Radisson Blu Hotel, Biarritz

We turned a designer’s vision into rooms with a view.

When interior designer, Valérie de Tilly, created a new look for Radisson’s oceanfront hotel, HHE Highridge looked to Gleeds to translate that vision into a reality.

Our expertise helped add a splash of individuality, and air conditioning, to 64 four-star guest rooms spread over 2 floors during this one-year modernisation. 

Not all smooth sailing

A tight timeframe and a tight budget made this soft refurbishment particularly hard. Another curveball was thrown to our team in the shape of a request to use all the rooms for one day – smack bang in the middle of work.

Maintained heading

Despite the challenges, Gleeds enabled the hotel to open its new rooms to guests without any extra delays – and on budget. Some of the steps we took to ensure our client saved time and money included:

  • Reducing costs by splitting trades and using local contractors
  • Hiring a decorator we knew was right for the job
  • Ensuring quality was high first time to reduce snagging 



Biarritz is a European surfing mecca and considered one of the best places in the world to catch the wave.
