by Emir Beshir the Second
Deir al Oumara is a charming Lebanese mountain hotel nestled in the heart of Deir al Qamar. The edifice, originally built in 1827 by Emir Beshir the Second for his first advisor before being transformed into a boarding school in 1908, is today classified as ‘Historic Hotel’. This heritage is meticulously cared for by the key keepers of the property and infused in the guests’ journey. The property offers 19 rooms, each with a distinctive cachet and feel. We thrive to offer rooms that breathe the mountains atmosphere and the intrinsic coziness of the region.
Apart from the marvelous leisure activities that the Chouf region offers in Ecotourism, we have conceived the hotel to be more than beds and a roof, where families and friends are cajoled all along their stay.
You can ask for our extra activities offered by the hotel.
At Deir al Oumara, we are passionate about what we serve. Being in synergy with the delicious flavors of local production, and fervent disciples of the culinary arts, we propose to you Soufrat al Oumara, a one-of-a-kind contemporary Lebanese restaurant. Using the simple and the fresh, our aim is to innovate and surprise your palate with the taste of the local and the revisited.
Overhanging one of the most beautiful and well-preserved regions in Lebanon, Deir al Oumara’s 200-people wedding venue unites the authentic with the festive and the grandiose with the serene. We hint you to tie the knot with your significant other in a venue that matches the uniqueness of the occasion.
Across Deir el Qamar’s narrow cobblestone streets, among former palaces and religious landmarks stands Deir al Oumara, a hotel rich in history and heritage.
Located a charming walk away from the main public square, the historic hotel houses eighteen converted rooms and suites, as well as a contemporary Lebanese restaurant, Soufrat al Oumara.
It is a unique venue for weddings and festive occasions with a breathtaking view of the Lebanese chouf mountains and offers multiple business or leisure activities on-site as well as across the region.
Classified as a Historic Hotel by the Ministry of Tourism, Deir al Oumara was originally built two centuries ago during the Emirate of Mount Lebanon; and it hasn’t stopped evolving ever since.
First a palace for important political decisions between a Great Emir and his advisor, then various educational institutions expanding high standards across the region, it wasn’t until 2014 that Deir al Oumara was turned into a hotel for friends and families to bask in its heritage and be part of its ongoing story.
