The first phase of the new å£10 million Thalassotherapy and Marine Health Treatment Centre has opened in Hammamet, Tunisia.
The complex is to be known as the Thalassa Palace and work will soon commence on the building of a five-star hotel adjacent to the centre to accommodate Thalassa Palace clients. On completion, this will house an extravagant VIP suite boasting spectacular 1800 views of the Mediterranean.
The Thalassa Palace is being billed as the latest and most modern in the Mediterranean, and possibly the world, featuring the very latest technical equipment for the treatment and healing of a wide range of cures and beauty treatments. Its size alone, together with unique architecture makes it a phenomenal building to behold.
Already, international guests who have travelled from many countries to visit the centre, claim to have been absolutely amazed by the wide range of treatments, attention to detail and dedication of the staff.
The centre currently adjoins the four-star Nahrawess Hotel, owned and run by the Bouslama family, of which Mr Habib Bouslama is the President and Managing Director. Mr Bouslama is joined by his son Khaled, recently returned from Washington where he studied for seven years. Mr Bouslama’s daughter Nida, who studied Hospitality Management in Geneva, will be responsible for the Beauty Centre. The General Manager of the entire complex is Mr Chekib Jemour.
The Thalassa Palace is unique, innovative and superbly stylish. It successfully blends the best of modern expertise with ancient therapies in a centre that covers some 15000-sq m and has more than 70 treatments rooms with sea views.
