Aqua Sana takes top prize
Aqua Sana Woburn Forest has been awarded the highly prestigious ‘Residential Spa of the Year’ accolade at The Professional Beauty Awards 2016. The awards ceremony took place in London on Sunday February 28, 2016. The Professional Beauty Awards is the most prestigious awards scheme for the beauty and spa industry, with over 250 entries each year.
Commenting on the accolade, Kerry Fenton-Kent, Group Aqua Sana Manager, said: “I’m very proud of the team! To be recognised and receive this incredible award means that all our hard work is continuing to provide a spa industry-leading experience for our guests. The spa has been open less than two years but the team’s commitment is second to none. This is a real testament to their efforts.”
Extreme makeover: Sports Café edition
Work is almost finished in the Sports Café at Sherwood Forest and Elveden Forest. In a few weeks’ time, we’ll be able to unveil the finished makeovers, which are creating a contemporary, urban look. Whether it’s a full cooked breakfast, a hot baguette at lunch time, or dinner and drinks while you watch the match on the wide screens, Sports Café is the hub of life on our Villages. For a sneak peak of the new look, take a look at the artist’s impressions below.
Spice up your life
If you haven’t already heard, the new menu has launched at Rajinda Pradesh and it’s an absolute scorcher. There are amazing new dishes and mouth-watering photos. Take a look at the full menu or read our article to find out how we developed, designed, tested and photographed the new dishes.
A good hare day
Rare brown hares have been caught on camera at Woburn Forest for the first time. Lucie Vicentijevic, Senior Conservation Ranger said: “It’s great that the hares have decided to spend some time with us and are enjoying the environment we’ve worked so hard to protect and enhance. Hares have had a tough time in the UK and it’s good to see some recovery in their numbers.” Watch the video of their star appearance, left.
Tip top treetops
This month we revealed that four luxury Treehouses are being built at Elveden Forest this year. Work began on the Treehouses, which will be located on the secluded far west side of the Village, last December. They are due to be complete in the summer and set to be on sale to guests later in the year. Each one will be a flagship of high end forest accommodation – find out more about the project and what the Treehouses will include.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on the development of spring at our Villages over the next few weeks, so we can be sure we bring you the first glimpse of any adorable baby wildlife.
