Image Magazine, February 2011
We hit the spa – and felt the tension drain away within minutes of stepping into the jasmine-scented, bamboo-filled calm. Offering a host of traditional Thai massages and treatments - many of the therapists are Thai - you can also indulge in some seriously yummy (but reassuringly healthy) Thai food, created with ethically sourced, local ingredients, in the ‘Zen Garden’ restaurant looking out onto (guess what) - a Zen garden.

I’ve had some massages in my time but never before have I fallen into such a serene state of bliss.
The London Word.com, January 2010
From our point of view Senspa was a blissful retreat nestled in the New Forest. The hydrotherapy facililites were fantastic and the treatments themselves were the best I've had outside of Thailand. A perfect, relaxing escape from everyday life and a place to recoup, revamp and revive. We loved it.
Cosmopolitan, December 2009
Top Sante Loves – Heavenly Thai –Style spa in the New Forest
Apart from having one of the best spa areas I’ve seen – the relaxing pools and numerous thermal rooms totally wash away the stresses of life – it was the high quality of treatment. The Sen Fusion Signature Massage was possible the most blissful body therapy I’d ever had.
Top Sante, December 2009
SenSpa was a wonderful surprise… We enjoyed the hydrotherapy pool. The water was warm with lots of buttons to press activating jets of water. We were pummelled and pampered washing away our aches and pains.
Wellbeing Magazine, November 2009
After 90 minutes I found myself in an almost hypnotic state of relaxation. I arrived frazzled and left feeling relaxed and energised- almost Zen-like.

Marieclaire.co.uk, August 2009
Even if I wanted to, there is no way I could knock the staff, kinder smilier and more helpful people I have yet to meet. Careys feels like it is a happy place to work, and in turn transformed it into a happly place to be. The fact that it is only an hour and a half from Waterloo station in London just makes it all the more tempting to become a spa convert
Beauty and the Dirt, August 2009
The (hydrotherapy) suite’s main attraction is its therapy pool, which has specially designed underwater seating areas where you can sit or lie in utmost comfort. Like a kid in a candy store I soon leapt into the water and started pressing all the buttons that make bubbles and fountains appear from nowhere…The hours flew by and I left knowing that I’d happily recommend SenSpa to anyone. It’s ideal for anyone wanting a bit of high-octane pampering, but would also suit seasoned spa addicts looking for something new. Whether you go with friends, a partner or on your own, you can guarantee you wont run out of things to do!
Kiss and Makeup.tv, July 2009

Zest, June 2009
With its picturesque New Forest setting, gorgeous rooms and affordable prices it offers everything you’d want from a UK break… And the scrummy menu on offer at the spa’s Zen Garden restaurant has got to be the best food west of Bangkok!
Closer online, March 2009
"Without exaggeration, I think it is possibly one of the best Spas that I have visited. The treatments and facilities are second to none, the staff are exceptional in their helpfulness and friendliness and the hotel itself was super. As for the food, the Thai restaurant was out of this world - I haven't had Thai food this good - anywhere! The Manor restaurant was comparable to the likes of The Ivy or any Gordon Ramsey that I've visited - and the French Bistro just lovely! As you can tell, we LOVED it."

Everything about Carey’s Manor and the Thai-themed SenSpa is the height of luxury, from the large hydrotherapy pool to the changing rooms with their ample supply of fluffy towels and banks of hairdryers.

This is truly a luxurious haven. It’s indulgent, relaxing and first class. High points? The spa just cannot be faulted. The attention to details is incredible and the staff make you feel special and looked after at every turn. The low points? Nothing, other than it’s not situated in my back garden.

The facilities are brilliant…not to mention the Zen Garden Restaurant that serves scrummy Thai food.
Cosmopolitan, January 2008
We loved the food! If you thought spas were all about rabbit food, you'll love the to-die-for dishes like Thai Chicken Green Curry at the Zen Garden Restaurant. The piece de resistence has to be the Rhassoul mud room

The spa is the most wonderful place and the staff are fantastic and couldn't do enough for us.The food was fantastic and I can honestly say I haven't felt that chilled out in years!
Kim Michaels, Wave 105, May 2007
There is something very liberating, and perhaps tribal, about scooping up the runny brown gloop and slapping it on your skin; think Surrey housewives meet Apocalpto. We could retreat into the pair of warm, tiled,snug seats and watch the twinkling ceiling lights change colour somewhere in the mist.
Finanical Times Magazine - May 2007

The Thai therapists were excellent and afterwards I felt relaxed and sleepy, and my skin felt much smoother.
Prima Beauty, May 2006
As my Thai translation skills leave something to be desired this would simply translate to just yum!
The melody of flavours and textures are amazing, as is the presentation- true selection of delights on one plate. Altogether the whole package of the Thai environment, dancing and fine food created a totally enjoyable experience, which I am sure would make a refreshing change to anyone’s culinary adventures.
Hampshire Life, May 2006
Go and treat yourself to a spa break in this heavenly hotel. The second you set foot inside it feels as though you are a world away from normality.
Senspa has an amazing restaurant where you can nibble on authentic Thai cuisine (The Thai green curry is delicious) or sup on a delicious freshly made smoothie.
OK Magazine, May 2006

....It was fantastic....the hours (Thai) massage was like something i had never experienced before and left me feeling superb....The thing that i enjoyed most was that for the day it was all about looking after me - the staff there couldn't do enough....i felt like a million dollars when i came out
The therapists - many of whom come from Thailand - are highly skilled and trained....The combination of classic oriental and contemporary design creates a luxurious and relaxing atmosphere - the ideal escape.

Southern Daily Echo Weekend
What is on offer here has to be experienced at first hand - and it is unique....Senspa is a refreshing taste of Thailand....pure indulgence.
After the hectic and quite daunting schedule for the morning, i thoroughly appreciated the calming spa, its treatments and wonderful therapies.
The treatments are excellent...the best thing about SenSpa is the hydrotherapy area.
