Internationally acclaimed tennis player Rafael Nadal, in collaboration with Meliá Hotels International, is set to make a grand entrance in Riviera Nayarit with their latest venture: Hotel Zel Sayulita. The construction of this picturesque hotel has already commenced, and it is slated to welcome visitors in 2025.

Situated right in front of Sayulita beach, the Rafa Nadal and Meliá hotel will offer 145 rooms and a central patio, providing guests with an unforgettable experience to unwind amidst the natural beauty. Moreover, visitors will have the opportunity to indulge in the finest regional cuisine at the hotel’s restaurant.

Gabriel Escarrer, CEO of Meliá Hotels International, expressed excitement about Zel’s debut in Mexico, marking the beginning of a thrilling global adventure that aims to infuse exclusive destinations worldwide with the essence of the Mediterranean.

The tennis world champion, who has already inaugurated the brand’s first hotel in Mallorca, Spain, assured that Zel is a “long-term” project that will have an “international tour”, making its arrival in the Mexican Pacific very significant.

Although the construction of Zel Sayulita is just underway, the hotel is expected to be completed and ready to welcome guests by 2025. Additionally, Meliá Hotels International is gearing up to open another hotel in Sayulita, the ME hotel, by the end of 2023.

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”
