Situated in the Sabana Grande, the Gran Meliá Caracas Hotel is a spectacular five star property with amenities a-plenty and a few pleasant surprises too. A short journey from the Simon Bolivar International Airport, the Gran Meliá is centrally located to shopping and transportation.
The lobby of this hotel is truly magnificent! A grand marble and wood circular staircase sweep the eye upward to the wood-paneled sky-lighted ceiling. Crystal chandeliers accentuate the warmth of the massive room, while marble floors with wood edge accents, covered in large rugs with strategically placed classic furnishings, invite you to sit and relax. Plus there’s the convenience of being attached to the El Recreo Gallery shopping experience, putting designer fashions within reach of your arms (if not your wallet).
Very well appointed rooms and suites wrap guests in luxury with nothing left to chance. Accommodations are spacious, stylishly decorated in fine fabrics and fine dark wood furnishings. Curl up on the comfy chaise and snack on the fruit basket. Step out onto the balcony and absorb the sights, sounds and scents of the active metropolitan area that is Caracas. All rooms have a private Jacuzzi.
For exclusive and preferred service, Gran Meliá Caracas presents the prestigious Red Level.
After a long day shopping, sightseeing or in business meetings, let the soothing sounds of the swimming pool fountain relax your mind, body and soul. Swim laps in the pool, sit in the Jacuzzi or let the relief of a steam bath put you right. The spa at Gran Meliá Caracas also has sauna and select massage and body treatments available.
Four international culinary experiences await you at Gran Meliá. Each award-winning restaurant features a cuisine from a particular location on the globe. In the ambiance of its poolside setting with brightly colored décor, Prosciutto makes classic Italian cozy and comfortable. Mediterraneo brings Mediterranean cuisine to Caracas, where you can dine indoors or out in a quiet and elegant atmosphere. Poolside dining is also available. The best of Japan is offered at Sumire where you can feast on specialty dishes from the Far East as well as from a sushi bar and hibachi menu. Guests will find the fengshui environment refreshing and full of vitality. A taste of Caracas lives at L’Albufera where delectable European Spanish cuisine, tapas and wine are served in chic flair.
The delicious sounds stirring the senses is coming from the Piano Bar where the who’s who mingle over drinks in the posh setting of gilded accents, marble statues and crystal. You’ll want the night to last until the wee hours of the morning.
On a more careful note, while the hotel is in a relatively safe location, unfortunately after the sun goes down the area changes. It is not advised to go out unaccompanied after dark. The hotel secures all the entrances from 7pm to 7am.
