Amy Adejokun Section editor

Hammamet's first 5 star Prestige hotel, The Russelior could have easily snapped up a sixth star without any hang-ups in this area bursting with family club hotels. Having opened in April 2010, this hotel is on a mission to give the luxury hotel sector both in Tunisia and abroad a new image, a far cry from the bling-bling luxury of certain other establishments. The very successful result of its endeavours certainly makes this hotel worth a stay, or at least a visit so you can see its spectacular lobby!

    Location 6.5 /10

    Nestled at the heart of the touristic zone of Yasmine Hammamet (the most recent in the area), The Russelior stands some 200m from the beach and its marina. Transfer time from Tunis airport is around 45 minutes, whilst Monastir airport is around an hour away. You might also be interested to know that the hotel is 2.5 mi from the Citrus and Yasmine golf clubs.

    Accommodation 8.50 /10

    Although the layout of the entrance hall was completely altered, most of the guest rooms have been kept as they were, with the exception of a handful that were sacrificed for the greater good! In fact, 13 new suites were created, consisting of 7 Junior, 4 Ambassador, 1 Presidential, and 1 Royal. The hotel's 224 Standard and Superior guest rooms are divided among 2 floors and feature the same tasteful decor as the communal areas: marble floors, rugs, velour-padded furniture, organic bedding and a velour bedspread, stylish lighting fixtures (plastic in some of the suites), etc.
    In terms of amenities, you'll really be hard-pushed to find anything to fault here, with a giant plasma screen television complete with keypad and information system (reception program, restaurant menu, etc.), 2 phones, a self-service minibar, a large electronic safe, and even a basket of fruit, among other things, all provided for your comfort. One slightly disappointing element, though, is the apparent lack of originality in the bathrooms, which come with a bathtub, a separate toilet, a phone, a selection of Russelior-brand hospitality products, a magnifying mirror, bathrobes, and slippers. Unfortunately, the balconies do not have views of the sea but rather of the entrance or the hotel's delightful gardens.

    Overview 8.25 /10

    Visitors to the Russelior are greeted by a charming fountain surrounded by a bed of red flowers, followed by a red carpet and revolving door leading you into the luxurious lobby. No doubt about it - this is certainly an upmarket establishment! Once inside the grand lobby, however, it won't take you long to realise that the Russelior is no ordinary luxury hotel. Its marble floors shine like diamonds, just like its ultra-trendy though slightly baroque and neo-retro furniture, designed exclusively for the hotel by architect and decorator Karim Berrached.
    The hotel's communal areas may provide entirely different surroundings, but they are united under the Russelior seal by a common thread, namely the logo, the style of the furniture, and the choice of fabrics used, such as velour and silk. Every inch of this place simply oozes luxury, even down to the stylish deckchairs arranged along the 2 outdoor pools, the magnificent spa, complete with 20 wet and dry treatment rooms, and the new generation gym.

    Food and drink 8.00 /10

    A little bridge leads across to the hotel's 64-seater all marble, stone and wood Asian restaurant. Here you will find 2 sushi bars, a show cooking area, and cuisine as elaborate as the decor. The small interior garden, with its giant bonsai tree, is worth a special mention. The main restaurant is guaranteed to make an impression and has been designed almost entirely in marble!
    The choice of decor, with tables adorned with tablecloths and an orchid, yellow and violet armchairs, chandeliers, etc., does tend to detract from the size of the restaurant, which can accommodate 200-250 diners (including the terrace). This place oozes elegance, right down to the organic food served with the buffet. If this sounds a little too formal for you though, why not try the poolside barbecue, where you certainly won't find any plastic garden furniture, but rather 100% rattan tables and chairs. When it comes to bars, guests here will have the choice between the lobby bar and the poolside bar.

    Beach 7.75 /10

    The Russelior complex stands some 200m from the beach. You won't find any carriage transfers available here; on the contrary, guests are ferried back and forth in an electric golf buggy. Although the beach wasn't quite finished when we visited, the unanimous consensus was that it will undoubtedly be as superb as the rest of the establishment. Plans for it are believed to include palm trees, pergolas, a bar, a barbecue, and even a floating landing stage. In terms of the setting, guests at the Russelior will enjoy the same fine sand as other holidaymakers on the beach but with the added bonus of luxurious wooden deckchairs You might also be interested to know that you can even enjoy a massage in this heavenly setting.

    To know

    It took two and a half years to transform this former Moroccan-style hotel, built in the late 90s, into a luxury establishment worthy of 2010. Not content with being the only establishment of its calibre in Hammamet, The Russelior is also the only one to not serve alcohol in its bars and restaurants, and to prohibit smoking throughout the premises. An eco-friendly hotel that uses organic products, it was awarded the Tunisian government's first energy-saving prize. You won't find any organised entertainment here, as The Russelior is run like a town hotel, despite its extremely tourist-oriented surroundings.

        Je suis allée au Russelior avec mon pere et mon petit frère. Malheureusement il n'y avait pas beaucoup de monde, mais le staff était d'une incroyable gentillesse!! La nourriture succulente... Nous avons rarement aussi bien mangé. Aussi, Sala, le coach de la salle de sport a été vraiment super! Et pour les soin, le kinésithérapeute et la masseuse et femme pour les soins, Gazella, sont vraiment recommandés!!! Gazella m'a donnée un tout autre visage rien qu'en un seul soin.

        sCet hôtel fut pour moi la plus découverte de ce pays . Le terme qui pourrait s'approprier le plus aisément pour qualifier cet endroit est bien être. Un bonheur de chaque instant : ses piscines, ses prestations, ses repas. Tout est pensé afin que leur hôte garde un souvenir mémorable de ce séjour. Ecologiquement cet endroit est le reflet même de toutes ces nouvelles technologies mises au services de chacun afin de préserver l'environnement.

      A modern hotel that does not deserve its 5-star category. Even though the nmerous entertainment will please the children and the parents and that the beach is close by, you should not expect great luxury. This is why Easyvoyage takes two stars away from it but recommends it to families wanting to have fun and rest at low cost.
