"Reflect, Rejuvenate and Relax."
I loved everything about liPHe. I went there wanting to see Lebanon and take a moment for myself. Amal, Samar and Barb went above and beyond my expectations. The location is perfect for reflection, yet you are close enough to see many beautiful sights that the North of Lebanon has to offer. Samar will arrange anything you can think of and Amal will make sure you are never hungry. I ate some incredible food and they were even able to show me how to make some of my favorite foods more body 'friendly':) I lost weight, saw a beautiful county and most of all, made life long friends. I will be back before the new year just to maintain this wholesome feeling. It is a great retreat for beginners or advanced as the yoga instructor Barb is out of this world with her classes and can cater to anyone. The rooms are very comfortable and private; the main areas feel just like home. I honestly cannot recommend this place enough...do yourself a favor and check it out. Thank you again for showing me an amazing time....big kiss, A

What a stunning and wonderfully relaxing place LipHe is! Samar and Amal were so incredibly welcoming, and everything was tailored just to me. The location is just beautiful and a perfect place to relax and switch off. I loved all the activities Samar and Amal arranged for me, but also thoroughly enjoyed just relaxing by the pool overlooking the hills. The food is imaginative and completely delicious, and I learned a lot about nutrition and wellbeing that I am determined to apply back in 'normal' life too. Thank you Samar and Amal for such a fabulous few days! Hope to return very soon.

"My most relaxing retreat from a woman who has been to many."
The food, massages, yoga, sauna, talks, everything. The scenery is stunning. Big comfy bed. Great rooms. Cooking lessons. Green peas fresh from their garden. Excellent staff. Everything was perfect. Exactly what I needed to unwind from a stressful job.

They really make you feel you're at home...the food is amazing (all home cooked even the bread!). the whole place is a real gemm, rooms are amazing, the pool, the view....if you're looking for a quiet and healthy retreat 1h from beirut this is the place. I love it and can't wait to get back!!

I was honored to be the first overnight guest there for a couple of nights. The Hosts, Samar and Amal are exceptionally pleasant, and serious about making sure you have a relaxing stay. The educational information they provide you with as a background to the healthy eating is extraordinary! I was even welcomed to cook with them and learn how to make healthy meals! I truly recommend doing yoga there where nature is right there in front of you! Truly breathtaking! Never have challenging yoga poses become more doable!
The experience was holistically enriching, the food exquisite, the infrared yoga which melts away years of toxins not to mention it burns 600 calories in just 30 mins! You have a "Grade A" experience in everything you feel, see and taste. The timber bungalows keep you warm even when it's thundering outside and the panoramic view from your bedroom makes you feel at one with nature yet from the A class comfort of your room. Not to mention the bedding materials that wonderfully soft enabling you to melt into your dreams.
I cannot begin to express what a turnaround experience 2 nights and 3 days were for me. My bungalow's name was "Balance". That was what I was seeking and I received that and a lot more!
