Multi-million pound development will put it among the top resorts in the UK
APPROVAL has been given for Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa’s planning application which will see its current top-end facilities transformed into a ‘world-class, multi-purpose resort’. It is believed that the multi-million pound development will place it firmly on the map as one of the best golf, spa and leisure destinations in the UK.
The approved plans will see the construction of a new two-storey golf clubhouse, event space with capacity for 300 guests, extended bar and restaurant facilities, a new reception building, a reconfigured health club and extensive spa, including four lakeside eco-lodges. In addition, there will be a new two-storey building housing 43 additional en-suite guest rooms, plus a further 20 en-suite guest rooms as part of the conversion of the current spa and leisure building.
In addition to world-class golf, the new spa facilities will be a key attraction of the resort and present an ideal setting for a relaxing break or spa day. The spa will comprise 12 treatment rooms, several relaxation areas with stunning views across the lake, an extensive suite of thermal experiences, indoor and outdoor vitality pools and hot tubs, internal and alfresco dining on an extensive external terrace, a deck over water with sunken fire pits and luxury day beds offering guests a perfect view across the lake. When speaking about the approved plans, director of CS Hotel Solutions, Christopher King, said:
“It has been great to have the support of Sefton Council in approving our plans and we are grateful that they share our vision.“We are confident that these redevelopment plans will not only reposition the resort as a world-class destination but also further enhance the region’s attractions to tourism, which already boasts some of the best golf courses in the world as well an outstanding coastline and of course the major draw of Liverpool itself.”
