Visiting a spa is one of the most tranquil and luxurious experiences for self-care and pampering. Qatar’s spas redefine luxury and indulgence, with unique experiences in novel settings.

One of the most magnificent spas in Qatar is The Spa at Park Hyatt Doha, offering rejuvenating massages, facials, scrubs and other body treatments. At The Spa, each individual is unique. Treatments are created designed to address your time and lifestyle preferences.

The Spa does not do it alone. Since its creation, VALMONT has dedicated its savoir-faire to the field of anti-aging, offering professional treatments that combine expertise, high-performance products and precise gestures. Featuring unique and exclusive care protocols, VALMONT treatments stand out from all others thanks to the ‘butterfly motion’ that sets the tone for each programme. All Magicien du Temps treatments benefit from this exclusive and original gesture. The client leaves both relaxed and invigorated, the skin well rested and reawakened.

Naomi Galli-Merle, the General Manager of Valmont Middle East

‘As you know VALMONT is a Swiss luxury skincare brand that belongs to a family group run by both Didier Guillon (president, owner, artist ) and Sophie Vann Guillon (CEO). Both are very involved within the Group, which allows us to have a very strong identity with unique brand DNA. Our distribution remains very niche by choice and art is at the heart of everything that we do. We believe in strong emotions, and this makes us different,’ said Naomi Galli-Merle, the General Manager of Valmont Middle East. ‘In fact, we don’t only sell skincare and fragrances. We simply offer exclusive opportunities. We have our own palace in Venice in which Didier Guillon exposes every year his own exhibitions that he created with different artists he collaborates with,’ Naomi Galli-Merle, the General Manager of Valmont Middle East said.

The majesty of Essence of Bees products

By VALMONT, l’Elixir des Glaciers honoured the majesty of honeybees in Switzerland and throughout the world by creating Essence of Bees, a skincare collection inspired by the extraordinary benefits offered by the ingredients of the hive. The skin deserves the best, every day. That’s why in 2023, Essence of Bees, a skincare collection inspired by the extraordinary benefits offered by the ingredients of the hive, is becoming an exceptional daily routine for dry skin. Huile Majestueuse, Crème de Masque Majestueuse and Sérum Majestueux Vos Yeux offer high-performance nutrition in exquisitely light textures, now with an even more modern and generous spirit.

‘Our creams allow an immediate effect on the skin. It is instant… in fact, our background is in aesthetic medicine, Valmont was born in a clinic in Switzerland and the DNA was already the leading active ingredient for post-operative treatments. We want to be different and the leading brand by the concentration of our active ingredients, the transparency of our formulas and the exceptional origin of each active ingredients are 100% Swiss for the most part. Noting that we have sophisticated extraction methods to use the purest plant extracts and we use very sophisticated processes that allow us to make creams with exceptional textures,’ said Naomi.

This collection reflects a strengthened commitment to protecting bees, a central aspect of VALMONT’s sustainable development policy. It will serve to support long-term projects aiming to preserve biodiversity. The Essence of Bees complex blends honey, propolis and royal jelly for the very first time in an oil. It all started with a meeting between VALMONT and Swiss beekeepers, passionate professionals intent on preserving their precious, experience-based expertise.

I strongly believe that the solid partnership can only work thanks to an authentic and close ‘human’ relationship between both brands. We are very proud and fortunate to work very closely with PHD’s teams,’ said Naomi.
