Just a short drive from the ancient Roman ruins of Carthage and the traditional village of Sidi Bou Said, a sanctuary of modern luxury and style has opened its doors on the Mediterranean shore of the capital: welcome to the all-new Four Seasons Hotel Tunis.
We are delighted to greet our first guests at Four Seasons Hotel Tunis, says General Manager Ahmed Khalaf. Already there has been great interest among our Gammarth neighbours and inquiries from around the world, and now I join my team in their excitement to show off our new Hotel, and invite guests to explore the ancient wonders of Tunisia, and the wonderful seaside lifestyle of the city.
Contemporary Arabesque architecture and design details including mashrabiya latticework screens reflect both the Hotels proximity to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and its easy access to the city.

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.
