Turkey and Tunisia Getting a Luxury Hotel Makeover

September 13, 2012 By:Oksana Balytsky

While we’re not sure of what next week will hold let alone next year, these hotel chains are looking much farther into the future and planning their next big hotel openings for 2013, 2014, 2015, and beyond! Assuming the world doesn’t end come December, we’ll certainly keep up with the developments and look forward to even more luxury hotel options in cities around the world.

After the success of its property in Dresden, Swisshotels is planning to open two new hotels in Bodrum, Turkey, one on the beach and the other in the city. The beach resort will offer 66 guest rooms along with villas and residences, and the 56-room city resort will be in the hills and feature stunning views of the city. Both hotels are expected to open in 2013 and 2014.

Ritz Carlton is opening a 129-suite resort in Tunis, Tunisia in 2014, so if you never had a reason to visit Africa, you do now. We’re imagining taking a stroll along the resort beach and exploring the ancient ruins in Carthage.

 If your plans have you traveling a bit sooner, be sure to explore the luxury hotels we have located all over the world, and check in with us often to read about the progress of these up and coming hotels!
