About Holidays in Tunisia
About the Royal Kenz
Port El Kantaoui, Tunisia
Situated in a quiet area just 250 metres away from the beach.
Mr Bridge holidaymakers have been staying at the Royal Kenz in Port El Kantaoui for nearly a decade. In January 2014 the hotel came under the wing of new owners – Magic Life Hotels and several improvements have been made to the hotel.
The Hotel Royal Kenz is in a great spot, less than a ten-minute walk from a long ribbon of sand. Plus, a taxi into Port El Kantaoui takes less than five minutes. And if you want to explore a bit further out, the city of Sousse and its ancient medina are only a 15-minute drive away.
At the hotel, you’ll find two swimming pools bordered by loungers and palms. There’s a spa here, too, which is dotted with softly-lit lanterns. Take your pick from treatments like an aromatic milk bath and a Berber clay wrap (payable extra).
On the food front, it’s a buffet set-up in the restaurant. Expect home favourites like cooked breakfasts, plus weekly themed nights where you can try dishes from around the globe. Then there are the à la carte eateries, which specialise in Indian and Italian cuisine.
The hotel had a revamp in summer 2014, and rooms come with an extra splash of colour and flat screen TVs. There is a new al fresco dining terrace attached to the main restaurant, too.
The purpose built bridge room can accommdate 25 tables. Recently renovated the bridge room is now air-conditioned (according to season) and sound equipment has been installed.
Choice of rooms (twin, double) all come with private bath, toilet and balcony and single rooms are double for sole occupancy (supplement £5 per room per night). You can add a pool view supplement for £3 per person per night or a superior garden view room with bath robe, tea/coffee making facility £3 per person per night.

Just 77 miles south-west of Sicily and two and a half hours flying time from the UK, Tunisia is a small North African country in the heart of the Mediterranean which is blessed with a stunning coastline, gorgeous sandy beaches, an abundance of historical sites and the magic of the Sahara desert. Whether you choose to simply relax, visit the sites, enjoy watersports, play golf, tennis and bowls, Tunisia is a year round holiday destination with something for everyone. A mix of African, Arabic and French cultures ensure you are in for a real treat and the natives are friendly and welcoming. Make Tunisia the holiday of your dreams this year and travel to one of the best value destinations in the Mediterranean - you won't regret it.
Today's travellers will find that tourism has developed alongside tradition. Modern hotels blend in with the area and purpose built resorts like Port El Kantaoui have been constructed on sites identified for their natural beauty, embracing rather than destroying local culture.
