“The Mabrouk Group shares our vision of creating a new luxury experience in Tunisia, one that showcases the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship, and introduces the personalised service and care for our guests that Four Seasons is known for.”

Marwan Mabrouk said: “As a company with deep roots in Tunisia, it’s a great pleasure to unveil plans for a hotel of this calibre in Tunis. Four Seasons has a well-earned reputation worldwide for creating hotel and resort experiences that bring together luxurious designs and amenities alongside highly customised service. Four Seasons Hotel Tunis will build on the strengths and expertise of both of our companies – creating a world-class luxury hotel that is true to the destination.” 

Four Seasons Hotel Tunis will have many outdoor terraces overlooking the Mediterranean and 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.

On the food and beverage scene, the hotel will have a coastal beach bistro and lounge, a Monaco-inspired brasserie, and an internationally-inspired market venue.

“We are excited to extend our presence in North Africa, and particularly along this stretch of the Mediterranean coast, as we create more opportunities for our luxury guests to experience Four Seasons in the region,” said Smith.

Four Seasons Hotel Tunis will be the first Four Seasons in Tunisia and the seventh in North Africa.  Four Seasons currently manages two properties in Morocco and four in Egypt.
