I lost 18.5 lbs in two weeks and four inches off my waist. My limbs and joints are all working much better and my skin and eyes look great. I highly recommend both the juice program and the delicious vegan food at Obsidian. Try Keiren's chickpea bread and ask Julia for extra Ginger in your juices. Say hi to Daniel... More

I went with my husband. We went to start a new way of life with a change of diet and exercise. We did detox from tea, coffee and processed foods before we went which we were pleased about as we didn't have to go through withdrawal in the first 3 days. We have been back 3 weeks and I am... More

Short version - if you are out of shape, physically, mentally or both; if you really want to do something to turn your health - and life - around; then spending at least a week at the Retreat could be the best thing you could ever do. Long version - I am a 59 years old business man who for... More

I spent a week at Obsidian in July and it was the best decision this year. This was an almost perfect balance of rest, relaxation education and detox. Staff were interested in each individual from the early morning walk where even the slowest were supported and accompanied to the evening Dru yoga on the lawn as the sun was setting.... More

The main word to describe my Obsidian experience would be: disappointing. I had such high hopes. As someone with a chronic illness & a moderate income, I spent months researching for the right choice, and hoped that Obsidian would tick all the boxes. Like everybody else that I met whilst there, I started my obsidian journey with a positive mindset.... More

As you will see from the other reviews giving at the same time and following that review these are not the opinions of Obsidian visitors. Trip advisor have removed this review on three occasions for not complying with its rules or guidelines, but then it keeps re-appearing.

Recently returned from my third visit to Obsidian. Haven't been for a couple of years and things have been tweaked and improved in the meantime. I really appreciated an extra yoga class. I would like to see two each day. Yoga at Obsidian is one of the highlights for me as it is not arduous, more gentle stretching. Yet it... More

Loved it. Absolutely loved it. I got back late Friday night and am pleased to say that, despite a rather large Sunday lunch, I'm still feeling fantastic. I don't really know where to start.....

We booked a stay wanting to do a good healthy detox and reset to a vegan diet. We have followed this diet is part for a couple of years but when you live in Spain it is easy to go astray. One of our friends has visited Obsidian and recommended a visit. We are glad we did. While the resort... More

Thank you for taking the time to review.
