An amazing trip - could not imagine more knowledgable or friendly people running a retreat with results. With such a wide range of fitness levels I was nervous but the trainers push you as hard as is needed without losing any positivity. The food is sensational and there is always a positive attitude with other guests who are there for... More

The resort is a total getaway from our busy lives. Food is healthy and delicious and the staff are fantastic. You learn a... More

I recently completed a 28-day stay at the Biggest Loser Retreat. I feel healthier, more grounded, clearer and more focussed than I ever have. My main goals involved letting go of cigarettes and alcohol and the lifestyle that went along with them. I wanted to establish a structured exercise routine that I could commit to, and I also wanted to... More
