Mövenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis has opened its doors on the banks of Lake Tunis, creating a business and leisure destination in the Tunisian capital.
The five-star property is another milestone for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, supporting its North African expansion strategy. It features 189 contemporary rooms and suites including fine dining, spa and MICE facilities, and unhindered city or lake views.
Aside from being set in a natural lagoon, Mövenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis is conveniently located in the city’s thriving Berges du Lac business and diplomatic district, 10 minutes from Tunis-Carthage airport and downtown Tunis, 15 minutes from the towns of Carthage, La Marsa and Sidi Bou Said, and within easy reach of cultural sites, shopping outlets and golf courses.
According to Marc Descrozaille, president, Middle East and 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.”
“Mövenpick’s signature hospitality style… will make its mark in Tunis”
“Mövenpick’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,” Descrozaille added.
In addition, there are distinctive dining venues. Le Grand Restaurant, which offers all-day dining, international buffet, and street food-inspired coffee breaks for meeting delegates; La Table du Chef, and exclusive kitchen-Atelier experience where dishes are tailormade; Al Diwan, which serves signature bites, inventive cocktails and shisha at the lobby lounge; and a fourth venue called La Terrasse, provides outdoor seating for all three restaurants, offering an al fresco dining option by the lake.
For MICE events, the hotel has three meeting rooms, a large ballroom, and an outdoor venue for hosting lakeside occasions. Le Grand salon ballroom can host up to 700 guests while the terrace is suitable for open-air ceremonies.
A wellness hub is also available for guests. S Per Aqua is a spa and fitness facility featuring eight treatment rooms, two flash-UV cabins, a hammam, sauna, experience showers and hydrobaths, plus a heated indoor pool with terrace, fitness centre, beauty salon and boutiques selling gourmet food, spa products and handicrafts.
