Hong Kong, 16 April 2018 – Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has unveiled a new contemporary hotel on the banks of majestic Lake Tunis, creating a business and leisure destination with a difference in a prime area of the Tunisian capital.
Marking another milestone in the company’s North African expansion strategy, Mövenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis has opened its doors, featuring 189 contemporary rooms and suites and a raft of exceptional dining, spa and meetings facilities.
Conveniently located in the city’s thriving Berges du Lac business and diplomatic district, just 10 minutes from Tunis-Carthage airport and downtown Tunis, 15 minutes from the trendy towns of Carthage, La Marsa and Sidi Bou Said, and within easy reach of the city’s cultural sites, shopping malls and golf courses, the new property has broad appeal, according to Marc Descrozaille, President – Middle East & Africa, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
“With an enviable lakeside location, outstanding facilities and major attractions on its doorstep, I am confident Mövenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis will quickly establish a reputation as one of the city’s most sought-after properties, popular with business, leisure and wedding guests,” he said.
“Movenpick’s signature hospitality style, which is centered on our we make moments philosophy, will also make its mark in Tunis, ensuring our guests experience a warm and personal service and an unforgettable stay in this exciting Mediterranean city.”
The property’s rooms and suites, some with balconies, feature modern elegant furnishings and décor, the latest in-room technology, and breathtaking city or lake views.
Reflecting Mövenpick’s culinary heritage, there are also three distinct dining venues. Guests can enjoy a sumptuous international buffet at all-day dining venue, Le Grand Restaurant, which also hosts street-food-inspired coffee breaks for meetings delegates; an exclusive kitchen-Atelier experience at La Table du Chef, where dishes are tailormade to their liking; or signature bites, hot and cold drinks, inventive cocktails and shisha at the lobby lounge Al Diwan. A fourth venue, La Terrasse, provides outdoor seating for all three restaurants, offering guests an al fresco dining option by the lake.
For meetings, conferences and events with a difference, or a memorable lakeside wedding, the hotel has three meeting rooms, a large ballroom and an outdoor venue, all with flexible configurations and set ups. Le Grand Salon (ballroom) can host up to 700 guests while the terrace is perfect for open-air wedding ceremonies.
A wellness hub in its own right, S Per Aqua is a remarkable spa and fitness facility featuring eight treatment rooms, two flash-UV cabins, a hammam, sauna, experience showers and hydro baths, plus a heated indoor pool with tranquillity terrace, fitness centre with the latest gym equipment, a beauty salon and boutiques selling gourmet food, spa products and handicrafts.
