Great location, great energy, great gardens, great staff, great facilities, great juices, great treatments, great yoga, great walks, great weather, great programme, great advice, great room, great results(10 yoga detox programme), great fun. It's not just a physical detox, it's also a spiritual detox and it's hard to put a price on it. The therapists are exceptionally gifted. Many thanks.

Having spent the last 13 years cleansing/fasting in the same resort in Thailand I was both excited and a little bit nervous about going to Moinhos Velhos and trying something 'new'. Safe to say any anxieties I had were completely and truly unfounded. From the minute I arrived with my mum (we were the latest arrivals with all of the...

I went for a ten day juice and body cleanse. I can't recommend enough. I got into my body in a way I never had. I relaxed fully. I cleaned my belly. My bowels (months later now) have never been more regular. The staff is outstanding, the juice is fresh and the grounds are immaculate. Do yourself a favor and...

Being at Moinhos, doing the cleanse, living there, getting to know the people working there was a true blessing. Not only did we clean our bodies, but our minds, our emotions. The environment was carefully taken care of, the pool had some flies in it sometimes (but if we asked, somebody would remove them haha, so really it wasn´t a...

I traveled from the United States to attend the juice detox program at Moinhos Velhos in 2001 and in 2015. I cant say enough nice things about the program itself, the beautiful secluded location, the founders and staff and even the people who are attracted to attend. Participation in the program made me feel like a new person by instilling...

Gorgeous rural retreat, tucked away in a valley of beautiful surroundings, with the smell of eucalyptus, the sun setting, bright fruits and plenty of flowers, its impossible not to feel relaxed here. The Barragem is just a 10 minute walk away, where you can swim in the lake or simply take a walk. The pool area, is for your taking...

I really loved the experience on the retreat, it was the perfect combination of body mind and spirit for me. If felt inspired and exhilarated when I left. I would like to do a detox at least once a year, and maybe more, the benefits have been wonderful. It has also made me realise the true benefits of fasting and...

I recently visited Moinhos Velhos in Lagos in August 2014. Not having experienced yoga nor detox in my entire life I was open to what the elements of nature could nurture me with. During my stay I found both Platinum Healing and Moinhos Velhos staff a pleasure to have met. I was absolutely amazed how strong I was in yoga...

“Go for the mill rooms or shared cottages. These are charming and the more recently refurbished of whats on offer. Ask about towels , we were told to bring additional. Actually we didn't really need them and could actually have travelled with hand luggage if hadn't packed them!”

“The cottages have a pellet stove in addition to the steam heater which is nice if you are coming in the winter months and want a little higher heat. The rooms in the old mill are the most charming, an ancient stone mill that was rescued and turned in to two really neat small rooms.”
