Overview

Newly opened in 2021 Zulal Wellness Resort is the Middle East's first dedicated wellness resort, operated by Chiva Som, who have been offering holistic wellness at their world famous resort in Thailand for twenty five years. It has all the expertise and facilities you would imagine to embark on your personalised wellness journey. Zulal is also the world's first centre for Traditional Arabic Integrative Medicine (TAIM).

The resort is separated into two distinct structures with their own facilities. Zulal Serenity is for guests over the age of 16 and is designed for a private and calm atmosphere that allows for a transformational experience.

Zulal Discovery is for families where tailor-made programmes and dedicated facilities encourage parents

and children of all ages to rest their lifestyle to achieve more health and wellbeing for the whole family.

When to go

Qatar guarantees sunshine all year round. It's best to avoid peak summer (July and August) as it gets very hot. The high season is from October to April when outdoor and daytime activities are popular.
