Therme Group has announced that it is working with Incheon Metropolitan City Mayor Yoo Jeong-bok and IFEZ Commissioner Kim Jin-yong to bring a wellbeing resort to South Korea, that can welcome upwards of one million people per year.
A letter of cooperation between Therme and IFEZ (Incheon Free Economic Zone) was signed in Frankfurt in November. Subject to a finalized agreement and a construction-ready site, the resort will take two to three years to complete. Therme Group now adds Incheon to its ongoing global development programme.
Korean traditions of saunas, hot pools, wellness experiences and health-giving food align closely with the Therme concept and the resort will reflect this unique history and culture.

The resort in Korea will offer a natural environment delivered through sustainable engineering. Therme resorts are LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited to the highest ‘Platinum’ level. Earlier this month, Therme Group was awarded a double gold for ‘Conserving Water and Improving Water Security and Supply for Neighbours’ at the World Travel Market (WTM) Global Responsible Tourism Awards.
IFEZ Commissioner Kim Jin-yong says “Therme Group’s Wellbeing Resort will not only attract tourists to Incheon and help to drive the region’s economy, but it will also boost health and wellbeing in the population as Incheon continues to grow as a leading global city.”
Therme Group Senior Vice President and COO, Stelian Iacob added “Our close partnership with Incheon and IFEZ will enable us to continue our global development programme, bringing the world’s most advanced wellbeing concept to iconic locations in cities worldwide.”
