The largest wellness destination in the country and the Middle East’s first fully immersive wellness resort, the property is to be the world’s first centre for Traditional Arabic Islamic Medicine (TAIM) located in Khasooma, a private coastal area north of the country.
The collaboration between Msheireb Properties and market-leading wellness resort brand Chiva-Som will shape the face of the wellness tourism industry in the region and establish its first wellbeing haven.
Spread across 280,000 square metres, the resort will be the world’s first centre for Traditional Arabic Integrative Medicine (TAIM), featuring a Family Wellness Resort of 120 elegant guestrooms and suites, and an adults-only resort of 60 suites and villas, catering to guests of all ages and needs.
The name “Zulal”, which refers to “purified water”, is inspired by the people’s historic journey across the Arabian Peninsula and their ever-present search for water, the seed of life. Drawing on Chiva-Som’s philosophy on holistic wellness, the resort presents the opportunity for families to experience, learn and practice wellness together, effectively introducing children to healthy living from an early age, as well as offering individuals and couples the exclusivity of totally immersing in the ultimate wellness retreat.
