The Carpet Swimming Pool at Mir Amin Palace

The outdoor swimming pool at the Mir Amin Palace hotel is famous for its unique mosaic carpet. Located just a few minutes drive from the historic Beiteddine Palace in Lebanon’s Chouf mountains, the hotel dates back to the 19th century when it was the residence of the Emirs.
