The multi-million pound luxury spa is the first UK venture for Ireland's Monart Destination Spa, owned by the family run Griffin Group. Designed to incorporate the company's ethos of creating an environment where guests can truly rest, relax and rejuvenate, Monart features a thermal suite comprising a hydrotherapy pool and thermal spaces.

We have researched the very best in traditional techniques combined with state-of-the-art technologies to give our guests a health and wellbeing enhancing experience.”

Pevonia has also developed its ‘Monart Total Escape Signature' massage exclusively for the location, which incorporates products rich in copper and natural marine magnesium for nourished, toned and radiant skin.
