ARNAOON is a 300-plus year old village that existed during the Ottoman days and its name stood strong throughout the years keeping its geography rising on a hill-top overlooking the historic Msaylha Fortress along the Batroun Highway, North of Lebanon. The villagers back then decided to defend the glory of Arnaoon and refused to give it away to the Ottomans. Team Arnaoon also decided to cherish this heritage by reviving the old ruins and beautifying the landscape rendering it a heart-pounding venue that fully caters to memorable weddings and all sorts of occasions ranging from private dinners to corporate events.
