A magical space. As a very active person in my early 40s, I had expectations of just eating healthy and relaxing and... probably getting bored. Was I wrong. This place is very special. The women that come are vibrant, funny and accomplished- yet very down to earth. The staff is simply amazing - I have rarely seen such a good... More

The Golden Door is fabulous. From the time you enter the golden door to your departure the stay is perfect. What a wonderful retreat where you work your body and mind and you are pampered as well. So many options for things to do from self defense to kick boxing to Tai Chi to learn to swim, and all the... More

Mind, Body, Spirit Rejuvenation. This is not just a spa, it is a retreat. At the Door, one focuses on the areas that too often are left for another day. One remembers to care for oneself, to eat well (and deliciously), stretch and exercise ones physical body, and mindfully focus on the inner self. The Golden Door is world class... More

I recently spent a week at the Golden Door and had the most amazing experience of any spa retreat I have ever been to. Forget We Care forget them all this is IT! The staff are incredibly friendly and the trainers have an energy that never leaves them whether they are teaching Tai chi or kickboxing. The great thing about... More

What a life-affirming experience-my second. Even during enjoyable Food and Wine week, I lost weight due to the numerous interesting fitness options. Many opportunities for inner work through T'ai ch, yoga and meditation. Staff couldn't be nicer, and kitchen prepares wonderful quality and quantity of food. Zen-like grounds add to the calming experience. Small number of guests create opportunities for... More

The Golden Door Spa was opened in 1958 and it's fair to say that its founder, Deborah Szekely, practically invented the modern spa. With a zen-like atmosphere that is rooted in Japanese culture -- and a well maintained property to match -- the first thing one wants to do on arrival is exhale. But, as other writers have noted, this... More

Just spent a week at 'the Door.' To say it was life changing is an understatement. I went for some rest/relaxation and to focus on fitness and inner focus.... I accomplished my goal many times over.... and i learned so much during my stay! From the minute you arrive to the second you leave, the experience is truly amazing. ALL... More

This is so much more than some resort spa. Ive been to almost every spa in the US and this is unlike any other. It's a great revitalizing, nurturing experience. Staff are fabulous and the ratio to guests is unprecedented. It's a great place for any woman .. From executives to moms...if you want to feel great and have fun... More
