The Phoenicia Hotel was a dream for Najib Salha – a prominent Lebanese businessman – who in the year 1953, during Lebanon’s Golden Era, envisioned to build a world class hotel on the shores of Beirut. With a group of investors, Mr. Salha founded “La Société des Grands Hotels du Liban” and invited leading American architect Edward Durell Stone to fulfill this dream. Eight years later, in December 1961, the Phoenicia InterContinental opened its doors! Kings, queens, world leaders, celebrities, businessmen and the jet set alike, made Phoenicia Hotel their home away from home, contributing to the country’s golden age, an upswing period during which Lebanon was known as the “Switzerland of the Middle East”. After years of closure due to Lebanon’s tragic war, Mazen and Marwan Salha, Chairman and Member of the Board of Directors of “La Société des Grands Hotels du Liban” respectively, decided to rebuild Beirut’s gracious “Grand Dame”. As a Phoenix rising from the ashes, the hotel reopened its doors in March 2000. Again attracting the rich and famous from the world over, Phoenicia effortlessly retook its position as the region’s top-notch hotel.
