Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba has enhanced its well-being experience for guests, with the addition of a boot camp, jogging track, and yoga area.
They complement the resort's health complex, which also features the Zara Spa Tala Bay and a fitness centre.
The well-being centre – a first amongst five-star resorts on Aqaba’s Red Sea coast – aims to attract guests who want an immersive experience of wellness, fitness, and healthy lifestyle choices on the beachfront.
A new shape, sculpt, and relaxation programme designed by the resort, makes use of the 250m jogging track. It commences with a power walk or jog and a cardiovascular warm-up.
This is followed by muscle-toning activities in the gym, which are supervised by the resort’s physical fitness instructor. Routines include working out with machines for weightlifting, muscle-building, and endurance elevation.
The boot camp comprises of eight outdoor obstacle courses, offers a combination of cross-fit and circuit exercises.
Along with suspension trainers, agility ladders, monkey bars, and battling rope, participants run through tyres, climb over a wooden wall, crawl under a net and flip tyres to build strength.
The new yoga area supports peaceful meditation and cool-down stretches in a natural environment. Zara Spa Tala Bay’s hydro pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam, and tranquility rooms are nearby.
“People have become more health-conscious for several years now, with a focus on engaging in alternative activities that promote well-being,” says general manager Dan Benzaquen.
“They are also more selective in their food choices, which is something that we cater for. Holidays at our resort are always pleasant, and the expansion of our fitness facilities allows our guests to add ‘healthier’ to that equation too,” he adds.
Along with an improved health complex, the five-star Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba offers a 150m private beach, three swimming pools, a dive centre and water sports. The 306 rooms with balconies offer views of the Red Sea, mountains, gardens, or pools.
