Dubai Health inks MoU to drive wellness tourism

DUBAI, May 2, 2017

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sofitel Hotel, the first holistic health and wellness resort in the Middle East, with an aim to drive wellness tourism in the region.

This collaboration is in line with the vision of the Dubai Health Experience (DHX), which is overseen and implemented by the DHA. The MoU was signed in the presence of Shaikh Rashid Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, head of Municipality and Planning Department in Ajman.

DXH was launched in April 2016 by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, as a continuation of ‘Dubai, a Global Destination for Medical Tourism’ project. DXH is a highly integrated programme that aims to promote Dubai as a global centre for the provision of medical tourism services with a target of attracting half a million international patients by 2020. It is estimated that numbers will increase around 13 per cent per year and that by 2021 over 1.3 million medical tourists will visit Dubai.

Scheduled for soft opening in summer 2017, The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sofitel will promise travellers relaxation and tranquility within a natural retreat, with its architecture, design and services inspired by “Serenity” - one of the hallmarks indicative of the MGallery brand, a collection of boutique hotels both inspiring and individually styled where “art de reservoir” enhances local discovery and shapes memorable moments. Situated along the iconic coastline of Dubai Palm Jumeirah’s East Crescent, the 255-room upscale resort will offer a range of guestrooms and suites, as well as the first Rayya wellness center providing a range of all-inclusive retreat packages designed to improve mental and physical well-being, wellness facilities including a gym, yoga room, tennis court and swimming pool. Guests will also enjoy access to world-class wellness consultants and well-being treatments, in addition to bespoke nutritional programs available across the hotels’ four food and beverage venues, which include a soon-to-be-revealed juice bar and dining concept. - TradeArabia News Service
