Get fit at Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba

In an effort to highlight the importance of living healthy, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba has further enhanced its wellbeing experience for guests. The hotel has an addition of a boot camp, jogging track and yoga area which complement the resort’s health complex, ZARA Spa Tala Bay and fitness centre.

The comprehensive wellbeing centre aims to attract beachfront guests who want an immersive experience of wellness, fitness and healthy lifestyle choices.

A new shape, sculpt and relaxation programme designed by the resort starts with a powerwalk or jog and a cardiovascular warm-up. This is followed by muscle-toning activities in the gym, which are supervised. Routines include working out with machines for weightlifting, muscle-building and endurance elevation.

The boot camp – comprising eight obstacle courses in outdoors – offers a combination of cross-fit and circuit exercises. Along with facing suspension trainers, agility ladders, monkey bars and battling rope, participants run through tyres, climb over a wooden wall, crawl under a net and flip tyres.

The new yoga area offers guests an opportunity to relax in mind, body and spirit. The secluded garden supports meditation and stretches in a natural green environment. The ZARA Spa Tala Bay’s hydro pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam and tranquillity room also ease muscle tension and aid relaxation.

“People have become more health-conscious for several years now, with a focus on engaging in alternative activities that promote wellbeing,” says Dan Benzaquen, general manager. “They are also more selective in their food choices, which is something that we cater for.”

The property also offers 306 rooms with balconies along with additional facilities such as a private beach, three large swimming pools, dive centre and water sports.
