THE WHAT? Therme Group has unveiled plans to develop its wellbeing resort concept in several cities across the UK. The roll out from its initial Manchester-based hub will create more than 3,000 jobs.
THE DETAILS The plan includes projects with a similar concept to Therme Manchester in Wales, Scotland and London. All sites will be located near to city centres.
Guests will be able to experience thermal bathing traditions, fun and healthy activities and affordable wellbeing therapies in a biodiverse natural environment, Therme says and entry prices will be accessible, supporting preventative healthcare in communities.
THE WHY? With COVID-19 accelerating the popularity of preventative health, not to mention staycations, Therme is well placed to profit. UK Chief Operating Officer, James Mark, explains, “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 percent of the UK population.”
“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.”
