The Massey Partnership is delighted to announce it is now representing Phoenicia Hotel. Situated in the heart of Beirut in Minet El Hosn, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the hotel has long been regarded as a landmark of Lebanon’s vibrant capital city.
Phoenicia Hotel is the Grande-Dame of Beirut, with a verve combined with above-and-beyond service that has appealed to royalty, world leaders, celebrities and jet-setters since it first opened its doors in 1961. The hotel is home to 446 rooms and an array of suites, including its vast Grand Royal Suite that offers tasteful grandeur, a library, gym, sauna and jacuzzi, a lavish living area and butler service.
Phoenicia is home to five restaurants, bars and lounges, offering a wide range of cuisine to suit all tastes, from international dishes with a Lebanese twist, prepared at live cooking stations at the Mosaic restaurant, to Italian classics at Rossini Osteria e Caffé. Amethyste Pool Bar & Lounge offers an array of international light snacks and an extensive cocktail menu, and the Cascade Lounge is open around the clock for drinks and snacks, making it an ideal location for gathering with friends or for an informal business meeting. Offering stunning sea views from its 11th floor location, the Eau de Vie bar and grill is available as an exclusive event space, and is designed with bespoke celebrations and gatherings in mind.
For those who enjoy a tipple, the hotel prides itself in its impressive selection of whisky and cognac, and has a wine list of over 1000 wines for its guests to choose from.
For those looking to relax, the hotel’s spa offers a range of treatments, and facilities including saunas, steam rooms, Jacuzzis, an aqua gym, and an indoor and outdoor pool for guests to take advantage of.
Phoenicia is an advocate for the artistic scene in the capital, with the arts an important part of Beirut’s cultural fabric. Phoenicia was the first hotel in Lebanon to showcase fine art from across the globe in one space and hosts a yearly photographic competition that culminates in an exhibition at the hotel.
The cultural sights, sounds, colours and tastes of Beirut can all be found within walking distance of the hotel. Downtown Beirut, the name given to the city’s historical and geographical core, is an example of how parts of the city have evolved and adjusted following the Civil War. Traces of Beirut are visible in landmarks such as the Roman ruins, the Al-Omari Mosque, built on top of the Roman baths, the St Elie Cathedral, and ‘The Egg’, originally built to be a movie theatre, but which has been uninhabited for over 35 years.
The city’s culture is showcased in varying ways through the museums in the capital. The Beit Beirut Museum and Cultural Centre make sensitive nods towards the past, whilst also looking at the country’s progressive future, hosting regular music and arts events. The famed Sursock Museum, once a villa to the Lebanese aristocrat, Nicolas Ibrahim Sursock now celebrates the country’s contemporary culture and local arts scene.
For the fashion conscious, the Saifi Village is the capital’s luxurious shopping district, but also a residential and artistic neighbourhood with shops and boutiques, galleries, restaurants and public gardens to explore.
Phoenicia Hotel is an icon of Beirut, showcasing excellent service as well as culture, vibrancy and sophistication of the capital that is all within a stone’s throw from its front door.
Room rates at Phoenicia Beirut are from US$300 (approximately £230) per night. This is based on double occupancy and includes breakfast, taxes and fees.
