Had my annual spa sauna day at Center Parcs in Sherwood Forest – fabulous! It’s been so cold this spring that it was nice to get some warmth on my bones.
They have around 15+ different experiences including the traditional Turkish Hamman (which I can only cope with for a few minutes!), a dry heat one in a Tyrolean log cabin (see pic) and an Indian Blossom sauna (consisting of eucalyptus and menthol.
One of my favourites is the Japanese Salt Steam Bath (see below). I also like the Greek Herbal room (with chamomile, sage and rosemary).
In addition, they have a very dark meditation room, a Japanese zen garden (pic), a Tyrolean garden, an open air log cabana, a swimming pool with massage jets, waterbeds, couches on the open air verdana with warm covers to snuggle under and some ice fountains.....
..... also, reflexology footspa, multi-sensory showers, a rest and relaxation room and two ‘warm’ rooms called the Tepidarium (pic below) and the Laconium – not as hot as the saunas but warmer than some of the other areas, with relaxing couches to recline on which are very nice, indeed!
The day ends up a treatment in the spa – this time my friend, Liz, and I went for the Re-energising treatment – a body massage with a facial.
