Considered the most luxurious snow resort at 2000 meters above sea level, the InterContinental Mzaar Resort & Spa is just over an hour away from Beirut. Despite its reputation as a winter resort, the Mzaar InterContinental provides entertainment all year round, with a multitude of indoor and outdoor activities as well as proximity to the Casino and to some major historical sites.
The property boasts 131 guest rooms and suites which come in three types: Standard Rooms – luxurious furnishings with a host of facilities such as safety deposit boxes, coffeemakers, and internet Deluxe Rooms – offering mountain or garden view, these are larger than the standard rooms and can fit an extra bed when needed for larger families Loft Rooms – attractive chalet-type rooms on the top floor with high, slanted ceilings that add a Swiss touch.
Excellent cuisine is offered at its many restaurants, from the fondues at Le Refuge to the international buffet at Les Airelles. Here is a detailed breakdown of the property’s food and beverage outlets:
Le Refuge – An attractive restaurant with a large terrace, serving superb fondues and other heartwarming dishes during the winter, plus a deliciously refreshing menu for summer
Les Airelles – open for breakfast
Kobe – The new born Japanese restaurant offering a wide selection of Japanese food and Sushi. Opens daily from 12pm till 12am
Al Hor tent - Mountain agro-tourism food with the influence of nearby villages and products, located right outside the hotel for a taste of authentic Lebanese flavors
Le Bar – right in the middle of the lobby, and operating day and night, this bar is the place to enjoy cocktails, chat with friends, and even network with colleagues
Night Club – A great choice for evenings on weekends and holidays, the Night Club plays the latest music and creates a party atmosphere for all those present.
Leisure-wise, the resort offers indoor facilities such as billiards, squash courts, a heated pool, a gaming area, and a modern fitness center, in addition to a shopping arcade and cinemas. Outdoor activities include mountain climbing, hiking, biking, rappelling, and rafting, as well as snowmobile and ATV (all-terrain vehicle) excursions to name a few. There is also Les Thermes du Mzaar, a 1,200m2 luxury spa with a range of treatments from facials and balneotherapy to pressotherapy.
