Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, has announced that it will open its first hotel in Tunisia, its first hotel in the area and seventh in North Africa, in late 2017.

Perched along the hillside of the exclusive Gammarth neighbourhood, Four Seasons Hotel Tunis promises guests sweeping views of the coast, Arabic-inspired architecture and Mediterranean influences. The beachfront hotel will be a draw for business and leisure guests alike.

Four Seasons Hotel Tunis will offer the largest accommodations in the city, many with outdoor terraces overlooking the Mediterranean. The Hotel will also feature an expansive Roman-inspired Spa, as well as a series of pools, gardens, and fountains that echo the design of the historic medina, creating a tranquil oasis within the heart of Gammarth.
