A couple of weeks ago, our team jetted off to Beirut for a business trip. We added a bit of pleasure in there too, of course! The aim of the trip was to confirm a Wedding venue that we are working on for April 2017, which is the beautiful Eau De Vie room at the top of the Phoenicia Hotel.
We stayed at the Phoenicia, where we receive discounted room rates thanks to U&I Concierge's The Card.
We arrived at around 8.30pm, so we didn't have time to do much on the first evening. We headed straight to the Phoenicia lobby bar and lounge (obviously!) and had a drink or two, which was extremely relaxing, especially in the gorgeous surroundings.
The following morning, we woke up to an incredible breakfast in our rooms. The room service menu is extensive, with a huge variety of options, from English Breakfast's, to Continental Breakfast's, Healthy Spa Breakfast's, Porridge, and traditional Lebanese cuisine.
Later, we met with one of the Event Managers of the Phoenicia. We discussed next years Wedding, and then we were shown around the Eau De Vie suite upstairs. The Eau De Vie is a restaurant at the very top of the hotel, which can also be transformed into the most beautiful event space for up to 220 people. For us and our client, this was a perfect option.
As soon as you come out of the lift, you walk straight into a gorgeous reception area.
The main event space is stunning, with chandeliers hanging and soft velvet furniture. We loved the colour scheme that they used, too - purple and silver added to the already luxurious feel.
