Refurbished by Martin Hulbert to mark it’s 50th Anniversary, the hotel with its restaurants and terrace pool is the place to see and be seen. The clement sunny weather makes March the perfect time to visit this exciting destination where you can hit the shops or venture into the mountains as the wild flowers begin to blossom. After a busy day return to the SPA Phoenicia and indulge in a treatment by the cult spa brand ILA.

Devoted to beauty, rejuvenation and relaxation, the SPA specialises in Balneotherapy, Thalassotherapy, Ytsara, Ayurveda and treatments using the natural completely organic ILA products made from plants and minerals collected from the four corners of the Earth.

Dine in one of four fabulous restaurants – Lebanese, French and Asian among them – provide culinary choices to rival any in Beirut. A relaxing lounge and a chic bar offer cocktails and snacks. The all day dining venue Mosaic offers an ever changing variety of international and oriental buffets, daily live cooking stations, carving trolleys and special theme nights as well as the illustrious daily breakfast.
