I booked a 2 night stay solo, for my 40th birthday. I didn't want the big party, but some time to really spoil myself and as I never been to a Spa, I went with a friends suggestion and booked Monart. My stay exceeded anything I had expected. On my arrival, my car was parked for me and my bags brought to my room as, the amazingly professional but yet down to earth, Michelle told me anything I needed to know and showed me to my gorgeous room, facing the pond as my friend had suggested I ask for.
The Spa was beutiful. One main room with 8 little adjoining spa rooms and an outdoor sauna (my fave). On the wall is an explanation of the rooms and in what order to use them, finish off with a foot bath in the main room and go find the dark relaxation room! ( the spa staff didn't tell me of this room so I nearly missed it) It's so nice to rest there after all the tiring pampering :) As other reviewers have mentioned: there is no jacuzzi and I did miss one aswell, but I think it's hygienic reasons they choose not to have one.
I have never had a pedicure so I booked one in, and although I was cringing a bit about the price (70) I ended up loving it. Edel, who worked her magic on my fossies, was so knowledgeable in all things beauty! She gave me lots of hints and trader tips and I just loved her easy manner! I would have bought everything she used had I had the funds!
The food was good, not my usual kind of taste as I am veggie and experiment alot with food but there was something there to suit all. A special shout to Anne who served me my breakfast both mornings and brought me my lunch to my room. So sweet and attentive!
I had the best 2 days and I'm so glad I went on my own! I came back glowing :)
The best thing about the whole experience was that I was in my robe for the full 2 days bar an hour in the restaurant. I even wore it for dinner on day 2 in the bar Lounge!
Tips: As expected it's expensive, vso I brought nuts, crackers and that kind of snax. I also brought a bottle of wine.
There is no coffe facilities in the room, no bar(they are loosing money on that I say :) or fridge.
Ask for an extra set of robes and slippers straight away. I used one for my room and loafing about and one set to get wet in the spa. I also had a set of knickers and bra in a zip lock that I put my swimsuit in when I was done, so I could go to the relaxing room straight after without bring in a soggy suit or stark ;)
I downloaded loads of movies beforehand and brought on my iPad.
Do room service for a meal on one day and have it on your balcony!
I did one phonefree day and it added to my sense of relax.
Go, it's great! I'm already saving for my next trip!
