• Seasons


With its romantic Summer Bar, cosy Cellar Bar, signature Courtyard restaurant, Roman style pool, peaceful gardens & the cheery winter fire in Val's Brasserie, The American Colony is an ever rewarding pick for all seasons, all the time.

Al Fresco


Linger over a buffet breakfast in our Courtyard garden and sample an omelette made to order for you by our breakfast chef. Outside visitors are warmly invited to enjoy our morning treat as well. 

Regional & Seasonal


We always use the freshest seasonal and regional fruits to be found, including organic produce from our very own East House Garden.

Sizzling Summer


Barbecues, served outdoors during summer nights in the romantic Palm House Garden. Made to order, our Summer Bar charcoal grills feature meats of your choice, fresh cocktail, over-baked goods and much more.

Antiques & Edibles


Look out for seasonal fruits, herbs and flowers in our gardens, which are full of inviting spots where you can sit and relax at any time of year. Browse Munir’s shop for local antiques, treat yourself with a fascinating book from The Bookshop or enjoy a cappucino in the Terrace Café. Whatever you choose, you're very likely to feel in the right place, at the right time.

Tall & Cool


Our Summer Bar will set your mood with your favourite drinks & cocktails, a selection of draft and bottled beers, including Taybeh, the local Palestinian beer, and of course, wines from our celebrated cellar. With complimentary bar snacks to follow, there is no room for mistake.



Refresh yourselves after a long day at our Roman style pool, work out in the gymn, or settle back in the sauna.

Traditional Feel


Christmas and the New Year are very special times at the American Colony, and celebrated in traditional style. Festive meals and mulled wine are served in the Arabesque, the Cellar Bar and Val's Brasserie. We also observe Easter and Thanksgiving with special events. 

Hideway with Ambience


During the colder months, the cosy Cellar Bar provides a perfect winter hang-out and a chance to meet a wide array of fellow guests.

Winter at Val's


Enjoy a winter meal, a cup of coffee, or a drink and bar snacks, warmed by the fireplace in Val's Brasserie.
