The Rezidor Hotel Group has announced a new mid-market hotel in Tunisia – Park Inn Hammamet.
Under the plans, the existing Hotel Riu Park El Kebir will be re-branded and open in the second quarter of 2012 following a full renovation.
It will be Rezidor’s third hotel in the country – the group is already operating the Park Inn Ulysse Resort & Thalasso and the award winning Radisson Blu Resort & Thalasso in Djerba.
“We are delighted to further strengthen our presence in Tunisia and to come to Hammamet – one of North Africa’s first and most popular resort destinations”, said Kurt Ritter, president Rezidor.
“It is a pleasure for us to start our cooperation with the CARTE insurance group which owns the new hotel, and we look forward to further joint projects.”
Hammamet is located on the Mediterranean coast, just 60 kilometres away from the capital city, Tunis.
Tunisia is one of the top destinations along the North African Mediterranean coast.
Park Inn by Radisson is Rezidor’s young and dynamic mid market brand.
Launched in early 2003, Park Inn by Radisson today features more than 145 hotels with 26,500 rooms in operation and under development across Europe, Middle East and Africa.
