Meliá Hotels creates new theme park resort
theme park in Majorca
majorca—Leading global Majorca hotel chain Meliá Hotels International has entered into a “joint venture” with the owners of Katmandu Park in Magalluf to create Majorca’s first theme park resort.
Last summer, Meliá Hotels unveiled an ambitious project to upgrade the resort by creating the Calvia Beach Resort which will include four upgraded hotels offering a new lifestyle in the resort and fresh and exciting entertainment.
This week, the hotel chain has announced that it has linked up with Producciones de Parques, which own Katmandu Park, to create the Sol Katmandu Park and Resort.
The resort will involve the Sol Magaluf Park Hotel, which is right next door to the Katmandu Park, and will be transformed into an interactive new generation hotels just metres from the beach.
Both companies want to continue expanding and diversifying in Magalluf and eventually, the hotel will be reformed into a first class hotel over the coming years.
Renovate or die
Katmandu Park was founded in 2005 by a small group comprising a Majorcan businessman, who opened Golf Fantasia in 1988, and a company which specialising in creating American-style attractions .
All this is part of Meliá’s mission to reform and renovate Magalluf , a resort which they fear will die if such action is not taken.
Meliá has already opened its wave house this summer and Nikki Beach, come the start of next summer, the Calvia Beach Resort will really begin to take shape.
And, in order to ensure the project runs smoothly, the government has declared it of “Tourist interest” which means red tape will be reduced to a minimum.
