Minor Hotels Group to Take Over Hotel in Beirut, Lebanon

Minor Hotels Group has signed a management agreement with Allied Investment Group to debut its Oaks brand in Lebanon later this year.

Scheduled to launch in mid-2018, the 110-key Oaks Beirut hotel will be located in Sodeco, a commercial area of Beirut, approximately five minutes’ drive from the vibrant central downtown area and 15 minutes from Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport.

Previously operating as Hotel de Ville Beirut, the hotel is currently closed for a full refurbishment and will relaunch as Oaks Beirut.

The hotel will feature a selection of guest rooms and suites, an all-day dining restaurant, a Lounge Bar & Café, a rooftop pool and bar, plus dedicated  conference facilities.

Joseph Nemer, Owner and CEO of Allied Investment Group, said, “Allied Investment Group is delighted to be partnering with Minor Hotels to bring their Australian-rooted Oaks brand to Lebanon, which I’m confident will be a success in this vibrant market. The refurbishment of the property is well underway and we look forward to launching Oaks Beirut later this year.”

Minor Hotels currently operates two Oaks properties in the United Arab Emirates – the 165-room Oaks Liwa Heights in Dubai and the 54-room Oaks Liwa Executive Suites in Abu Dhabi.

Dillip Rajakarier, CEO Minor Hotels, said, “For Minor Hotels adding Lebanon to our footprint has considerable strategic value and we are very pleased to be  partnering with Allied Investment Group to launch our first hotel in the country. Beirut is a dynamic city with so much to offer and is widely regarded as one of the most influential trend setters in the region.”
