The Anantara Tozeur Resort, the upcoming project by Anantara Hotels & Resorts in Tunisia, expected to open in late 2019 with 93 guest rooms and villas will be located right next to the original sets of the 1977 original classic Star Wars.

In addition to that, the property will also feature Tunisian and Thai speciality restaurants, swimming pools and a fitness centre, Anantara Spa with hammam, desert expeditions and ballroom and meeting facilities.

Guests can drive across the Chott el Djerid, the Sahara’s largest salt lake.  Daytrips across the desert include visits to the abandoned villages of Chebika, Tamerza, and Mides, and the film set of the original Star Wars.
