Forum scoops six prestigious Spa Traveller Awards

Category: News, Suite Treats

The Celtic Manor Resort was this year’s biggest winner at the prestigious Spa Traveller Awards.

The Forum Spa at the five-star resort claimed no fewer than six awards, more than any other spa in the industry-leading, international awards.

Celtic Manor’s Marieke Teagle took the highly-coveted Best UK Spa Manager title and the Forum Spa was also voted the Best UK Hotel Spa, Best UK Family-Friendly Spa Resort and Best UK Spa for Groups.

Completing the impressive haul in the awards announced to coincide with this week’s National Spa Week, the Forum Spa was also voted Wales’ Best Day Spa and Best for a Spa Day in Wales.

Spa Traveller Publisher David van der Meulen said: “I think winning six awards is some sort of record for the Spa Traveller Awards but it’s richly deserved by Celtic Manor. It’s among the very best spa properties not just in the UK but in the world.

“The nature of the property, the size of the spa and all the other facilities – the hotels, the golf courses, the family-friendly activities, the food and beverage outlets – make it a unique proposition.

“Like all good spa managers, Marieke Teagle is in tune not only with the needs of the consumer but, at the same time, making the spa a viable business product and in tune with the needs of a successful resort.”


Forum Spa Manager Marieke Teagle added: “I’m so proud to have been voted the UK’s Best Spa Manager and for the Forum Spa to have been voted the Best UK Hotel Spa among so many other awards.

“These awards are a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our entire spa team to make the experience enjoyed by our clients the best it can be. The fact the awards were voted for as readers’ choice selections is especially pleasing.

“These really are the most prestigious and sought-after awards in the spa industry, so to win in six categories is something very special.”

The Forum Spa opened as part of Celtic Manor’s five-star Resort Hotel in 1999 and was awarded the 5-wave grading from the British International Spa Association in its first year of operation.

It boasts 16 private beauty treatment rooms offering the finest beauty treatments and the most contemporary therapies available in a relaxed and ambient setting.

Signature treatments include the Elemis Herbal Steam Temple, a cleansing treatment in which medicinal chakra muds are applied and rinsed by a tropical rain shower.
