With its fantastic waterslides, private beach and 24 hour all inclusive dining, the Thalassa Sousse is a great choice for your next family holiday in Tunisia!
Boasting four swimming pools, 15 full size slides, an interactive splash area and brand new waterslides for 2013 (the Kamikaze, Tsunami and Black Hole), the Thalassa Sousse Hotel makes for an exciting resort which all ages are guaranteed to enjoy.
Ideally located just 2km from the nearest shops and restaurants – and just 5km from the old town of Sousse itself – the hotel is perfectly situated for exploring all the resort has to offer. Renowned as Tunisia’s liveliest city, Sousse bustles with activity and a visit to the world famous Medina is an absolute must! Here you can try your hand at bartering with some of the local traders and pick up some fantastic souvenirs to take back home.
The hotel itself offers a fantastic range of facilities and sporting activities. If you don’t fancy braving the uphill flying boats or twister, you can always head to the adult-only pool, take a dip indoors or simply relax on one of the sun terraces with a long refreshing cocktail from the pool bar!
Sporting opportunities here are fantastic with a whole range of activities to choose from, including mini golf, archery, tennis, bowls and table tennis. However, if you’re looking to relax while the kids tackle the waterpark, there’s always the spa with its hammam, massage and range of beauty treatments – a small gym if you fancy a workout – and even free Wi-Fi to catch up on your emails!
Dining choices at the hotel are plentiful, with three a la carte restaurants and a themed buffet restaurant. You can then relax in the American style bar, enjoy some of the hotel’s live entertainment or dance the night away in the disco. There really is so much to do - you’ll be spoilt for choice!
Book your holiday at the Thalassa Sousse and be assured of a warm and friendly welcome – not to mention a "splashingly" good time!

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.
