EddeSands Hotel & Wellness Resort
Ranked #4 of 14 Hotels in Byblos

I went with my husband to Edde Sands last summer... very nice, very relaxing and also very glamorous. We also attended a wedding, breathtaking... a bit pricey I think but worth it in the end :)

First time in Lebanon, flew to Beirut - told to take "Flack Jacket". Not true, the war ended 20 years ago. Beautifull country. Cosmopolitan - very friendly. Went there for a wedding at Byblos Sur Mer. Just like France. October still 28 degrees. Sea still warm enough to swim. Stayed at the Edde Sands Resort - right on the beach - five swimming pools - 5 plus stars at 3 stars price (compared with South of France). Beautifull room, own private patio. Slight problem is that out of season all the resort restaurents are not open, but Byblos just down the road has many. Byblos - one of the oldest places in Christendom. Really nice. Beirut - getting back to what it was like before the war. Still some way to go - but could well be once again the Monte Carlo/Cannes of the Eastern Med. Pity about the flight costs - but when they come down then the Lebanon is most defintely a place to to see and visit.

Room Tip: You need US Dollars

We took advantage of a long holiday weekend and headed for lebanon. We're not much into the late night partying and wanted more of a low-key weekend which is why we chose Byblos over Beirut. We picked Edde Sands because it seemed like a good deal and I talked with some Lebanese colleagues who said it was nice.
We stayed in the e l'hotel. I wouldn't say that the hotel itself was anything special, but it was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Just a 5-10 minute walk to Byblos and you have access to the resorts facilities. We paid a little extra for a sea-view room which i would say is a MUST. It's what made the hotel so wonderful..watching the sunrises and sunsets and the big storms roll in (we went in November).
Also, the breakfast is AMAZING. The oriental/continental breakfast that is included is lovely--we ate down at the resort the first two mornings before we realized that we could have the complimentary breakfast served on our balcony which was quite a treat.
Overall a great place to just get away and relax a bit--I would definitely stay there again and will recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: Get a sea view room...definitely worth it!

This resort is one of a kind and certainly in Lebanon.
I have been here a couple of times, enjoying the experience particular in the Wellness and Spa.
The wellness menu is very elaborate and you can choose from a wide variety of treatments.
As a huge fan of the Ayurvedic way of treatment I was very pleasantly surprised that they have an Ayurvedic docor on site and offer Ayurvedic treatments! I booked an Ayurvedic treatment and it was fantastic. The atmosphere is calm and quiet, the ladies of the spa are kind and knowledgeable. I would recommend anyone to have a look at the Edde Sands website and their wellness menu. You will not be disappointed.

Exhausted by a grueling trip to Lebanon from India, I found quite a respite in this haven. The gardens, the privacy of my deck in front of our Bougainvillea room was a lovely buffer to the immense pool in front of us. The variety of restaurant was a delight as they were all better than the other, my favirite though was the Italian one. Tiramisu out of this world...The beach quiet in the early morning has been a nice venue before breakfast. Again food was too much, I must have put on quite few pounds. I had a ball and left Beirut rebuilt and relaxed.

Room Tip: walking distance to care for as the place is vast

I went to Eddé Sands on a business meeting, and stayed in the "é l'hotel" up the road from the resort. This 3-star hotel is OK, with big rooms and a nice breakfast area with sea view. Ask for sea facing rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors (1st floor has view on brick wall and electric wires). The service is quite bizarre, either excellent or really bad depending on who you speak to and what kind of request you have. The Eddé Sands resort is a real party place, with nice pools and beaches, and good restaurants. The private bungalows are expensive but really wonderful, with private rooftop terrace facing the sea. Be aware that there will be noise coming from the beach on weekends until 3 or 4 AM.
