After 3 months of travelling around SE Asia with friends, partying, drinking and stuffing my face with rice and noodles, it was time to check into Phuket Cleanse and do a little detoxing!
On arrival, I was greeted by the tiniest and most talkative person I'd ever met - Nemo. She was so welcoming and friendly; my first taste of how all the staff are. Everybody there wants you to succeed at your goal (whatever that may be) and they support you all the way. I was made to feel special every day. All my concerns (not that there were many) were treated as important and were attended to without delay. PC is a lovely little family and you're made to feel part of it as soon as you get there.
I loved that the retreat provided a holistic service; so not just healthy food and workout sessions, but also the mini 'cookery' sessions, massages, sauna, ice baths and afternoon classes where we learned about getting better sleep and The Perfect Day of Eating…all preparing us for when we come back to our busy lives. I loved that!
If you're going to detox, you might as well do it in an environment where Mel is running around making sure the taste of your soup tastes exactly perfect for YOU. Or one where the nutritionist, David doesn't just stand around telling you to snack on apples instead of chocolate (how sick are we of hearing that little sentence, huh?) - it was so refreshing to learn things from him that have completely changed the way I look at everything in my house and my mindset when I sit down to eat.
So a big thank you to the PC team, including Mark, Andrew, the boys at the gym and those at Kata. I did things in 2 weeks that I'd not normally do in 1 year! I had my ups and downs but I was mostly up and that's due to the amazing and inspiring environment you have created. I wish you all the best in your personal lives and careers. You're all great people and you deserve great things.
