Details revealed for Center Parcs’ Ireland spa

Center Parcs has revealed details of the spa at its first Irish resort, set to open later this year.

Being built at a cost of €10m, the Aqua Sana spa at Center Parcs Longford Forest is set to be one of the largest stand-alone spas in Ireland at more than 2,500sq m (26,909sq ft), and will include 14 treatment rooms and 23 different spa experiences. 

The spa will use Irish organic skincare brand Voya and British skincare brand Elemis in the spa's treatments. 

"We are really excited to be introducing Aqua Sana to Ireland in 2019 and welcoming guests to our unique, luxury forest retreat," said Kay Pennington, Aqua Sana group spa manager. "Aqua Sana will offer a variety of treatments and we know that Voya and Elemis are the ideal beauty brands to provide our guests with the best possible spa experience."

Voya founder Kira Walton said she's been working with Aqua Sana since 2017 and is "delighted" to have been chosen as a partner at Longford Forest. 

"Center Parcs is in tune with Voya's love of all things natural, so this partnership makes complete sense," she said. 

Set in 395 acres (1.6sq km) of forest land near the village of Ballymahon, Center Parcs Longford Forest will have a capacity of up to 2,500 guests and will employ around 1,000 people. 

Incorporating Center Parcs' classic features, the new resort will also include a subtropical indoor waterpark, restaurants and shops, along with 470 lodges and 30 apartments that will house guests in a natural forest setting. 

Center Parcs currently runs five holiday villages in the UK, all with substantial spas.
