I have been struggling personally both mentally and physically and really needing to escape my life for a while. My husband gave me this gift to attend "Grail Springs" which for me is a magical place where you can truly put your life on hold and enter into a place full of tranquility, peace and healing. From the moment I... 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

Just got back from a night at Grail Springs with two girlfriends. We were looking for a spa to unwind and do some mindful practice and meditation. 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

I just finished a 5 night stay at Grail Springs and participated in The Light of the Soul retreat with Grail Springs founder Madeleine Marentette. I was under a lot of stress from loss, work and just the hustle and bustle of life. I was completely drained and needed to recharge my batteries... to "fill my cup" so I decided... More

On a friendly invite from my mother, I decided to join her for a weekend at the Grail. I had some doubts about how complete a weekend-length retreat could be, having always preferred longer periods of travel and vacation. Having experienced the Grail, I can gladly say that my beliefs were unfounded. Entering the Grail sets a good tone for... More

I visited the Grail November 2014 by myself. Solo travelling can be difficult and I was worried that I would feel vey alone. Not the case. I met 5 amazing solo women who were supportive, fun, interested to meet me and also sensitive to time alone, which I realized the Grail encourages. The food was 5 star; the staff incredible;...

I was at Grail Springs early October 2014 and had a transformational experience that has totally reshaped my life - in a very peaceful but profound way. Went there stressed out to the max. Left there and retired from my job, ready to start the next phase of my new exciting life. Everything at Grail is geared to wellness and... More
