We generally jump when Rabih Kayrouz and Kamal Mouzawak tell us to. Their energy contagious and their talent inspiring.

Beit Douma the talented duos latest endeavour is a bed and breakfast in the Lebanese mountains of Batroun, bringing together old world charm and 21st century living.

Entrepreneur Kamal Mouzawak is recognized internationally for his passionate and original interpretation of good old-fashioned food. His farmer's market, Souk Al Tayeb, a pioneer in the field. His restaurant Tawleh equally synonymous with good food and good times.

Renowned Parisian fashion designer Rabih Kayrouz has received international acclaim for his collections, a cross between the quality of Jil Sander and the sensuality of Lanvin, Rabih's pieces are sought after by the sophisticated woman that appreciates quality but does not feel the need to flaunt it.

Put the two of these talents together and you get a fabulous combination of authenticity and luxury, in the way of a restored 19th century Lebanese mountain home overlooking the untouched village of Douma. Literally a little piece of heaven on earth after the chaos of a typically hectic week, beckoning our battered souls to the village's tranquility. Offering a much needed respite from our daily lives.

Add Lebanese hospitality to the mix and Beit Douma proves itself to be the ideal weekend retreat. The five bedroom boutique hotel offers fresh foods from the local Douma kitchen, served on the terrace overlooking the mountains. The grandiose vaulted ceilings and antiques adding an oriental splendor to your stay.

Beit Douma, is a uniquely charming story that integrates the simple yet priceless pleasures of our past into the fabric of our modern lives. Enjoy …
