TUI BLUE Oceana Resort and Spa

The adults-only TUI BLUE Oceana Resort and Spa comes with a beachside location, a trio of eateries and a plush spa.

Luscious gardens surround the grounds of the hotel. They provide a tropical vibe, as well as some extra seclusion and privacy. Even the clear pool is picture-perfect. It’s a great place to enjoy a dip and escape the heat.

There’s also a swish dining scene including a buffet spot with show-cooking stations. In the hotel, weekly gala dinners are held and seafood specialities are served at the pool bar.

In the evening, pianists show off their skills while an occasional live band also performs.

Overview of Yasmine Hammamet

Yasmine Hammamet is a modern town overflowing with restaurants, cafes and places where you can sample the best of Tunisia’s market shopping destinations. Plus, Yasmine Hammamet is a best-of-both-worlds location because it’s next door to the ancient winding alleys of Hammamet. If you’re looking for a holiday to Tunisia where you can blend old and new, this is the place to be.

Yasmine Hammamet is a bubbly place with a lively atmosphere. Elegant and modern restaurants surround an area that also includes major shopping boulevards, a marina and even a sandy beach.

Things to do in Yasmine Hammamet

The TUI BLUE Oceana Resort and Spa is located right on a public beach. You’re guaranteed a lounger here though, because the hotel has its own private strip of sand. Just off the back of the beach, there are plenty of bars and restaurants where you can dine in luxurious surroundings.

Hammamet’s old town is also only five kilometres away from the hotel. There’s a sand-coloured Great Mosque and a 1920s’ house set in lush botanical gardens. Slightly outside Hammamet, there’s also Pupput, a Roman settlement with crumbling ruins and mosaics.

Yasmine Hammamet is an up-and-coming destination that celebrates the very best of Tunisia. A great blend of old and new, it’s definitely somewhere that should be on your Tunisian shortlist.


Resort Summary

They say Hammamet is where tourism in Tunisia was born, and as far as destinations in the country go, they don’t come much more classically suave. Pristine white buildings boasting wide arches and curved rooftops make for handsome surroundings, and the sun seems all the brighter for their presence.

However, Hammamet is far more than a cultural centre. Although its roots extend back to Spanish exploration and Roman colonisation, Hammamet today is as Tunisian as they come. It’s also covered in plants of all kinds – particularly olive groves, lemon trees and oranges – hence why they nickname this town the Garden Resort.
