ME Hotels Catch the 'Balearic Beat'
Cancun, Cabo, Madrid ... and, er, Vienna ... ME Hotels sure do love to set up shop in the party places, so we are not surprised to hear where they will be making their next move: the Balearic Islands. Rave on!
ME will be bringing their super-cool vibe, minimalist design, Aura Managers and, we hope, 4AM DJ's to Ibiza in June 2014 and to Mallorca in May. The 200-room Ibiza property will be situated bayside in Santa Eulalia and will have direct access from boat to the hotel. There will be 21 ME+ Suites, which usually means a dedicated host looking after you and a complimentary spa treatment, and the hotel will have two pools, Bali beds, an on-site fitness centre and roof top Skinc spa. Don't expect to sleep because DJs at the rooftop cocktail bar will be playing Ibizan classics deep into the night. Rates start at £200 ($320).
The ME Mallorca will be set beachfront on the outskirts of Calvià, less than six miles from super yacht packed Port Adriano. The resort will have 246 rooms and 78 suites, two pools, Bali beds and another SkinC spa. Evening dining is centered around the garden and pool area, which will have gorgeous Mediterranean views. It will likely be a more sedate scene than that of Ibiza, but only barely -- the DJs will be here too. Rates start at £145 ($230).
But wait! That's not all. The brand is also set to open a new property in Dubai -- but are keeping mum on the juicy details ... for now.
