GOCO Hospitality to create advanced medical wellness destination in Kazakhstan

by Jane Kitchen | 25 Jun 2019

International wellness consultancy, development and management firm GOCO Hospitality is working on a wellness resort in a heritage property in Kazakhstan that was once one of the most advanced sanatoriums during the Soviet era.

Now, the Foundation of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan has entrusted GOCO Hospitality to develop the property into a next-generation wellness resort.

Due to have its soft opening in July 2020, GOCO Life Alatau in Almaty, Kazakhstan, will be located on 100 hectares of forested land with views of the Alatau Mountains. The resort will have a gross floor area of 45,000sq m and 212 guest rooms, and is being designed by local firm INK Architects along with GOCO’s in-house design team, led by Josephine Leung.

“This is a really exciting project, and we are very much looking forward to creating Central Asia’s leading centre for medical and wellness tourism here in beautiful Almaty,” said Ingo Schweder, founder and CEO of GOCO Hospitality. “The location is truly perfect for a wellness resort, with the air and water being so fresh, and the stunning natural surroundings incredibly vitalising.”

The key attraction of the resort will be the 4,000sq m medical and wellness centre, which will provide guests with access to state-of-the-art medical diagnostics, imaging and treatment equipment, along with a team of qualified medical and wellness professionals.

This will be combined with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), an advanced medical aesthetics centre, hydrotherapy, a dedicated spa and extensive heat and water experiences. Guests will enjoy tailored wellness programmes that support them in their goal of living their healthiest possible life.

A 2,000sq m thermae will provide family-friendly activities, with an aqua park, a thermal circuit and indoor and outdoor pools fed with natural mineral spring water.

Guests will also be able to dine at any of the resort’s four health-focused food and beverage outlets, and the adjacent 18-hole golf course and extensive local hiking routes allow for leisurely outdoor recreation.

An indoor gym and mind and body studio will be complemented by outdoor tennis and basketball courts and a jogging track.

GOCO Life Alatau will also include around 1,900sq m of modern meetings and events spaces to host for a wide range of events, from conferences and business meetings to weddings and other gatherings.

A core value of GOCO Life Alatau will be supporting a more democratic form of wellness, with an improved health status and lifestyle being made available to a wide range of guests.

However, VIP guests at GOCO Life Alatau will also enjoy the privacy of their very own VIP wing, with highly luxurious accommodation, and dedicated meeting, medical and spa facilities.
