The Palm Resort and Spa project was unveiled in November 2014, promising to become the region’s first wellness hospitality property. At a cost of about $136.2m, and comprising a basement, a ground level, and 255 rooms across seven storeys, this upcoming project is occupying its location at the East Crescent of Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah neighborhood.
Saju Kannu, cluster financial controller at R Hotels tells Construction Week website: “We can clearly identify the wellness approach isn’t currently [adopted] for resorts in Dubai”, adding that R Hotels will emphasize the concept through the project’s design and finishes. “The interior designs will be organic, and the focus will be on greenery and natural concepts”.
It worth noting that there will be certified nutritionists and wellness coaches to guide guests, young and old, through the programmes including weight loss, poor diet and suitable exercise regimes. Fitness classes at the resort & spa will include yoga, tai chi, pilates and aerobics.
Expected to open in April 2017, this four star resort has more to offer that this unique spa concept, it also will have a healthy concept restaurant serving meals and drinks from fresh and organic ingredients.
