10 Mar 2023
Swiss health and wellness brand Clinique La Prairie has opened a Longevity Hub at The St. Regis Marsa Arabia Island, The Pearl - Qatar, a property developed by Alfardan Hospitality.

Debuted in 2020, the Longevity Hub is Clinique La Prairie’s urban facility concept providing medical, aesthetic and wellness services.

The recent opening in Qatar marks the arrival of the first Longevity Hub in the Middle East and the third globally, joining existing destinations in Madrid and Bangkok. The goal is to create a global network of these urban locations.

Clinique La Prairie is fast shaping itself into a global brand, having also recently outlined plans to open a luxury wellbeing resort at the vast Saudi giga-project Amaala as well as a flagship in China.

Simone Gibertoni, CEO of Clinique La Prairie, stated: “We’re delighted to open the doors of our new Longevity Hub in Doha where Clinique La Prairie’s unique expertise and technologies will support guests’ journeys to living fuller, healthier and longer lives.”

Zohour Omar Alfardan, head of development and lifestyle at Alfardan Hospitality, added: “As the first concept of its kind here in Qatar, the Longevity Hub is bringing premium wellness to discerning customers.”

Guests at the new Qatar location will have access to holistic assessments, wellbeing treatments, aesthetics services and hyper-personalised protocols designed by specialists to help them live healthier lives.

The location features luxury relaxation areas including a lounge and guests will get access and insight into the following areas:

• Longevity and nutrition: Medical specialists in longevity, epigenetics and nutrition will offer consultations and follow-ups to assess daily routines, give an in-depth insight into guests' state of health, and provide a tailor-made guide to overhaul their lifestyles.

• Aesthetics and beauty: To address cellular ageing inside and out, a team of aesthetic medicine specialists will combine expert knowledge and modern technology to provide a range of personalised treatments for lasting and effective results.

• Wellbeing: Guests' wellbeing concerns will be addressed with scientifically proven therapies and wellness practices that promote ongoing development. The menu features everything from body detox treatments and anti-ageing facials to massages claimed to enhance internal balance, all while drawing inspiration from regenerative sciences. Among the wellness methods available are IV drips, advanced infrared light therapy and cryotherapy.

• Movement: A comprehensive workout space completes the facility to ensure guests stay active. Every journey includes a tailored follow-up programme from a specialised coaching team. They advise guests on how to achieve their personal goals and provide tailored guidance on how to stay healthy.

Spa and wellness equipment supplier Gharieni Group provided the following equipment to the hub; an MLX iDome; an MLX Quartz; an MLR Transform; a 601 series; an MLW F1 series; and Gharieni furniture.
