measure and entirely customisable, creating truly unique and personalised spa settings ideal for the home, hotel or exclusive development. Trailblazing a new generation of smart technology, KLAFS at Guncast enable clients to interact with and activate the sauna remotely via an app, as well as pre-setting ‘moods’ for the sauna, with personalised light, music, temperature and humidity.

Aqua Sana Sherwood Forest is located within acres of natural woodland and is a truly spectacular destination. It comprises more than 25 spa experiences which take inspiration from its Forest Spa concept, with the Treetop Sauna, Forest Terrace and Hot Springs Garden boasting especially breathtaking views of the forest. Spa guests can visit for the day, an evening or a three-hour session if on a Center Parcs break. Katie Murphy, Business Manager at the Good Spa Guide said: “The Good Spa Guide would like to congratulate Aqua Sana Sherwood Forest for winning the Best Destination Spa category in the Good Spa Awards. The high number of public votes reflect not only the exceptionally high quality and high standard of facilities and customer service at Aqua Sana Sherwood Forest but also the public’s fondness for and appreciation of the spa, its facilities and its people.”

Aquavia Spa – a leading manufacturer of hot tubs and swim spas – has launched a brand new corporate identity. With more than 30 years of experience that guarantee the quality of its wide range of products, the company has decided to reinvent itself and start a new era. The new logo has been developed based on a design of simple and balanced lines, is easy to adapt and its aim is to gain visibility without losing the brand essence. The change of font to a sans-serif one and the new silver toned palette provide the necessary nuances of design, innovation and exclusivity. A decontextualisation that steps back from the obvious blue = water and approaches the potential target market. The idea of the new design arises from the premise of creating a unique and readable logo that defines the company’s mission and values. As for the imagotype, the circle symbolises perfection and eternity, as it has no beginning or end, and is used to represent the movement of the water. The circular shape projects a positive emotional message reinforcing the brand’s image and, in turn, it serves as the stamp of the firm. Aquavia Spa +34 973 533 795
