The mesmerizing waterfront resort features 153 modern, warmly-decorated guestrooms, a dining area bathed in natural sunlight, event spaces and a collection of locally-produced art that is both forward-thinking and rooted in the country’s heritage.
At the hotel’s entrance, beige flooring has been cut to include a Rub el Hizb pattern, the eight-pointed stars, derived from the traditional Muslim symbol. From the top of the nearly 33-foot high ceiling, a shimmering water wall flows, capturing the essence of ancient ruins and symbolizing the mountains and the water that flow through them.
Guestrooms and suites are decorated with a combination of strong lines and geometric patterns, with architectural lighting highlighting the feature wall above the headboard–a direct reinterpretation of the cedar tree flower. Furniture handles are derived from the seed of the cedar tree, and are a continuous element throughout each room. The bathroom has a combined shower and tub in carved beige stone, another reflection of the location. Light slots are adorned with a glass Mashrabiya pattern recalling the screen design located at the bed.
