A Relaxing Staycation in Gefinor Rotana Hotels Lebanon

Routine is one of the most annoying things that we get to deal with in our daily lives and especially in our country due to the limited activities we can do. We recently decided to do something new and exciting by having a staycation in Gefinor Rotana Hotel.
The greatest thing about this hotel is its location; a 3 minutes walk from the vibrant Hamra with its numerous restaurants, pubs and shopping outlets and a few blocks away from Beirut Souks; another amazing venue with cinemas, restaurants and shopping stores.
Gefinor Rotana can satisfy everybody as there is a room for each guest's need whether you want to stay with your family in a relaxing suite or have a romantic stay with your partner in a modern room with a beautiful view or just enjoy a relaxing king size bed. Gefinor Rotana also provides several activities for their guests from an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center and a sauna.
We were lucky during our stay because it was a Thursday and every Thursday Fisherman's Catch Night takes place at Gefinor Rotana Hotel. The exquisite seafood buffet includes a wide variety of international salads, main dishes, plus a wide selection of fresh fish, shrimps and lobster.
•The salads were very varied and consisted of many crab salads, octopus salad, many shrimp salads and 3 types of marinated salmon. The ingredients were very fresh especially the seafood! When it comes to quality, Gefinor Rotana Hotel is a master.

•The main platters included fried fish, lobster, jumbo shrimps, shrimp fajita, mixed seafood and many other hot dishes. Even before eating, the smell will make you drool.
•The dessert section is another world on its own because there was more than 20 types of cakes, tarts and other sweet creations without mentioning the oriental sweets. 

As we always state, Gefinor Rotana Hotel is known for using the best quality in food which makes their buffets excellent.
In order to sleep "guilt-free" we surely had to make a small visit to the gym where we burned not more than 10% of the calories we consumed. We were then able to enjoy a hot shower before heading to the comfortable wide bed dreaming about the breakfast.
The next morning we were very excited to wake up knowing that the pool and a royal breakfast were waiting for us and especially that we had a deep night sleep on the comfortable mattress.
At 7:00 we dived into the refreshing water overlooking the skyline of Beirut where 2 entities were highlighted: in the first plan, an old houses sector with lots of trees and in the background stood the modern skyscrapers.
After the refreshing morning swim we took a quick shower before heading to where resided our happiness: the breakfast buffet. It included lots of cheeses from all around the world, charcuterie, fresh fruits, fruit salads, yoghurts, viennoiseries, pastries, omelette and hot dishes.
We tried to eat as much as we could so we can start our day with lots of energy and positive vibes.
After the breakfast we headed up to our room broken hearted to know that our staycation is about to end but overwhelmed with the generosity and exceptional hospitality of Gefinor Rotana Hotel where memories were made.
Our stay at Gefinor Rotana was good enough to kill all the stress and fuel us with positivity though we remained in our city. Whether you are coming from abroad or want a quick getaway Gefinor Rotana Hotel will definitely give you memorable experience.
