Crown Sports Lockers upgrades facilities at St Michaels destination spa

Crown Sports Lockers has upgraded the spa changing rooms at St Michaels Resort in Cornwall
St Michaels Resort, an award-winning leisure destination in Cornwall, has completed a £10m expansion programme, redeveloping its spa and health club and enlarging its guest accommodation under a wider £50m construction programme.

The upgrade included lockers, vanities, bench seating and cubicles to complement the luxurious provision at the beach-front resort. To fit out the changing rooms the four-star destination – said to be the only Elemis SkinLab in the region and winner of the Best Spa in Cornwall – specified changing room specialists Crown Sports Lockers for its bespoke expertise in the design, manufacture and installation of high-end facilities, becoming the latest in a growing list of spa clients for the company.

The spa stands alongside the destination’s popular health club, opened in 2017, which includes high-end gym, three fitness studios, 17m pool and separate sauna. Existing facilities were moved over to a new section of the hotel under the year-long project.

A stone’s throw from Gyllyngvase Beach on Cornwall’s south coast, St Michaels has adopted a subtle maritime theme with the new spa, says interior designer & procurement executive Chloe Adcock, who worked with design consultants PBWC of St Ives and 20/20 Projects of Falmouth on plans for the facility.

“We refined 20/20 Projects’ designs then researched many different suppliers of everything from signage and flooring to wall coverings, furniture and lockers to achieve the look and feel we wanted,” she explains.

“As a leading destination spa we were seeking that little bit of extra luxury throughout the spa and applied the same criteria to lockers, changing and washroom areas. Crown offered that with their bespoke painted timber profiled beachwood-effect lockers – a style that runs throughout the spa.”

Wall-mounted and freestanding bench seating feature in both the male and female changing areas, along with showers, wet changing cubicles and off-white Corian vanity surfaces.

The resort adopted a unified approach to locker security, specifying keypads controlled by wristband for the spa changing areas to mirror the health club’s system.

“Swim, gym and access to changing facilities can be controlled from the wristband and it’s a convenient way for us as we prefer not to have the offering managed with staff, “ Adcock
adds. “Crown worked closely and flexibly with us throughout the project and were happy to install the locker keypads, which we had purchased separately.”

The visitor experience begins in the Arrival Lounge before progressing into the heart of the spa where specially-trained staff pamper guests in the ten treatment rooms and manicure and pedicure bars.

Guests can linger in the hydrotherapy pool, sauna, two steam rooms and Rhassoul room or move outdoors to indulge in a glazed Barrel sauna or hot tub with views over the gardens and out to sea.

“As you can imagine with such a large project, drawings were passing back and forth throughout the build,” says Adcock. “Crown were insistent on ensuring that the fitout would go without a hitch and we enjoyed constant communication with them.

Now an 84-bed resort, St Michaels attracts many overseas guests to a region renowned for its scenery.

“We enjoy fabulous views over the beach and beyond,” says Chloe, “and have strived to create a look and feel indoors to match that outside.”
