Qatar’s largest wellness destination also announces winter ‘Wellness Plus’ offer including free nights and treatment credits on all retreats until 31 March 2023

The Middle East’s first full immersion wellness resort, Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som, has welcomed the approaching New Year by unveiling a New You Retreat to help guests restore balance and reaffirm goals for a happier, healthier year. Available in three- and five-night durations until 31 March 2023, the new retreat has been especially designed by the resort’s resident physician Dr. Syed Shadab Ahmed to guide guests towards a path of sustainable change and support them on their personal wellness journey.

“The New Year is a good time to set health and wellness goals, whether to lose weight, relieve stress, or boost physical performance”, says Dr. Syed. “Many individuals only manage to maintain their New Year’s resolutions for a few weeks, but because our approach to wellness is holistic and long term, we devise sustainable programmes for our guests that can be easily integrated into their daily lives for lasting transformation.”

Guided by a team of wellness consultants, personal trainers, holistic therapists and nutritionists, the New You Retreat begins with a consultation to ascertain a guest’s health concerns and goals. Then, according to their Traditional Arabic & Islamic Medicine (TAIM) temperament, a highly personalised programme of calming practices is holistically balanced with invigorating activities, physical therapies and bespoke nutritional guidance to inspire, establish and reinforce resolutions for change.

Fitness sessions range from personal and aqua training to yoga and Tai Chi, while gentle treatments such as therapeutic massage and hijama cupping are complimented with daily spa treatments and meditation practices. Throughout the programme, and beyond, guests are inspired and encouraged to integrate sustainable change in their daily lives.

Zulal Wellness Resort is also celebrating the arrival of 2023 with a ‘Wellness Plus’ promotion, offering free extra nights and complimentary treatment credits across its range of retreats for stays until 31 March 2023.
