PALMA DE MALLORCA, Spain—Katmandu Park, a theme park located in Mallorca, Spain, has joined forces with Meliá Hotels International to bring a new entertainment experience to the island. READER COMMENTS
For the 2013 tourist season, the Sol Magaluf Park hotel, adjacent to the Katmandu Park, will be transformed into a Katmandu-themed hotel. Known as Sol Katmandu Resort, the project will offer the island's only hotel park resort experience. Guests will enjoy a variety of exclusive entertainment benefits in Katmandu Park including unlimited entry until 6pm on all ticketed attractions each day of their stay and a private gated entrance to the park from the hotel.
The theming of the hotel includes plans for special effects on the three facades of the hotel exterior and innovative architectural mapping encompassing the hotel's entire north-western façade for an evening event.
Both Producciones de Parques (the owner of Katmandu Park) and Melia Hotels International have received full support from officials of Calvià in this collaboration to bring more interest to the area. An exclusive advertising arrangement has also been announced to promote Katmandu Park and Melia Hotel brands over the next five years.
Scott Demerau, Katmandu Park Co-Founder and head of Producciones de Parques, says in an announcement, "We're excited that our exclusive partnership with Meliá Hotels International will allow us to create Mallorca's first resort concept experience for their hotel guests. Our collaboration is an important step in Mallorca's transformation to once again become the prime destination for Spanish and foreign tourists."
The Sol-Katmandu alliance is part of the initiative that Meliá Hotels International announced in October 2011 to inaugurate a major project in Calvià this summer. Known as "Calvià Beach Resort," the hotel and leisure mega resort is aimed at transforming the Magaluf area.
