Visitors can enjoy everything from pure relaxation in the spa, with ila Spa face and body treatments and full access to the thermal suite, sauna, 34 degree indoor-outdoor pool and Zen room, to a HIIT, yoga or Pilates workout led by one of five master trainers – and there’s even classes and play zones for the little people, too.

Wave Garden Spa, North Wales
Nestled within the grounds of the Adventure Parc Snowdonia in the Conwy Valley, the arrival of the £1.25 million Wave Garden Spa on March 26 oozes the perfect simplicity with pure water, fresh air and freedom.
