Ontarians hoping to visit the massive Nordic Spa being built in Whitby will have to wait a bit longer for a soothing soak.

Previously slated to welcome guests this fall, the opening of the Nordik Spa-Nature has been pushed back until spring 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic.

“We had to close the construction site for a month last spring, and we sometimes have a hard time getting materials,” said Marianne Trotier, Public and Press Director for Nordik Group, the company behind the project. “It’s going pretty smoothly now, and our teams are working full time to prepare an opening for next spring.”

When it eventually opens, the 385,423 sq-ft Nordic-style spa will focus on heat therapy and relaxation techniques from Scandinavian countries, according to its website.

Located 45 kilometers from Toronto, the spa claims to offer a, “multisensory experience in a natural setting that will contribute to the health and well-being of its guests.”

The facility says it will feature a range of service allowing guests to experience the thermal cycle at any time of year including waterfalls, dry and steam saunas, hot, cold, and temperate outdoor pools.

A saltwater floating pool will allow visitors to experience the sensation of weightlessness, and a range of massages, body treatments, and wellness rituals will allow for further relaxation.

Originally announced in 2017, the Nordik Spa-Nature was expected to open in spring 2019, although the date has been pushed several times.
