What makes the Aqua Sana Spa special?
We're glad you asked. The first of its kind in Europe, Aqua Sana at Center Parcs Woburn Forest is what we're calling a mega spa.
Over 10 years of planning, two years of construction and 7,200sq metres of spa space, has resulted in 25 experience rooms spread across 6 nature inspired spa themes; Fire & Ice, Blossom, Herbal, Sensory, Salt plus Mineral & Gemstone.
What's the spa like?
It's quite like nothing else. Based on ancient spas that were both a social and healing space, the experience rooms offer everything from lava inspired saunas, ice rooms (filled with actual crushed ice) and rain walk showers, to floral infused steam rooms, herbal baths and an outdoor infinity pool.
From your route around the six sections to carefully placed drinking fountains, relaxation areas and the fluffiest of robes, everything has been considered, thought through and very well executed.
What are the treatments like?
Elemis, Decléor, Lava Shells, Mii, Kissed by Mii , CND Shellac and Vinylux are all used at the spa, while treatments range from time saving 25 minute facials to 1hr 55mins full body treatments and massage. We tried the Elemis Exotic Lime & Ginger Salt Glow, emerging with skin softer than ever.
What else is there to do at Aqua Sana?
The spa has its own Vitalé Café Bar for light lunches, platters, juice, bubbly or a no-regrets slice of cake, plus a Zen Garden for chilling out. There's also the rest of Center Parcs Woburn Forest to be enjoyed - it's easy to forget there's life beyond the World of Spa. Bikes, walks, water slides and white rapids, restaurants - there's plenty to keep everyone busy.
