Gemmayzeh, Beirut district

Arthaus Beirut is a boutique hotel nestled in the bohemian district of Gemmayzeh, at the heart of Beirut; a city whose vibrant art, food and nightlife are renowned. Arthaus is built on the grounds of a Roman Villa, of which vestiges can be admired in the garden. Discreetly tucked away from the bustling street life of Gemmayzeh in an urban oasis, the twenty-five suites and bedrooms span four architecturally distinctive buildings. Once a home to Zoe and Nabil, the properties have been restored to pay homage to their deep-rooted heritage. Arthaus fuses 19th Century Ottoman design with an eclectic and contemporary flair. The idyllic gardens with their expansive sandstone terraces and partially shaded swimming pool create an exceptional outdoor experience. 

Arthaus Beirut provides guests with an exciting all-day dining service, offering a wide choice of innovative, market-fresh dishes. The chefs take their inspiration from the changing seasons to create their menus, using mainly locally-sourced produce. Alongside the unique dining experiences on offer at Arthaus, their prize-winning mixologists will delight you with a vast array of signature cocktails and an extensive wine list, to be enjoyed in the gardens and in their various bars. Guests can also enjoy a sophisticated and extensive concierge service, offering a myriad of exclusive tailor-made experiences. 

Art is at the heart of the Arthaus experience. As passionate collectors, Zoe and Nabil Debs have spent decades selectively curating a broad collection of multi-media pieces. Divided internationally between the Arthaus projects, the majority of their visual art is housed in Arthaus Beirut. Together with fine art, Arthaus Beirut boasts a private collection of excellent condition archeological artifacts and rare books, as well as an extensive collection of local Roman mosaics.

Arthaus Beirut has won the Condé Nast Traveller award for Best Hotel in Lebanon, and was featured in the Condé Nast Best New Hotels Hot-List, and in the Travel and Leisure top 100 Hotel in the world.
