Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is set to cement its stronghold in Tunisia with the takeover of a contemporary hotel in the coastal city of Sfax.
The Swiss hospitality firm has signed an agreement with Société Touristique du Sud to manage the Plaza Sfax & Spa Hotel, an upscale property in a prime city center location on Rue Khalid Ibn Walid.
The hotel will mark the chain’s forth property in the country upon its opening later this year.
“This upcoming addition to our Tunisia portfolio will expand our regional footprint, stamping out our presence in a new destination with high growth potential,” explained Andrew Langdon, chief development officer, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
“Sfax is not only a historic city with Mediterranean charm, but an up-and-coming business and trading center where upscale hotel supply is relatively limited and corporate demand is strong. Operating a property in a central location and with a raft of high-quality facilities will enable us to capitalize on these favorable market conditions.”
The 89-key hotel, which spans nine floors, brings an expansive spa center, a swimming pool and a gym, as well as a ballroom and six meeting rooms, while three upmarket dining options will span an all-day dining venue, a specialty rooftop restaurant with panoramic city and coastal views and a lobby lounge.
“This attractive property occupies a prime area of real estate in the heart of Sfax and presents a unique opportunity for a hospitality specialist with regional and international expertise to create a business and leisure destination with a difference,” said Mourad Jallali, president & CEO, Société Touristique du Sud.
Mövenpick also operates the Mövenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis, which opened earlier this year, as well as Mövenpick Resort & Marine Spa Sousse and Mövenpick Hotel Gammarth Tunis.Add to Favorites
