Four Seasons Hotel Opens in Tunis

Four Seasons has expanded its portfolio of luxury hotels to the capital city of Tunisia.

The Four Seasons Hotel Tunis is located by the Mediterranean, a short drive from the ancient Roman ruins of Carthage and the traditional village of Sidi Bou Said. The hotel is a 20-minute drive to Les Berges du Lac, where most embassies and international offices are located, and 30 minutes from Tunis City, the central business district.

“We are delighted to greet our first guests at Four Seasons Hotel Tunis,” said General Manager, Ahmed Khalaf (pictured). “Already there has been great interest among our Gammarth neighbours and inquiries from around the world, and now I join my team in their excitement to show off our new hotel, and invite guests to explore the ancient wonders of Tunisia, and the wonderful seaside lifestyle of the city.”

Contemporary Arabesque architecture and design details including mashrabiya latticework screens reflect both the hotel’s proximity to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and its easy access to the city.

 Spilling down toward the sea is a complex of white buildings connected via arched walkways and surrounded by pools, fountains and gardens beneath swaying palms before giving way to a sandy beach edging the Mediterranean.

 Public areas are designed in an open concept to capture gentle sea breezes, while guest rooms and suites open to either garden or sea views.

The Four Seasons Hotel Tunis features 203 rooms including 35 suites. Rooms start at 55 square metres (592 square feet) and most feature a view of the Mediterranean. All have an outdoor terrace or balcony.

 While the 550 square metre (5,920 square foot) Presidential Suite with its enormous tiered terrace featuring a private pool for families and entertaining may be the hotel’s most prestigious accommodation, the three Mediterranean Suites are equally appealing. Each boasts a large living and dining area serviced by a butler’s pantry, a private office, and sumptuous master bedroom opening onto a furnished terrace overlooking the sea.

The hotel’s lavish spa is inspired by the country’s historic sites and traditions, with many of the 11 treatment rooms opening to terraces with sea views. The VIP Suite is the ultimate indulgence for one or two guests, with twin massage beds, a rain shower, bathtub and private terrace relaxation area.

The striking indoor-outdoor lap pool, is surrounded by columns and shimmering with mosaic tiles, while the outdoor pool’s central location overlooking the sea makes it one of the best places to enjoy a sunset cocktail.

 There’s also a fully equipped fitness centre with steam rooms and sauna, and separate men’s and women’s lounges, and two tennis courts.

For families, the renowned Kids for All Seasons program is headquartered in its own space – including a splash pool – with a full program of games, cultural activities and more. There’s also a Teen Centre where young adults can enjoy video games and socialize with new friends.

The hotel also has a good selection of F&B outlets and more than 1,500 square metres (16,000 square feet) of indoor and outdoor event space.
