Whether it’s waking up to the sight of the warm Mediterranean, lunching at Beirut’s hottest new boardwalk destination Zaitunay Bay or taking in a night-time panorama of the glittering skyline from the highest perch in the city, guests staying at Four Seasons Hotel Beirut will find themselves ideally based to enjoy the Lebanese capital – the quintessential summer destination in the Middle East.
With summer 2012 promising a packed line-up of festivals, concerts and exhibitions – in addition to its already legendary nigh life – there couldn’t be a better time to discover the best Beirut has to offer.
The much anticipated re-opening of The Roof at Four Seasons Hotel Beirut – the city’s highest lounge bar at 119 metres (390 feet), offering wraparound views of mountains, sea and cityscape – marks the start of the summer season. The Roof comes into its own this year with an upgraded set up featuring elevated perches to make the most of the views, a private area by the pool and sunset-facing seats. The clubby, urban haunt serves up a delicious Asian tapas menu, an extensive drinks list and live DJs spinning the latest tunes every night except Mondays.
Guests living it up during the long nights of summer can also enjoy leisurely afternoons and evenings by the water’s edge, with Beirut’s most happening new lifestyle destination Zaitunay Bay located just across the street from the Hotel. The lively promenade is home to an exclusive yacht club, outdoor dining outlets and stylish boutiques, bringing back to life the city’s hey day as a Mediterranean party town.
With an unbeatable line-up of global greats from the world of music including The Cranberries, Evanescence, Chris De Burgh, Pitbull, Jose Carreras and Red Hot Chili Peppers all set to descend on the city this summer alongside Lebanon’s packed summer festival line-up including The Beiteddine Festival, Baalbek International Festival, Byblos International Festival and the Zouk Mikael Festival, the Hotel’s well-connected Concierge can help guests book the most sought-after tickets, as well as offer the inside scoop on the city’s must-visit destinations.
“Beirut is where everyone wants to be over the summer and Four Seasons Hotel Beirut is the place everyone wants to stay at when they are here. Apart from being home to one of the city’s most iconic lounge bars, our location along Beirut’s most sought-after stretch makes us the best address in town,” Stefan Simkovics, general manager, Four Seasons Hotel Beirut.
Adding to the Hotel’s stellar summer credentials is its Experience More Package, offering guests extra value in the form of credit that can be spent on food, beverages and spa treatments during their stay.
