Beit Noun · The story

Beit Noun · The place

The guesthouse has a lobby, a library and a little café, including an enticing pool with chic terraces to chill and have a drink, like the cosy Le Bistrot de Zahra. Beit Noun is a wonderland of colours and lovely details throughout sensitively orchestrated by famed architect Galal Mahmoud.

Beit Noun · The food and products

At Beit Noun authentic Lebanese dishes are served made with fresh seasonal ingredients mainly sourced from the village and surrounding areas. Guests can also take home delicious culinary souvenirs, as the guesthouse sells products produced in Mechmech, such as Arak, honey, jams, zaatar, pickles and more.

Although each room is unique and has a specific colour palette, there are similarities between them. All the furniture has been custom-made and manufactured in Lebanon by talented artisans. It’s a true Lebanese experience, but it is not nostalgic. Galal Mahmoud, Architect (Lebanon Traveler)
