Sopot’s Mera Spa Hotel to Rebrand as Poland’s Second Marriott
December 30, 2016
The Mera Spa hotel in the coastal resort of Sopot will rebrand as a Marriott hotel in the middle of next year, becoming the American chain’s second facility in Poland.
This is after Marriott International signed an agreement with the Mera Spa’s owner, Vastint Poland, and operator Legend Hotels Poland to convert the hotel into a Marriott. The hotel is scheduled to reopen under the new brand in mid-2017.
“I strongly believe that the guests will welcome the planned changes with satisfaction and will continue to choose the hotel as a preferred holiday destination,” said Roger Andersson, managing director at Vastint Poland. “In June 2015 we opened a Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Gdynia and we are very pleased with our current cooperation with Marriott. I believe that the new project also proves to be a success.”
Janusz Mitulski, Director of Development for Central & Eastern Europe at Marriott International, said, “Based on our strong position in other European markets, we are pleased with the rapid expansion in Poland, and at the same time we are proud to have the opportunity to work with partners such as Vastint Poland and Legend Hotels. By bringing Marriott Hotels to Sopot, we can offer our guests the highest level of services associated with one of the greatest icons of our brand portfolio.”
The Mera Spa Hotel opened in Sopot in May 2012. The four-story 17,000-square-meter building will be adapted to the needs of the new brand. The new Marriott Hotel will feature 145 guest rooms, including five individually designed suites, in addition to standard rooms, “romantic rooms” and family rooms. There will also be two restaurants, an event center, and three indoor swimming pools at the guests’ disposal. A fourth pool on the rooftop will offer an exceptional view of the Baltic Sea. The complex will also include a spa and wellness zone with 35 treatment and beauty studios as well as a relaxation zone with features such as saunas and Jacuzzi tubs.
Michael J.J. Stenner, general manager of the Mera Spa Hotel, said, “Joining the Marriott International family gives the property a far better opportunity to enhance on standards and offers around the year, by taking advantage of this premium brand. Our central focus will obviously remain on our spa and hotel operations, for which the Mera Spa Hotel had gained a fantastic reputation over the last four years since its opening.”
