World's largest wellness village in Dubai

 

Dubai Healthcare City will launch the world's largest wellness concept village in its Phase 2 expansion in Al Jadaf Dubai. On the waterfront, the WorldCare Wellness Village will occupy an area equivalent to the size of 16 football fields, and is significantly larger in scale and offerings to current wellness properties in Europe and the USA.

The wellness concept is driven by US-based WorldCare International and developed by the Dubai-based MAG Group.

The Wellness Village in Phase 2 will drive wellness tourism together with medical tourism, boosting Dubai's diversified economy. It will bring together unique wellness concepts and specialized services such as rehabilitation, counselling, sports medicine and elderly care for both residents and visitors.

The WorldCare Wellness Village will focus on prevention and management of diseases such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes and other physical conditions. It will offer diagnosis and treatment plans, with two-to-six week medical programmes built around patient education and lifestyle change.

The village includes residential villas and apartments, as well as rental units to support long-term stay for both for local and foreign patients. The eco-friendly living spaces will serve wellness and rehabilitation needs through features such as therapy zero gravity pools, personalized spas, and rigorous exercise and diet facilities.

Within phase 2 will be a joint venture with developers Nshama to establish an integrated community, named Al Fursan, comprising premium apartments, serviced residences, 4 and 5 star hotels, and retail and leisure features.
