OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

DURING CHRISMAS 2021 PROMOTION, I RECEIVED A PROMOTIONAL CERTIFICATE FOR A THERMAL EXPERIENCE ACCESS. IS IT STILL VALID ?

Not valid on Saturdays, September, Thanksgiving week-end (October 8-9-10), November 11 and Holiday period. Please note that no reservation is required.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING FOR MY FIRST VISIT ?

You will want to bring your bathing suit, sandals, a bottle of water and a bag to store wet items.

Upon arrival at the reception desk, our wellness agents will provide you with a bathrobe and towel and will assign you a locker with a digital lock for the day.

In order to enhance your stay, we invite you to bring a good magazine or book, sunscreen, sports clothing, sunglasses, and any other item that will enrich your experience. Remember to bring a bag to store your wet items—to reduce our ecological footprint and to comply with the City of Bromont’s bylaw (banning not only conventional plastic bags, but also biodegradable and compostable bags), we no longer distribute single-use bags.
