Award-winning Aqua Sana Spa

The annual awards were held on Monday 2 August and saw Aqua Sana Sherwood Forest winning the Best Day Spa at the Good Spa Awards while also being shortlisted in two other categories – Aqua Sana Woburn Forest, in Bedfordshire, for Best Retreat Spa and Aqua Sana Longleat Forest, in Wiltshire, for Best Countryside Getaway.


We spoke to Kay Pennington, Group Spa Manager, who states “Since we launched our Forest Spa concept in 2017 this is the fourth time Aqua Sana Sherwood has been recognised by the Good Spa Guide. We are very fortunate to have a fantastic product in a beautiful location within the forest , however  I truly believe that it is down to the individual team members at Aqua Sana Sherwood who are committed and driven to drive excellent service. They are a very passionate and motivated team and we have all stayed in close contact during the pandemic to come back stronger than ever. To win the Best Day Spa (sponsored by Dale Sauna ) is the best accolade and a true credit to every member of the team.”


In 2017, Aqua Sana Sherwood Forest underwent a £3m refurbishment to introduce the first Forest Spa, bringing together 25 experiences to harness the proven benefits of forest bathing. Set across six spa zones – Nordic Forest, Treetop Escape, Treetop Nesting, Volcanic Forest, Hot Springs and Forest Immersion – the spa also has a heated outdoor pool, as well as a number of treatment rooms, and express treatment areas.


Aqua Sana Sherwood Forest is home to the exclusive Treetop Sauna, set amongst the forest canopy with panoramic windows giving a stunning view of the surrounding woodland, as well as a range of saunas, steam rooms, relaxation areas and so much more.

Offering a range of luxurious treatments from well-known product houses such as Elemis, Aqua Sana has recently begun working with VOYA to deliver their organic seaweed-based treatments, which are suitable for those who have been treated for cancer or who are undergoing cancer treatment. Aqua Sana also offers two treatments designed by their own therapists, using Aqua Sana own brand products.


Seb Firman, Aqua Sana Manager at Sherwood Forest, said: “I’m thrilled that we have been named Best Day Spa. As a brand, we’re always looking to introduce new experiences, treatments and products for our guests, so it’s great to be recognised for offering a great experience. It’s been a really tough 15 months for everyone, but it’s great to be seeing guests returning to spas. Our team always seek to create a space where guests can relax, escape daily life and reconnect with the natural world, so I know they’ll be so pleased to have won this award!”
