To judge the situation in Beirut only by the headlines, it may seem as if a sleek and unapologetically luxurious hotel like O Monot ought not to exist there. But anyone familiar with Beirut knows that this is one of those places where life has gone defiantly on in the face of political tumult more or less forever. It remains one of the great cosmopolitan cities of the Middle East, and while it’s certainly worth doing your homework on the necessary precautions before traveling there, it’s still a remarkably vibrant place. And there’s no better area for experiencing that vibrancy than in the city’s hard-pulsing heart, the Saifi district. A quick hop from the central business district, it’s home to the best of Beirut’s nightlife, dining and high-end shopping — and, perhaps to state the obvious, the O Monot Hotel.

Stepping inside the hotel, the first thing one notices is the relentless, high-gloss sheen of the place. It’s a modern luxury hotel through and through, with sleek contemporary lines and gleaming surfaces at every turn. After the noise and energy of the streets outside, the guest rooms feel like sanctuaries of calm. Done in an airy minimalist style, they’re as comfortable as they are sleek-looking, with bright, immaculate white bathrooms and soothing, warmly lit bedrooms.

For all the restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood, O Monot’s three dining and drinking venues make a strong case for themselves. The tenth-floor O Monot restaurant serves up excellent views of the city along with artfully plated international fare, and the attractive little bar off the lobby maintains a low-key energy at all hours. But the real jewel is the open-air rooftop lounge, with its glass walls and panoramic views of the city and the sea. Populated by a seemingly care-free crowd slung across its low-slung couches and poolside loungers, it could hardly be further from the picture of Lebanon that we get from the news of the day.
