My five days at Golden Door Elysia was more than I could have hoped for. Rejuvenating, relaxing, inspiring and so much more. From the location(breathtaking views), accommodation (spacious, comfortable and well appointed villas), and food(nourishing and delicious), to the facilities (top class), activities (varied and fun), and staff(friendly and attentive), there is virtually nothing to criticise. I thoroughly recommend a... More

The staff were very professional and enthusiastic 24/7, I really don,t know how they keep up such momentum. Easy place to go as... More

My friends and I went to the Spa last weekend and had an amazing time. We all had treatments which were outstanding. My massage was with Cara, however, I found out the day before I was pregant so Cara tailored a head massage especially for me (I was due to have a deep tissue massage). She was brilliant about changing... More

An amazing week with life-changing results! Not only fabulous accommodation, food, seminars, activity, massages and pampering but a fantastic team who could motivationally move mountains! I loved every minute and hope to go for fourth visit next year.

I visited for a 5 day stay in January and found the staff enthusiastic and fun. Discovered some new ways of feeling good and getting fit- especially the Deep Water Running classes which were great and the Salsa dancing class. Food was tasty and actually bigger quantities than I would normally eat at home but much more nutritious. Evening activities... More
