Nestled among the beautiful
Berkshire Mountains in Lenox, Massachusetts is the Cranwell Resort, Spa & Golf Club. The resort features luxury accommodations, an 18-hole championship golf course and now the largest resort spa in the Northeast.
The owners of the resort wanted to provide their guests and clients with a
four season resort. They concluded that adding the spa building to match the
four diamond award winning facilities on the property would achieve the desired result.
The new, 35,000-square-foot multilevel spa connects two main guest room buildings with over 500-feet of glass enclosed walkways and connects to one building by a 150-foot underground tunnel. To match the facade of the resort's 19-century centerpiece, the Cranwell Mansion, the exterior of the building uses brick and precast concrete.
An 18-foot high glass atrium encloses the 60- x 30-foot heated indoor lap pool and lounging patio with a 20-foot high glass curtain wall. The extensive use of custom windows throughout brings in an abundance of natural and borrowed light. A unique energy saving pool-pak dehumidification unit in the pool area removes the moisture from the air and converts the energy into heat for the pool.
The spa building also features sixteen treatment rooms, a spa-suite, fitness center and men's and women's locker rooms that provide each guest with a whirlpool, steam, sauna and a two-sided fireplace that separates the whirlpool rooms and lounges for the men and women. The spa building also features a cafe and retail shop.
To compliment the high-end atmosphere in the resort, custom lighting fixtures, silestone countertops, waterfall faucets and mahogany lockers were installed. The fitness center boasts 18-foot cathedral ceilings and a sprung wood floor in the aerobics room.
