Hilton has announced an agreement with Societe Marhaba Beach to open Hilton Skanes Monastir Beach Resort.
The upper upscale Hilton Hotels & Resorts property will offer beach-side vistas across the Gulf of Hammamet, as part of the new Palm Lake Monastir residential and commercial development and within close proximity to the historic towns of Monastir and Sousse.
“As travellers plan their vacations and dream of new destinations to visit, we see great potential to expand our portfolio in resort locations across North Africa,” says Carlos Khneisser, vice president of development, Middle East and Africa for Hilton. “Tunisia has a rich tradition of tourism and hospitality and we are delighted to be partnering with owner, Societe Marhaba Beach, to bring Hilton to the beautiful resort of Skanes as we grow our portfolio in locations across the country.”
Hilton Skanes Monastir Beach Resort will have 332 stylish rooms and suites, offering uninterrupted views of the Mediterranean and will be set within landscaped gardens with access to the resort’s private beach. Guests will also be able to enjoy two outdoor swimming pools, a spa and wellness centre featuring an indoor pool, as well as extensive fitness facilities, tennis courts and kids’ club for family entertainment.
Dining options will include eight food and beverage outlets including two specialty restaurants, an all-day dining restaurant, specialty bar, pool bar as well as two café lounges. The hotel will also feature a pop-up food truck offering the latest culinary trends. For meetings and events, the resort will have more than 700 square metres of meeting space.
Hilton is currently developing two further properties in Tunisia as part of its Hilton Hotels & Resorts and DoubleTree by Hilton brands in the capital city, Tunis.
