      Aqua Sana Elveden Forest refurbishment

      Last updated 30 September 2022

      We’re delighted to announce that Aqua Sana Elveden Forest will be undergoing a multi-million pound transformation in early 2023.

      Aqua Sana Elveden Forest is set to be transformed into our signature and award-winning Forest Spa concept, complete with brand-new spa experiences and different spa ‘zones’ inspired by the world’s most extraordinary natural landscapes. The redesign will better reflect our woodland surroundings through the use of natural materials and by creating opportunities for guests to enjoy the forest views beyond the window.

      Whilst the spa itself will be closed our full treatment menu will be available to book during your break. Aqua Sana boutique will also remain open for guests to browse and shop.

      Aqua Sana Elveden Forest is the latest Center Parcs spa to undergo the transformation, following the refurbishment of Aqua Sana Sherwood Forest and Longleat Forest alongside our newer Forest Spas in Woburn Forest and Longford Forest, Ireland.

      Aqua Sana Elveden Forest will be closed from 3rd January 2023 until the end of August 2023. Guests with existing bookings taking place within this time period will be contacted individually.

Our Changing Places facility in this area will also be unavailable whilst these works take place until October 2022, however the bed from this facility will be available in our accessible changing room.

      • Smoking is permitted only in designated smoking locations on village and on the patio/ balcony of accommodation
      • The use of wood from the forest is strictly prohibited for use on the fire in accommodation (please only use logs purchased from ParcMarket)
      • The making of fires of any sort is strictly prohibited
      • Should you discover a fire no matter how small, please contact the village emergency number or call 999
      • Due to our forest environment we may need to withdraw the use of BBQ’s in extreme hot weather

      We do have regular fire checks in place but please be vigilant and help us to maintain a safe environment in the forest.

      Lake closures on our villages

      2 September 2019

      As we operate a number of submersible activities on the lakes at our villages, we test our lake water for quality on a regular basis. Due to natural organisms, we occasionally receive a reading that means we have to close our lake whilst we treat the issue and gain a normal reading again. Should this happen we will ensure that guest disruption is kept to a minimum and that we bring activities back online as soon as we possibly can.

That’s why we need your help to reduce the traffic on our villages to protect what you love about Center Parcs: a place where little ones can run free and explore, and parents can feel at ease.
