Radisson Hotel Group introduced its second brand in Tunisia with the launch of Radisson Hotel Sfax.
This opening in the historic city of Sfax is part of Radisson Hotel Group’s 2022 growth and development plans for the African continent.
A historical place
As part of plans to open a dozen new hotels in Africa, bringing the group’s portfolio to just over 100 in operation or under development across the continent, the Radisson Hotel Sfax is now welcoming its first guests to a location that puts you within walking distance of downtown and medina of Sfax.
At this location, guests are given an introduction to the many cultural sites this city is known for, including a number of monuments dating back to 849 AD. Sfax has more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other city in Tunisia, with its medina dating back to the 9th century AD.
Commenting on the opening, Tim Cordon, Regional Senior Vice President for the Middle East and Africa at Radisson Hotel Group, said: “We are delighted to expand our presence in Tunisia with the opening of our third hotel in the country.
“Located on the southern shore of the Mediterranean Sea, Sfax is both a tourist destination offering centuries of culture and history, and one of Tunisia’s most important business centers.”
“As such, we have designed the Radisson Hotel Sfax to meet the needs of both leisure and business travellers. We hope that it will constitute an important part of the hotel and commercial offer of the city.
Catering for business and leisure
The new hotel is home to 88 bright, contemporary rooms and suites, all of which offer city views.
The amenities at this property bring fine dining, events, and wellness into the hospitality experience. Guests can dine at La Medina, with live cooking stations, and the ninth-floor Younga Sky, which offers impressive views of the city and coastline.

During the opening, Jean Marie Didier, General Manager of the Radisson Hotel Sfax, said: “It is an honor for me to lead this highly dedicated and motivated team, as we welcome guests with the same level of professional service as they expect from Radisson. hotels around the world and play an active role in the local community.
