Both family-friendly properties will showcase Melia Hotels International's recently launched Destination Inclusive concept, under which a selection of activities and experiences outside the hotel are also included in the stay.
Currently, the Paradisus by Melia portfolio features 10 all-inclusives located throughout Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

The European announcements come amid a period of rapid expansion for Melia Hotels International, with the company concurrently detailing plans to open the Ngorongoro Lodge, a Melia Collection Hotel in Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater volcanic area this coming June, and the Palazzo Cordusio, a Gran Melia Hotel in Milan in the third quarter of 2023.
