LemayMichaud design one of world's biggest day spas for Groupe Nordik

Thermal spa operator Groupe Nordik will open one of the biggest day spas in the world in Whitby, Canada, once construction is completed in December 2020.

Located in Cullen Central Park, the CA$50m (US$37.7m, €34.4m, £29.4m) Nordik Spa-Nature Whitby development covers just under 9ac (4ha) and was designed by LemayMichaud, working with Groupe Nordik’s own internal projects and design team.

The spa is billed as an "avant-garde, innovative and multisensory rejuvenation experience" and will accommodate up to 1,100 visitors a day.

There will be five outdoor pools, 25 treatment rooms and a 120-seat sauna, along with indoor and outdoor relaxation areas.

Highlights will include a 1,200cu ft (34cu m) Källa saltwater flotation pool that will be big enough for 40 people, carved out of a rock and filled with 12 tonnes (13 tons) of Epsom salts.

“Nordik Spa-Nature started small and grew organically and if we were to redo it, we would build it differently and that’s what the Whitby spa is,” said Alexandre Cantin, Groupe Nordik’s corporate development director.

“We’re addressing all the little details and operational inefficiencies and it’s designed to be phased out. For example, water is our main component and instead of having three or four mechanical rooms with multiple staff to handle this, we’ll be able to have one big plant which will support the site as it expands and the pipes will already be in place for when we add new pools.”
