Ceramique Internationale Adds Finishing Touches to Prestigious Golf Resort

Tile specialist Ceramique Internationale has contributed to a new £2.4m refurbishment project, adding the finishing touches to Merseyside’s prestigious Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa.

Set in almost 200 acres of parkland, the refurbishment programme at the golf resort and country club was completed in July, with improved golf facilities, a new look restaurant and bar, a renovation of the resort’s 62 bedrooms, and the creation of 14 extra luxury loft suites. 

The new renovation also incorporates the refurbishment of its spa, which includes three new treatment rooms, and an extension to the current health facilities – with an expanded swimming pool area and the introduction of a Himalayan salt sauna, laconium, steam room, ice fountain and thermal showers.

Ceramique Internationale worked alongside CS Hotels, the owner’s management team, and with hotel and leisure interior design experts Curveline Design on the resort’s renovation, specifying tiles from two of Europe’s finest manufacturers – Italian company Casalgrande Padana and Spanish mosaic expert Vidrepur – to be used in the health club and the new loft suites. 

Casalgrande’s Dragon Black tile was selected for the pool surround and on the floors of the wider spa area, with both spaces taking advantage of the tile’s Grip finish, which provides anti-slip qualities. 

The Italian manufacturer’s large-format Loft Nero 600x600mm tile was also chosen for the bathroom floors of the resort’s new suites, accompanied by Vidrepur’s Aura Black tile, to create a feature wall within the shower area. 

David Longbottom, Specification Sales Manager at Ceramique Internationale, said: “Our long-term working partnership with Curveline means we’ve had the opportunity to work on some of the countries finest resorts and hotels, and Formby Hall is the latest one. We recognised that a project of this stature required the highest quality tiles so we used our contacts at some of Europe’s finest manufacturers to source them, and the whole team is overjoyed with the finished look.”
