Aqua Sana, Ireland’s first forest spa retreat, has officially opened in Center Parcs Longford.

Set amongst 400 acres of woodland within the Center Parcs Longford Forest resort, Aqua Sana blends a forest environment into a spa experience. Day and overnight spa packages are available at Aqua Sana, which is also Ireland’s largest stand alone spa at more than 2,500 sq metres – including 14 treatment rooms where spa therapists deliver Elemis and VOYA treatments. Overnight guests can relax and unwind in the Lakeside apartments.

The spa offers 21 hot, cold, sensory and meditative experiences across four zones – Nordic Forest, Hot Springs, Volcanic Forest and Treetop Nesting. Experiences range from the dry heat of the Nordic Sauna with views of the pine forest, to the Forest Rain Walk which harnesses the benefits of meridian acupressure.

The forest environment is even more apparent with the Hot Springs Garden, where large outdoor hot tubs allow guests to soak under the stars breathing in fresh forest air. The Forest Garden, unique to Aqua Sana Longford Forest, surrounds guests with greenery.

Spa visitors are also offered complimentary sleep sessions, which with a skincare taster using products from Elemis or VOYA.  The session concludes with a relaxation ritual.

Kay Pennington, Aqua Sana Group Manager, said: “Aqua Sana is a unique spa experience, bringing together the proven benefits of forest bathing with dedicated and outstanding customer service. Not only is it the country’s biggest spa, it also offers spa experiences which tap into current spa trends, such as forest bathing, while also offering traditional spa experiences, such as saunas and hot tubs, albeit with a forest twist. We’re confident that our guests will leave feeling rested, revitalised and restored.”
