Aqua Sana, at the Sherwood Forest complex, has started work on a new Forest Spa concept - including a sauna in the sky.

Center Parcs plans to reinvent Aqua Sana’s World of Spa concept as Forest Spa - a new collection of spa experiences inspired by nature.

The project is an investment of approximately £3m and is due to be completed early 2017.

After many years of welcoming spa day guests and spa break guests to their World of Spa concept, which brings experiences inspired by spas from Turkey to Japan, Aqua Sana is now building on its success by bringing the essence of nature into the thermal and cooling experiences. This unique project features more than 10 experience rooms, relaxation areas and a treetop sauna.

Sue Goddard, Group Leisure Manager at Center Parcs said: “Aqua Sana has been such a huge success over the years and we like to continue evolving so we continue to offer high quality, inspiring experiences. The natural setting has always been a very special aspect for Aqua Sana and we feel now is the time to really celebrate this element by bringing it into the experiences at our Sherwood Forest spa.”

Aqua Sana Spas can be found at all five of Center Parcs’ UK Villages, nestled in 400 acres of natural forest. Aqua Sana Spa offers spa days, spa breaks and is also available for spa sessions as part of Center Parcs breaks. For more information, please visit:
