Translation Priorities: Optional.

The climate, the gastronomy and the idyllic Mediterranean landscapes are some of the reasons why the Costa Brava welcomes millions of tourists who seek to discover this unique way of life for a few days. This is why Meliá Hotels International wants to honour the alluring spirit of the Mediterranean with the opening of its two hotels: the Lloret de Mar Meliá and the ZEL Costa Brava.

In this way, the Mediterranean lifestyle brand created by Meliá Hotels International and Rafa Nadal lands in Cala Giverola, in Tossa de Mar, with the ZEL Costa Brava, a home away from home where you can enjoy equal parts relaxation and fun. But that’s not all: Meliá also arrives in Lloret with the Hotel Meliá Lloret de Mar, a five-star establishment located where the emblematic Gran Hotel Monterrey used to be, with renovated equipment adapted to the Mallorcan chain’s brand.


Meliá Lloret de Mar, a 5-star restyling


The new Meliá in Lloret has 200 rooms, two outdoor swimming pools surrounded by exuberant vegetation, a sundeck, a wellness area with a gym and a spa featuring revitalizing treatments, relaxing massages and a hydrotherapy pool. Blessed with privileged views, the Meliá Lloret de Mar is located just 20 km from several golf courses in one of the most beautiful and quiet areas of Lloret de Mar, next to the Casino and the Theatre.

It occupies a vast outdoor expanse measuring 50,000 sq m, with gardens and rooms for social events. This hotel has been renovated to embody the purest essence of the Costa Brava, offering the best experience to all types of travellers. Indeed, the factor that sets it apart is the spaces it offers for organizing meetings, conventions, incentives and events of all kinds. A unique and special refuge by the Mediterranean with designer rooms and delicious dining spaces, including two restaurants, a bar and a pool bar. It is worth noting the opening of El Freu, an emblematic restaurant that was already operating in the old Gran Hotel Monterrey, now converted into Meliá Lloret de Mar, which maintains the same line of gastronomy for which it stood out.


ZEL Costa Brava, a retreat full of peace and nature


With an architecture integrated into its natural surroundings, the ZEL Costa Brava, in Tossa de Mar, offers visitors an active wellness experience with a variety of relaxation activities, including the spa with a large heated pool, Turkish bath, sauna and a wide variety of treatments. In addition, it has a complete gym and the possibility of practicing up to 46 different sports activities: court sports such as tennis, football-tennis, basketball, hockey, table tennis, beach volleyball or water polo, and outdoor activities like Nordic walking, jogging, cycling, trekking or crossfit and yoga, not to mention pilates, dance or jiu-jitsu training and water sports at sea and in its 25 sq m semi-Olympic pool.

The hotel, which has 214 rooms and suites with sea, mountain or garden views, is located in an area that exemplifies the perfect fusion of ancestral culture with the extraordinary beauty of the local beaches and steep cliffs, filming locations for classic Hollywood films such as “Pandora and the Flying Dutchman”. Local attractions include the castle of Tossa del Mar, the Vila Vella (“Old Village”), the Roman villa of Els Ametllers, or some of the most “instagrammable” corners of the entire coast. A seductive retreat a few kilometres from Girona-Costa Brava International Airport and less than a hundred kilometres from Barcelona.

The hotel has a large meeting room that can be partitioned into three separate spaces for events and complementary team-building activities. It is a space well worth taking into account by event organizers and companies in the MICE sector.

In this regard, the hotel will have a Beach Club in Cala Giverola offering up the best Mediterranean cuisine, a unique gastronomic experience of the highest quality by the sea. It also features a lobby bar, a food truck, a beach bar and several terraces.

In short, Meliá Hotels International has burst onto the Costa Brava scene, expanding the region’s range of quality accommodation, gastronomy and spaces for meetings, encounters and events.
