Having always been overweight and now diagnosed with type 2 diabetes I was hoping this holiday might help me with both issues and it certainly did. I lost 8 lbs in the week and my blood sugar levels on leaving were down to 5.3. Loved the juices and the morning walk, the scenery and location are truly stunning. Enjoyed the... More

I accompanied my mum on this visit. She suffers from MS and has had a bad year health wise in general. She was looking for some motivation to improve her lifestyle and improve her well-being. I was intrigued enough by Obsidian's description of itself, particularly the notion that one can enjoy exercise and dieting while on holiday! Losing some weight... More

We went as day-guests whilst visiting the area, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wants to get back in tune with their body and relax their mind. There is a varied programme of exercise classes including yoga, circuits, swiss-ball toning, zumba and our favourite - rebounding. We arrived early, in time for breakfast 'juice' and had an... More

Just back from 4th visit to Obsidian - it just gets better each time I visit. I can't say enough about all the staff, well organised and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to Christine, Lesley and all the reception staff for their help. Thanks to Phil for the workout tips, to all the kitchen staff for the fabulous food,... More

Over the years a lot of people I know have visited Obsidian and achieved amazing results, so when I had the opportunity to visit this year, I was very excited but also rather nervous about my visit as I really didn’t know what to expect. I went with the aim to lose some weight but also, after a very difficult... More

'Life-changing' is an over-used expression. However, my experiences during eight days at Obsidian last month have given me an entirely new - and, more importantly, realistic - perspective on my life, health and well-being. I have learned so much, both about myself and about general health and nutrition; am making informed choices, not wild and dramatic promises; am seeing a... More

As a serial retreater I was sceptical when I first booked obsidian as it was relatively cheaper than other retreats and some of the reviews appeared flakey. However having been to obsidian I would go back in a heartbeat. The marketing and website for this retreat does not do it justice or give it the credibility it deserves. In fact... More

My goal was to lose weight and help change my life style of fast food and slobbing out. I needed to sort out this weight that's been piling on and making me miserable!!! I was super nervous about...

I was persuaded by a friend to visit Obsidian. Having been under great pressure at work and by many family commitments, I had put on weight and was exhausted. After a week of juicing (and the slow introduction of a little food at supper on the last two nights) I felt so much better, and lost nearly 7 lbs as... More

My husband and I have just returned from a short stay at Obsidian. In only 3 days my husband lost 5 lbs and I lost 3lbs, we would loved to have stayed for longer to get full benefit from the programme so we will be arranging to go back very soon.
