Lebanon, more than just a destination
The international press describes Lebanon as energetic and resilient, beautiful and intoxicating. It still holds true. The combined energy is a reflection of both the country’s turbulent and peaceful past. Its politics are as intricate and diverse as the landscape, where mountains rise to the heavens before plummeting to the clear blue sea, and valleys hold onto secrets never to be told.
History speaks of a seafaring nation where early inhabitants, the Phoenicians, traded across the seas to as far away as Great Britain. Ancient cities, most still inhabited, are dotted east to west, and north to south. All of this is remarkable considering the small size of this Levantine country in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Today, Lebanon has dusted itself down and moved forward in style. Its banking and business sectors are again admired worldwide. Its fashion designers are sought-after and feature regularly on Hollywood’s red carpet. Its cuisine is world renowned. The nightlife rivals that of any Western capital. And important ties with the Gulf and the West are being strengthened. It is clear that Lebanon is firmly on the map of tourists and business travelers once again.
Beirut is the capital of cool. It oozes individuality, style, culture, gastronomy, and a vibrant nightlife. The city’s rich heritage means there’s a lot for you to explore. Gefinor Rotana is a case in point. It sits on historical Rue Clemenceau, named in honor of Georges Clemenceau, former premier of France in 1917. Today, Clemenceau is host to international educational institutes and medical facilities. It is also home to the 55,000 square-meter Centre Gefinor business complex, designed by Austrian architect Victor Gruen. At the crossroads between Europe and the Gulf, our central location makes us perfectly placed for your business travel needs and those quick weekend getaways.
