Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed a deal to
take over of a contemporary hotel in the coastal city of Sfax,
The Swiss hospitality firm has signed an
agreement with Société Touristique du Sud to manage the Plaza Sfax
& Spa Hotel located on Rue Khalid Ibn Walid, close to the historic
Medina, a short walk from the largest convention centre, Sfax
International Fair, and just 10km from Sfax-Thyna Airport.
When the hotel launches as Mövenpick Hotel Sfax
later this year, it will mark Mövenpicks fourth
property in Tunisia.
This upcoming addition to our Tunisia
portfolio will expand our regional footprint, stamping out our
presence in a new destination with high growth potential,
said Andrew Langdon, Chief Development Officer, Mövenpick
Hotels & Resorts. Sfax is not only a historic city with
Mediterranean charm, but an up-and-coming business and trading centre where upscale hotel supply is relatively limited and
corporate demand is strong. Operating a property in a central
location and with a raft of high-quality facilities will enable us
to capitalise on these favourable market conditions.
Facilities at the
89-key hotel include an expansive spa centre, swimming pool and gym, as
well as a ballroom and six meeting rooms, while three
dining options will span an all-day dining venue, a specialty
rooftop restaurant with panoramic city and coastal views and a
This attractive property occupies a prime
area of real estate in the heart of Sfax and presents a unique
opportunity for a hospitality specialist with regional and
international expertise to create a business and leisure
destination with a difference, said Mourad Jallali, President &
CEO, Société Touristique du Sud. With its strong track
record managing a portfolio of properties in North Africa region,
we are confident Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will make a huge
success of this landmark project.
Mövenpick also operates
the Mövenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis, which opened earlier this year,
as well as Mövenpick Resort & Marine Spa Sousse and Mövenpick
Hotel Gammarth Tunis.
