Lebanon’s new LipHe wellness retreat ‘a first’ for the Middle East
POSTED 12 Jul 2017 . BY Tom Walker
A new, privately-owned boutique wellness resort in Kfarhata, North Lebanon, is being marketed as the first of its kind for the Middle Eastern spa market.

Surrounded by olive and pine trees in Lebanon’s mountainous Koura district, LipHe consists of a number of hand made, eco-friendly wood cabins, which house the accommodation spaces and all resort facilities.

Facilities include an infra-red sauna, yoga spaces, a range of massage beds and an outdoor pool.

Rather than a traditional, treatment-based spa, LipHe promotes a “naturally balanced way of life” as a key to wellbeing, offering various customised services for guests.

These include personalised, health coaching consultations; nutritional microscopy, giving an insight into guests’ blood composition; and a restaurant offering a whole food, plant-based diet programme and a choice of alkaline foods.

There will also be regular educational talks and demonstrations on healthy lifestyles.

Treatments are limited to two options of massages – body & mind balancing or deep tissue – but there will be regular yoga and aqua aerobic classes available.

LipHe was founded by twin sisters Samar and Amal Saba – both who are wellness practitioners. They say the resort is focused on interacting with guests and providing them with tailor-made, healthy lifestyle recommendations.

“The facility offers visitors an extensive range of options all designed to help them take some time away from the constant buzz of daily life,” Samar Saba said.

“The idea is to disconnect from life’s daily stresses, focus on peace and tranquility and enjoy the beauty of nature – all while learning about the alkaline lifestyle and how it creates a perfect balance for your overall wellness.

“The limited capacity of our space enables us to fully dedicate our time to each of our present guests. We are also keen on sharing our experiences with the visitors, we believe this is part of the holistic journey our retreat centre offers.”
