Star Wars fans will be very familiar with some of Anantara Tozeur Resort's panoramas, as the southern Tunisian desert around Tozeur served as the filming locations for numerous scenes of the epic space trilogies created by George Lucas. Guests have the opportunity to visit some of the filming locations from the first and second trilogies, when they book the resort’s Tatooine Journey package.

Design - The resort blends modern and Moorish architecture with a series of keyhole archway spaces, a mosaic infinity water feature and a deconstructed chandelier dominating the reception area. The rooms feature a subtle interweaving of Berber patterns, North African furnishings, materials, textures and desert colours Every detail, from marble floor patterns, to inlaid timber screens and traditional fret-cut lighting, highlights Tunisia’s rich heritage.
