Flo Alpine Spa - A World-Class Scandinavian Medical Spa

by Serge Ouimette in Canmore

Business Plan


Flö Alpine Spa 

Rediscover your flow!


The Scandinavian Medical Spa - An Ecologically Sustainable Spa with outdoor pool and sauna experience with add on therapeutic massages and natural esthetics, café & fine dining, educational seminars, destination health and wellness programs, and medical sanctuary built into 6 acres of pristine mountain wilderness in the beautiful town of Canmore, Alberta. 

Executive Summary

Flö Alpine Spa is a world-class facility that provides the international community with superior quality care to guests in a relaxing, comfortable and welcoming environment. The objective is to provide people with the opportunity to escape from their harried lives and to come back to reality. Guests of Flö Alpine Spa will feel pampered from the moment of their arrival at the spa and will leave feeling transformed.


Project Objectives and Sources of Funds 

Flö Alpine Spa aims to become a world-class spa, designed, built & operated in the Bow Valley, and to provide a unique and diversified experience that appeals to a wide sector of the growing adult wellness-seeking market.

Current Status of the Project

Flö Alpine Spa has been in planning for more than 6 years. An unconditional Agreement of Purchase and Sale (summarized below) is in negotiation between the subdivision developer, Three Sisters Mountain Village Properties Ltd., and Flö Development Corporation (`FDC`). FDC has invested around $50,000 to date in soft costs relating to the Flö Alpine Spa project. These costs include master planning, architecture, marketing, engineering and logistics.

We want to use crowdfunding to cover costs for the master planning (part 2) and design. The money will allow us to gather our team of professionals for a 3-day retreat here in Canmore, more specifically to garner and fine-tune all details for the project.

Competitive Edge – The Market Opportunity

As the first spa of its kind in the region, in the province, and in Western Canada, Flö Alpine Spa has the advantage of being the first to establish itself and to capture a unique combination of Scandinavian spa, Boutique Spa, Educational Centre and Medical Sanctuary. 

The model is client-centred and customer service is of paramount importance at Flö Alpine Spa. Each client will be made to feel welcome as though they are coming into a comfortable home environment. Pre-screening will enable our hosts to provide a Boutique Spa experience that meets the individual needs of every guest, and separates us from the competition.

Currently, there are no spas that combine the Scandinavian and Medical Spa concepts in the Western part of Canada. The Flö Alpine Spa concept is a first of its kind in Canada and proves to be an effective means of employment with the Medical Sanctuary and Educational Programs. A “Boutique Scandinavian Medical Spa” experience is key to this project, as we are building Flö Alpine Spa into the No. 1 based personal growth company in the world specializing in mental and physical well-being.

People will love our evidence-based research, products and services, and build towards having raving fans and companies who recommend us to their friends, employees, clients and associates.

The Vision

The vision of Flö Alpine Spa is to work with a global, long-term and broad-based outlook supported by strong goal-oriented, time and budget-sensitive business practices. The result: creating a beautiful spa facility set into the natural surroundings while respecting the beauty Mother Nature provides.

Our motto: Work at play is an unparalleled commitment to loving what we do every day, the development of an uncommon and extraordinary four-season spa that respects nature and provides a memorable, unique and exceptional experience in one of the most beautiful places on earth for people to escape the hectic pace of daily life and reconnect with what is truly important – self, family, friends and nature – to awaken and revitalize.


As defined by Flö Alpine Spa management, the vision is to plan and construct the physical facilities into leading edge ecologically sustainable pools, spas and buildings, including an off-grid building to host the reception area, guest lounges, offices and for gathering/meeting spaces.

There are six (6) main areas of income and physical services offered: 

  1. Spa – Pools/Saunas & Relaxation Areas;

  2. Massage Services & Treatments;

  3. Retail / Store; 

  4. The Wellness Café & Restaurants (Fine Dining);

  5. The Educational Program Centre;

  6. The Medical / Healing Sanctuary – to be considered in Phase III of the project.

    Concluding Statement

    The vision for Flö Alpine Spa is to evolve into an international eco-retreat centre providing guests with a unique and inspiring experience in finding balance and wellness.  Becoming a model for environmental leadership is definitely achievable.  In order to become a financially self-sustaining business venture and move Flö Alpine Spa into a highly successful operating position in the market will require sufficient time and an orderly and incremental process.


  The theme for Flö is a transformative experience that awakens and invigorates our guests.
