Mélia Hotels to launch another resort on the volcanic island of Sal in Cape Verde

by Helen Andrews | 30 Oct 2014

Mélia Hotels International is set to launch its new five-star Mélia Dunas resort on 1 November, with a signature YHI spa included in the development.

The beachfront resort on the island of Sal in the Republic of Cape Verde – an archipelago of ten tropical volcanic islands in the Atlantic Ocean – is under ownership of British company The Resort Group. Mélia will operate the 1,143-key property, which features 14 bars, five restaurants, a gym, 1,000sq m (10,764sq ft) of event space and the spa.

The YHI spa comprises an extensive water zone, with a hydromassage pool, experience showers, sauna steambath and an indoor relaxation area.

The resort’s leisure facilities also include five outdoor swimming pools for adults and two for children.

Hiking, windsurfing, kitesurfing and scuba diving will also be on offer at the resort, which sits on a coral reef home to a wide variety of marine life.

This opening will be Mélia’s second hotel on the island of Sal after the launch of the Mélia Tortuga Beach Resort & Spa in 2011. The operating company is also planning the Mélia Llana Resort & Spa on Sal, in addition to the Mélia White Sands on the neighbouring island of Boa Vista. All of the hotels will be owned by The Resorts Group.

Mélia recently announced the addition of two hotels to its portfolio: the Mélia Doha in Qatar, which is scheduled to open in Q1 of 2015, and the Gran Mélia Bintan – which will open in 2017.
