Meliá invests in one of the world’s newest meccas for luxury travel.
Meliá Hotels International announced the signing of Melia Bintan, its 15th hotel in Indonesia and second on the island of Bintan, following the announcement of Gran Melia Bintan, representing its growing presence in the country. Owned by Kurnia Land, Meliá Bintan is another milestone in Meliá Hotels International’s development and growth strategy in Indonesia and Asia.
“This new project is an exciting addition to our resort portfolio in Indonesia, where we’ve had over 30 years of experience,” says Bernardo Cabot, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific, Meliá Hotels International. “Our momentum continues to be fueled by strong demand for our exceptional guest accommodations and service.

Bintan, the largest island in the Riau archipelago, is blessed with pristine beaches and 23,000 hectares of white sandy coast facing the South China Sea. The island is a short ferry ride away from Singapore and Malaysia, and the addition of a new international airport will give travellers around the world greater access to this tropical paradise.
Melia Bintan is located in a privileged coastal enclave, with 280 rooms and villas covering and area of eight hectares. Managed under the Melia Hotels & Resorts brand, the hotel will have numerous amenities for guests’ enjoyment, such as the renowned Yhi Spa; the Level lounge and suites, where each detail is designed and crafted specially to create unique guest experiences; two beachfront restaurants; a swimming pool with water attractions; and a fitness and large-scale convention center.
