A place where you can wander through Roman ruins and visit the sands of the Sahara and the sands of the beach in the same day, Tunisia is quickly becoming known for its beautiful beaches, historical sites and colourful cuisine. Home to some of the best beach in North Africa, those looking to switch off can sit back, soak up some rays and unwind whilst adrenaline junkies can try their hand at the variety of water sports on offer. Like food? Then Tunisian cuisine is something you have to try. Brik, a deep-friend tuna and egg turnover is considered a local speciality whilst couscous and Tunisian salads are staples. Whether it is found in a local café or at The Residence Tunis’s El Dar restaurant, these dishes are not to be missed.

If you fancy culture over cuisine then head to Tunis’ Unesco-listed medina to witness the bold doors in blues, yellows and greens that open onto hidden mansions and restaurants decked out in lavish tiles. Tunis is also home to one of the world’s most impressive museums, the Bardo, which houses thousands of Roman-era mosaics and other treasures found on archaeological sites throughout the country. Travel north to find the ruins at Carthage, the Roman amphitheatre at El Djem, and the UNESCO protected Dougga – all great treasures in Tunisia’s trove. Excursions from The Residence can be easily arranged with private guides for those wanting to learn a little more about this African gem. The hotel can also arrange sailing, camel and horseriding, quad biking, banana boats, outboards and jets skis nearby.

After a day of successful sightseeing, back at the resort there are a variety of different restaurants, each with delicious cuisine ranging from fresh seafood and Mediterranean fare to authentic Chinese plus an al fresco salad bar. The wellness facilities will have you relaxed in no time and the Thermes Marins de Carthage Spa is a real highlight of the hotel. Inspired by Roman baths it is not only visually stunning but offers a wonderful range of treatments and facilities for guests wanting some indulgence to enjoy. The 18-hole Robert Trent-designed golf course and clubhouse are also exceptional and provide a great source of exercise for those who want to stay ‘well’ whilst away. In addition there are two swimming pools (indoor and outdoor), two floodlit tennis courts and a fully equipped gym.
