Meliá Hotels International has opened a new convention centre at the new Palau de Congressos de Palma and its adjoining hotel, Meliá Palma Bay.
Designed by the Spanish architect, Francisco Mangado, the Palau de Congressos de Palma is located on Palma’s Paseo Marítimo seafront, just five minutes from the airport, the cathedral and the historical heart of the city, offering spectacular views of Palma Bay.
All units, the grand auditorium, small auditorium and exhibition area, can operate separately, which ensures energy use and maintenance costs are kept to a minimum. The complex will use 100% green energy.
Meliá Palma Bay offers 268 rooms that have taken on the wellbeing philosophy of the Meliá brand. The hotel offers guests facilities to help them relax and meditate. The rooftop terrace has a swimming pool overlooking the most spectacular bay in the city, as well as an indoor spa and gym. For the most discerning travellers, Meliá Palma Bay will also have an exclusive service, The Level, within the hotel, providing 53 rooms and a VIP lounge.
Ramón Vidal, recently appointed managing director of the entire complex comments: “This is one of the most complex pre-opening processes I have seen in my long career, given both the dimension and the quality of the project, as well as the deadlines we have set ourselves by committing to starting operations in April, given that we already have some events booked. I am absolutely certain that we will achieve it.”
