Gefinor Rotana in the heart of Beirut is the perfect address to explore the ‘Switzerland of the East’ in 2013. With an attractive ski package and less than an hour away from the ski slopes of Cedars Resort it allows for easy transition between an active ski break and a city holiday in the sun.
Skiing in Lebanon is perhaps one of the lesser known winter sport experiences. Yet, with six ski resorts, 46 ski lifts and with pistes totalling 30km in length a ski trip to Lebanon is a must for any adventurous ski enthusiast.
Conveniently located in the centre of Beirut, Gefinor Rotana allows for a varied holiday in Lebanon, allowing for days spent on the ski slopes or by the sea. Head to the slopes for the day, before un-winding on the lounger at Gefinor Rotana’s rooftop spa; complete with fantastic treatments and breath-taking views of the Mediterranean. Explore the sights of Beirut and spend the day wandering the ‘Beirut souks’ and taking in the stunning views over Zaitounay Bay. Then relax and enjoy dinner at Gefinor Rotana’s Olive Garden where the open kitchen ensures cuisine perfection.
This Spring stays at the Gefinor Rotana start from $100 (£61 approx.) per night for a classic room. The hotel offers a special ski rate including transfers, ski passes and ski rental for only $88 a day (£54 approx.) per person during the week and $110 (£68 approx.) on the weekend.
