Mövenpick to open coastal hotel in Tunisia

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is set to cement its stronghold in Tunisia with the 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, an upscale property in a prime city centre location 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 the Swiss hospitality firm’s fourth property in Tunisia.

The 89-key hotel, which spans nine floors, is characterised by contemporary architecture and a modern interior design concept inspired by nature, with open spaces and neutral harmonious colours creating a relaxing ambiance.

Facility highlights will include an expansive spa centre, swimming pool and gym, as well as a ballroom and six meeting rooms, while three upmarket dining options will span an all-day dining venue, a specialty rooftop restaurant with panoramic city and coastal views and a lobby lounge.

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.
