Elveden Forest multi-millon pound transformation

Aqua Sana Elveden Forest has unveiled its brand-new £6.5 million Forest Spa, bringing together 25 spa experiences, to harness the proven benefits of forest bathing.

The spa, which has undergone the biggest refurbishment in Aqua Sana’s history, has completely transformed into a multi-sensory forest escape - inspired by the world’s most extraordinary natural environments, from volcanos and hot springs to forest glades and mineral caves.

Aqua Sana Elveden Forest boasts a huge range of steam rooms and saunas, a heated outdoor pool, an ice cave and a selection of relaxation rooms. The spa has also introduced three new experiences, which are exclusive to Aqua Sana Elveden Forest – The Nest, Sole Therapy and Forest View.

The Nest is a unique sauna experience, which reflects the forest canopy and the feeling of being in a nest. Surrounded by natural cedar wood, you can recline on a body contoured lounger as you look out above the treetops at the natural woodland.

Inspired by Ashiyu Japanese foot baths, Sole Therapy includes free-flowing water to stimulate reflex zones on the bottom of your feet, which calms your body and prepares your mind for relaxation. Surrounded by natural daylight and natural forest sounds, it’s the perfect way to begin your spa journey. Forest View is an immersive spa experience, offering guests a unique journey for meditation as they observe a scene slowly transitioning through all four seasons of the year, while surrounded by aromatic scents of the woodlands.

The spa is split across five ‘zones’ – Nordic Forest, Hot Springs, Volcanic Forest, Forest Immersion and Treetop Nesting – each designed to improve your mental and physical wellbeing, taking inspiration from the sights, sounds and scents of the natural world.

In addition to the transformation of the spa, Vitalé Café Bar has received a £1.2m investment to give it a complete redesign, bringing the outside in with decorative foliage large windows that allow in natural daylight while overlooking the woodland setting.

Stuart Angus, Director of Spa, said: “Having joined Center Parcs earlier this year, it’s been a privilege to be involved in such an amazing project, with the level of investment and quality of the offering throughout really demonstrating how important and integral Aqua Sana Spa is to Center Parcs.

The spa now boasts 25 natural experiences and a new Vitale Café Bar, complementing our treatment and retail offering, and providing both Center Parcs guests and external guests with the opportunity to experience something really special during their short break or spa day.

“We see this as the next evolution of our Forest Spa concept and part of our ongoing commitment to continually develop and ensure we’re providing the best experiences for our guests.”

Aqua Sana Elveden Forest offers a range of spa days and packages (from £119pp) and spa breaks (from £345pp)
