Monart Spa, Poundbury
One of the world’s top spas – the 5 star Monart Destination Spa, Ireland – has landed in Dorset.
Located in the grand Royal Pavilion in Queen Mother Square, Poundbury – the perfect town-within-a-town in Dorchester – the Monart Spa is a day spa with an ethos of sustainable health and wellness. Expect traditional techniques and state-of-the-art technology, all wrapped up in one lovely, luxury package.
It’s pretty luxe, with velvet sofas, chandeliers, Art Deco mirrors, embossed wallpapers and original artworks.
There are eight different types of spa experience in the Thermal Suite: Sauna (hot), Salarium (less hot, and humid) and Caldarium (warm and relaxing); an Aroma Steam Room; Polaris Ice Fountain; Himalayan Salt Grotto; an Infra-red Pro cabin for tailored muscular relaxation; and Experience Showers which will take you to Polynesia, the Scottish highlands, Bermuda or the Isles of Scilly.
Take a lazy swim in the infinity pool with hydrotherapy water jets.
Settle on a chaise longue or pop yourself into a relaxation pod in the Bright Relaxation Room.
Chill (or snooze) in the Dark Relaxation Room (with decor that’s more Knightsbridge than Dorset).
All sorts of beauty and wellbeing treatments – manicures and pedicures, facials, massage, wraps, for women, pregnant women, men, as well as manicures and pedicures – using the Pevonia spa range, Zelens anti-aging skincare, Made for Life Organics and Margeret Dabbs London.
Come solo or with a friend for a treatment or two, a half or full day, with lunch and wine. Perfect.
