The hotel is owned by Al-Iqarat Wal Abnia Co, which is owned by Nadhmi Auchi, the owner of Le Royal Hotel and Resort in Dbayeh. It will be managed by the international management chain Hilton. The property has been under construction since 2000. “Hilton was planning to manage this property before handling Hilton Habtoor Grand in Sin el Fil,” said Nather Auchi, Chairman of Al-Iqarat Wal Abnia Co.
Investment in the hotel has reached $160 million to date.
The site area is 1,715 square meters (m2), and the total built-up area is 23,000 m2.
It will include 158 rooms, three food and beverage outlets, three meeting rooms, a conference room measuring 84 m2, two spas, a health club, a swimming pool, and retail outlets.
The hotel is expected to create at least 200 job opportunities. “Key positions will be appointed in cooperation between Hilton and the hotel owners,” said Auchi.
