Radisson Hotel Group announced the signing of the Radisson Hotel Tunis in Tunisia’s capital city. It will be the first Radisson branded hotel in the city of Tunis and the Group’s fourth hotel in the country. This brings Radisson Hotel Group’s African portfolio to almost 100 hotels in operation and under development.
The new Radisson Hotel Tunis, scheduled to open in Q1 2023, will be located in Tunis North. It will be an integral part of the IQ Smart Building & Business Center, which will include the hotel, retail spaces and commercial offices with the latest technology. The hotel will also be next to the large mixed-use Tunis Sport City project that is currently under development and intended to train a new sporting generation and inspire future champions.
Elie Younes, executive vice president & chief development officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We see a great opportunity in Tunis, as there is currently a limited supply of high-quality accommodation in the city. Tourism remains one of the most important sectors in the country with the sector accounting for nearly 10% of total investment, according to WTTC. We look forward to a successful journey with our partners and to providing career opportunities for the local people.”
The new-build hotel will feature 117 rooms. Guests will enjoy a variety of cuisines and beverages at the hotel’s restaurant, bar and rooftop lounge. The meetings and events facilities will consist of five meeting rooms and a conference space of 358 square meters. A fitness room, a wellness spa and a panoramic swimming pool will be also available.
