Thermal project set to ‘redefine city wellbeing’ on track for 2023 opening

Global wellbeing organisation, Therme Group, has confirmed its 28-acre wellbeing project in the UK is on track to begin construction.

Set to open in 2023, the £250m (US$308.6m, €274.4m) waterpark and spa project will combine hundreds of water-based activities with wellbeing treatments, art, nature and technology to create a unique destination.

Therme Manchester will feature a dedicated adults’ area with warm-water lagoons hidden among botanical gardens, therapeutic mineral pools, swim-up bars and a plethora of steam rooms and saunas.

Daily programming will include water-based fitness classes while ample gardens will provide green space for yoga, Pilates and other activities.

The destination is being designed to accommodate all ages and will include a large family area with water slides, a wave pool, indoor and outdoor pools, steamrooms, exotic palm trees and relaxation areas and dozens of other fun, relaxing and healthy activities.

Richard Land, chief development officer of Therme Group UK commented: “Therme Manchester will redefine city wellbeing, enhancing mental and physical health through water- and nature-based experiences.

“Therme Group is based on a belief that wellbeing should be accessible for all – the events of 2020 have shone a light on the necessity of this mission, especially for those in cities.”

The technology-driven group claims to meet the highest hygiene and safety standards, with all Therme Group resorts using state-of-the-art plant-based filtration to purify the environment, so guests are always breathing fresh air and swimming in clean ozone-treated water.

Therme Manchester is the latest development in Therme Group’s global development programme, to create the most advanced wellbeing resorts in cities around the world.

It is the first of a number of new generation projects in development by Therme Group, including other UK locations, mainland Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific.
