Our story


Hospitality and sharing happiness are in our DNA.


In October 2005, after more than a year and a half and an investment of over 5 million dollars, BALNEA Spa and Thermal Reserve was officially inaugurated.

From the moment it opened its doors, BALNEA has become a reference for day spas in Quebec.

BALNEA redefines the art of relaxation and innovates through its contemporary design, with its client service planning as well as with its “all inclusive” experience within a lean and refined ambiance for all the senses to enjoy and offered with authenticity and gratitude.

“Ever since those first days, we have been pursuing our dream of offering our clients a timeless, voluptuous, gourmet health resort experience. For us, BALNEA is an ode to nature, an adventurous and captivating sanctuary, a ritual constantly reinventing itself, a well needed luxury, that must inspire, rejuvenate and awaken”.


In 2022, BALNEA announces the launch of a two-phase eco-friendly expansion project that will eventually total nearly $30 million in investment, from 2022 to 2027. The project will contribute to expand and improve the existing spa facilities and create new buildings, providing an innovative and complete tourism offer for guests eager for nature getaways and slow tourism.

Phase 1: With a $5 million funding from the “Programme d’aide à la relance de l’industrie touristique” (PARIT) of the ministère du Tourisme, the first phase of the project is launched. Scheduled from 2022 to 2024 and totaling an investment of $10M, the first phase of the project will focus on transforming the spa into a multi-purpose complex with accommodations including:

• The addition of a 70-foot-wide hot tub, an underground theme lounge, heated terrace, additional changing rooms, new wastewater treatment facilities and biomass heating;

• An upgrade to a 3-star rating or equivalent of the Beatnik Hotel;

• The start of a 4-season “intensive organic microfarm” and 1 winter greenhouse to provide the LUMAMI restaurant (as well as a second restaurant that will open on site) throughout the year. This micro-farm will be accessible to agritourists and will allow them to taste the fresh products prepared by our chefs and enjoy the peace of the place.

“It is an honor and a source of pride for BALNEA to receive this financial aid which will support our transformation project. This project is a commitment to return to the earth, an invitation to slow down, become aware, appreciate and consume in a healthy and responsible way. Guests will be able to benefit from direct contact with regenerative agriculture in addition to living a holistic experience of change of scenery and well-being, for their benefit and that of the producers of the Brome-Missisquoi region.”
– Denis Laframboise, President of BALNEA.
