Melia expands footprints to Jamaica
Melia, an international leader in resort management, has expanded its footprints to Jamaica.
Last Friday, the Spanish group unveiled plans for the new Meli· Braco Village in Trelawny. The 226-room hotel is owned by the National Insurance Fund (NIF).
Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, the hotel's general manager, Dimitris Kosvogiannis, told the large gathering of guests that Jamaica was a long-awaited destination for Melia Hotels International.
In fact, the English-speaking island has been a major focus of the hotel group's global expansion strategy.
hundreds of jobs
Excited about the prospects of providing hundreds of jobs to Jamaicans, Kosvogiannis is boasting of an all-Jamaican team of contractors.
The colonial-style property, formerly operated by SuperClubs, is home to the most stunning beaches in the Caribbean, and features several restaurants and a variety of bars, pools and spas. The property will undergo a comprehensive renovation.
"Once it is adapted to the high standards of the Melia brand and the newly heightened quality of the destination, the property will be managed as an upscale Melia International all-inclusive hotel," said Kosvogiannis.
