Meliá Hotels International has unveiled plans to open Gran Meliá Lombok in 2024, marking the brand’s first property on the exotic island of Lombok and its second in Indonesia.

Located at Torok Bay in the south of the island, surrounded by green hills and a beach with crystal-clear waters, the hotel will boast 22 luxury beachside villas and another 105 villas on the mountainside, all with private infinity pools and stunning ocean views.

Careful attention will be paid to the architectural design, utilising natural elements that represent the essence of the destination. The hotel will blend seamlessly with its natural environment, allowing guests to fully immerse themselves in the surroundings. An abundance of large windows will allow in plentiful natural light to promote indoor/outdoor living, while elegant furniture and warm tones convey a sense of pure luxury.

The entire hotel has been conceived as an authentic sanctuary for wellbeing, from the beachside YHI Spa offering relaxing rituals and treatments to the well-equipped fitness centre.

In keeping with the Gran Meliá brand, the hotel will feature world-class dining options that combine the best local ingredients and techniques to offer guests authentic Indonesian dining experiences.

Gabriel Escarrer, Vice Chairman and CEO of Meliá Hotels International, comments: “Our commitment to Indonesia, where we opened our first international hotel more than 35 years ago, is stronger than ever and we are extremely happy to sign this new agreement, an outstanding property that will become a destination resort in itself in Lombok and will further increase the prosperity of the entire community.”
