Occupying 300m of private beachfront and just a 5 minute drive from the city’s bustling centre, the Movenpick Resort & Marine Spa is simply perfect for those seeking relaxation whilst also remaining close to all that the resort of Sousse has to offer.
Also known as "the pearl of the Sahel", the city of Sousse simply oozes with personality, from its sandy white beaches through to its many historical sites (the earliest archaeological findings here date from around the 6th century BC). Whether you try your hand at haggling in the Medina, amble through the tiny narrow streets or take a Tuk-Tuk ride over to Port El Kantaoui you certainly won’t be disappointed with your visit to this beautiful city.
The hotel is also located just 6km from a 36 hole golf course but you’ll find so much to do on site that you might not wish to venture any further! Facilities here are fantastic and include two outdoor free form swimming pools, sun terraces, six bars (including a swim-up pool bar) and a gym. The Movenpick Resort also has its own thalassotherapy centre with an indoor and outdoor spa pool and offers a variety of luxurious treatments including massages, a sauna and traditional hammams – simply perfect for relaxing after a day spent discovering the local sights!
Cuisine at the hotel is quite simply a delight, with four a la carte restaurants featuring Japanese, Spanish, French and grill specialities. For more informal dining there’s also a beach and pool bar serving snacks throughout the day, or the Moorish cafe where you can relax with a drink whilst deciding on your next activity!
Daytime activities here are varied and run by the hotel’s own recreation team. You can certainly expect games, shows and even dancing lessons – you might well surprise yourself! Younger guests will also enjoy the kids club which caters for those aged between 4 and 12 years – not to mention their own swimming pool, outdoor play area, playroom and computer games!
Being a beachside hotel, there’s also an array of water sports on offer at the Movenpick Resort and these tend to run between May and October. It’s ideal if you want to try something new as well as keeping active. And if you prefer to keep your sport on dry land, there’s always table tennis or the fitness centre!

The captivating holiday resort town of Sousse lies on Tunisia's east coast, about two hours drive south of the capital, Tunis. From the 9th century onwards the Phoenicians, Byzantines, Arabs and Romans discovered the delights of this fertile spot, dubbed 'the pearl of the Sahel' in ancient times, and today the mild climate, beautiful Mediterranean shoreline and warm people work their magic on holidaymakers from Europe.
Sousse is also favoured by Tunisians as a get-away destination, and the friendly inhabitants enjoy mingling with visitors on the sandy beaches and busy promenade. The proliferation of modern resort hotels along the beachfront has not detracted from the charms of the inner city, and Sousse is still regarded as having probably the finest (though not the largest) old city, or Medina, in Tunisia. A warren of narrow covered alleyways nestling below the Ribat, or fort, hide hundreds of colourful shops selling a myriad of local goods from carpets and porcelain to leather bags and olive oil.
Outside the Medina there is also a vast modern shopping complex. Sousse is not all just shopping and beach bathing, however. The town's museum, situated in the old castle or kasbah, is renowned for its collection of mosaics, masks, statues and other relics of the Roman occupation. There are also several miles of well-preserved ancient Christian catacombs and marble tombs in the town. Sousse offers its many package-tour visitors all the facilities and surroundings of a relaxing seaside holiday, overlaid with the undeniably foreign and exotic atmosphere of North Africa, all at extremely affordable prices.
Most of the pleasurable and sporting activities offered to holidaymakers in Sousse are beach-based, including fishing, scuba diving, windsurfing and water-skiing. There are also numerous excursions on offer for those keen on exploring more of the Tunisian coastline. In the town itself, delving into the ancient Roman history at the excellent museum and shopping are interesting diversions.
Visitors to Sousse are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining out, with a variety of options available from pizza and tapas to French cuisine, but most holidaymakers rave in particular about the popular local staple dish, Couscous (steamed semolina grains), which comes in various combinations. Most of the better restaurants are located inside the luxury hotels; others are within walking distance of wherever you are staying.
Nightlife in Sousse has its seamier side with several seedy dives where prostitutes are on offer along with the beer. If in doubt before entering any club or bar question the doorman or take a good look. Nightlife generally for tourists is confined to the apartment resorts and hotels, offering dancing and entertainment. Young Tunisians tend to gather on the beach promenade after dark.
There are bargains to be had in the alleyways of the Sousse old city for holidaymakers who practise the time-worn art of haggling successfully. Carpets and leatherware are favourite buys for tourists, but there is also a vast stock of cheap souvenirs on which to fritter away the holiday budget. Some visitors are intimidated and do not enjoy bargaining with the canny souk shopkeepers, who usually begin negotiations with a price inflated up to ten times the value. These visitors would be better advised to do their shopping in the adjacent modern shopping mall, which is crammed with shops offering local goods and wares from all over North Africa, on sale at fixed prices.
Many visitors have complained that shopkeepers in the medina are overbearing, and even frightening, in their persistence. There have also been reports of pickpockets being active in the alleyways.
