Ten years ago this August the doors of SenSpa were opened to the public for the first time, and since then it has been a whirlwind of excitement for us – and relaxation for our guests!
The name SenSpa was first coined by our Wedding Coordinator, Francoise Gysemans. The word ‘Sen’ is used not only to describe the body’s energy lines in Thai traditional medicine, but also means ‘Forest’ in Chinese. There are a large number of Chinese Thais in Thailand and SenSpa is in the heart of the New Forest.
Popular for its facilities, treatments and Authentic Thai philosophy, SenSpa has won several awards during its first ten years. By 2007, SenSpa had progressed so much that it was shortlisted and awarded Destination/Hotel Spa of the Year, by the very prestigious British and Beauty Spa Awards.
The following years have seen SenSpa’s truly unique character, facilities, staff, products and treatments praised by industry professionals, most notably through the many awards and nominations it has received such as Best Body Therapist 2009 at the British Beauty & Spa Awards, Most Marvellous Massage 2010 and Best Spa in the South 2012 and 13 at the Good Spa Guide Awards and Therapist of the Year 2014 at the Professional Beauty Awards to name just a few.
However what is most important is that despite 10 incredibly successful years, SenSpa has no plans to slow down. Achieving such great awards, nominations and acknowledgments does not make anyone rest on their laurels, and without a doubt, the plans for 2014 and beyond are as equally exciting…
