Considered to be one of the most luxurious ski resort hotels in the Middle East, the Mzaar sits at the foot of Mount Lebanon, offering views of the snowy peaks from many of its guestrooms. The rooms themselves are decorated with simple, classic furnishings and styled like Alpine chalets, many with balconies overlooking the ski slopes.
Though skiing is undoubtedly the main event here, other outdoor pursuits on offer range from snowmobiling to climbing, hiking, biking and rafting in summer. If outdoorsy isn’t your thing, there is plenty of sightseeing nearby, including the Fagra ruins, the Jelta Grotto, the Phoenician temple and the famous Casino du Liban.
The resort also maintains a world-class spa offering ‘European-style’ pampering like aromatherapy treatments, as well as medically-supervised relaxation and beauty treatments. The Mzaar is also known for its culinary options: choose from classic French, Italian and fondue or, for something a little different, sample traditional mountain cuisine around open fireplaces in the Al Horr Tent.
