The ability to serve families offers guests great flexibility, and we hope it'll inspire wellness for a new generation

Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-som will open in Qatar in early 2021 with a family resort, underpinned by Chiva-Som’s belief that wellness is for everyone.

Resort facilities

The retreat will offer wellness facilities powered by Traditional Arabic and Islamic Medicine, consisting of two areas: Zulal Serenity and Zulal Discovery.

The latter will be a 120-room family destination including family treatment rooms, a group dance studio and a family wellness centre called Knooz Al Sahraa, translating to 'Treasures of the Desert’.

Zulal Discovery will be dedicated in concept and design to the holistic development of children and the importance of family connection.

Family-friendly programmingA range of interactive activities in education, sports, creativity and nutrition will encourage younger guests to explore and build healthy lifestyle habits.

Programming has been conceived around the characteristics of desert animals as metaphors for developing key life skills in a playful manner.

For example, spaces such as The Oryx Workshop, symbolising the strength and endurance of the desert oryx, will focus on playful exercises such as dancing and nutrition, with opportunities to learn about herbs and local cooking methods.

In addition, The Fox’s Den will help build cognitive development through physical and brain training exercises as well as focusing on creativity through arts and crafts.

The Falcon Studio will also help to foster stronger connections and promote bonding through curated experiences and activities that reinvigorate growth as a family unit.

Retreats for all ages

Offering a holistic approach to health and wellness rooted in Arabic healing traditions, Zulal’s spa menu will feature over 400 treatments.

This will include a Junior Retreat for young children promoting self-discovery with culinary activities and wellness therapies, ranging from Reiki and head and shoulder massages, to mindfulness and breathing meditation.

A curated Adventure Teens Retreat will also promote a healthy approach to young adulthood with guided activities from Thai Boxing Fit, bike rides, Hatha yoga and beach meditation.

In addition, Zulal will offer a Nurture Kinder programme for young children and a nursery for infants.

Chair and CEO of Chiva-Som, Krip Rojanastien, said: “We’re excited to have developed a new offering.

"The ability to serve families offers guests great flexibility, and we hope it will inspire wellness for a new generation.”

Wellness architectureChiva-Som has also recently revealed details about the destination’s biophilic architecture, which will incorporate natural materials, indigenous botanicals and elements of its coastal desert setting.

The design vision aims to strengthen guests’ connection to nature and draw on its positive biological impacts including reducing stress, lowering blood pressure and heart rate, while increasing creativity and overall wellbeing.

This desire has also inspired the implementation of soothing seawater lagoons and oases throughout the resort to evoke a sense of tranquillity. This decision was also spurred on by the destinations name which translates to ‘purified water’.
