Six Senses Spa, Sharq Village and Resort, Qatar

Six Senses SpaI spent another weekend in Doha, Qatar. Qatar is one of the richest country in Middle East and obviously, the rich and famous here are spoilt for choice when it comes to pampering themselves.The weather is super in Qatar at the moment. The day time is in the mid 20C and make walking and driving enjoyable. We drove around the city of Doha, visited an Old Shouq (marketplace) as well as check out some nice restaurants and hotels in Doha.

I came to know about Sharq Village & Spa from a Qatar guide book.  I read that the spa in that hotel resort is managed by the Six Senses Spa so I took the opportunity to check out this spa when we decided to have lunch at the Sharq Village.

Sharq Village & Spa is indeed a luxurious 5 stars hotel.  It is situated on Doha Bay which is only 5 minutes away from Doha International Airport. The hotel is well decorated in an Arabic Village style. The main building host the Reception, shops, meeting rooms, bar, lounge and a restaurant.

Within the Sharq Village & Spa houses the Six Senses Spa.  It is located on one side of the hotel.  The design of the Six Senses Spa is very different from a typical spa.  The beauty & uniqueness of this spa is that it is designed like you are walking along a quiet and peaceful Middle Eastern village with old wooden doors, mud-hardened floor and billowing Indian cotton curtains.

Six Senses Spa

The Six Senses Spa is of 6,500 sq.m with 23 treatment rooms. There are four separate spa villages each offering a variety of treatments.  As you enter the huge entrance (a traditional wooden door with drop down curtain), you will see 3 reception tables on your right.  Spa facilities like the gym, jacuzzi, sauna etc are on the 2nd level.

A gentleman approached and explained to me the Spa treatments & facilities. The Six Senses Spa offers all the traditional treatments such as Swedish, Thai, Balinese and Aroma massages. The spa has dedicated areas for yoga, meditation, tai chi and other wellness practices, as well as relaxation rooms and prayer rooms.

As Qatar is an Islamic country, ladies are also offered a private entrance and reception, a private gym and exercise area, as well as a full-service beauty salon offering hair, nail and henna tattoo treatments.

To be honest, I was very tempted to try out the spa. However, we were there for lunch and decided we’ll make a decision while having lunch. Well, lunch brought me back to my senses and I decided I had too full a lunch that I couldn’t possible have a massage for another 3-4 hours at least. (Buffet lunch at the Sharq Village was superb…with entire fish and even lobster served but that’s another story altogether)

I also decided that since I would be back in Singapore in a day or two, paying 2-3 times what I would normally pay in a good spa in Asia was a no-no for me.

However, if you are ever in Qatar and have the time and money to spare, you must certainly check out the Six Senses Spa in Sharq Village. Or at least check out the superb buffet lunch at their restaurant…

Natural Alternate Cancer Cure*

We look after our body by working out at the gyms and relaxing in spas.

However, time and tide waits for no man or woman. We do get sick. And the biggest killer in most developed countries today is cancer. All of us will surely know at least one friend or relative who have succumb to cancer; some, unfortunately at a very young age.

Despite great advances made in modern medicine, cancer still remains as one of the modern killer that still has medical science stumped. We are no nearer towards a medical cure for cancer than we were 40 years ago.

Where modern medicine fail to cure, in step alternative treatments. Many such treatments are just old wives’ tales. Some are plain quarks. Some are just unproven hypothesis.

But stories of successful alternative treatments has always persisted. Patients whom the doctor has diagnosed as being terminal often turned to alternative treatments and has doctors stumped when they realise some-one they diagnosed as being cancer-terminal later walks away cleared of the illness.

These alternative treatment ranges from Qi-gong to herbal remedies to alternate diets. What are the more believable treatments? Has there been more ‘scientific’ research?  What are the cure statistics? How do we differentiate from the more believable alternative treatments to the hocus-pocus treatments? Who have actually survived using alternative cancer treatment methods?

A research team shows there are over 350 existing natural and alternative cancer treatments which have shown to stop or slow down cancer. People have used these gentle and non-toxic treatments instead of or alongside conventional treatment, or after conventional treatment has failed.

The research compilation shows testimonials of thousands of patients who have followed these alternative treatments together or separately with modern medicine and had their cancer slowed down or cured.  This include patients suffering from bone cancer, breast cancer, Hodgkin’s disease, Ovarian cancer, malignant melanoma, lung cancer, liver cancer and prostate cancer.

If you have always been interested in alternate cancer cures but do not know where or how to differentiate the better alternate treatments, these series of well-researched e-books compilation will be a good place to start your research.
