About ME by Meliá

By capturing these elements in urban and resort destinations, this new philosophy ignites a passion in each guest while appealing to their senses and emotions. The experience is unforgettable. There are currently ME hotels in London, Madrid, Milan, Ibiza, Mallorca, Cancún, Cabo and Miami, with openings slated for 2017 in Caracas and 2018 in Dubai.
