Available to book from now until the end of September, the luxury hotel is combining its natural outdoor surroundings with award-winning spa facilities for the ultimate retreat to recharge body and mind this summer.
Rooted in ancient Japanese healing methods and known to improve sleep, mood, ability to focus and lower stress levels, Forest Bathing, the method of being calm and quiet amongst nature, has become a popular way to relax and unwind. The multi-sensory experience designed to enhance physical and mental wellbeing sees all guests receiving a Forest Bathing therapy guide with mindful and meditation tasks plus illustrated maps to guide them through the New Forest with its beautiful landscape and multiple picturesque nature trails.
The package also includes access to the award-winning SenSpa, the world class Thai spa that focuses on holistic wellness inspired by ancient Eastern rituals. Enjoy its state-of-the-art hydrotherapy facilities for a wholly sensory experience – from the thermal rooms to the experience showers, you’ll enter a state of bliss in no time. Guests will also indulge in a 30-minute Thai-inspired spa treatment with one of SenSpa’s expert therapists.
Come evening, head to one of the hotel’s excellent and varied restaurants for dinner. Zen Garden is the perfect choice for authentic Thai dishes and exotic and aromatic flavours at their finest. Alternatively, modern British brasserie Cambium offers seasonal plates and fresh, locally sourced ingredients whilst Le Blaireau showcases refined and elevated dishes with French flair.
At the end of the day, retire to one of the hotel’s stylish suites and luxury bedrooms, each designed with tranquillity in mind. The traditional Manor Rooms feature four poster beds, whilst the Garden Rooms offer a secluded hideaway complete with a private balcony or patio overlooking the beautiful and expansive grounds. Before checking out, tuck into a delicious New Forest breakfast that will set you up perfectly for the day ahead.
