River & Sea Resort,
Warm luxury meets with cool minimalism
On the coastline between Beirut and Jounieh, just 15 minutes from the capital, this new beach resort resides where Nahr-el-Kalb River meets the Mediterranean Sea. It is a sophisticated realisation of the Mediterranean beach resort experience.
The FF&E brief was to enhance the luxury interiors that encompass the natural beauty of the building’s waterfront location. The vision of the developer was to create a beautifully divided and landscaped complex where residents could lose themselves to wherever their mood took them and to allow them to enjoy their own space at their own pace.
A sophisticated Nature
Set into the picturesque natural coastline the Nahr al-Kalb was once the ancient Lycus River. In the 13th century BC a treaty concluded by Ramses II set Nahr al-Kalb as the border between Egypt and the possessions of the Hittites. The area was originally home to the Phoenicians with a maritime history that flourished over a thousand years and today has a rich culture of hospitality and a reputation for glamorous waterfront properties. The FF&E concept set out to encapsulate a sense of luxury with sophisticated elements of nature.
The interiors emanate understated glamour through engaging art and natural materials. The use of exquisite contemporary finishes offer a cool and minimalist palette and a sophisticated approach to the use of light makes the most of the mediterranean sea views.
