UK’s Center Parcs Elveden Forest Reopens

The Aqua Sana Spa at Elveden Forest in Suffolk has reopened this month after a fire, which caused extensive damage estimated at 40 million pounds, forced its closure in April 2002. Set in 400 acres of rural Breckland forest, the 2,400 sq-m Aqua Sana spa at Elveden houses 14 multi-sensory spa experiences and can accommodate 200 spa-goers.

Designed by Jackson Design Associates and constructed by Bluestone Plc, the spa has been created with Balinese influences and features an impressive heated, outdoor hydrotherapy pool as its focal point, supplied by Cheshire Spas & Pools. All other specialist spa equipment was supplied by Thermarium.
The spa journey at Aqua Sana begins with a choice of light treatments, such as the Reflexology Footbath or the Greek Herbal Bath, before progressing on to the more intense therapies of Japanese Salt Steam Bath and the Ice Fountain. The experience then concludes with relaxation time taken in the Aqua Meditation Room or the Japanese Zen Garden. Aqua Sana Spa in Elveden Forest also incorporates 17 therapy rooms presenting treatments from Elemis and Decleor, plus a hair and nail studio with the Aveda collection.
Other new facilities at the village include: Indonesian-style Subtropical Swimming Paradise; toddlers and children’s pool with interactive water play; Sports Plaza with Sports Café; indoor action activities and Bouldering wall for climbing; Artworx Room; Cyber Zone and a Movie Capsule.

Funded by Center Parcs UK, the project is reported to have cost 3.1 million pounds.
Gavin Yuill, Project Manager, says, “We`re doing much more than rebuilding. We want to make it all even better than before for our guests - a truly remarkable holiday experience.”
Don Camilleri, Director of Development and Engineering, concludes, “I`m absolutely delighted with the swift progress that has been made. I`d like to pay tribute to the professionalism and determination of everyone involved.”
