Triangle Created with Sketch. SCROLL TO CONTINUE

Therme Group UK is responsible for the strategic planning, development and roll out of Therme Group resorts in the UK.

In line with the group philosophy that wellbeing should be accessible for all, its vision is to bring the Therme Group proposition to within 2 hours travel time of 90% of the British population.

Every Therme Group resort in the UK will be individually designed within a local context, whilst capturing the origins of global bathing traditions. There will be natural environments, with thousands of plants, created by world-leading architects, artists and engineers, to achieve the highest levels of experience, quality and sustainability.

Our first UK project is Therme Manchester, which is scheduled to open in 2023. It is an iconic development that will combine hundreds of water-based activities with wellbeing treatments, art, nature and technology, to create a unique experience never before seen in the UK. It is forecast to attract over two million visitors per year, within five years, making it the most visited all-season water-based attraction in the world.
