Iberostar opens its twelfth Tunisian property in Tozeur

Tunisia has reaffirmed its position as the top holiday hotspot for 2009, by opening its twelfth Iberostar property in the desert resort of Tozeur. Situated on the edge of the Sahara amid a forest of palms, the luxurious four-star Hotel Iberostar Palmyre elegantly combines the full range of modern facilities with the traditional Bedouin architecture inherent to Tunisia’s ‘Golden South’.

Featuring over 100 luxury rooms with an unrivalled view of the region, the hotel provides the perfect location for adventure tours, where guests are given the chance to ride a quad bike or engage in camel trekking on the shifting desert sands.

The desert surrounding Tozeur remains a Mecca for film enthusiasts who regularly make the pilgrimage to the region, with many of the iconic scenes from Star Wars and ‘The English Patient’ shot there. Only a two-and-a-half hour flight from London, Tunisia, the ‘Jewel of the Mediterranean’ provides a truly unique holiday experience for 2009.
