Ideal for small budgets, the club M Zahra can satisfy both young people and families. It is recommend to try a thalassa at small price.
On the seaside, 4 miles from Midoun and 12 miles from Houmt Souk. The airport is 19 miles away. Expect a half an hour trip.
The Club M Zahra is one of 4 facilities which have a total of 1,250 rooms, and a capacity of 2,800 during high season. This property, called Dar Djerba, is the biggest hotel group of the island. It is also one of the rare establishments in the form of a club to have a thalassa centre.
Adjacent to the covered swimming pool, the thalassa centre is equipped to receive up to 250 persons a day. It has complete facilities for hydromassage, affusion and jet showers, pressotherapy (to stimulate blood flow in the legs by using massage boots), electrotherapy, cryotherapy, (cold algae poultice) and shiatsu (stimulation by manual pressures of the lymphatic and nervous system).
When it comes to prices, it is more interesting if you book your wellness cure at the same time as your stay. Over a period of 3 days, with 3 treatments per day (hammam, thalassa care, massage). Those are grouped in the morning and the afternoon. The medical examination, which is necessary to avoid any potential countraindications, is included with your "all inclusive" formula.
Other cures and treatments can be selected on site, depending on the availability of the centre.
Opened in April 2004, the Zahra is part of 4 facilities in the Dar Djerba. They all share the same sports and leisure equipment, but each has its own restaurant and bar. The leisure facilities are found around the three outdoor swimming pools. 2 are side by side: the biggest (semi olympic size) and the thermal swimming pool, with its brown green water should not scare you. It is due to the components in this thermal water coming from the island. The sulfur and iron content is perfect to free up joints. Another outdoor swimming pool, close to the beach and the children's club is perfect for families. Finally, an indoor swimming pool, 2,152 ft², allows you to swim no matter the weather. The area surrounding the outdoor swimming pools are set for leaisure (parasols and lounge chairs), but the area is relatively small compared to the size of the property. Luckily, the beach is not far.
The 342 rooms of the Zahra are spread in bungalows touching each other, with ceilings ending in a vault or a cupola, like the traditional houses in Djerba. Each accommodation has a private patio, decorated with pink laurels, hibiscus or dwarf palm trees. The walls are sufficiently high to keep away onlookers. You will not be bothered by the passage of the other holidaymakers, but you do not have an open view. The furnishings, very simple, is in light colour wood. The amenities assure a sufficient level of comfort: air conditioning and telephone, bathtub in the bathroom. Note that there is no television, and safe service is available at the front desk (with extra fee). Standard rooms are not very spacious (172 ft²). It is better not to ask for an extra bed. The rooms for families measure about 215 ft².
The restaurant of the Zahra presents the half-board meals as buffets with stands for show cooking outside (grilled foods, beignets and Tunisian bread). People eat inside or on a terrace overlooking the bungalows. Be careful, most of the tables are for 4 to 8 persons and the space between the rows is quite limited. At the buffet, standard holiday fare is offered every day (pastas, French fries and salads), maybe too often. But a Tunisian evening allows you to sample homemade couscous and traditional pastries. The club M Zahra "all inclusive" package lets you enjoy local drinks and snacks for no extra charge.
The property of the Dar Djerba is bordered by a beach which is 1 mile long and 330 feet wide. The accommodation is well thought out, with straw parasols separated well away from each other, and lounge chairs. The sand on the beach is fine. On the other hand, there are some rock piles in the water. You must have plastic sandals to swim. The slope of the beach is gradual, so children can play at the edge without fear. Available water sports (sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, and parasailing) are all provided by an independent sailing club. These activities are therefore extra.
