Chiva-Som announces official launch of Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som

The world’s most extensive traditional Arabic and Islamic medicine and the first family wellness offering in Qatar

A global pioneer in wellness and transforming lifestyles, Chiva-Som has announced the official opening of Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som on March 29, 2022. Zulal Wellness Resort is Qatar’s largest wellness destination, featuring the world’s first contemporary showcase of Traditional Arabic & Islamic Medicine (TAIM). The resort offers Zulal Serenity which is dedicated to adult guests, together with Zulal Discovery, which invites families to connect and embark on a wellness journey together.

The resort is managed by Chiva-Som, a globally acclaimed pioneer in wellness and lifestyle transformation with 26 years’ experience honed at its flagship resort in Hua Hin, Thailand. Zulal, the first full-immersion wellness resort in Qatar, and the largest in the Middle East, has been brought to life by Qatar’s premier master developers, Msheireb Properties.

At Zulal Wellness Resort, there are two distinct paths to achieving wellness goals: Zulal Serenity and Zulal Discovery. Zulal Serenity is the adults-only area of the resort for guests aged 16 and above, with 60 rooms and suites offering a calming backdrop to individual journeys of wellness. Programmes are tailored to individual health needs, whether for relaxation, detox, weight management or fitness, with seven programmes on offer for adults. Extensive wellness facilities include thermal and hydrotherapy suites, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, spa suites, a well-equipped gymnasium, exercise studios, a state-of-the-art physiotherapy studio and an aesthetics centre. Zulal Discovery caters to guests seeking family experiences and to make wellness an integral part of the family bond, with programmes customised for multi-generations and specific age groups. Facilities have been designed by child and family specialists to bring families together. Accommodation is offered in a range of set-ups across 120 rooms and suites.

At Zulal Wellness Resort, guests embark on wellness retreats which are personalised to their health needs and lifestyle goals. All wellness retreats are inclusive of accommodation, all meals, a health and wellness consultation, daily treatments, and unlimited access to wellness facilities and group activities. And with a digital-detox policy in public areas, the vastness of the desert surrounding, and the ocean within view from every room, guests are able to fully disconnect and naturally re-energise.

Family programmes are centred around wellness for the whole family, teaching children the value of a healthy and sustainable lifestyle with age-appropriate developmental activities. While younger children are encouraged to explore, with nature-based outings, arts and crafts, older children spend their time being active, with kayaking, dancing and personal training. Balancing physical, mental and emotional elements of wellness, they will also be introduced to meditation and healthy cuisines. Retreats are divided by age groups, with four for children, and more for parents and grandparents.
