By Andy Sambidge

One of Dubai’s best-known beach hotels has completed major refurbishment works as part of its operator’s $200 million revamp strategy in the Middle East.

Le Royal Méridien Beach Resort + Spa said in a statement that the redesign of 108 rooms in Tower One has been finished and bookings are now being taken for them.

Refurbishment of public areas has also been carried out as well as to two new international branded F&B concepts, Geales – a seafood restaurant and lounge by Concept Venues – and Zengo, a concept by celebrity Chef Richard Sandoval, serving Pan-Oriental fare.

The revamp, costing AED55 million ($14.9 million) is part of a comprehensive renovation strategy worth more than $200 million announced last year for Le Meridien hotels in the Middle East and Africa. More info
