Tucked away in the bustling centre of Newport is an unexpected oasis of tranquillity that more and more people have been discovering since it re-opened just over a year ago.

Zen spa is a spacious health and beauty retreat that was extensively re-furbished by new owner Claire Frampton before re-opening last April.

Claire, who is experienced in a range of therapies, works alongside a trusted team of fellow therapists, and says their aim is to provide a 5-star experience for clients, in a calming and welcoming environment.

As well as a range of popular one-off treatments such as manicure and pedicure, facials and lash extensions, the spa also offers ultra-relaxing luxury treatments such as body scrubs and massages, as well as tailor-made pamper packages.  It also has a tanning salon offering both sunbeds and spray tanning treatments.

First-time visitors to the spa are often surprised by just how spacious it is, with its six treatment rooms of varying size, as well as two airy waiting areas..

“We are a small friendly team” says Claire, “and aim to provide a professional but welcoming atmosphere”
