Discover the Spanish Islands with Melia

With properties across the Balearics and the Canary Islands, Melia brings Spanish luxury to prime locations. We have taken a look at a handful of those available including an amazing property opening very soon.

Villa Le Blanc, Gran Meliá, Menorca (opening July 2022)

Located on the seafront and surrounded by a privileged natural environment on the south coast of the island of Menorca, a few minutes from crystal clear coves and cultural points, Hotel Villa Le Blanc, Gran Meliá in Menorca will open July 15th 2022 with 159 Rooms & Suites.

Following a nine-month refurbishment work and total rebranding, Villa Le Blanc, Gran Melia will be the first and only 5* luxury hotel on the island of Menorca and a benchmark for luxury hospitality in all the Balearic Islands.

Menorca is amongst the most untouched islands in the Mediterranean, still harbouring hidden corners, secret coves and picture-perfect lighthouses for guests to uncover. The island itself is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with around 220 species of birds and 1000 species of plants recorded there, 60 of which are endemic to the island.

Villa Le Blanc, Gran Meliá celebrates the refined taste for the simple pleasures of life, the art of good living and preserving the timeless character and beauty of the island it calls home.

ME Ibiza

In sought-after Santa Eulalia del Río, next to the legendary Nikki Beach Club famed for its sunset cocktails and DJ sets, this is another haven of indulgence and wellbeing. As well as a rooftop terrace with an infinity pool, a bar and daily antigravity yoga sessions with spectacular views, it boasts a spa specialising in Ayurvedic, Thai and other Southeast Asian treatments. There’s an arty feel to it all, too, thanks to the hotel’s Culture Collective program of multimedia collaborations with local artists.

Aside the fresh Mediterranean fare available at Nikki Beach, you can enjoy at the Origens restaurant a gastro journey through the Traditions of Ibiza, capturing the atmosphere of the island, enjoying bites of land and sea with signature touches and premium organic ingredients. Other options are sophisticated tapas, light bites and pasta dishes during the day at RADIO ME Ibiza Rooftop restaurant while at night, the protagonists are meat and fish prepared in the Josper oven and charcoal cooking with Ibiza Bay providing a stunning backdrop.

This summer Kwãnt, the prestigious London cocktail bar that lands at ME Ibiza in pop-up format, joins the gastronomic offer. Under the name of Kwãnt by the Sea, the aura and talent of Erik Lorincz, its expert mixologist, are transferred to the island, adapting its mixes to the Mediterranean spirit.

Light and airy in white and neutral hues, rooms and suites at ME Ibiza – another of the Leading Hotels of the World Group – include connecting options for families, and there’s a kids’ club where younger guests can make new friends. Some have full-on sea views and many have terraces – some with a whirlpool bath or even a private pool.

This is a switched-on resort with a concierge team full of tips for immersing yourself in this playful destination and party island. Insider tips include a laidback lobster shack frozen in time, a speakeasy-style fine-dining food studio by a noma alumnus, and Ibiza's only black-sand beach in an off-the-beaten-track rugged cove down a steep flight of stone steps, with a restaurant serving salt-baked fish and a simple wooden chiringuito with ice-cold mojitos.

Gran Melia Palácio de Isora in Tenerife

This stunning property blends timeless luxury, contemporary chic and a feel for the natural wonders of its lovely island home, from the Atlantic Ocean at its feet to the majestic volcano of Mount Teide as its backdrop. Central to the resort is Europe’s longest saltwater hotel infinity pool, beautifully designed to fit in with those lovely landscapes and featuring 80 water beds and two integrated water rituals, and there are also adult-only, family, children’s and baby pools, along with an extensive Clarins spa where guests can dedicate themselves to their wellbeing.

Dining is a highlight here, with nine global restaurant options and six bars and lounges meaning there’s something to suit all moods and tastes. They include the Japanese restaurant with its sushi bar and teppanyaki tables, DÚO Restaurant with its fresh takes on traditional Iberian fare, and the Oasis Pool Grille with its Mediterranean paellas and seafood dishes.

Upgrade to RedLevel and you can choose between an adult-only exclusive boutique hotel within the resort, with extra benefits including access to two exclusive restaurants, or a family experience with superior facilities and services for those travelling with kids.
