There are few landscapes as captivating and breathtaking as Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley. Fields of green stretch out like a scene from a painting, as far as the eye can see; a panoramic view that you can now take in at Beit Ammiq. This guesthouse is located in Ammiq, a tranquil village that sits on the eastern slopes of Mount Lebanon and overlooks West Bekaa’s fertile plains. The spirit of Beit Ammiq mirrors that of the village’s inhabitants: generous, welcoming, and committed to the land. It is an ideal spot to relax, contemplate, experience unforgettable natural surroundings, and have a delicious bite to eat under the warmth of sunshine or the glow of a starry-lit sky.
Beit Ammiq is part of the Souk El Tayeb project, which works to promote and preserve national heritage. The Ammiq project is a truly authentic experience that marries the agricultural traditions of the village's inhabitants with eco-friendly and sustainable practices. Located near the guesthouse, Tawlet Ammiq, is a space for guests to enjoy traditional meals and the most well-kept secret recipes, prepared with love and the freshest ingredients by local cooks.
The guesthouse comprises three rooms that are decorated to match the surrounding environment. Light wooden tones, luscious indoor plants, brightly colored artwork, and a flood of warm sunlight make the space an ideal home-away-from-home that the entire family can enjoy. Beit Ammiq is located near the Ammiq wetlands, the final remnant of the vast marshes and lakes that once covered the Bekaa Valley. The Wetlands are part of the Shouf Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a truly remarkable example of Lebanon’s diverse landscape. Guests can explore the surrounding nature through activities like hiking and bird-watching.
"Wake up to an incredible panoramic view over the fertile plains of the Bekaa Valley from the purpose-built eco-friendly Beit Ammiq guesthouse."
