luxury

As it celebrates a year of landmark new hotel openings, Meliá Hotels International, Spain’s largest hotel group and the third largest in Europe continues its commitment to creating a safe and inclusive environment for the LGBTQ+ community, friends and allies, embracing openness and celebrating the diverse lives of its guests from around the world, regardless of their orientations and identities.

The Meliá brand has long distinguished itself through innovative, authentic experiences, sustainability efforts (it was named the most sustainable hotel group in Spain and Europe by S&P), strategic partnerships, targeted engagement with diverse communities and a focus on luxury, design personalisation and modern technology.

The brand has its sights set on continued, purposeful global expansion, with new luxury openings in Lisbon, Malta, Tanzania, Milan, and more to come, all evoking the essence of Spanish culture, based on a life well lived on intuitive personal service, exceptional experiences, and modern expressions of Spanish hospitality.

We spotlight six hotels in the Meliá Hotels International portfolio across its two pioneering luxury brands: ME by Meliá and Gran Meliá. From London to Milan, Ibiza to Menorca, Meliá goes the extra mile to tailor experiences specifically for LGBTQ+ travellers – and all travellers –with activations such as Queer Destinations Committed Hotels, unique and innovative experiences, cultural enrichment, sustainable and responsible tourism, and integration of wellness and lifestyle.
