Why Stay at Zulal Wellness Resort?
Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som is a pioneering wellness destination in the Middle East that blends Traditional Arabic & Islamic Medicine (TAIM) with a holistic health and well-being philosophy, established by Chiva-Som, the internationally acclaimed wellness resort in Thailand. Situated in an exclusive natural setting on the northern coastal tip of Qatar surrounded by the Arabian Gulf, this private 280,000 sq.m resort offers two distinct yet interconnecting experiences dedicated to physical, mental and emotional health. Zulal Serenity is dedicated to adult guests seeking an immersive health and lifestyle reset, while Zulal Discovery invites families and friends to connect and embark on a wellness journey together.
Zulal Wellness: At Zulal, guests benefit from Traditional Arabic & Islamic Medicine (TAIM) – an ancient lifestyle philosophy that nurtures health and spiritual well-being with nutrition, mind-body therapies, physical movement, herbal medicine and connection with nature. Qatari culture and customs are integrated throughout. Resident Health Practitioners from all over the world offer a range of skills from Naturopathic Medicine to Ayurveda. Guests are guided on a wellness journey that inspires lifestyle change through personal consultations and tailored therapy programmes that consider each individual’s physical, mental and emotional being.
Zulal Gastronomy: Following the passion that healthy eating sustains a wholesome way of life, full of energy and longevity, all the restaurants at Zulal offer a transformative culinary journey through balanced dishes, combining flavour and fresh locally-sourced produce with nutritional excellence.
Zulal Serenity: A sanctuary with calm and private spaces dedicated to guests aged 16 and above, who are invited to experience Zulal’s six wellness pillars: Physiotherapy, Nutrition, Holistic Health, Fitness, Spa, and Aesthetics via retreat programmes, treatments, and activities. 60 elegant rooms and suites offer a serene backdrop for quiet and meaningful contemplation. The wellness centre, hydrothermal suite, gymnasium, movement studios, various pools, quiet spaces and the exclusive all-day dining Al Sidr restaurant and tea house are all designed to give a refined, sensory, and luxurious experience. Guests can choose between transformative retreats from weight loss and fitness to beauty and calming relaxation.

Zulal Discovery: The family side of the resort follows Zulal’s exclusive ‘Family Wellness’ philosophy, achieved through special activity, dietary and treatment programmes and facilities designed to support individuals and bring families together in a journey of healthy lifestyle discovery: to learn, experience and share.

Families can enjoy access to hydrothermal rooms, separate male and female gyms, movement studios, indoor plunge pools and an outdoor swimming pool, treatments and energy-based therapies.
