As Meliá Hotels International continues to expand its presence in Vietnam, the Spanish Hotel Group has massaged its roots with an extensive renovation to Meliá’s first hotel in the country.

Meliá Hanoi recently completed an extensive makeover, renovating and revitalizing several key areas of the hotel, including the top suites, meeting and function areas, and fitness spaces. One of the most significant changes was a complete overhaul of all the property’s gastronomic offerings and restaurant interiors.

The launch of our new dining concepts has positioned our hotel as a gastronomic hub in Hanoi,” said Santiago Cabre, general manager of Meliá Hanoi.

Given our Spanish roots, stellar cuisine and a just as impressive atmosphere to enjoy a meal or a drink are essential. With our new design and restaurant concepts we’ve created just that.”

In the lively lobby area, Garbo Bar draws inspiration from the golden era of ‘50's Hollywood with its new sleek gold and emerald green bar counter and selection of classic cocktails. The Spanish touch endures with a delectable selection of tapas and Meliá’s signature Spanish-inspired afternoon tea.

Mosaico, Meliá Hanoi’s all-day restaurant deepens the hotel's European heritage with Mediterranean cuisine on offer throughout the day and designs on becoming one of the best international breakfast buffets in the city.

From delicately crafted pastries baked in-house to Spanish Iberico ham, and a healthy juice bar to more decadent dishes spanning a variety of cuisines, breakfast is a grand affair. New live cooking stations showcase culinary techniques in a modern, bright environment. A hanging garden and lush tropical plants feature throughout the space.

The former El Oriental Restaurant is set to emerge in October as Cham Restaurant serving sophisticated Cantonese dim sum and Asian noodle dishes in a hip, modern space.

The new chef de cuisine, Madam Lê Minh Thái, has 27 years of experience in the craft of dim sum and Cantonese cooking. She has worked alongside a number of Chinese and Singaporean dim sum masters to perfect her skills over the last three decades and will bring that wealth of knowledge to each plate at the new restaurant.

A new concept that combines the best of a sophisticated cocktail bar and luxury barbershop, The Ministry of Men (part of the House of Babaard group), also launched in the hotel in May. The masterfully mixed beverages and exquisite ambiance provide the perfect place for cultivating connections and networking.

The top two keys, the Grand Suite, an opulent 135-square-meter space and the Presidential Suite, an elegant space coming in at 168-square meters, were both re-imagined with more contemporary, regal furnishings, a fresh color palette of soft grays, taupe, creams and gold, new state-of-the art entertainment systems, and floor-to-ceiling windows that make the most of the impressive city views.

The Level Meeting Room, available exclusively for The Level guests, has completely new furnishings, along with more ergonomic chairs and artwork. The larger MICE areas, including the Grand Ballroom and its dedicated pre-function area along with the Thang Long Ballroom, have new carpets, furniture, and a new interior design with a crisp white color palette.

The Function Room space, ideal for intimate meetings, now features an entirely new interior with nature-inspired paneling framing the space. Meliá Hanoi has some of the largest meeting facilities in the city with two ballrooms and 10 function rooms and a total capacity to host up to 1,200 guests.

The spacious open-air swimming pool has a new deck and the fitness center has been remodeled with new cardio equipment.

Meliá Hotels International brings a wealth of leisure expertise to Meliá Hanoi to create the ideal bleisure hotel in the heart of this busy metropolis,” said Ignacio Martin, Meliá Hotels International managing director for Asia Pacific.

With the hotel’s unique location in the heart of the city and considering the growing interest in Hanoi as tourist destination, Meliá Hanoi is positioned to be the perfect hotel for travelers looking to explore the capital’s culture and history, while also experiencing all the comforts of a 5-star international hotel.”

The 306-room property, ideal for both business and leisure travelers, is located in Hanoi’s downtown, near government ministries, embassies, shopping areas and tourist attractions.
