Spa & Leisure

Surrounded by 320 acres of Essex countryside, the spa and leisure facilities at Crowne Plaza Resort are wide reaching to say the least. For more active guests there are eight tennis courts as well as badminton, squash, table tennis and a gym; while the spa area has a pool, sauna and steam room, and a manicure and pedicure room catering for up to seven people at a time. There is also a relaxation room complete with three four-poster beds in which to doze post-treatment.

With 12 treatment rooms, the relaxation experience is equally well catered to. The spa uses a combination of Elemis and ESPA products to deliver a selection of massages, facials, scrubs, wraps, manicures, pedicures, and finishing touches as well as reflexology and hopi ear candling.

Hotel & Accommodation

The first thing that strikes you about the Crown Plaza Resort is just how contemporary and new the building is – light and spacious, the 194 bedroom venue boasts modern style with sweeping views of the golf courses and surrounding countryside. Offering a blend of fine dining and good old fashioned comfort food, there are two options when it comes to sustenance – Brasserie 1 is renowned for its buffet, while The Grill Room offers a selection of locally sourced produce, and lighter options are available in Bar Lacu and Sports Bar.

Please note: the nightclub will be open on a Saturday between March and October 2018, subject to closure for a private event or low occupancy.
