Therme Group, specialists in developing advanced wellbeing resorts, has announced plans to build wellbeing resorts across the UK.

The announcement comes in the wake of a £250 million wellbeing resort in Manchester being approved. As well as Manchester, Therme Group’s development plan includes creating similar resorts in Wales, Scotland, and London. All wellness centres will be built at locations not far from city centres.

Visitors will be able to experience different thermal bathing traditions from around the world, in sites that combine nature, sustainable technology and culture. The destinations will be accessible to all, providing fun and healthy activities for all ages.

Therme Group is committed to making wellness centres affordable and socially inclusive, so that wider members of communities can benefit from the health and mental wellbeing of preventative healthcare.

James Mark, Therme Group UK’s chief operating officer, said: “Our resorts provide a vital piece of social infrastructure in our cities, creating relaxing and fun places to meet whilst also nurturing mental and physical health. Our aim is to ensure that a Therme Group wellbeing resort is within easy reach of 90% of the UK population.

“We will be locating our resorts within large population centres. Now more than ever, people living in cities need opportunities to have relaxing and affordable wellbeing experiences close to home. Our concept, creating indoor biodiverse ecosystems that combine pure waters and natural environments, is already hugely popular in a number of European cities and it is a concept that will fundamentally improve the way we will live in the future,” Mark continued.
