It’s been almost a year since Hurricanes Irma and Maria struck Puerto Rico, and the island is back in business for meetings as several hotels continue to reopen.
The latest: Melia Coco Beach will debut on Dec. 15 after a multimillion-dollar renovation that combines the local culture with Melia’s premium services. The resort will now offer 486 rooms made up of 480 junior suites and six oceanfront villas. All rooms are housed in a two-story bungalow and feature a new design that incorporate daylighting and natural colors that reflect the property’s prime location amid reef-protected beaches and the nearby El Yunque National Forest.
Top execs will want to take advantage of THE LEVEL, Melia’s elevated service concept available in 126 of the junior suites and the six oceanfront villas. As part of THE LEVEL experience, attendees will have access to a private lounge featuring a pool and premium beverages and light snacks throughout the day. They will also get preferential bookings at the property’s restaurants.
Of course, meetings are a huge priority here as well. The property’s brand-new 41,280 sf of meeting and event space features the latest technologies, including video mapping. The space is ideal for a wide range of group sizes, especially with its expansive ballroom available in addition to a foyer featuring floor-to-ceiling windows.
“Following the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria, we are rebuilding Melia Coco Beach and showing our commitment to the island of Puerto Rico,” says Alvaro Tejeda, Melia’s regional vice president, The Americas. “We’re excited to welcome guests back for a beautiful escape on the island of Puerto Rico.”
