Le Gray is one of Beirut’s trendiest hotels, and a hotspot for delectable cuisine and exciting nightlife. The site of the 5-star hotel at the heart of the city is one of the best locations in Beirut, with stunning views of the sea, the city, Beirut’s port, ancient ruins, and bustling city life all around.
The hotel has 87 rooms and suits over four floors, with spaces designed to soaked in as much warm Mediterranean sun as possible. It was designed by Australian architect Kevin Dash, with interiors by Mary Fox Linton. Inside, the hotel’s contemporary décor is refined, inviting, and understatedly luxurious, and its classy design is strewed with magnificent orchids and impressive paintings.
Gordon Campbell Gray, Chairman of CampbellGray Hotels and creator of Le Gray says he only opens hotels where he’d like to wake up – and he loves waking up in Beirut! Although he was initially hesitant about starting a project here, he was asked to visit and said he had one of the best weekends of his life in Lebanon, explaining that it was beautiful and the weather was great.
Le Gray was designed purely for Beirut, and maintains a uniqueness that makes it look different from any other place – this is not a “cookie cutter” hotel. It’s fun, sexy, and modern, the way Gordon Campbell Gray see Beirut! Le Gray is decked throughout with an extraordinary art collection personally put together by Gordon Campbell Gray, who travels the world buying art. At the same time, the hotel offers guests peace, quiet and a bit of solitude – things that are often hard to find in a busy city.
Food and drinks at the hotel are delicious and intriguing. Starting from the bottom, Gordon’s Café has street access and a friendly ambiance with affordable and delicious food. The favorite at Le Gray is Indigo on the Roof, with its exquisite food and breathtaking views of the city. The hotel’s contemporary cigar lounge is also very popular, with huge windows, a terrace and a selection of hand picked books, not to mention cigars and drinks.
Up on top lies the glamorous infinity pool with wonderful views of the mountains, and at night turns into Cherry on the Rooftop, offering a younger crowd some exciting drinks and nibbles, great music and stunning views. Bar 360 is recently reopened for the winter months, and it’s always busy with great music and more stunning views of the city, as well as a spectacular chandelier cascading down the middle through several floors.
Le Gray boasts a health club and spa offering facials, massages, scrubs, packages, as well as a gym and a beauty salon. That’s not to forget that the hotel also caters to clients with business needs.
With its sleek design, exquisite detailing and delightful colors and patterns, Le Gray is simply luxurious. Gordon Campbell Gray believes luxury is ultimately simplicity, it’s about space, time and calmness – three things you will definitely find at the hotel.
