Treetop sauna to star at Center Parcs’ new forest-themed spa concept at Sherwood Forest
POSTED 23 Jun 2016 . BY Jane Kitchen
The brand will now bring the essence of nature into the thermal and cooling experiences at Sherwood Forest, with more than ten experience rooms, relaxation areas and a treetop sauna
Center Parcs has revealed plans to reinvent its Sherwood Forest location's Aqua Sana’s ‘World of Spa’ concept as ‘Forest Spa,’ a new collection of spa experiences inspired by nature.

The company is spending approximately £3m on the project, which is due to be completed in early 2017. Work is now underway on the project, and the spa will remain partially open for day spa guests and short breaks guests while the changes are implemented.

The new spa concept marks a significant move forward for its Aqua Sana Spa brand, which emerged from a modest spa offering 14 years ago and brings experiences inspired by spas from Turkey to Japan.

The brand will now bring the essence of nature into the thermal and cooling experiences at Sherwood Forest, with more than ten experience rooms, relaxation areas and a treetop sauna.

“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,” said Sue Goddard, group leisure manager at Center Parcs. “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.”
