What an experience!
"Aqua Sana has five spa zones and 24 different nature-inspired spa experiences, from the atmospheric Forest Cavern to the calming Moonlight Steam Room."
I booked an over night stay at the Longleat Spa for £465. You can access the spa from 9am - 9pm on both your first and second day. So you can really experience all aspects of the spa, and there is a lot to explore. This doesn't include treatments so i had to book them on top.
From steam baths to shower walks, herbal inhalation rooms to hot springs, take a refreshing dip in the outdoor pool or drift off in one of our specially designed relaxation or meditation areas. There is so much to pick from.
Obviously driving into centre parcs is always busy, but thats to be expected for such a large and busy complex. We stayed in an apartment which was a 20 min walk from the spa facility itself. It would have been nice if it was a little closer or accommodation was on the same site as the spa. You are using the centre parcs apartments.
The apartment was average, could use a little update. However, it was clean and spacious enough for 2 people. You have a little balcony that overlooks the forest.
As soon as you enter the spa, staff are super friendly and talk you through every aspect. It looked impressive from the outside and has a long path which is lit up at night.
The spa site is pretty big and split over 2 floors. It is quite busy but with so many rooms to pick from, there is always something to try. The in door is beautiful and has a little jacuzzi area. There were 2 external hot tubs, these do get very busy especially at night. As we stayed over we got to experience the spa in the day and in the evening. i highly recommend trying to visit or use in the evening, quiet and so pretty with all the lights on, feels very 'twighlty'.
The pool is in the centre and as you walk round, there are 22 rooms spread out to experience, from the volcanic sauna, the ice room, places to sleep or rest and a forest cave.
I LOVED THEM ALL! some rooms were more impressive than others. The only room needing a little clean was the steam room.
You get a free robe and as many towels as you need in the changing rooms if you leave and come back. A light lunch was provided in the vitale cafe they have on site. A relaxing , clean space that fitted the theme of spa nicely.
We were offered a glass of free bubbly each as we came for a special occasion so that was a nice gesture.
We had a voucher of £50 to put towards any restaurant on site. As you are within the centre parcs complex, there is more than enough to pick from. We has a curry and was very nice.
The next morning, breakfast was yummy and fresh back at the vitale cafe. Lunch time at the spa is really busy so just bare that in mind, it didn't feel crowded which was good.
On our second day we had a 55 minute treatment each , I had a Pro-Glow Elemis facial which cost £99. My therapist was so kind as my skin is very sensitive and she used some new products on me. One of them being the papaya enzyme peel which i still buy and use to this day thanks to my facial. My partner had a Sweedish back massage which is said was 9/10 too. This also cost an extra £99. So in total cost £663 with treatments.
We also got another glass of bubbly after our treatments whilst relaxing in the after care treatment room.
I enjoyed both days. I was glad to get another day to go back and visit my favourite saunas, and relaxation before we drove home. I left really super relaxed.
The parking is right next to the spa (and free obviously) which is handy for when you leave on your 2nd day. I would 100% go back for a spa day! But maybe not an overnight stay as the apartments were only average.
Great for a girls pamper day or special occasion. Recommend a spa day or twighlight evening. This is a great spa for multiple experiences and a full day visit!
