Dubai government-owned investment property developer Tatweer has unveiled plans to build a Dh3.7 billion wellness resort at the Dubai Healthcare City.
The Dubai Wellness Resort will be situated alongside the Creek in DHCC’s Wellness Cluster, and will serve as a centre for preventative and integrative medicine and the promotion of health-enhancing lifestyles.Features will include a rejuvenation centre for cosmetic services, a health centre for integrated medical services, an active lifestyle centre and sports medicine facility and residences designed for eco-friendly living. In addition, there will be a healthy lifestyle retail district and luxury hotels.
“The new wellness facility underpins our relentless endeavour to promote Dubai as the hub for healthcare excellence,” said Saeed Al Muntafiq, Executive Chairman of Tatweer.
“The resort will offer a continuum of care, facilitating patients’ referral to and from key components within DHCC, such as the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Academic Medical Centre and other medical establishments.”
The resort will bring together under one roof advanced approaches from the West, the East and the Arab World. It will be set in a sustainable, carbon-neutral environment and will offer innovative techniques in preventative medicine, the provision of timely and holistic patient management programmes and ongoing follow-up treatment.
The resort is expected to provide an additional incentive for boosting wellness tourism in the region.
Phase one of the city will be a centre for diagnosis and conventional treatment while phase two will focus on wellness therapies. Through the integration of the two sections, DHCC aims to offer holistic healthcare through disease prevention and management, health psychology and other services.
