The ‘Desert Detox’ revealed: How to enjoy a healthy holiday in Qatar
Qatar Tourism invites travellers to renew and rejuvenate in the new year with holistic and natural wellness escapes. The perfect place to cleanse the mind, nourish the body, and heal the soul, here’s how Qatar’s abundance of spas, activities, and relaxing excursions combine to create a transformational ‘desert detox’ healthy holiday.
Chief Operating Officer of Qatar Tourism, Berthold Trenkel, said: “Mental health and wellness is becoming more of a necessity than a trend, and Qatar is filling that demand by introducing world-class wellness facilities and activities. Qatar’s new Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som is the largest wellness destination in the Middle East. From having a spa under the stars, or going glamping out under our impressive sand dunes, to taking sunset yoga classes, Qatar offers an outstanding ‘desert detox’ break to work on a new you.”
