I went for a ten day juice and body cleanse. I can't recommend enough. I got into my body in a way I never had. I relaxed fully. I cleaned my belly. My bowels (months later now) have never been more regular. The staff is outstanding, the juice is fresh and the grounds are immaculate. Do yourself a favor and... More

Being at Moinhos, doing the cleanse, living there, getting to know the people working there was a true blessing. Not only did we clean our bodies, but our minds, our emotions. The environment was carefully taken care of, the pool had some flies in it sometimes (but if we asked, somebody would remove them haha, so really it wasn´t a... More

I traveled from the United States to attend the juice detox program at Moinhos Velhos in 2001 and in 2015. I cant say enough nice things about the program itself, the beautiful secluded location, the founders and staff and even the people who are attracted to attend. Participation in the program made me feel like a new person by instilling... More

Gorgeous rural retreat, tucked away in a valley of beautiful surroundings, with the smell of eucalyptus, the sun setting, bright fruits and plenty of flowers, its impossible not to feel relaxed here. The Barragem is just a 10 minute walk away, where you can swim in the lake or simply take a walk. The pool area, is for your taking... More

I really loved the experience on the retreat, it was the perfect combination of body mind and spirit for me. If felt inspired and exhilarated when I left. I would like to do a detox at least once a year, and maybe more, the benefits have been wonderful. It has also made me realise the true benefits of fasting and... More

I recently visited Moinhos Velhos in Lagos in August 2014. Not having experienced yoga nor detox in my entire life I was open to what the elements of nature could nurture me with. During my stay I found both Platinum Healing and Moinhos Velhos staff a pleasure to have met. I was absolutely amazed how strong I was in yoga... More

Moinhos Velhos has many positive reviews, this is a new partnership with Platinum Healing who are now running the detox programme. Many of the MV staff are lovely and this review does not reflect on their ability to run a retreat.

Last September I visited Moinhos Velhos for a week to train on the Physiospect unit and relax, see "A Peaceful, Relaxing week in Paradise". This year I returned to do a 10 day Fasting/Detox. Frank, Janni and Anna Korine are truly amazing people that have continued to keep this place functioning like a well oiled machine. I combined the Fasting/Detox... More

I spent another 10 days at Moinhos Velhos after my first trip nearly 9 years ago. Back then my experience was so profound, I wanted every year to return. This time I flew all the way from Australia for the trip as there is nothing nearby me that can rival this place. Janni, Frank and Anna Korine are truly magical... More
