About Tamie Adaya

As a student of art, history, pop-culture, and politics, Tamie Adaya brings a distinctive viewpoint to her iconic Santa Monica boutique hotel property. Long a family treasure, the recently re-branded and remodeled Hotel Shangri-La is a reflection of Tamie’s palate—featuring clean, crisp lines, modern lifestyle amenities with a classic flair, an unprecedented attention to detail with a whimsical unpredictability that makes each visit a discovery in self-expression, escapism and pure enjoyment.
