The Inter-Continental ski resort in Lebanon.

The Mzaar Inter-Continental Resort in Lebanon, the first top-class ski resort facility of its kind in the Middle East and Africa, has unveiled a spectacular new and exclusive balneotherapy spa.

The 1200 square metre spa, Les Thermes du Mzaar, directly linked to the resort, offers the latest in state-of-the-art facilities and professional staff, with 16 treatment rooms, a comprehensive range of body treatments, including electrotherapy, pressotherapy, algotherapy, thalassotherapy, jet showers, face-care, massage rooms, and analytic pool.

There are also two saunas and two steam rooms for ladies and gentlemen, a large gymnasium, as well as relaxation rooms.

Guests can take advantage of a variety of specially designed beauty and slimming treatments, all administered by the hotel's experienced beauty therapists, while the spa has partnered with Christian Dior and Thalgo for a range of beauty products and balneotherapy treatments.

"Our new spa further enhances the resort's image and increases our appeal to leisure and business travellers from this region and overseas," said the resort's general manager, Franz Rattenstetter.

Located at the heart of the Mzaar 2000 ski complex, the Mzaar Inter-Continental Resort, with 93 rooms and suites, has year-round appeal for business and leisure travellers. A new state-of the-art auditorium and a 100-seat cinema are major attractions for conference and incentive organisers.

Meanwhile, Six Continents Hotels is responding to a growing demand for top-class spa facilities by developing spas at a number of other Middle East properties.
