The owners of Co. Wexford's Monart Spa are intending to launch a sister venue in the UK in partnership with Duchy of Cornwall, a private estate under the control of the Prince of Wales.
According to The Times, Monart and Duchy have formed a partnership called Poundbury Spa with Dorset-based building firm CG Fry, which is developing a new town known as Poundbury on a 400-acre site owned by Duchy beside Dorchester. A flagship venue named the Royal Pavilion will include 20 luxury apartments and an adjoining spa.
Monart has established a new firm for the UK venture called Monart International, which a filing at the Companies Office states is receiving a loan from the existing Monart business "to enable it to develop and operate a deluxe destination spa facility in the UK."
