Paradisus by Meliá Debuts in Europe with Paradisus Gran Canaria

This weekend, the luxury Paradisus by Meliá brand makes its debut in Spain with the Paradisus Gran Canaria Hotel. Located on the idyllic island of Gran Canaria, it provides 297 rooms and suites, avant-garde wellness facilities with the latest technology, and nine dining areas that offer the best of world cuisine and traditional local flavours.

The innovative brand vision is behind a hotel concept which is unusual in Europe, with a focus on connecting guests with the destination, local culture and the natural environment.

The exceptional Destination Inclusive® experiences that are included in the price of the stay change the definition of “all inclusive”, taking it to another level based on a connection with the destination and all the possibilities it has to offer.

The Paradisus Gran Canaria and Paradisus Salinas Lanzarote, the latter due to open on May 22, are destined to become the genuine “place to be” and an authentic revolution in hotel concepts in Spain for 2023.

The hotel is the first for the luxury Paradisus by Meliá hotel brand in Europe and offers an innovative experience that reinvents the traditional "all-inclusive" service through the addition of new experiences in tune with their destinations and making the most of everything they have to offer.

With the brand concept of “Embrace Your Nature", Meliá Hotels International now offers the chance for guests to immerse themselves in the culture of each of the destinations in which the hotels are located.

With hotels already operating in Mexico and the Dominican Republic, Paradisus by Meliá now makes its debut in Europe with the Paradisus Gran Canaria and the Paradisus Salinas, the latter due to open on May 22.

With the architecture, design and interior design led by the ASAH studio of the architect Álvaro Sans, Paradisus Gran Canaria has 297 rooms and suites in different categories, ranging from Premium Rooms to the superior Nikté and The Reserve, the latter with private hotel areas and areas for adults only.

All the rooms have a serene and relaxing ambience thanks to the surrounding natural environment, privileged sea views and a design in harmony with the beauty of its surroundings.

The design of the rooms at Paradisus Gran Canaria has a very organic look and feel, with neutral and relaxing colours accompanied by contemporary furniture and artisan decorations. There is also a focus on works by local artists which are prominent in each of the areas in the room. 

To comply with the commitment to sustainability made by Paradisus by Meliá and Meliá Hotels International, both the bedding and the amenities are 100% sustainable, recyclable and made using environmentally friendly materials. The products in the minibar are all produced by local artisans to reduce their impact on the environment.


While serenity and exclusivity await guests behind the façade of this hotel, outside its walls the brand is an ambassador for the place in which it is located.

Barriers are broken down and there is a seamless transition from the interior to the exterior that allows traveller to immerse themselves in the destination and discover the local culture while also enjoying the most luxurious all-inclusive service: a Destination Inclusive® Luxury Resort. 

Paradisus has gone far beyond the traditional ideas of the sun and beach to offer a new experience in a wonderful archipelago which is home to the eternal spring. Just like in all the other brand hotels, guests have all the Destination Inclusive experiences® included in the price of their stay. 

An innovative hotel concept in which the entire experience is imbued with local charm, from cooking workshops to excursions to the most secluded or iconic locations on what are known as the “Fortunate Islands".

The experiences on offer appeal to both adventure lovers, such as hiking in the “Sacred Mountains", and to travellers who want to find out more about local products and the traditions behind them.

Paradisus Gran Canaria opens a door to picturesque coffee plantations, distilleries and wineries such as the Finca La Laja, the Arehucas rum distillery or Los Berrazales.  

Apart from the fascinating opportunity to learn more about local cuisine and products included in the Destination Inclusive® concept, guests can also enjoy nine different dining experiences in the hotel with the finest and most authentic international and local cuisine.

From spaces for a relaxing, informal meal, to elegant signature restaurants serving the finest contemporary cuisine. There are also cocktail bar experiences, tapas and plenty of fun by the pool or alongside the sea available at all times.  

• Gastro Hall, 4 different gastronomic experiencies in one place.

• MasCalzone Italian Trattoria.

• Vibra Fun Restaurant & Entertainment.

• Ginger Grand Café (24-hour service)

• Peseta Local Speciality Restaurant

• Kanna Beach Club.
