Over the past few years, I've been going through various health issues and was looking for a wellness resort to help repair & rejuvenate me. Grail Springs was recommended to me by my RMT as he's had clients that raved about how Grail Springs was "life transforming" & "magical" (similar to some reviews I've read here on Tripadvisor). So my... More

I was told to visit Grail Springs, as I am the assistant of a business consultant who had nothing but amazing things to say, amongst the various services done. More importantly, my friend/colleague was asked to observe and give an overview of the property, services, staff, operations, functions, store, rooms,food service, and meal choices personally by Madeleine Marentette, the founder....

This was my second time going to Grail Springs, but this time I brought my husband with me. I loved the classes, yoga, saunas, guest speakers, meals and outdoor hikes. You get to meet wonderful and interesting people. The first time I went, I was alone and it was an amazing experience. I felt revitalized, calm and like I could... More

I recently stayed in one of Grail Springs "Eco-Tabins". Have you ever gone camping in a quiet remote setting and loved the sights, sounds, smells and feel of nature all around you and thought, "I wish I had a comfortable bed to sleep on and then this would be just perfect"? Grail Springs has created such an experience. As an... More

To start off with, I had a wonderful time at Grail Springs and definitely met my objective of disconnecting from the world, recharging, practicing mindfulness, and reconnecting with myself. The setting is lovely and I enjoyed what they had to offer, including speakers, films, canoeing on the lake, and yoga. HOWEVER, for a resort in this price range, there were... More

After 10 days at Grail Springs, I no longer feel so stressed, my pain has been drastically reduced, my IBS is virtually... More
