Nordik Group to open new wellness centre in Ontario
POSTED 09 Oct 2018 . BY Andrew Manns
Quebec-based company Nordik Group is currently overseeing the construction of a new spa and wellness resort in Whitby, Ontario.

The US$20m (€17.4m, £15.3m) complex, which was designed by architectural firm LEMAYMICHAUD, is being built on a 385,423 sq ft plot of land in Whitby’s Cullen Park.

Taking inspiration from what Nordik has called the 2000-year-old "heat therapy and relaxation techniques from Scandinavian countries", the new Spa-Nature facility will feature five saunas, five pools, three restaurants, and multiple massage and resting areas.

Guests will also be able to partake in the therapeutic benefits of the on-site saltwater Källa pool. Redolent of Israel’s hypersaline Dead Sea, the Källa will provide experiences of weightlessness.

Overall, the resort, which will expedite customer services with a self-help virtual reception technology, will be able to accommodate up to 1,100 people per day.

Antoine Lagarec, Nordik Spa-Nature’s project and design manager said: "The guiding principles of this project’s design are the flow between areas, optimal space management, and respect for the environment. Our acquired experience in the spa industry has brought us to the next level."

Nordik Group plans to open doors on the new resort in Fall 2019.
