Nordic design, Middle Eastern culture meet at LivNordic’s two-storey Katara Beach Club
POSTED 29 Sep 2017 . BY Jane Kitchen
LivNordic’s Katara Beach Club in Doha, Qatar, is set to open at the beginning of October. Located at the Torch Hotel, the two-storey, 4,600sq m (49,514sq ft) club is described as “a unique fusion between Middle Eastern hospitality, Nordic design and treatment heritage, and innovative fitness facilities.”

“Katara Beach Club is no ordinary club, we are wellness at its best – a stunning Nordic wellness gem seated in the heart of the emerging sports capital of the world,” said Richard Grew, general manager of the Katara Beach Club by LivNordic Spa & Wellness.

The club is outfitted with LivNordic’s ‘Wellness the Nordic Way’ concept, infusing the design, treatments, service and amenities of Nordic countries while being sensitive to the culture of the Middle East.

The spa is being operated as a club, with a focus on memberships and day guests, Anna-Cari Gund, managing director of Raison d’Etre, told Spa Opportunities.

It will include separate male and female floors with gender-separated entrances, an Aurora Borealis light fixture in the relaxation lounges, Nordic bathing rituals, imported handcrafted products from Sweden, the first snow grottos in Qatar, an extensive gym with functional fitness zones, indoor and outdoor infinity pools and a private beach. The spa also includes MO1 series spa tables from Gharieni.

A wide range of the latest group and functional fitness classes are being offered, and the club also features a private beach.

Katara Beach Club has been designed by StudioHBA, Dubai, who in conjunction with the Raison d’Etre team chose materials to reflect the Nordic countries. Copper, natural timbers, black slate and natural green walls were selected to highlight the Nordic love for nature and to bring a vision of the Nordic landscape with guests.

“Open to members as well as day guests to the club, guests will experience just how simple wellness can be, and be motivated to find the most effective way to achieve their own personal wellbeing goals,” said Grew.
