Chiva-Som to open Middle Eastern wellness destination in Qatar

by Megan Whitby | 23 Oct 2019

Chiva-Som International Health Resort has announced the 2020 launch of its Zulal Wellness Resort in Qatar.

Expected in Q2 next year, the Middle Eastern wellness destination will feature traditional Arabic Integrative Medicine (TAIM).

Qatar-based Msheireb Properties are developing the property and appointed Chiva-Som to operate and manage the resort at the private coastal location of Khasooma in North Qatar.

Chiva-Som International Health Resort chairman and CEO, Krip Rojanastien, said: “This is the first time we have embarked on a management and operating contract since the opening of our Hua Hin resort in 1995.

“We are excited and proud to have created something completely new, whilst retaining the Chiva-Som DNA at every touchpoint. The ability to serve families, in particular, offers guests great flexibility, and we hope it will inspire wellness for a new generation”.

The resort is designed to cater to guests of all ages and will include a 120-guestroom family wellness resort. There will also be an adjacent adults-only wellness resort with 60 suites and villas.

Following Chiva-Som’s eco-friendly philosophy, the resort will operate sustainably and adhere to environmentally-conscious practices.

Landscaping will feature ponds and water features arranged around a series of serene shaded walled gardens; a narrative inspired by seabound travellers finding welcoming shelter in local villages.

Ali Al Kuwari, Msheireb Properties acting CEO, said: “This partnership enables us to provide the best in ancient Arabic medicine, not just in Qatar, but across the entire region. Zulal Wellness Resort will no doubt contribute to the growth of wellness tourism in the country.”
