Aqua Sana's Elveden Forest (UK) spa to reopen on 29 September with new look and facilities by Sparcstudio
The existing spa has been remodelled and refreshed with 25 new wellness experiences
Inspiration has been drawn from the surrounding forest and extraordinary natural environments from around the globe
Center Parcs has made a multi-million pound investment to realise the new spa

Center Parcs is conducting a multi-million-pound spa remodel at its Elveden Forest holiday village in Norfolk, UK.

Reimagined in line with Center Parcs’ Forest Spa concept, the spa will reopen on 29 September with 25 experiences.

The new facilities will be spread across six zones and be inspired by some of the world's most extraordinary natural environments.

Center Parcs says the redesign “reflects our woodland surroundings through the use of natural materials, views and nature-inspired immersive experiences”.

The overhaul was completed with input from interior design firm Sparcstudio – the same design team that refreshed the spas at Center Parcs Longleat, Longford Forest, Sherwood Forest and Woburn Forest with the award-winning Forest Spa concept.

In total, Center Parcs has five holiday parks in the UK as well as one in Ireland. All are complete with spas.
