Harmony is when arts, culture and tourism are intertwined : discover the Hasdrubal hotel!
Tourism wasn’t always about selling, buying, and making profit. Prior to the 20th century, there was a time when wanderers would travel for the sake of discovering new places, and nothing else. One can think of Flaubert, Delacroix, or Shimanovsky, being respectively great names in the literature, painting, and music areas. All of them traveled and depicted their journeys in their works. Famous Swiss/German painter Paul Klee explored beautiful Tunisia and left his mark in Hammamet.
Is the link uniting culture and tourism obvious? One can only answer with a big “YES!” seeing the Hasdrubal thalassa and spa hotel, located in the coastal area of Yasmine El Hammamet.
The breathtaking establishment gathers a white-sand beach touching limpid azure water, with the calmness of the Hammamet bay shrouding its white constructions. The crown jewel of the Hasdrubal hotel is its art collection.
Founding President Mr. Mohamed Amouri is very proud of the collection that brings together, among others, Tunisian, Algerian, Moroccan, Iraqi, and French artists, such as Aly Ben Salem and Hassen Abd Alwan. Viewers of such masterpieces are not less famous that the painters themselves. Prince Nayef Ibn Abdulaziz, singer Isabelle Adjani, and famous showbiz couple Johnny and Laeticia Hallyday are among the visitors.
Hasdrubal hotel will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2019, and Director General Mr. Raouf Amouri is planning unforgettable celebrations. In addition to paintings, the hotel organizes musical events, such as classical music concert called “Les Arpèges de l’Hasdrubal”, welcoming renowned musicians including soprano Chiraz Ben Sadok, pianist Amira Knani, and young prodigy Ons Ben Romdhane. Hasdrubal has thus established itself as an outstanding medley of culture and tourism, proudly highlighting the millenia-rich Tunisian heritage.
