HRH The Prince of Wales has officially opened Monart Destination Spa’s first UK property – The Monart Spa - Poundbury, in Dorset.
Owned by the Griffin Group, the seven treatment room spa has been built on land owned by the Duchy of Cornwall, the estate of HRH The Prince of Wales. The spa is open to all, with no memberships required.
Facilities include a hydrotherapy pool, sanarium and caldarium, as well as a sauna, salt grotto, infrared cabin and aroma steamroom. Experience showers complete the mix.
Joint owner, Liam Anthony Griffin, said: “We’ve researched the very best of traditional techniques, combined with state-of-the-art technologies to give our guests a health and wellbeing-enhancing spa experience.
“We’ve focused on creating an environment of pure relaxation where wellbeing is the centre of everything we do.”
The Monart Spa – Poundbury is partnering with skincare brand Pevonia, which is providing a range of facial and body treatments and associated staff training, as well as its at-home retail line.
Equipment, including Ionto wellness beds, herb tower steamers, hot towel cabis, therapist stools, mag lamps and a skin analyser, has also been provided by Pevonia.
The brand has developed an exclusive 85-minute treatment for the new spa – called Monart Total Escape Signature – using products rich in copper and natural marine magnesium for a facial and top-to-toe massage which focuses on the back, legs, décolleté, shoulders, arms and hands. The treatment costs £120 (US$154, €140).
Pevonia has supplied Monart’s flagship spa in Ireland since it opened in 2005.
