An amazingly serene and beautiful experienceI stayed here in August 2018 for 4 days and it was the most beautiful and serene experience ever. The lodges are lovely and the surroundings are peaceful and inspiring.
Samar and Amel the owners and hosts are two of the most amazingly lovely ladies I have ever met and they made the stay so wonderfully comfortable. In just four days they felt like family....I missed the place like home after I left....still do actually.
It was almost like time was standing still as I chilled in a totally relaxed surrounding. The yoga was amazing and Samar organised a phenomenal hike as well as visits to nearby villages, monasteries, and a nature reserve.
The food was wholesome and delicious and the environment was perfect for what I needed. I felt so relaxed and calm by the end of the four days I didn’t want to leave.
Can’t wait to go back again. I think for me this will need to be an annual retreat to recharge my soul, spirit, body and mind.
Thank you Samar and Amel for everything. You guys are the absolute best.
All in all a truly beautiful experience! The place and its owners Samar and Amal welcome you with warmth and make you feel at home the moment you get there! the food is amazing, the service impeccable and the energy and peacefulness beats it all..Loved it! (September 4 at 12:09 PM)
I can’t speak highly enough of this place! First of all, samar and amal are amazing hosts! They really make you feel you’re at home...the food is amazing (all home cooked even the bread!). the whole place is a real gemm, rooms are amazing, the pool, the view....if you’re looking for a quiet and healthy retreat 1h from beirut this is the place. I love it and can’t wait to get back!! (August 29, 2017)
Stunning Yoga and Wellness Retreat.I visited Liphe as a day retreat but you can get a range of overnight packages here. The 2 sisters that run Liphe are so warm and friendly. I am SO envious of what they have set up there. I felt so welcomed and more relaxed than I have felt in months. The setting is stunning, up in the mountains in northern Lebanon!! The facilities are fabulous with a lovely, good size pool and an infra-red sauna. The plant based food was cooked fresh and totally delicious. The yoga class I had in the afternoon was outside and was also wonderful. Don’t hesitate to go here! Can’t wait to go back. (October 2018)
