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.

"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."
