Dorset’s newest luxury spa has opened in Royal Pavilion.

Based in the heart of Queen Mother Square, the Monart Spa Poundbury luxury day spa will provide clients with a restful retreat in its world-class thermal suite.

The new spa follows the success of its five-star luxury Monart Spa in County Wexford, Ireland. As a joint venture with the Duchy of Cornwall, the independent family business will be open six days a weekend will offer day, half day, evening packages and treatment only.

Monart Spa’s Director Liam Anthony Griffin said: “We are thrilled and honoured to be working in partnership with the Duchy of Cornwall and C.G Fry and Son on the development of Monart Spa – Poundbury.

“Monart is all about bringing health and wellbeing to the community, offering a sanctuary to de-stress and forget about the pressures of everyday life. Our guests can treat themselves to half and full day packages of spa treatments delivered by our expert therapists, as well as a world class thermal suite including caldarium, sauna, salt grotto, infrared pro cabin, aroma steam rooms and stunning hydrotherapy pool.  With no membership required, we offer guests a rejuvenating and therapeutic retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life.”

The state-of-the-art day spa is the first UK venture for multi award-winning Monart Destination Spa, Ireland, who have been named as ‘one of the top 10 spas in the world,’ for their retreat in County Wexford, near Dublin.

The spa features a thermal suite, complete with a sanarium, salt grotto, aroma steam room as well as a hydrotherapy pool and more than 30 elite treatments.

Ben Murphy, Estate Director for the Duchy of Cornwall said: “The launch of Monart Spa marks a significant milestone in the Duchy’s investment in Poundbury and a key highlight for its luxury apartments at Royal Pavilion in Queen Mother Square, the central hub and heart of Poundbury.

“Monart Spa will offer a truly superb venue, appealing to both the local community and attracting new guests from across Dorset and much further afield. Day spa visitors will offer a great opportunity to the other 200 independent businesses, shops, cafes and restaurants that make Poundbury such a compelling place to live, work and visit.”
