First announced in 2016, the sprawling Förena development, a recently-opened thermal spa near Montreal, is a wonderland of relaxation for customers featuring an impressive facility. 

Extending over more than 600,000 square feet, this massive spa offers an amazing landscape that makes a stay there a truly immersive experience.

According to Narcity Québec, this spa was a $12 million investment for the first phase alone and is one of the largest spa facilities in the country.

The second phase of its development involved the construction of a hotel, a restaurant, and other pavilions to enjoy.

After years of hard work and a lot of money, Förena opened its doors in December of 2019 and I am so looking forward to spending some time there.

The spa development is divided into two different thermotherapy areas.

There are also both indoor and outdoor pools as well as spaces for beauty treatments and massage therapy. 

Förena is situated at the foot of Mont Saint-Bruno National Park, which is only about 30 minutes away from downtown Montreal.

This space was created to give customers a place to let go of their day-to-day stresses and enter a world designed to facilitate relaxation.

On its website, the spa promises a full sensory experience — "a world where time is frozen, like the ice of these immense frozen mountains," where "you hear her creaks [...] of wood under fire during a dark evening."
