New Resort to Rise in Tunisia


Tunisia's tourism scene is stepping up development to attract new visitors. For example: Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company recently announced that it will build its first luxury resort project in Tunisia, Hotelier Middle East is reporting.

A high-level delegation from the company is set to attend a groundbreaking ceremony for the $80 million resort in Tozeur, a city located in southwestern Tunisia.

The project will include about 60 suites, high-end health and spa components, retail outlets and restaurants, conference and business facilities, an amphitheatre and an “Arabian Night” tent, as well as desert sports and tennis courts.

Qatari Diar previously announced it had signed a contract worth more than $543.8 million for projects in Egypt.

The resort is scheduled to open in 2015, according to Qatari Diar's website.
