Wow, wow, wow. Is all I can say about the BRAND NEW 5* luxury Monart Day Spa, based in Poundbury on the outskirts of Dorchester.
I was fortunate enough to be invited on the exclusive influencer day to experience the state of the art, destination spa for the day. From beginning to end I felt truly relaxed and rested.
Taking up residence on Queen Mother Square in the Royal Pavilion, the recently opened spa covers the ground floor of this imposing building.
Poundbury is a thriving urban development owned by the Duchy of Cornwall, HRH Prince of Wales, who officially opened the spa in November 2019. Ben Murphy, Estate Director of The Duchy of Cornwall, described the spa as ‘the jewel in the crown’ of Queen Mother Square.*
As my treatment was after lunch I enjoyed 2 blissful hours in the Spa Facilities which include Himalayan Salt Wall Grotto, Coldarium which offers a gentle heat, Solarium, Infra-Red Solarium which offers an individual 20 min targeted amount of Infra-Red which infiltrates to your core. Infinity Hydrotherapy Pool, Experience Showers and Ice Fountain to cool off! Fruit infused waters are available to keep you hydrated throughout your visit.
Special mention goes to the quiet spaces with peacock blue velvet day beds, and ‘hobbit holes’ with peridot velvet waves, a perfect nook to read a book.
Monart Spa provides a quiet haven tucked away from the rush of normal life.
LOCALLY SOURCED FOOD AND DRINK
Special attention can be seen throughout the interiors, the restaurant is no exception. Georgian panelling sits comfortably with plush fabrics and bold prints. Food and Drink Suppliers include Brace of Butchers, Dorset based Langham Wines, plant based sweet treats from Feed the Soul.
I enjoyed an 85 minute LUMAFIRM® LIFT & GLOW FACIAL which was seriously relaxing, I *may* have drifted off once or twice. The treatment showed visible results to my skin immediately and it’s continued to glow ever since.
Sidenote: I suffer with rosacea ever so slightly on my cheeks, so the therapist offered a cold cream alternative instead of heated flannels at the end, as heat can flare up rosacea. Using Prevonia skincare range using natural ingredients.
The therapists are fully trained in draping, making each moment discreet and enjoyable. Each treatment can be tailored to your skin, just ask on booking or speak to your therapist on the day.
The team are also highly trained to tailor treatments for cancer patients, giving much needed peace of mind. And can offer treatments to suit pregnant women too.
