We spent a week at Slimmeria in September and while it was hard and possibly the longest week of my life, it was worth it for the results. I lost 12.5 lbs and my friend lost 11 lbs. The exercise was challenging but do-able but I personally found the food hardest. So much cabbage! I struggled to eat it all... More

This was my first visit to Slimmeria and I approached it initially with trepidation. After the first day though, all doubts were lost and I was grateful to spend time at Slimmeria with a great group of people enjoying a truly unique experience - wonderful house - sensitively restored and carefully furnished with antiques, wonderful location, wonderful coach/motivator (Gallia), wonderful...

I recently spent 4 days at Slimmeria and to say I was a little apprehensive was an understatement, however, upon arrival I was greeted by Galia the owner who put me at ease and showed me to my beautiful room. From this moment on I felt I was being whisked away from all the troubles of the outside world by... More

Thanks Galia for another great week - lovely treatments and meals, long walks and aerobics and yoga thrown in. My favourite was the belly dancing as I have never tried that before and I really enjoyed it. A great group of people as well - good fun and like-minded: hopefully we will all keep in touch, and I will be... More

Galia has spent years working out a balanced formula for weight loss, diet and exercise that really works! A 7 day stay here is an absolute must for detox, fitness and relaxation. The house is beautiful, the setting tranquil, the walks are fantastic, the exercise/yoga classes are well thought out and the food is very balanced. The spa treatments are... More

After a great time in March on a week's detox at Slimmeria losing over half a stone and gaining in fitness and confidence, quickly followed by another half stone in the months afterwards, I felt I needed to further improve my fitness, health and lose a little more weight. I decided to return to the relaxed and positive environment of... More

I have just spent a week at Slimmeria, Wow what an experience! Can't pretend it was easy, but I was by far the oldest in the group of 20, everyone was so kind and lots of laughs, encouragement, and support. Galia is an inspiration, firm but very supportive, and if you want to lose weight this is the place to... More

I went to slimmeria in March of this year, and thought it would be benefitial to write a review several months on. Many people write immediately on their return home when weight loss is almost guarenteed, its really what happens after this that shows the real benefits or not, of a retreat like Slimmeria. Whilst at Slimmeria i lost 11lbs... More

I was surprised to read the review dated 24 August as my experience of Slimmeria was quite different. My calculation of calories was more like 600 a day and I knew that it was only for a week so I didn’t feel perturbed. I have always believed in occasional de-toxing and fasting – and my beliefs have been reinforced since... More

There's no way I'd recommend this place, I left two days early and as I explained to the owner at the time it was because of how un happy I was with the retreat. The week was marketed as a weight loss programme in a luxury setting. In short it was a militant regime that prayed on the insecurities of... More

We would like to thank our guest for visiting our retreat and we are pleased that she stated that her week was marketed as a “weight loss programme in a luxury setting”. We agree with this and for guests wanting slow weight-loss, we offer a weight management programme. This guest advised that she didn’t have time to check our website... More
