The emphasis here is to wind down, relax, get pampered, have healthy and tasty food, wine, coffee....and just chill. Having the massages as soon as we walked in helped us get into this zone quickly.... You can chill by he pool or by the fire, depending on the season.... Great therapists!!!! If you need a circuit breaker from day to... More

We hired the whole house for two nights for 6 couples (+3 children) as our wedding was on the grounds. Everything was perfect. Weddings can be stressful, but walking into Authenticity you couldn't help but relax. The grounds were beautifully presented, a photographers dream. Staff were friendly, helpful and caring, making us feel at home during our stay, and the... More

But there are definitely non chemical ways to clean - white... More

I had no expectations coming to Authenticity except having some space and time for myself, lose a few toxins and indulge in pamper and good food. I could not have come to a better place. On entering "The House" I instantly felt like stepping into a different world. There is an immediate sense of calm and peace. My large room... More

A very relaxing stay, well looked after by the staff and the beauty treatments and massage are wonderful. The best part of the stay is the amazing food. The cafe at Authenticity serves vegetarian meals which will please the taste buds of even the biggest meat eater. Wonderful food and great organic wine list. Even if you don't stay overnight...

The food is natural and holistic vegetarian and I value the freshness and always come back feeling positive,... More

OK - I get the concept. Sadly the experience falls short on the value side of things. Let's keep it simple by saying that I would agree with many of the poor reviews that have already been posted. Add to this, they lost our booking; even though we had everything confirmed in writing weeks in advance. Watch out for breakfast... More
