Chiva-Som International Health Resort will open Zulal Wellness Resort, a wellness destination in Qatar in mid-2020. It will be the largest wellness destination in the country, the Middle East’s first full-immersion wellness resort, and the world’s first centre for Traditional Arabic Integrative Medicine (TAIM)
Qatar developer Msheireb Properties has appointed Chiva-Som to operate and manage the resort in Khasooma, a private coastal location to the north of Qatar.
This is the first management and operating contract undertaken by wellness resort brand Chiva-Som, whose flagship is in Hua Hin, Thailand.
Zulal Wellness Resort is one hour’s drive from Qatar’s international hub of Doha. Reflecting Arabic values, Zulal Wellness Resort will actively cater for families alongside its adults-only offer. Underpinned by the belief that wellness is for everyone, the estate will feature a family wellness resort with 120 guestrooms and suites. The adjacent wellness resort with 60 suites and villas will cater for individuals, couples and groups of adult wellness travellers.
Staying true to Chiva-Som’s core principles, the resort will operate sustainably and adhere to environmentally friendly practices, as well as using some locally developed speciality products.
