Swanlake is a place where hosts and guests will forget their everyday problems, embrace the warm atmosphere of the land and let go into that beautiful dream where nothing else matters.
Located in Mar Moussa- Al Douar, away from the traffic and pollution and into a detoxifying new realm, twenty minutes by car from Beirut using Baabdat- President Emile Lahoud Speed Highway, Swanlake is a picturesque romantic natural outdoor venue, 10,000 m2 of rocky forest on a 70 m high sheer, overlooking untouched green mountains, valleys and the glazing Mediterranean Sea. The challenge of such project, is the emergence of nature and the landscape architecture adapting to climate change making the venue not only ephemeral and seasonal, but also an artefact in the sector of Metn that attract visitors during all seasons for various activities.
