Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is gearing up to open its latest property in North Africa – the stunning lakeside Mövenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis in Tunisia’s capital.
The 189-key hotel, which is located in the city’s attractive Berges du Lac business and diplomatic district, will welcome its first guests this Spring (2018), offering the latest in-room technology, new gastronomic experiences and extensive meeting, events and wellness facilities.
“With an inspiring setting, world-class restaurants, a magnificent spa and several modern multi-purpose venues all part of our offering, Mövenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis is set to make its mark as a premier dining, entertainment and wedding destination in the heart of Tunis,” said General Manager Nicolas Pezout.
“With a prime location, just five minutes from Tunis-Carthage airport, 10 minutes from downtown Tunis and close to major shopping malls, golf courses and cultural landmarks such as Tunis Medina (Old City), the hotel is well positioned to attract business and leisure travellers looking for a convenient and contemporary five-star property when visiting this thriving Mediterranean city.”
A skilled hotelier, whose career with Mövenpick spans more than a decade, Nicolas is busy preparing the Mövenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis team for the grand opening. He has plenty of experience, having held senior management positions at several Mövenpick properties in Europe and the Middle East.
In his new role, Pezout will ensure Mövenpick’s culinary heritage and famous hospitality shine. All 189 rooms and suites will offer a choice of city or lake views, while dining options will include an authentic gourmet kitchen atelier experience at La Table du Chef; refined all-day dining at Le Grand Restaurant; and a chilled-out lakeside terrace serving mocktails, signature bites and shisha at Al-Diwan.
Outstanding wellness facilities will span S Per Aqua’s spa, relaxation pool, sauna, hydro baths and gym, while guests can choose from six venues designed to host tailormade events, weddings and meetings, such as the impressive 750-seater ballroom.
Mövenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis is the hospitality firm’s third property in Tunisia and its 23rd in Africa with five additional hotels set to open in the region by 2020.
