Introduction to Lebanon
Lebanon lies between the Mount Lebanon range and the Mediterranean Sea, offering a varied landscape of cedar-covered mountains and beaches. Multicultural influences lend a cosmopolitan aura to the cities of Beirut and Tripoli, while the Phoenician port in the village of Byblos reveals layers of ancient history. IHG’s family of Lebanon hotels ranges from luxury hotels and suites in lively capital Beirut to a ski resort in the spectacular mountain setting of Mzaar.
