Therme group announces plans to expand wellbeing resorts in UK
The Therme Group has revealed plans to develop its wellbeing resort concept in other major UK cities, including London and key locations in Wales and Scotland.
Following approval to build the £250 million wellbeing resort in Manchester, the Therme group has announced that it will be developing more resorts across the UK, including Wales and Scotland, where all of the projects will be developed at sites located near to city centres.
“We will be locating our resorts within large population centres” says UK chief operating officer, James Mark. “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.”
The group plans to work with central and local government bodies, investors and stakeholders to deliver the UK development plan, with the goal of improving health, wellbeing and quality of life for the general public, in a way that is affordable and accessible to all. The expansion will also create over 3,000 new jobs.
With the first UK city-based resort in Manchester starting construction next year, the company is engaging with private and public sector partners in the UK. There are also plans in development for Asia, Europe and North America.
“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,” says Mark. “Our aim is to ensure that a Therme Group wellbeing resort is within easy reach of 90% of the UK population.”
