The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sofitel targets wellness

The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sofitel is aiming to be the first holistic well-being resort in the Middle East.

The new property is scheduled for soft launch in summer 2017 and has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the German Medical Wellness Association.

The MoU was signed in presence of Lutz Lungwitz, president of German Medical Wellness Association and Vanessa Waldow, director of sales and marketing, The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sofitel. This collaboration has followed a recent partnership agreement signed with Dubai Health Authority (DHA) which is set to boost wellness tourism in UAE. With Wellness Tourism projected to grow by more than nine percent by year end (2017), nearly 50% faster than overall global tourism, the market is well prepped for opening of the UAE’s first holistic wellness resort.

The property will offer 255 rooms and suites including dining options such as a specialty restaurant highlighting local delicacies and a unique café – offering a selection of healthy food and beverage options made from local, organically sourced products.

The hotel will also host the world’s first ever Rayya Wellness Center offering all-inclusive retreat packages. Rayya Fitness will also showcase a gym, tennis court and yoga rooms while the Rayya Spa will offer wellbeing therapies and signature spa treatments.
