Splurge! Lebanon’s Five Flashiest Mountain Lodges

Maybe you’ve gotten some shiny new ski equipment for the 2012 season, and you’re looking for a flashy hotel to match. Maybe you got a holiday bonus at work and you’re feeling a little extra spendy. Or maybe you’re just curious about where the VIPs stay when escaping Beirut and heading for the mountains. Any reason is a good reason to check out the fanciest accommodations that Lebanon’s mountain resort areas have to offer. Here’s to living large (or just wishful thinking!)

1) Aux Cimes Du Mzaar

Mzaar’s newest premier hotel! Aux Cimes Du Mzaar is a mountain boutique resort that is supremely located at the base of the Jabal Dib ski lifts and the Jonction ticket counter.
Luxurious touches: balconies facing the slopes or the mountains, LCD TV screens in the suites.
Star rating: four stars

2) InterContinental Resort, Mzaar
intercontinental mzaar
A long-time favorite and Mzaar landmark, the InterContinental at Mzaar is Lebanon’s only five-star ski accommodation. With 131 units, it’s also one of the largest. The amenities here are everything you’d expect: bathrobes, slippers, fireplaces, and all sorts of rich details that make the splurge worth it.
Star rating: five stars

3) Etoile Du Mzaar Chalets
Etoile-du-mzaar-chalet
A smaller, more exclusive chalet with only three apartment-style units, Etoile Du Mzaar Chalets is synonymous with luxury. Gleaming surfaces, cozy stone fireplaces, tasteful and elegant decor — these chalets have it all. Make yourself a mug of chocolate in the kitchenette and enjoy a view of the Mzaar slopes from a private balcony.
Star rating: five stars

4) Cedars Palace
Cedars-palace-chalet1

At Cedars Palace are deluxe chalets near The Cedars that offer the refinements of modern design and comforts like private fireplaces, all in the midst of Lebanon’s famous cedar forests. Panoramic views included.
Star rating: four stars

5) Cedrus Chalets, The Cedars
Cedrus-chalets-living
Le Cedrus Chalets has claimed prime real estate at The Cedars resort — within eyeshot from the ski lifts, you really can’t get much closer than this.
Luxurious touches: Gourmet dining options, private fireplaces in each chalet, and room service
Star rating: four stars

Top 3 Reasons to Insure your Lebanon Adventure

Nobody likes to buy travel insurance. For all too many people, it’s one of those extra expenses that will probably be unnecessary in the end. Making the purchase is about as pleasant as imagining yourself in the various emergency scenarios where travel insurance might come in handy.

It would be way more fun to avoid the cost of travel insurance and spend the money elsewhere — a nicer Lebanon hotel, some new ski equipment, or maybe an extra nice meal out during your trip — but before you cut corners on travel insurance costs, take a few minutes to watch the following YouTube videos. It’s kinda funny to watch these epic fail moments when it’s somebody else, but remember that epic fails can happen to anyone, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.

The top 3 reasons to insure your Lebanon trip are all YouTube videos. Sometimes, the voice of reason isn’t loud enough, and it takes some very vivid images to remind us of our own limits.

Reason #1: ‪Top 30 Amazing Ski Wipe Outs – 10 to 1‬


 

Reason #2: Epic Fail – Snowboard Crash


 

Reason #3: Waterski Crashes


 

The moral of the story is: nobody is invincible, accidents do happen, and accidents in a foreign country can be even costlier than accidents at home. Don’t make us show you these videos in slow motion. Be prepared and give yourself some peace of mind while skiing in Lebanon. When you’re booking the rest of your ski holiday, be sure to buy travel insurance with us.

Flash Mob Rocks Beirut Airport

For the lucky bystanders who were passing through the Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport on March 5, 2011, a fun-filled flash mob erupted before their very eyes.

A flash mob is a public display of dance or performance, usually containing the elements of spontaneity, authenticity, and fun.  The goal is first to dazzle and delight the onlooking crowd in a public place, and then to claim Internet fame through viral video production.  In the Beirut Airport case, the flash mob was produced by Zoé Production Beirut and financed by Beirut Duty Free as part of their ‘Take Back More’ advertising campaign.

The Beirut Airport flash mob was fantastically coordinated and executed.  It contained a fusion of dabke (traditional Arab dance) and contemporary hip-hop style. Not only did the travelers headed to their Beirut hotels enjoy professional-quality entertainment on the spot, they also received a glimpse of traditional Lebanese music and culture. Our favorite bit is at 2:08 when the drummer twirls in with am authentic Middle Eastern bass drum.

Following the established flash mob formula, the performance ended with the dancers dispersing back into the anonymity of the crowd and walking away as if nothing had happened. This adds an extra layer of enchantment and mystification for the audience.  Poof! The magic spell of entertainment was broken, ending as spontaneously as it began. Well done, Zoé Production Beirut and Beirut Duty Free!

To make your own Beirut Airport experience more enjoyable, check out our new Beirut Airport Transfer service.  Book your airport transportation online in advance, pay less, and take the stress and hassle out of getting to your Lebanon hotel.
