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

I have just had a fantastic week at MOINHOS VELHOS. I took the 7 day programme to make a short holiday at Moinhos Velhos, as well as training on the Physiospect machine. After being taken to my accommodation for the week, a very comfortable wooden cabin (pictured) I was made very welcome and shown around the retreat facilities. MOINHOS VELHOS... More

Tonight is my last night of my two week juice fast at Moinhos Velhos. I feel healthy and energized. I’ve been drinking only juice and vegetable broth for two weeks and I never felt hungry. Moinhos Velhos is the perfect spot for a practical, busy Mom to get two weeks of peace and quiet, give her body a reboot, and... More

Moinhos Velhos is set in one of the most breathtaking nature valleys I have ever seen. The center carries a nice energy, the staff is very helpful and friendly and there are some highly skilled therapists working there which help in making this detoxing retreat a very healing experience. The yoga studio is absolutely beautiful and a pleasure to practice... More

I was here for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. Soon after my arrival, I could really feel the Divine and sacred energies of this place. In terms of location, Moinhos Velhos is in the hillsides of the Algarve, in a beautiful valley, buried in nature. It was so nice to stop every so often and just listen to... More

I stayed at Moinhos Velhos in September 2011 and loved it. I felt really away from it all, surrounded by beautiful gardens, chickens roaming free, the most amazing salt water pool to swim in, a sauna that really helped my detox process and the yoga and therapies were bliss. I lost 4kg during my cleanse and by the end felt... More
