Following approval for a £250 million (€274 million) wellbeing resort in Manchester, Therme Group has revealed plans to develop the concept elsewhere in the UK, including several locations in London, Wales and Scotland.
The roll-out of the resorts will create more than 3,000 new jobs across projects with a similar concept to the 28-acre Therme Manchester, where construction work will begin in 2021. The sites will combine nature, sustainable technology and culture, offering a fun and relaxing experience that also focuses on boosting mental and physical health.
Guests will be able to experience thermal bathing traditions from around the world as well as affordable wellbeing therapies. The scale of each resort means entry prices can be set at a level that is socially inclusive.
Therme Group will work with central and local government bodies, investors and stakeholders to deliver its UK development plan. There are also developments in the pipeline for Asia, Europe and North America.
The Group’s latest resort opened in 2016 in Bucharest and welcomes 1.3 million visitors each year.
The company’s UK chief operating officer, James Mark, said: “Our aim is to ensure that a Therme Group wellbeing resort is within easy reach of 90% of the UK population.”
