Two new hot tubs!

A Hot Springs-inspired experience

Two enormous new hot baths are now open in the Panorama section to expand your comfort and relaxation options. A first bath, a therapeutic Jacuzzi, pours into a second hot bath, which finishes its path in the Näkymä infinite pool. A technology imported from Germany was used for the therapeutic air bubble bath. In this bath, your body floats gently. Air bubbles have a soothing and comforting effect on the skin, tissue and nerves, activating your circulation and targeting your muscles and joints. The magic of air bubbles evaporates the stress and strain your tired body suffers, and strength, endurance and placidity return.

Water quality

Surpass all standards of excellence

The very essence of our success as the largest North American spa centre in a natural setting is water. At Nordik Spa-Nature, water quality must not just be excellent, it must surpass all standards of excellence.

We strive toward this goal every hour of every day, using a three-pronged approach:

1-Trained, experienced staff

The team that monitors our various pools is made up entirely of certified pool operators, who are in constant action throughout our daily operations. Few establishments hire such specifically qualified personnel for this job.

2-Cutting-edge equipment

Our powerful supply and pumping systems ensure that the water in our pools is completely filtered every 30 minutes. A computerized monitoring system analyzes water in real time, and automated control systems chlorinate and disinfect as needed. The process is further enhanced with new UV lamp technology to guarantee water quality throughout the spa.

3- Meticulously applied protocols

While our automated systems are highly reliable, our staff also checks computerized data by hand every three hours. If the slightest problem arises, we do not hesitate to close a pool until its parameters comply with the highest standards.
