When I first came to Grail Springs, I was incredibly stressed out and tired from, well, life. I was also suffering with chronic pain in most of my body and IBS, in addition to being a type-1 diabetic. After 10 days at Grail Springs, I no longer feel so stressed, my pain has been drastically reduced, my IBS is virtually... More

I first traveled to Grail Springs in October 2012. I had recently relocated to Canada from Australia, and was carrying a lot of stress from the upheaval as well as from the integration in to a new work environment mid-project.

The bed was truly the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on. Menu is vegetarian and not being vegetarians we were concerned that... More

I happened to stumble on Grail Springs while I was searching for retreat places all over North and South America, little did I know there was this magical place right under my nose. I booked a 10 day detox and energize package because I wanted a fresh start for the spring. I can't stress enough that this is not just... More

My husband and I spent a night at Grail Springs while travelling in the fall. This is a health retreat with a wonderful alkaline eating menu. It is not a roadside hotel. It is a very serene and peaceful place set off the main roads in a forest on a lake. The accomodations were 5 star and the staff were... More

We had heard about Grail Springs and decided to pay the big price tag as we all really needed some well deserved healing time. Unfortunately, we were disappointed in our experience. We were... More

It was simply amazing! As a gift from my wife, I was going in with an idea of what to expect. Days before I was saying, I'm too busy to go but it's all set so gotta go! As funny things may sounds...it's when you think you can't do it, or you don't think you need it...well do it cause... More
