Lifehouse is a new contemporary day and stay spa located in Thorpe-le-Soken, Essex. Only an hour and 20 minutes drive from London and a 10 minute drive from the sandy beaches of the quaint little English town of Frinton-on-Sea, this holistic spa offers a life enriching spa experience.

The spa is set in 130 acres of grounds and 12 acres of historic listed gardens, formerly Thorpe Hall and home to Lord and Lady Byng, friends of King George V and Queen Mary. After a £30 million pound investment and the restoration of grounds the doors were opened to guests in December 2010.

Lifehouse includes 89 guestrooms all boasting beautiful views of either the gardens or courtyard, 35 treatment rooms, extensive gym, outdoor fitness circuit, exercise studio with plenty of different classes to enjoy, swimming pool, thermal spa area, relaxation areas, manicure and pedicure stations, make up booths, a hairdressing salon and spa boutique.

Lifehouse’s signature treatment is The Oriental Bathing Experience, lasting 2 hours and involves traditional massage techniques for the feet and ankles, bathing pools and a relaxing full body exfoliation and back and shoulder massage.

Enjoy mouth watering evening and lunchtime dining in the Water Lilies Restaurant, where they also serve delicious cooked breakfasts. Pre- dinner drinks can be taken in the Orchid Bar or relax in the Strawberry Tree Juice Bar where light snacks and smoothies can be enjoyed. Enjoyment, health and wellbeing are the mantra for the Lifehouse spa.
