SPA Pop-up spa rocks music festival

Te Green Man music festi- val on the Glanusk Estate in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, has embraced the trend for pop-up wellness offerings for party people who would rather bathe in campsite mud than wade through it. Glamourous camping, more

commonly known as ‘glamp- ing,’ has become a popular UK tourism trend over the past few years and is quickly spreading to music festivals. Te on-site Nature Nurture Spa at Te Green Man had hot showers, a wood-fire sauna and an alfresco hot tub dur- ing the festival (14-17 August). Spa treatments using organic locally-sourced products were on offer, in addition to flushing toilets, fresh towels and a complimentary glass of champagne. In a section of the spa facility called the

Pamper Parlour, guests could have their hair washed and professionally styled – rather than waiting to wash at home aſter an entire weekend. Pedicures, manicures, facials and massages were also on the spa menu.

A.W. Lake develops new child-specific spa concept

A new child-specific spa concept has been revealed by Spa consultancy A.W. Lake, which involves an array of rain tunnels, a climbing wall and a “snow” shower dome. Following the rise in demand for wellness

spas interactive, educational and fun for children between the ages of three and nine – or older. Te spa will be divided into “toddler,” “child” and “youth” zones to allow children to play and learn safely. Details:
