Once upon a time there was Abu Nawas ..
Laico Tunis - Ex Abu Nawas Tunis - a Landmarking hotel in Tunisia:
It is under the impulse of the Kuwaiti ambassador in Tunisia, Majran Al Hamad, that the CTKD launches out in the tourism sector via equity investments in hotels.
The creation of the Abou Nawas chain takes the form of a series of hotel and club constructions: 19 units from four to five stars, with accommodation capacity of more than 6 000 beds, the management of which is outsourced to '' a subsidiary called Soges.
Abu Nawas Tunis (now Laico Tunis) was Built by Olivier-Clément Cacoub and Yves Roa, located in the heart of downtown Tunis, Facing the Palais des Congres and bordering the business and finance district. The hotel had 313 rooms including 31 suites and was honored to welcome world stars such as Mickel Jakson, Nelson Mondela, Monica Belluci, etc.
The Tunisian state owned 59.99% of the capital of the Tunisian Congress Society (STC) managing the hotel. As part of its privatization policy, several groups have expressed interest in buying back state shares. Following the sale of STC's capital to the Libyan African Investment Company (LAICO) in October 2007, and the withdrawal of Soges, the hotel left the chain and took the name of Hôtel des Congrès Tunis and finally Laico Tunis Hotel - the most emblematic hotel in Tunisia.
