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!
