As massive group of water parks is coming to the UK - and we've now got some fresh deets on the much anticipated Manchester location.

Finding its home near the Trafford Centre, the three story premises, from spa company Therme Group, is set to offer 25 pools and over 35 water slides and will be the size of 19 football pitches.

The Therme Group have offered up 30 saunas and steam rooms, water based exercise classes, yoga and pilates.

Plus, visitors will be able to enjoy luxury spas, swim-up bars, mineral pools, and a water lagoon - and that's just for the adults.

Family-friendly areas will include waterslides, indoor and outdoor pools as well as a wave pool. Plus, the resorts will feature exotic palm tree relaxation areas and a wellbeing garden thrown in for good measure.

The resort will also boast on-site restaurants, a whopping 10,000sqm rose-shaped botanical garden and even rooftop beehives which will provide honey for the restaurant food and for the spa treatments.

Manchester's 28-acre spa resort, which the developers plan to start building next year, will create 3,000 jobs in the city and will help to boost mental and physical wellbeing in the area. All other luxury resorts in the works are planned for UK cities, and anyone looking for a spa experience on a grand level can book in.

The Therme Group's latest offering, which opened in 2016 in Bucharest, welcomes 1.3 million visitors a year to its theme park.

Guests who book into the spas can experience thermal bathing traditions from across the world and wellbeing therapies in a biodiverse natural environment. Treatments are affordable and the resorts will offer fun activities for all ages - so it's inclusive too!

The group's UK Chief Operating Officer, James Mark, says: "We will be locating our resorts within large population centres.

"Now more than ever, people living in cities need opportunities to have relaxing and affordable wellbeing experiences close to home."

He adds: "Our concept, creating indoor biodiverse ecosystems that combine pure waters and natural environments, is already hugely popular in a number of European cities and it is a concept that will fundamentally improve the way we will live in the future."

After the Therme Group - a company driven by the belief that wellbeing should be accessible to all - was given the green light to build the new £250 million wellbeing resort in Manchester, there are also plans to build more of these spa theme parks across the country.

Major UK cities, including London, as well as in Scotland and Wales, will also benefit from the planned wellbeing resorts - and the pictures are anything to go by, they look incredible.
