The Gran Meliá Xi'an Hotel, the second hotel for the company in China after the opening of the Gran Meliá Shanghai Hotel in 2009, is located in New Qujiang district in Xi'an. It will open in 2013 and will have 419 rooms, two restaurants, a bar, spa and convention centre. 

Xi'an has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in China since the discovery of the Terracotta Army in 1974.

The Meliá Danang Hotel will open in December 2012 and is located on Non Nuoc beach on the outskirts of Danang. The hotel will feature 150 rooms including 10 villas, a restaurant, bar and spa.

Meliá Hotels International vice president and chief executive officer Gabriel Escarrer said: "These new projects will help us lay the foundations for achieving a much larger presence on the continent. The response of this region to the Meliá experience has been outstanding, and these new hotels will allow us to reinforce the meaning of our brand, our services, our know-how and the reliability we offer in two countries of historical importance in Asia."
