Habib Hadid, owner of renowned seafood restaurant Le Phénicien, will be opening EL, a boutique hotel on Tyre’s seaside. It is expected to open by mid-June.


“Tyre is growing on a fast pace. Demand is high whereas supply is not at the same ratio. This is why the city is highlight appealing to investors, and will witness additional projects and investment opportunities,” said Youssef Hadid, co-owner.


The project, a renovated 200-year old house, will bring ten rooms, with a restaurant and a rooftop, all stretching over three floors, including a ground level. Architecture and design are handled by Mario Aouad in Beirut and the architecture studio Rudy Faissal in Milan. Investment in the project is USD 3 million.
