Sof­i­tel col­lab­o­rates with The Ger­man Med­i­cal Well­ness As­so­ci­a­tion

Travel Daily ME - - News -

The Re­treat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sof­i­tel, the new­est ad­di­tion to Ac­corHo­tels’ dis­tinc­tive MGallery by Sof­i­tel col­lec­tion of con­tem­po­rary bou­tique ho­tels, is set to be­come the first holis­tic well­be­ing re­sort in the Mid­dle East.

The ex­cit­ing 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.

This col­lab­o­ra­tion has fol­lowed the re­cent part­ner­ship agree­ment signed with Dubai Health Author­ity (DHA) which is set to boost well­ness tourism in United Arab Emi­rates.

With Well­ness Tourism pro­jected to grow by more than 9% by year end (2017), nearly 50% faster than over­all global tourism, the mar­ket is well prepped for the open­ing of the UAE’s first holis­tic well­ness re­sort.

Part of MGallery by Sof­i­tel’s Seren­ity Col­lec­tion - an as­sort­ment of bou­tique ho­tels world­wide, The Re­treat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sof­i­tel prom­ises true re­lax­ation and restora­tive well­be­ing.

Sit­u­ated along the exclusive coast­line of Palm Jumeirah’s East Cres­cent, the beach­front des­ti­na­tion will show­case 255 lux­u­ri­ous rooms and suites. Guests will be able to en­joy world-class din­ing op­tions in­clud­ing a spe­cialty restau­rant high­light­ing lo­cal epi­curean del­i­ca­cies and a café - of­fer­ing a se­lec­tion of healthy food and bev­er­age op­tions made from lo­cal, or­gan­i­cally sourced prod­ucts.

The Ger­man Med­i­cal Well­ness As­so­ci­a­tion is a non-for-profit um­brella or­gan­i­sa­tion for Med­i­cal Well­ness in Ger­many. A key tar­get for the as­so­ci­a­tion is the de­vel­op­ment of in­ter­na­tional health ho­tels & re­sorts, the trade in goods and ser­vices in the med­i­cal tech­ni­cal di­vi­sion, tourism pro­grams, and in­ter­na­tional ex­change pro­grams.

Pres­i­dent Lutz Lung­witz wel­comes the col­lab­o­ra­tion and says, “The Re­treat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sof­i­tel is a unique con­cept in the area and will show­case a new way of health­tourism in the Mid­dle East, clos­ing the gaps that were once present for health and well­ness tourism, and po­si­tion­ing the UAE as an es­teemed well­ness des­ti­na­tion.”

Samir Arora, Gen­eral Man­ager, The Re­treat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sof­i­tel, said: “We are proud to in­tro­duce the first holis­tic well­ness re­sort in the UAE, the prop­erty pro­vides guests an un­ri­valed re­sort ex­pe­ri­ence, dif­fer­ent to any­thing else of­fered in the Mid­dle East. We are de­lighted to be recog­nised by an in­ter­na­tional body re­spon­si­ble for more than 20 years of suc­cess in ad­vanc­ing the well­ness con­cept world­wide. Well­ness is a sel­f­re­spon­si­ble strat­egy we are all ac­count­able for, The Re­treat Palm Dubai MGallery by Sof­i­tel al­lows for each guest to be­come an ar­chi­tect of his or her own well­ness.”
