“Nordic spa’s add incredible value to wellness within the communities they are built-in, and it will create a unique destination for the city,” Scandvik Hotels president Travis Batting said in a press release on Tuesday.

“We believe the Nordic spa, which will be the first of its kind in the province will help support the tourism industry, the city’s WinterYXE strategy, and providing valuable jobs and economic spinoff to both the city local businesses.”
