I have just returned from a week at the Slimmeria retreat. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Having been a bootcamp queen over the past few years I decided to try something a bit more luxurious and relaxing. I'm in my final year at University so I packed up lots of reading material and work to do in the...

If you are determined to lose weight for a big event, or knock yourself out of a plateau in your own weight loss journey Slimmeria at Hye House is worth considering. The regime is very strict and learning the mantra "It's amazing how much you can do on so little" was perhaps the biggest lesson for me. I lost 12lbs...

Re: Review headed “Focus on Weight Loss, adjust all other expectations….” We would really like to thank our guest for her feedback and we absolutely agree with her that we are definitely a weight loss retreat. It’s brilliant that our guest lost 12 pounds in 6 days which is possible with a strict routine. We are happy that we satisfied...

This is a tough regime, but you will obtain results if you stick to the programme. Not a week for the faint-hearted and take note of the guidance given in advance on how to prepare for your visit - withdrawal of caffeine, junk food etc. This will help you!! Hye House is an a beautiful location but check carefully which...

First of all I will say that after 3 days and 3 nights at Hye House I feel fantastic, better than I have felt for a long time both mentally and physically! However, being completely candid I will also say that on arrival I did not expect this to be the outcome of my trip. Arriving at Hye House I...

In response to “Strict Regime…” We would like to thank our guest for her feedback and her very positive comments. We are pleased that she was looking for “disciplined fitness and a strict eating routine” and that she found it at our retreat. We enjoyed her company very much and value her feedback. This particular booking was offered as a...

Had a pefect weekend at this relaxing home from home with the lovely host Galia, enjoyed an 8 mile walk Saturday morning through muddy fields, ate only vegetables and fruit for 48 hours, and drank only water and enjoyed 5 hours of steam baths, massages and facials in the spa, and left 3.5lbs lighter. Definately recommended to give your healthy...

This week was the hardest of my life, emotionally more than physically. I was expecting luxury with an intense health kick. Instead I got a serious "fat camp". The room was a box far from luxury, miss matched decor and awful pillows.the showers though where great. The diet is hard to stomach on many days but interesting all the same....

And it's been a long while since I've been able to say that about myself.

When Galia says bring walking boots, she means it! This is a tough programme, but not a boot camp....there are many lovely treatments to choose from in the afternoons. Do as Galia says, don't flinch, draw on your unknown inner strength & you'll be THRILLED with the results after a week! I lost 2" off bust... 6 INCHES OFF WAIST...

It works.........if you do. Just spent a lovely week at The Slimmeria Retreat and lost an amazing 14.5 lbs in one week. It was hard work and clearly l had a lot to lose, but if you stick to the very well thought out programme, the results speak for themselves. Galia, the owner, is a hard task driver, who is...

Just spent a week at Slimmeria - lost 5.5kg and 41cms of total measurements. This is not an easy week - but to get these results it couldnt be. Galia the owner and her staff are an inspiration. You exercise all morning, then treats in the spa in the afternoon. I was blessed with great weather and the countryside is...
