The hotel operator will bring three of its brands to Thailand; ME by Meliá, Paradisus Resorts and Sol Beach House, as part of an agreement with TCC Land Asset World.

Sol Beach House Koh Samui will open within the next two years, following a renovation of the current Imperial Boat House Koh Samui Hotel. The adult-only resort will have 209 rooms, as well as 33 boat suites or rice barges converted into accommodation. 

Paradisus Resorts will open in one of the top holiday destinations in Thailand, though the location is yet to be announced. The resort will be the first Paradisus property to open in Asia.

The ME by Melia hotel will open in Bangkok, the first of its kind in the Asian market.

The agreement between the two companies also foresees further growth in Thailand in future, in destinations such as Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui and Pattaya.
