Scheduled to open in Qatar in early 2021, Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som marks a widely anticipated new venture for the international wellness resort brand.

Underpinned by Chiva-Som’s belief that wellness is for everyone, the retreat will open its state-of-the-art facilities to adults and children alike as it strives to introduce the next generation to world-class wellness, healthy lifestyle ideas, and pioneering new practices based on Traditional Arabic and Islamic Medicine (TAIM).

The Zulal Wellness Resort encourages guests to reconnect with quality time spent together by providing enhanced wellness support for all ages. The resort will function across two distinct areas: ‘Zulal Discovery’ and ‘Zulal Serenity’. The dedicated family Zulal Discovery will offer 120 guestrooms and suites, each anticipating the needs of the modern family from interconnected rooms to age-appropriate facilities including connecting rooms, one- to three-bedroom villas, nursery studios, children’s dance studio, family treatment rooms and a Family Wellness Centre.

Zulal’s Family Wellness Centre, Knooz Al Sahraa, translating to ‘Treasures of the Desert’, is dedicated, in concept and design, to the holistic development of children and the importance of family connection. An innovative and expertly tailored range of fun, interactive activities will encourage younger guests to engage with and explore good lifestyle habits, giving them the best possible foundations on which to build. Activities in education, sports, creativity and nutrition, have been conceived around the characteristics of desert animals, as metaphors for developing key life skills in a playful manner.

Designed for the resort’s youngest guests and their families, Zulal’s Nurture Kinder programme focuses on developing free expression, creativity and exploring physical movement, alongside learning the importance of healthy eating at a young age. With activities/packages such as The Hedgehog Nursery, the Junior Retreat, Adventure Teens Retreat, and the Family Package encourage families to spend together sampling a range of activities suitable for all ages.

Chairman and CEO of Chiva-Som, Mr Krip Rojanastien, said “we are excited to have developed a new offering with Zulal Wellness Resort, whilst remaining committed to our principles of delivering holistic, sustainable wellness programmes which provide lasting transformation of mind, body and spirit. The ability to serve families, in particular, offers guests great flexibility, and we hope it will inspire wellness for a new generation.”
