Bridge Wellness Hub is set to become the largest wellness offering in the Middle East, according to its developer
Al Qana, the upcoming social culinary and entertainment destination developed by Al Barakah International Investment (BII) in Abu Dhabi, has revealed plans to create the Bridge Wellness Hub, one of its seven destinations.
The Bridge is an integrated lifestyle wellness hub that has been carefully designed to be a disruptive space within its industry, BII said in a statement.
It added that the construction of the concept has commenced already and will open its doors for the first time in the fourth quarter of 2020 to coincide with the grand opening of Al Qana.
The Bridge concept comes from a combination of two ideas. One space that bridges all aspects of one’s life, work, play and personal and physical development. The second idea is the combination of science and art to deliver a superior design-driven intuitive experience.
With a total space area of over 8,000 sq m, The Bridge will feature seven service tracks (Move – Pause – Taste – Seek – Choose – Expand – Learn), combined into an ethereal and customised individual journey that are spread across three floors and a roof garden lounge.
Over 150 employees and experts will be brought into the project.
Fouad Mashal, CEO of Al Barakah International Investment said: “The Bridge is set to become the largest wellness offering in the Middle East. We joined forces to disrupt the market and introduce to Abu Dhabi an innovative concept that aims to improve the quality of life/wellbeing of residents by offering a new lifestyle journey.
“Abu Dhabi has already taken great strides in promoting the importance of physical activity. We are confident that The Bridge and the overall Al Qana project will play a key role in cementing Abu Dhabi’s position as one of the most liveable cities in the world and the ultimate destination for entertainment and wellbeing.”
Khalid Nahhas, founder of The Bridge added: “There’s a growing quest for wellness in our societies and this is becoming a worldwide phenomenon and a big shift towards better lives.
“Our partnership with Al Qana aims to bring to the capital a lifestyle destination that will deliver a customer experience that is no less than profound.”
