First Thémaé spa in Tunisia to launch in Hammamet

by Helen Andrews | 03 Feb 2015

The first Thémaé spa in Tunisia is set to open at the five-star hotel La Badira in the coastal town of Hammamet. The hotel is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World collection.

The 130-bedroom property, designed by HSA Architects and Esthetika Déco, opened in December 2014, but the spa – a Thémaé franchise – will debut in March 2015.

The property is owned and operated by La Badira CEO Mouna Ben Halima. The onsite Spa Thémaé measures 2,200sq m (23,681sq ft) and cost €2.2m (US$2.5m, £1.7m) to build and equip. It features 21 treatment cabins: five double suites and 16 individual therapy rooms. There is also a sauna, indoor pool, hammam, hair salon and nail bar, fitness suite and yoga room.

Speaking exclusively to Spa Opportunities, Thémaé co-founder Guillaume Lefèvre said: “Despite the recent political tensions, Tunisia is the next luxury destination for travellers and this oceanfront five-star hotel demonstrates this perfectly.”

Other features of the property – which cost a total of €15m (US$17m, £11m) to develop – include four restaurants, two outdoor swimming pools, two direct-access private beaches, a conference room with capacity for 240 people, plus meeting rooms for 15 to 60 people.
