Just a short drive from the ancient Roman ruins of Carthage and the traditional village of SidiBou Said, a sanctuary of modern luxury and style has opened its doors on the Mediterranean shore of the capital.
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 palatial 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 beneath a bright blue sky. 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.
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. In all, 203 guest accommodations including 35 suites – Tunisia’s largest, and all with terraces or balconies – offer myriad options whether travelling alone on business, enjoying a romantic getaway or bringing the entire family for a seaside holiday.
With five food and beverage options overseen by Executive Chef Omar Mallen, guests are spoiled for choice, beginning with The CREEK, Bistro Chic Restaurant and Loungeon the top floor of the Hotel, where Mediterranean coastal cuisine featuring fresh products from the city’s large Central Market is served indoors and outdoors each evening. At BLU Bar & Grill, those lounging poolside or playing on the beach in spring and summer will find a menu of fresh fish and seafood in a casual al fresco setting. Azuroffers an international menu served from dawn until late evening. Salon Alyssa, which includes indoor and terrace seating, is the ideal setting for casual meetings and light refreshments in a chic and cosy atmosphere.

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.
