Saray Nassib Basha

Lebanon, Saida


  • Clubs & Unique Venues


Built in the midst of the 19th century, the Saray is a perfect example of the magnificence of Ottoman splendor and opulence.

Belonging to the Joumblat family, it was commissioned by Nassib Basha Joumblat who envisioned a winter sanctuary in Sidon’s sunny climes. As with the architecture of the time, each feature and element was carefully crafted to add to the unique character of the Saray.

Its scenic location overlooking the sea and the city of Sidon gives it an exceptional cachet only 35 minutes away from Beirut. The Saray is recognized as one of Lebanon’s grandest homes.

The Saray’s gardens are a well-kept haven of 21,000 square meters. With exotic vegetation, grand oak trees and flowing water fountains, the gardens are a sight to behold.

Spread across the gardens, are the royal palm trees that were a gift to the family by the former Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser. Thanks to their exceptional landscaping and enchanting atmosphere, the expansive gardens are the perfect location for events taking place at the Saray.
