Lifehouse Spa & Hotel


The Lifehouse Spa & Hotel is a contemporary spa set in English Heritage-Listed Thorpe Hall Gardens close to the pretty Essex town of Frinton-on-Sea. The spa has a large, dramatic pool area with grey, almost industrial, pillars, and huge twisted ropes decorating the walls. If you’re looking for cocooning quiet, try The Hidden Sanctuary for a more private experience. As well as traditional spa treatments, Lifehouse offers health and wellbeing consultations from resident specialists including fitness, life coaching, nutrition, weight loss and holistic therapies.

What others are saying

"Lovely spa, really friendly and helpful staff. Steam rooms, sauna, facial treatments and pool are excellent and so is the restaurant! Thoroughly enjoyed our fourth stay here. We've stayed early and midweek and certainly not too crowded with covid in mind. The spa is set in beautiful grounds and nearby Frinton is worth a visit with some really good independent shops and a walks along the coast. Overall well worth a night or two for some total relaxation."

"I have been here several times for both day visits and overnight stays and have never been disappointed. The spa is super clean and all the staff are helpful and friendly. The food is just fabulous- well cooked and delicious. Highly recommend "

"I am desperate for a break due to having experienced a huge amount of stress over the last three years whilst trying to look after my partner who has terminal cancer . He is very seriously ill in hospital at the moment and I am worn out. I recently had a fall and my whole body is in pain. I just need a rest and someone to take care of me for a while. Do you have any availability "

"Not a retreat, not quiet and not a serene atmosphere. Beware the loud music and drinking. Very much a place for a hen-do or a girls' party but not a retreat type spa. Disappointing food and facilities, Full English on offer for breakfast and the whole place much more of a hotel with beauty rooms than a full blown spa. Pleasant staff but do not go here for something ultra relaxing or holistic."
