Center Parcs holds many secrets.
For instance, who knew that being frozen with fear while hugging a zip-wire chord 30 feet above the ground, while your kids point and laugh at you from the ground, could be so much fun…or that you CAN actually still ride a bike?!
But, perhaps Center Parcs’ best-kept secret is Aqua Sana – its five-star on-site luxury spa and pampering facility.
In truth, Aqua Sana isn’t a secret. The newest name on Ireland’s spa-break scene, it might be, but it has already racked up an impressive array of awards – Best Destination Spa 2022, National Spa of the Year 2022, Best Spa in Ireland 2020.
But, it may not immediately come to mind when one thinks of Center Parcs.
The beauty of Aqua Sana – or one of them; along with the range of manicures, massages and other treatments on offer; not to mention the array of steam rooms, sauna rooms, magnificent pool and chill-out/relax areas (including its sleep rooms) – is that it’s more affordable than many such places and can either act as a getaway on its own; or a break from the activities of the day for a couple of hours.
That is to say, you can visit Aqua Spa on its own or as part of a wider Center Parcs visit.
If having a full break in Center Parcs, you can access Aqua Sana for individual treatments or a 3-hour spa stay. If visiting Longford Forest solely for Aqua Sana you can get an overnight stay package, for 2 people, for just €575. That covers one night’s accommodation in Center Parcs’ lakeside apartment complex and full use of the spa/treatment area for two days.
Also included is a €60 dinner voucher for use in any of the 6 restaurants in the main Center Parcs park (including the amazing Rajinda Pradesh restaurant, if you’re a fan of Indian cuisine) and a fluffy robe and slippers to take home. A virtually unbeatable experience.
The whole experience also acts as a fantastic gift idea; with vouchers available.
