Hilton Hotels and Resorts continues to expand in Tunisia with a new agreement with Groupe Alliance, ensuring the placement of a flagship property in the Tunis suburbs.
The property is set for the former Le Palace Hotel, which will undergo a rebrand and renovation. The new hotel is expected to reopen in 2023 as Hilton Tunis Gammarth.

We are very confident in their ability to take the project forward and bring Hilton back to the Tunisian market in style,” said Carlos Khneisser, vice president, development, Hilton MENA.
