Blue Spa is certainly not in ‘breakdown’ mode with its latest project; The Garage Spa. Its web site is now live www.thegaragespa.co.uk and will be regularly updated as the project progresses. This is such a fun project for the team to be a part of and the owners are a complete joy to work with. The concept challenges the typical spa experience and although introduces the fun element into spa it also embodies the honest spa experience.
The UK first log fired sauna tent has been lit at Ruthin Castle, North Wales. This new sauna experience has been sourced from a trip to our Scandinavian brothers (and sisters), home to the true sauna experts.
The tent is derived from the army, and embracing the sauna ritual wanted some ‘home comforts’ when living out in the arctic.
This is the real experience and is in essence how sauna’s originated and were meant to be used – outside braving the elements with kindred spirits. At Ruthin Castle, home to the Moat Spa, they will be introducing a generous sized fire pit for rustling up essential sustenance, and throwing in beers and wine to boot for comfort and relaxation. Think we’re taking the week off!
