Take a first look inside Qatar’s largest luxury wellness resort

The first full-immersion wellness destination resort in Qatar is set to open this Spring.

The Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som is located in the private coastal region of Khasooma, to the north of Qatar, and draws heavily on the natural materials and elements of its coastal desert setting. 

The resort, developed by Msheireb Properties, looks to be every bit as luxurious as the flagship Chiva-Som based in Hua Hin, Thailand.

Blending into its sand dune surroundings, pathways are engraved with Sidr leaves, a tree known for its valuable healing properties. 

Landscaping will feature ponds and water features arranged around a series of choreographed shaded walled gardens. Zulal is an Arabic word which means ‘pure natural water.’ 

It’s the latest in a string of luxury wellness resorts set to open in 2021.

The Zulal Wellness Resort will be the largest in the region

To better blend with its coastal desert setting, Zulal will utilise salt-tolerant and local plants such as the Avicennia Marina; one of the largest and oldest mangrove species.  Qatar is one of the Middle East’s conservatory landscapes for these unique trees and Zulal is committed to the preservation of these mangrove environments. 

Attention to detail is high. Earth tones accented by blue hues and shades of traditional wood are used throughout the resort’s rooms and living spaces to enhance relaxation, while light and airy interiors reflect the clarity and purity of its picturesque landscape. 

A Family Wellness area will enable families to enjoy positive wellness experiences together, allowing young children and their parents with fun, interactive activities that help them learn more about adopting a healthy lifestyle

 “We are very excited and proud to have developed a new offering with Zulal,” says Chairman and CEO of Chiva-Som, Mr. Krip Rojanastien, “the first in the world to showcase Traditional Arabic and Islamic Medicine (TAIM), whilst retaining the inimitable Chiva-Som DNA. The ability to serve families in particular offers guests great flexibility, and we hope it will inspire wellness for a new generation.”
