Mövenpick Resort & Thalasso Sousse

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is to open a new upscale resort and conference property at the Tunisian holiday destination of Sousse. The Mövenpick Resort & Thalasso Sousse is the Swiss hotel group’s second resort in Tunisia and comprises 627 rooms (39 of which will be suites). This beachside hotel is located in the heart of the city along the lively corniche and is scheduled to open in July 2009. Sousse is renowned for its astounding Mediterranean coastline with sandy beaches, its picturesque old town and year-round mild climate. This vibrant port city is located some 130 km south of Tunis, and Monastir International Airport is a mere 20 minutes’ drive away. North Africa’s largest international airport is also due to open in Enfidah, 30 minutes from Sousse, in November 2009. The new resort is situated in a prime location directly on a beautiful sandy beach, in the immediate vicinity of the bustling town centre. A modern shopping mall and a casino are a few minutes’ walk away and it’s only a short drive to the 36-hole golf course. Guests will be able to enjoy culinary treats from six restaurants and five bars. One particular highlight  will be  the Thalasso Centre with its indoor seawater swimming pool, a modern health and fitness club and a wide selection of treatments offered in over 40 rooms and generous gardens.
