Roman-inspired spa at Four Seasons Tunis to include ‘stunning hammam’

by Jane Kitchen | 08 May 2017

Blu Spas has collaborated with HKS/Hill Glazier Studio and Brayton Hughes for the spa design at the upcoming Four Seasons Hotel Tunis, due to open in late 2017.

Perched along the hillside of Gammarth, the 200-bedroom hotel combines Arabic-inspired architecture and Mediterranean influences, with a series of pools, gardens and fountains that echo the design of the historic medina.

Blu Spas first started work on the Roman-inspired spa almost ten years ago; it will include 15 treatment rooms – including four all-day suites – a spa salon, fitness and studio with a traditional garden and water courtyards, and what Blu Spas principal Cary Collier calls a “stunning hammam.”

“The project is located on a sandy site that steps down to the Mediterranean Sea and north of the ancient ruins of Carthage,” said Collier. “The spa design, embracing the hotel design vision, is rich in Tunisian culture.”

The hotel is owned by investment group the Mabrouk Group, and is the first Four Seasons in Tunisia and the seventh in North Africa; Four Seasons also manages two properties in Morocco and four in Egypt.

Blu Spas is also creating a two-level spa for the upcoming Four Seasons Kuwait.
