For all of you Fabflyers out there a little weary of in-flight meal and seat photos; I thought you might like some destination information as a respite. Here are a few shots of the Mövenpick Hotel Gammarth Tunis. This was my first time visiting Tunisia and during the planning stages I was a bit apprehensive with all the recent geopolitcial issues occurring in this part of the world. When travelling alone I’m not usually so squeamish, but with clients in tow I wanted to make sure they were happy, comfortable and safe. In the end, the Mövenpick Hotel Gammarth Tunis as well as Tunisia in general proved to be a destination that provided all of these aspects and more.
The Mövenpick Hotel Gammarth Tunis is located in a suburb of Tunis facing the Mediterranean Sea adjacent to the hills of Sidi Bou Said. The view is fantastic.
One of my favorite things about travel is experiencing new places. Although I had checked out the hotel website in advance, there is nothing like arriving at a new place (we all know the hotel websites are never like the real thing! right?). The Mövenpick was actually better in person.
The lobby area of the Mövenpick Hotel Gammarth Tunis is impressive. The bell staff were quick to help with luggage and you are greeted with a welcome drink while the front desk staff process check-in formalities.
We only had breakfast and lunch during our stay but the staff were great and the food was tasty too.
On the first night I was hopelessly jetlagged so instead of fighting it I stepped out on the veranda for a nightcap and was greeted by a spectacular lightning show.
On a final note. My clients and I wanted to experience some authentic Tunisian cuisine and our guide recommended the Dar El Jeld Restaurant located in the Medina of Tunis!! Wow! Fantastic food. Should not be missed. One of the best meals I’ve ever had
