HOT TUB, SWIM SPA & WELLNESS

Superior Plans For Continued Growth In 2020

With continued growth for what is now the UK’s largest hot tub importer and distributor, Superior Spas have recruited key personnel ready for the 2020 season and the opportunities that lay ahead. Understanding any company’s growth and knowing how to deal with its consequences is vital and not always easy to achieve. However, Superior realised that to move forward and be more efficient to cope with their evergrowing demands, the company needed to develop and fulfill key roles to sooth their current expansion. With this in mind, Superior set to work on fulfilling four important new job roles to meet the expectations they have set themselves for the year ahead. The increasing number of staff that Superior now employ, meant they needed to introduced an experienced HR Manager to orchestrate recruitment, ongoing training and development of teams / employees and also improve the company culture moving forward. With the sheer volume of containers arriving on a daily basis and the thousands of deliveries that need to be organised and undertaken each year, it was important to have also an experienced Operations Manager to oversee all logistics, warehouse and stock control. Superior Spas growth into Europe is continuing at a good rate and is a key focus moving into 2020, so the introduction of an Export Manager will only help this avenue of their business. Lastly, Superior have introduced a role of Head of Customer Experience. The new role will be responsible for customer service as a whole and emphasis on neglected areas of after sales that the company know they can improve on. Once again Superior have recruited an experienced individual who brings knowledge in from a different industry, which can only improve the overall performance of the company.

Aqua Sana Spa Brings Forest Bathing To Longleat Forest

Aqua Sana Longleat Forest has unveiled its brand-new Forest Spa, bringing together 24 spa experiences to harness the proven benefits of forest bathing. The spa, which has been completely refurbished to include all-new experiences, has drawn inspiration from different aspects of nature, including the changing seasons, rainforest showers, hot springs, ice and some of the most beautiful forests around the world. Following the £6m investment, Aqua Sana Longleat Forest boasts a huge range of steam rooms and saunas, a heated outdoor pool, an ice cave, a selection of relaxation rooms and reflexology footbaths. The spa has also introduced two brand-new experiences which are exclusive to Aqua Sana Longleat Forest – the Forest Cavern and Moonlight Steam Room. The unique Forest Cavern replicates the feeling of discovering a cave nestled deep within a tropical forest. Infused with pomegranate and myrrh, and with the soothing background

noise of trickling water, the space is designed to create a tepidarium-style heat and is ideal for practicing mindfulness and breathing techniques. The design of the experience draws on the Wiltshire landscape, taking inspiration from the many caves found within the local area. The Moonlight Steam Room, which is accompanied by a Moonlight Shower to continue the benefits, carries the forest theme through and replicates the sensation of finding yourself in a darkened tropical forest with a dusky glow from the light of the moon. The experience harnesses lunar power to transport guests through the colours and sensations of dawn and dusk, leaving them stimulated, refreshed and soothed. The spa is spread across five ‘zones’ – Nordic Forest, Hot Springs, Volcanic Forest, Forest Immersion and Treetop Nesting – each celebrating different aspects of nature through a spectrum of sounds, colours and infusions.

Air Source Heat Pumps – A Green Initiative For Spas UK manufacturer RotoSpa is launching its 2020 green initiative starting with its range of air source heat pumps. According to the Birmingham-based business, these heat pumps are the most efficient method of heating a spa or swim spa quickly and cheaply – they are a green renewable energy source and can generate up to 8.8kW of heating output from just 1.6kW input! They slash heating costs with 75% less energy consumption when compared with a traditional electric heating element and achieve set temperatures in a fraction of the time. Retrofit fully integrated or standalone systems are available meaning existing hot tub or swim spa installations can also benefit – the larger the water volume the quicker the return on investment! The savings generated from the massive reduction in electricity cost to heat the water will pay for the investment in the

unit over a short period of time, this means the heat pump is actually free. The entry-level model requires only 1.1kW power input delivering 5.5kW output meaning there is now a sustainable solution for clients with low power availability or off grid applications. RotoSpa’s integrated air source heat pumps use eco-friendly refrigerant and work in tandem with the spa control pack allowing complete controllability through the main touch pad allowing users to heat via the heat pump only, conventional heating element or both giving rapid heat up time and true flexibility. Heat times are vastly reduced and the units will function reliably in sub-zero climates. RotoSpa 0121 354 3428 www.rotospa.co.uk
