Thalassotherapy thermal sea water treatments
Thalassotherapy was invented by the Greeks but the Carthaginians took warm sea water treatment to a whole new level well before Romans developed their Thermae (Roman baths). The treatments are carried out under medical supervision and aim at rebalancing the metabolism and providing a soothing and relaxing action using the minerals contained in sea water. There is no better way to take a relaxing break during your vacation than adding a Thalassotherapy treatment break.

Moorish bath houses, also known in Tunisia as Hammams
The Hammam takes its roots in Roman times, where sculpted rooms and elaborate decoration created a relaxing atmosphere for these ancestral steam baths. The Hammam are a daily tradition for many Tunisians. This is an intimate experience with local culture and a fantastic way to delve deeper into local habits and Tunisian culture.
