Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas has made its North African debut with the opening of Anantara Tozeur Resort in the southwest of Tunisia. 

The new-build resort has 93 guestrooms, five dining outlets (including an Arabian Cultural Village), a spa with six treatment rooms, a kids club with a private pool, tennis courts and a fitness club with a yoga studio. Two of the accommodations are three-bedroom Royal Villas with more than 800 square meters of indoor living space.

The Arabian Cultural Village has a traditional souk (Arab market or marketplace) and open-air tent housing the Arabian Nights Restaurant.

The property's lobby was designed with Moorish architecture that includes a series of keyhole archway spaces, a mosaic infinity water feature and a deconstructed chandelier dominating the reception area. Guestrooms have Berber patterns and North African furnishings, inlaid timber screens and traditional fret-cut lighting.

Located on the edge of Tozeur, the resort is a 15-minute drive from the city’s international airport.
