Amchara is a great place to reboot and kick-start your health and wellbeing, a first step towards looking after yourself better. The front of house staff are very knowledgeable and welcoming, they really make a point of tailoring the programme for your stay to suit your real needs and make you feel at home. I would highly recommend Amchara to... More

I booked into Amchara unsure what to expect. I arrived weary after a busy summer and exhausting work & travel schedule. I was stressed, overweight and feeling a little down. I had booked into the Mastersuite or Rolica, the rooms are named after Wellingtons Battles. I am glad I did, it was a lovely large room, traditionally furnished with amazing... More

I had a wonderful experience at Amchara. A friend had recommended it, and my intention was to have a relaxing break for a week before starting a new job. I saw on their website that they specialize in rheumatoid arthritis, and as I have had this condition since 2008, I figured time here and in the sunshine would be good... More

My main advice is: when you're booking, find out how many people will be staying when you're there, and who will be working when you're there (the staff rotate on a weekly basis, I think every Friday). Because it's a much better experience if there are fewer people staying there and you have particularly nice staff working. We had two... More

Amchara is the perfect place to relax, situated in a tranquil setting. The facilities are not 5 star but the staff and the food make up for that 10 times over. What I like most is that it is not a strict boot camp, everyone is treated individually and your detox is styled to your needs. The staff are so... More
