Melia Hotels International

Founded in 1956 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, Meliá Hotels International is one of the largest hotel companies in the world and the largest hotel chain in Spain in both resort and city hotels. The company currently operates more than 350 hotels in 35 countries and 4 continents under its brands: Meliá, Gran Meliá, ME by Meliá, Paradisus, Innside by Meliá, TRYP by Wyndham, Sol Hotels and Club Meliá.


Our Philosophy

Throughout its history, the Company has been involved in a number of merger and acquisition operations with other hotel companies, allowing the company to grow at a startling rate. This evolution and the strategic focus on international growth has allowed Meliá Hotels International to be the first Spanish hotel company with presence in key markets such as China, the Middle East, or the US, as well as maintaining its leadership in traditional markets such as Europe, Latin America or the Caribbean.

In 1996, it was the first Spanish hotel company to be floated on the stock exchange, with the resulting requirement of transparency, regulatory control, and corporate social responsibility. Since then, the company’s focus on maintaining a stable financial position has seen an increase in loyalty among its shareholders and investors.

The company is also a point of reference in the Spanish tourist sector when it comes to Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility. Its Global Sustainability Policy formally sets out its commitment to the environment, cultural and social integration and sustainable, responsible growth. Meliá Hotels International is the only “Biosphere Hotel Company” supported by UNESCO, as well as the only company in the sector to be included in the Spanish Stock Exchange index of responsible companies, the FTSE4Good, and to have signed the United Nations' Global Compact. It also maintains a strategic alliance with UNICEF for the protection of children, which has become its priority in the social arena.
