Aqua Sana Longleat Forest is having a makeover - Updated 4th December 2018
From now until November 2019, we’ll be carrying out extensive work in order to bring you a breath-taking, revolutionary new Spa in the forest.
We appreciate that there is never an ideal time to carry out such work but don’t worry Aqua Sana will remain open during this time and all treatments will be available. We’ll be doing our best to minimise disruption but there may be occasional noise, particularly in the early months of the project. The most extensive works will take place from 28th January until 11th November 2019 and during this period there will be some reduction in spa facilities. We will be monitoring capacity to ensure we offer the most relaxing spa experience possible.
If you visit during the extensive works period (28th January to 11th November), you will receive a £10 voucher on arrival to thank you for your patience.
Please keep checking this page for all the latest updates on this very exciting new project.
