A cosmopolitan, multi-faith city with a sophisticated nightlife and remarkable architecture, Beirut is reclaiming its label of being “the Paris of the Middle East”, and Le Royal Hotel is one of its prime resorts.
“Le Royal Hotel – a member of The Leading Hotels of the World – is one of the finest luxury hotels in Lebanon,” says Faten Abdel Ahad, the hotel’s Marketing Manager. “Located in Dbayeh, Lebanon’s newly developed downtown, and only 15 km from the airport, it boasts stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and features a wide range of rooms and suites, dining experiences and recreational facilities.”
The 230 guest rooms and suites are equipped with every modern convenience. The super-elegant Royal Suites on the 12th floor foster a unique sense of exclusiveness and tranquillity, with splendid architecture, extravagant furnishings and spectacular ocean views. Covering an area of 225 square metres each, the suites comprise a vast master bedroom, a large dressing room, two living rooms, a dining room, furnished balconies, and secretarial and butler services.
“Award-winning gastronomy is an important part of our hotel, offering the best of Mediterranean, continental and local cuisine,” says Faten. Le Jardin du Royal, Titanic Restaurant, Diwan Shahrayar and Ikebana Night Club are the property’s main dining outlets.
“The Mediterranean has a magical quality that makes you feel good about yourself,” says Faten. “This is why Le Royal is dedicated to wellness in all its forms. Our impressive, three-storey spa has won several excellence awards.” With a dazzling indoor pool overlooking the sea and the only authentic Turkish hammam in the area, the Royal Spa has proven itself as one of the very best in the Middle East.
In summer, the beating heart of the hotel is WaterGate Aquapark. Spread over 20,000 square metres, WaterGate is a thrilling theme park that offers entertaining rides and slides, activities, swimming pools, restaurants and gardens.
As well as ski resorts and upscale shopping malls, Le Royal is close to the Casino du Liban, the historic city of Byblos and the prehistoric caves of Jeita Grotto, and is less than two hours from all parts of Lebanon. Indeed, it is the perfect base to discover the country’s treasures.
