Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som

Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som is the Middle East’s first and largest immersive wellness destination. Established by the acclaimed Thai wellness resort Chiva-Som, it is the first in the world to uniquely blend the holistic wisdom of Traditional Arabic and Islamic Medicine (TAIM) with modern therapies and health practices. TAIM is a holistic healing system recorded in The Canon of Medicine, a medical encyclopedia written in 1025 by the Persian physician-philosopher Ibn Sina, whose writings influenced schools of medicine for centuries. It includes the use of medicinal herbs, and therapies such as hijama cupping. The revival of this knowledge, reinterpreted for the 21st century, is a pioneering approach to reclaiming cultural heritage and redefining wellness. Zulal Wellness Resort offers two distinct experiences. Zulal Serenity is dedicated to adult guests seeking a bespoke and immersive retreat, while Zulal Discovery invites families to connect and jointly explore the joys of healthy living. The overarching aim of both Zulal Serenity and Zulal Discovery is to inspire positive and sustainable lifestyle change.
