Cupolas, chandeliers and the calming scent of orange blossom welcome you to The Residence Tunis, an ivorycoloured m‘kasbah’ that leads down towards a private beach overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Its membership of ‘The Leading Hotels of the World’ underlines its status as the best pied-à-terre in Tunisia, and whilst its wide-ranging mfacilities make it suitable for anything from a quick golf or spa fix to a leisurely family break, its romantic vibe means itm also attracts couples like moths to a flame.
And nowhere do love affairs have a better chance of flourishing than in one of the 164 guest rooms or suites. There are no earth tones or ethnic rugs for The Residence Tunis, but nuanced cream-on-white shades subtly accented with graceful ironwork and splashes of gold. Marble bathrooms are standard, of course, and the private balconies overlook either the gardens or pool with the sparkling Mediterranean Sea in the distance. LCD satellite TVs and DVD players are on hand if you want to stay in touch with the real world outside.
But why not embrace the fantasy? The Thalasso-Spa by Darphin ranks as one of the best in the Med, its magical atmosphere inspired by the ancient thermal baths in Rome. There are also indoor and outdoor pools, as well as tennis courts, summer boat trips and an 18-hole golf course created by Robert Trent Jones II. And you don’t even have to return to reality when you dine, the six different, seasonal restaurants and bars inviting you to go on a culinary journey though the flavours, aromas and colours of the region - expect anything from mint teas and fresh pastries to Tunisian and Mediterranean delicacies, the Chinese and healthy spa options both a delicious surprise.
