I spent five days at the beginning of June, my first visit. It was the perfect combination of detoxing, weight loss 5lbs, sunbathing, walks and great excercise classes. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and returned to the UK feeling really well with a kick start to a healthier life style back home.

I went here to relax, exercise and most importantly to lose weight. I achieved all of these things at obsidian and more. The resort is set in a beautiful location. My room had a double aspect overlooking the vineyards and hills surrounding obsidian. I participated in the organised morning walks, the relaxing yoga, the rebounding which made us all feel... More

I've been to Obsidian twice now and both times were very positive experiences - I get a lot out of my week and I meet some great people. The staff are fantastic and super helpful. The juices and the food is amazing. Enjoy the walks, yoga, rebounding with Marco is hilarious, lovely pool and lounging in the sun. Definitely recommend... More

Obsidian was recommended to me by friends and I must say it lived up to all expectations and beyond. I went for weight loss and fitness, but many go for health problems, detox, or just a chill out. Lots of exercise available , advise and life style planning all included. Do as little or as much as your like. I... More

Obsidian went beyond my expectations! I arrived a little unnerved for a five night stay ... and I can´t wait to go back ... and my wish is that everyone had the opportunity to give it a go! Everyone goes for different reasons .... some people for weightloss, some people for general fitness, others for a detox and destress time-out... More

Obsidian seems to have great reviews, so I was incredibly disappointed when I arrived and found it is really just a glorified weight loss camp. I have an auto immune illness and thought I would be receiving a bit of tailored support for my condition (Lupus) but instead apart from a weigh in when I arrived and at the end... More

I have visited Obsidian twice now and it has revolutionised my lifestyle. Healthy eating, exercise and sunshine is a complete recipe for well being. The staff are friendly, supportive and knowledgeable. It isn't boot camp, it is encouraging and nurturing. I can honestly say I have never felt so well as I have on leaving Obsidian. You can go alone... More

Just returned from a weeks stay. My first ever experience of this type of break. Lovely setting. Very good facilities. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Food /juice wonderful. The fitness and mindset coaches were incredibly helpful and supportive. The beauty salon staff were also excellent. To be honest all the staff we saw on a daily basis - cleaners, grounds... More
