MGallery debuts new properties with wellness focus

by Jane Kitchen | 28 Dec 2017

MGallery is expanding its collection, with 32 hotel openings in the next five years, making it the fastest-growing brand within the AccorHotels luxury portfolio.

The brand has opened three hotels recently: The Retreat Palm Dubai, the Tarcin Forest Resort & Spa, and the Victory House London Leicester Square.

The Retreat Palm Dubai is the first MGallery property in the Middle East and is billed as a 360-degree holistic wellbeing resort. Located on the coastline of Palm Jumeirah’s East Crescent, the hotel includes 255 bedrooms, all designed with natural elements, earth tones and Feng Shui principles.

At the heart of the resort is the Rayya Wellness Centre, which offers holistic tailor-made health and wellbeing programmes and packages, a luxury spa, fitness centre and gym, wellness clinic and a variety of recreation facilities.

The Rayya Wellness Centre also offers guidance from a team of 'dream makers' and lifestyle consultants as well as detox retreats.

The spa uses organic, toxin-free products for its locally inspired treatments, which include an Arabian Desert Ritual and a Five Herbs and Honey Milk Wrap. A hammam, whirlpool, acupressure stone walk and infinity pool are also on-site.

The fitness centre includes nutrition, mind/body fitness classes, yoga, BMI tests, music and art workshops and mother and baby wellness activities.

Children can also take part in a wide variety of workshops related to health, fitness and the environment, and an on-site children's wellness library helps them learn about health and fitness, while children's cooking classes focus on healthy food. Rayya Kids’ wellness programmes promise "a scientific approach to sedentary lifestyle".

MGallery has also opened the Tarcin Forest Resort & Spa in Sarajevo, the first MGallery in the Balkans. The resort is a contemporary curved building designed to blend in with the natural landscape.

Located in the Tarcin forests, the resort includes a spa dedicated to holistic care of the guests, with saunas, Turkish baths, a fitness room and a spring water swimming pool with views on the mountain tops.

The Victory House, London Leicester Square has also recently opened. Designed in partnership with architects Michaelis Boyd, the hotel’s interior has been crafted to capture the rich cinematic history of its location.
