  • Short journey 

Forget about being stuck in traffic for hours on end on the Route du Soleil or wandering through airports, waiting for connecting flights. You can get to Thermae Boetfort or Thermae Grimbergen in no time from anywhere in Belgium. Our centres’ perfect location makes them easily accessible. And, we offer free parking on site! So, your holiday really does begin instantly.

The sauna is one of the safest places to be. That’s because the coronavirus doesn’t like the heat. Also, we have put in place the strictest hygiene measures at our wellness centres, with everything being sanitised even more often than before. And, some of our facilities are exclusively accessible with your own social bubble. In addition, we have greatly reduced the number of guests at our centres at any one time and we are spreading out check-ins and check-outs as much as possible to minimise contact between guests.
