Nestled in the beautiful Shouf region, Bkerzay promises a welcomed break from everyday life. We head up to the mountain retreat and reveal five reasons to stay at Bkerzay this summer. 



Bkerzay ecovillage is set amid glorious oaks, pines and olive trees. The 200,000-square-meter estate borders the magnificent Horsh Baakline forest, where visitors can reconnect with nature and enjoy various hikes that vary in difficulty. 


Bkerzay is known for its outstanding pottery, which is expertly crafted by local potters. Besides the boutique, which sells an array of stunning handcrafted ceramics, visitors can enjoy pottery lessons with Bkerzay’s master potter, Ahmed el Deif.


Guaranteed to satisfy even the most sophisticated palate, Bkerzay’s menu includes everything from oven-baked pizzas to juicy burgers and Lebanese mezze. Chef Walid Abou Hadir and his team ensure the highest level of quality and service, and you can be sure that host Zeina Salman will provide a personalized experience.

Rooms and comfort 

Comfort is key, and you can rest assured that Bkerzay’s 35 rooms are thoughtfully furnished, with cool and natural materials. It may come as no surprise that each unit benefits from glorious mountain views, and many feature their own private garden or terrace. 


Bkerzay is defined by the striking vernacular architecture of its stone building, which create a cozy village ambience. Guests can relax in the gardens, chill out in the swimming pools or take advantage of the Turkish hammam and body treatments at the spa.
