Marriott International, Inc., is to open its first hotel in Libya, the JW Marriott Hotel in Tripoli. Perched on the shores of the Mediterranean, the 5-star hotel features 370 guest rooms and suites, stylish lounges and restaurants, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and the delights of the Saray Spa.

All rooms and suites are equipped with luxurious JW Revive bedding, cable TV, high speed internet, mini bar, safe and an en-suite bathroom with luxurious soaking tub and separate shower.

The hotel’s specialty restaurants offer the finest indoor and al fresco dining options.

Safara restaurant serves the diverse tastes from around the Mediterranean in a chic environment. With its charcoal grill, wood-fired oven, griddle and spit-roast, it conjures the atmosphere of a vibrant spice market.

In contrast, the Riviera captures the serenity of a seaside villa in Southern France. Delicious Provencal dishes are served in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, with light and airy rooms and a focus on seafood.

Hovering above the city, Singapura serves traditional pan-Asian cuisines within modern surroundings. The vast organic spaces combine mixed timber flooring and natural stonewalls with lively flashes of magenta and lime, creating a truly inspiring dining experience above the city of Tripoli.

From an intimate board meeting to a global conference, the impressive ballroom caters to all occasions. The 1200 square meter room can be divided into four sections, allowing a flexible approach to the space. Further event space includes three meeting and three conference rooms, suitable for every kind of occasion.

Made for the modern traveller, the sleek design of the Saray Spa and Health Club seamlessly blends sweeping curves with bold straight lines. For total reinvigoration, the Health Club features a fully equipped fitness centre, sauna, Jacuzzi and 23-metre lap pool area complemented by the delightful clarity of the Saray Spa with its tempting menu of Middle Eastern treatments and therapies.

The JW Marriott Hotel Tripoli will open its doors on February 15, 2011.
