Minor to open Oaks Beirut

BANGKOK, 18 January 2018: Minor Hotels will debut its Oaks brand in Lebanon later this year after signing a management agreement  with Allied Investment Group to operate Oaks Beirut.

Scheduled to open in mid 2018, the 110-key hotel is located in Sodeco, a commercial area of Beirut, approximately five minutes’ drive from the city’s downtown district and 15 minutes from Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport.

Previously operating as Hotel de Ville Beirut, the hotel is currently closed for a full refurbishment and will relaunch as Oaks.

Facilities include an all-day dining restaurant, a lounge bar & café, a rooftop pool and bar, plus dedicated conference facilities.

The brand’s growing portfolio currently comprises 56 properties across five countries – Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, India and the United Arab Emirates, with more than 6,000 guest rooms under its management.

“Beirut is a dynamic city with so much to offer and is widely regarded as one of the most influential trend setters in the region.” commented Minor Hotels CEO, Dillip Rajakarier.

Minor Hotels currently operates two Oaks properties in the United Arab Emirates – the 165-room Oaks Liwa Heights in Dubai and the 54-room Oaks Liwa Executive Suites in Abu Dhabi. In total across the Middle East region Minor Hotels operates 13 properties across four of its brands – Anantara, AVANI, Tivoli and Oaks – and has a further strong pipeline in the region across these four brands.
