We take a look at the Therme Resort planned for TraffordCity
Exciting things are ahead for TraffordCity and one of the most exciting is the plan create a £200 million wellbeing resort on the current site of EventCity.
What exactly is a Therme Wellbeing Resort? We take a look at what Therme are all about and what's in the plans for TraffordCity...
Therme has built a reputation over the last 20 years for delivering, high quality and sustainable world class health and well-being resorts across Europe and, subject to planning approval, the Therme Manchester wellbeing resort at TraffordCity will be the first in the UK bringing together the tradition of the ancient Roman spa with a unique indoor tropical paradise using natural forms and structures in its design to create a unique architectural concept. It will be a landmark development for the city and is set to become an iconic symbol of the north-west of England.
Affordable and accessible for all
Despite the aspirational and luxurious feel of a Therme resort, what makes their concept and philosophy so compelling is that its offering is affordable and accessible for all. As well as the obvious leisure element, providing a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of the community is central to Therme’s beliefs.
Unwind in a tropical environment
Therme Manchester at TraffordCity will be an immersive experience to enhance the mind, body and soul. Visitors will have the chance to unwind in a perfect tropical environment with turquoise, warm-water lagoons among spectacular botanical gardens.
Nature and water are at the heart of the experience, with exquisite design throughout. Guests will be able to enjoy everything from affordable luxury-class spa therapies, multi-sensorial saunas and therapeutic mineral pools to exciting wave pools, waterslides and many fun and healthy activities.
A bio-diverse garden for all seasons
At the heart of Therme Manchester at TraffordCity is a bio-diverse garden for all seasons, designed in the form of a rose with petal-shaped terraces and beautiful pools. This central aspect of the design acts as a focal point for socialising, learning and discovery and creates a link between the four areas.
Art and its role in spiritual wellbeing is central to Therme Manchester at TraffordCity. Collaboration with world-class artists, based on the Therme Art programme, and an extensive programme of permanent and temporary installations will promote discovery and wonder, contemplation, playfulness, and engagement with others.
Therme Manchester is scheduled to open late 2022, bringing the opportunity for an affordable holiday every day to the communities it serves.
