The historic center of Malaga will be the location for the new hotel of the ME by Meliá brand, overlooking the sea and the Alcazaba monumental complex. Nearby is the Roman Theater, the Picasso Museum and the Museum of Malaga. This location, in full contact with the most important and dynamic cultural and gastronomic area of the city.
The conceptual design of the hotel has been developed by ASAH (Álvaro Sans Arquitectura Hotelera), inspired by another hotel of the brand, the ME Milan, a benchmark of urban luxury in Italy.
The facade of the building opens with numerous windows and combining the white color with the limestone of Malaga, creating a greater sense of place. On the first floor, where the main restaurant and a large reception hall will be located, the transition between spaces is progressive, giving life to the urban environment and favoring contact with the city.
On the second floor, the hotel will have a convention center and a gymnasium, while the next four floors will house the hotel’s 128 guest rooms. On the penthouse, there will be a large heated outdoor infinity pool with solarium, bar and a restaurant that will undoubtedly aspire to become the best rooftop in the city of Malaga.
The project, which was initially planned as a 4-star hotel, has been modified to raise its category to 5 stars and allow the entry of the ME by Meliá brand. This decision was made possible with the intervention of the Malaga City Council and demonstrates the commitment of all parties involved to boost the quality of the destination and improve its competitiveness in the luxury segment.
