Dusit has signed a new hotel within the historic city of Sousse, the third largest city in Tunisia.

The Dusit Thani Samara Sousse resort will be housed within a mixed-use development comprising a shopping mall of 26,000 sq m and an additional 350 residential apartments of high specification.

On the east coast of the country, Sousse is one of its most popular resort destinations. It is easily reachable from the international airports of Tunis Carthage and Monastir Habib Bourguiba, within one and a half hours and 30 minutes drive, respectively.

Sousse retains much of its medieval charm with narrow, winding streets, a Kasbah and a Medina. Sousse was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988, and over a million visitors enjoy the citys beaches, nightclubs, casinos, restaurants and leisure facilities yearly.

A complete reconstruction of an existing hotel, the Dusit Thani Samara Sousse, Sousse is slated to open in mid-2018.

 Designs for the 307-key, 5-star luxury resort incorporate a number of diverse food and beverage offerings, including Dusits famed Benjarong Restaurant serving Thai cuisine and an additional 18th floor panoramic restaurant.

 Extensive leisure facilities will house Dusits signature Devarana Spa, extending over 1,600 sqm and boasting the largest pool with solarium in Sousse, with a total area of 2,600 sqm.

The resort will also feature direct access to its own private area on Samara Beach, exclusively for resort guests.

We feel it is an excellent time to enter this new market, as prospects are exciting and political stability is back in place here in Tunisia, notes Dusit International Managing Director and CEO Mr. Chanin Donavanik. We expect the market to recover sharply and are very pleased to work with local hospitality pioneers, Socit de Tourisme Samara, to bring a Dusit Thani resort to beautiful Sousse.

For the EMEA region, Dusit is seeking new opportunities under management contracts in all key cities and resort destinations and new projects are welcomed.
