PALMA DE MALLORCA, SPAIN—Meliá Hotels International will open Meliá Campione later this year in the region of Campione d’Italia, marking its seventh hotel in the country.
The 41-room hotel is located in the province of Como in Lombardy, an Italian tax-free zone bordering Switzerland, and is proximate Lugano.
Located on the shores of Lake Lugano, Meliá Campione sits next to the Campione Casino, built in 1933, and near the region’s other attractions, including the marina, the Oratory of Saint Peter and the Parish Museum.
“This beautiful Italian province, halfway between Italy and Switzerland and blessed by Lake Lugano, is an area of great potential for the luxury hotel and travel industry and puts Meliá Hotels International in a strong position in the Italian market,” stated Gabriel Escarrer, vice chairman/CEO.
Meliá Campione will include all-day dining and a YHI Spa & Wellness Center.
Meliá is managing the hotel for international investment group The Khamas, which includes more than 120 companies in sectors such as real estate development, contracting and construction, hotels, manufacturing, franchising and education.
“We are proud to partner with Meliá Hotels International for our upcoming boutique property at Campione and they are our preferred partners in UAE and globally,” stated Bader Bukhamas, Khamas Group of Investment Cos.’ chairman.
