Our Story

The modern Therme concept was developed over 20 years ago and has since developed into a global tour de force.


Thermal Bathing - Renewal

Throughout the world, there are deep-rooted traditions of thermal bathing from Roman thermae and Turkish hammams to Japanese onsen and Finnish saunas. By combining traditions with evidenced-based wellbeing, cutting-edge technology, culture and nature, Therme Group reimagines thermal bathing, creating a unique environment tailored to personal and community wellbeing.

Historically, thermal baths created an opportunity for people to meet, socialise and share ideas. Therme resorts cultivate these traditions, creating an immersive experience where individuals can connect with themselves, others and the natural surroundings.
