Raouché Arjaan by Rotana extends skyward, overlooking the clear blue sea. The 4-star hotel is perfect for a break by the coast while staying within the bustling city. The world-renowned Pigeon Rocks are just steps away. The short distance to Downtown Beirut, the BIEL exhibition center, and bustling Rue Hamra, also makes it ideal for business people. A shuttle leaves daily to Beirut Souks and the airport is a mere 15 minutes away.
Apartment, studio or suite? There are 175 to choose from, all are stylishly spacious; some have a kitchenette for that self-contained home experience. Long or short stay, the hotel’s service has a ‘can-do-attitude.’ Nothing is too much for our guests. All you need to do is ask.
The mouth-watering cuisine from our three venues is as iconic as the location. There’s also our in-room dining facility too. Head to the Aquarius Pool Bar & Terrace on the rooftop, mingle with glitterati at the Bella Vita Café & Terrace, or dine all day at Murjan Restaurant & Terrace. The spacious meeting and event rooms have natural light, and the hotel facilities are available for use, to ensure a successful event.
The rooftop pool on the 17th floor overlooks the Mediterranean. There’s a gym too, where our trained professionals at the Bodylines Fitness & Wellness Club will be right by your side.

Lebanon may be small but its offerings can only be described as big: archaeological treasures, stunning nature, world-renowned hospitality. Dramatic mountain ranges overlook the coast from where the ancient Phoenicians once set sail across the Mediterranean. The country surrenders centuries-old architecture, modern skyscrapers, a wealth of antiquities, and outstanding natural beauty. Clearly, it’s a place like no other.
Ancient civilizations have left their mark on Lebanon: Persians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Phoenicians. The ancient Greeks named it Phoenicia, a cosmopolitan land on which urban centers dotted the coastline. The arts were sophisticated and maritime culture prospered for more than a 1,000 years. Its people roamed the seas, skilled in trade, and founded trading colonies in North Africa and Europe.
Lebanon today is as refined as ever. Regionally, it’s the center of the arts, education, business, nightlife, and hospitality. Hardly a week goes by without the world’s press praising the country’s touristic offerings: its designers, gastronomy, nightlife. Globally, Hollywood’s red-carpet is littered with A-list stars wearing haute couture by top Lebanese designers. The country is spoken about worldwide, not for the reasons that once plagued it, but rather for its joi de vivre.
Beirut never sleeps. Its tangible and contagious energy is the oxygen keeping this Levantine city alive and kicking. There is so much to explore, from the city’s rich heritage to its modern malls, museums, restaurants, and nightlife. Each district has a unique offering. Take Raouché, on which the Arjaan by Rotana is perched. The area is steeped in history. Ancient flint and stone tools were unearthed here and are now showcased at the American University of Beirut’s Archaeology Museum. Today, the corniche provides a refreshing location for crowds to stroll and jog as they gaze across the clear blue Mediterranean Sea. Raouché, perfect for those long weekends.
