ECLIPSE NORDIC HOT SPRINGS RESORT GUEST CENTRE (Healing Water)
Yukon Hot Springs Resort, Whitehorse, YT
Formerly Takhini Hot Springs Resort 2017 - 2021 (Under Construction)
"The art of HEALING
comes from nature,
not from the physician."
For millennia, people worldwide have used hot springs for their restorative, natural healing and mystical powers. Yukon's Takhini Hot Springs therapeutic value was long recognized by local First Nations. Over the last century, the warm waters have soothed many Yukoners. In recent years, the Yukon Hot Springs Resort (formerly Takhini Hot Springs Resort) has become a popular venue for international and local visitors alike, to bask in the hot pools, and view the awe-inspiring Northern Lights in winter or experience the magic of the Midnight Sun during the summer months.
Yukon Hot Springs Resort's new Eclipse Nordic Hot Springs Centre recognizes (in both design and services) that human health is interconnected with environmental health. It has been sited to rehabilitate the historical tufa run-off area. The new facility also takes advantage of views to the associated Takhini Pond, and local mountains. It has all-weather protected walkway connections to the outdoor hot pools — 10,000+ years old healing waters.
The Eclipse Nordic Hot Springs Centre's 15,000 sf programmed spaces include: reception, lounge, eatery, office, change rooms, showers, lockers and associated staff and utility services areas — all servicing the newly developed Onsen Natural Rock Hot Pools.
