What inspired the renovation of Le Méridien Ra Beach Hotel & Spa

Overseen by designer Julie Frank of JCF Studio, the redesign of Le Méridien Ra Beach Hotel & Spa in Tarragona, Spain, was inspired by the brand’s European heritage and mid-century modern design.

After the remodel, the hotel’s 144 bedrooms now have natural materials and clean lines. The color palette used included wood tones with blue and blush accents. There are artworks from photographers Gray Malin and Maite Caramés, as well as local artists Jordi Rollán and Emilia Castaneda.

Le Méridien Ra also transformed its Beach Club, and added a new restaurant, Lo Mam.
