Cranwell Resort Earns Travel Awards

12:00AM / Tuesday, September 26, 2006

Lenox - Cranwell Resort, Spa and Golf Club was recently honored with top honors from two prestigious industry organizations.

The World Travel Awards named Cranwell "Best Resort in Massachusetts." Readers of SpaFinder named Cranwell as "Best Spa for Golf."

Cranwell Resort has also earned a "Four Diamonds" from the AAA for the past five years.


These awards are in addition to a number of accolades Cranwell received in the past year, including the "Best Resort in Massachusetts" by Boston Magazine’s New England Travel and Life.

Cranwell Resort was also featured in the book “100 Best Spas in the World,” and its golf course was included in “America’s Top 100 Golf Courses,” by Zagat’s reader survey.

13th Annual World Travel Awards

The highly prestigious World Travel Awards – recently dubbed the “Oscars of the Travel Industry” by the Wall Street Journal – are granted annually by leading travel professionals around the globe. This year 167,000 voters, including 110,000 travel agents, participated in the balloting, and Cranwell was chosen Best Resort in Massachusetts from among an elite crop of finalists.

Since 1993 the World Travel Awards have recognized the best the travel industry has to offer.

Distinguished as one of the Historic Hotels of America, Cranwell Resort, Spa and Golf Club sits on a 380-acre site landscaped by Fredrick Law Olmsted, the famed designer of New York City’s Central Park and Boston’s Emerald Necklace. The elegant mansion, centerpiece of the Resort’s grounds, dates back to the Gilded Age of the late 19th century.

SpaFinder Readers Choice Award

Spafinder.com and Luxury SpaFinder attract millions of spa consumers annually. To construct their Best of List, patrons of both the magazine and website cast ballots for what turned out to be more than 1,000 different spa properties worldwide. Voters were asked to vote only for spas they’ve personally visited within the past three years and, as one of the most popular spots for golf in New England.

Cranwell boasts a 6,200 yard, 18-hole golf course, and a 12-acre driving range, with breathtakingly beautiful views of the bucolic Berkshire hills. The course winds throughout the resort’s 380 acre property, and the golf course itself was designed and built in 1926 by Wayne Styles and John Van Kleek. Styles and Van Kleek were responsible for over 60 golf courses between 1924 and 1932, most of which were in New England.

Additionally, Cranwell runs a prestigious Golf Digest school on its grounds, and top-tier instructors are available for private and group lessons. The golf course offers state-of-the-art amenities like GPS equipped carts, which provide golfers with yardage calculation and other resort communication.

About Cranwell Resort, Spa and Golf Club

Cranwell’s renowned spa is the only facility in New England that features the Carita Paris facial “The Renovateur”, as well as its signature treatment, “The Grand Mosaic Dry Float,” an ethereal two-hour body wrap, warm water immersion, and full body massage.

The Spa also offers classes in Pilates, Yoga, Body Conditioning and Aerobics, as well as specialized yoga and other conditioning classes specifically for golfers. Additionally the resort provides an ideal setting for outdoor activities, including tennis, biking, hiking and Nordic walking, with the majestic Berkshires as your personal playground.
