Perfect Shangri-la : the Tamerza Palace in the desert is one of most luxurious hotels in Tunisia. The architecture of the Tamerza Palace blends perfectly with the crumbling desert mountains against which it is set. It sits dramatically above the abandoned village and oasis of Tamerza. The interior is a masterpiece of simple design, well suited to the barrenness of the desert, which sprawls beyond its walls.
At the gates of the Sahara desert, less than 70 km from Tozeur’s airport, it is the absolute destination to relax and discover nature’s exceptional beauty. The Tamerza Palace was conceived in the spirit of a large convivial residence that integrates harmoniously with the environment.
All areas of this peaceful Oasis were designed to preserve the guests intimacy and to recharge one’s batteries.
Far from modern nuisances, we learn here to listen to silence. We allow ourselves to be bewitched, as by delight, by the magic of the place.
Inside the hotel, a love of local culture is on display. Large, brightly colored and boldly patterned Berber rugs decorate the common areas, and ceramics by area artisans and oil paintings of regional subjects grace the walls.
As late afternoon turns to evening and the ruins are slowly gilded, the breezes waft up the hill the plaintive songs of doves and the bells and bleating of goats being herded home.
