I was privileged enough to stay at Grail Springs for 21 days and I still have one night to go. After all that time it is incredibly difficult to leave. The whole experience has been like summer camp - but better! I took part in many activities and they are all wonderful.
Spa: I had Reiki (done by both Monica and Jason) and both were phenomenal. I had massages by Lisa and Jason (yes, the same one who did Reiki). Both of them were incredible. I had a chakra reading by Monica (the same who did Reiki) and it was incredibly informative. Thank you to all of you.
Yoga classes were led by Tanya, Eva and Jason (the same that did Reiki and the massage - he's multi-talented) and were wonderful. Thanks so much.
I also went horse-back riding (numerous times) not only because the horses are beautiful but because Richard, "The Horse Whisperer" is incredibly kind, interesting and very talented. Thank you more than you will ever know.
I got to meet Madeline, the beautiful founder of the Grail, several times (she's around a LOT) and her great dogs. Thank you so much, Madeline.
The room I was in, Room 9, is gorgeous. It's spacious, bright and has a balcony overlooking the lake.
The food was a labour of love. Tomoko is very talented and extremely kind.
The house-cleaning staff, the front desk staff and the dining room staff are top notch. Wonderful people who would go to any lengths for you.
The setting is beautiful as are the people. Thank you so much to all of you! I'm already making plans to return next year!
