I had a wonderful stay at Golden Door Elysia on the 5 day program. It is the perfect mix of relaxation, physical exercise and spiritual healing.
I was a bit worried initially about the no alcohol, salt, sugar, meat and caffeine....but I walked away at the end of the week feeling better than I have in years! Back home, I am energised and continuing with my new healthy way of life.
The treatments at the spa are fantastic; in particular the facials, hot stone massages and the mud moor bath.
There are many different activities you can choose to try, there is no better way to start the day than tai chi at sunrise overlooking the hunter! The trainers are approachable and know their stuff.
There are also lots of interesting seminars that you can take part in. I went alone, and found the experience to be excellent. I believe the trip was good value for money, with all meals, snacks and activities included. You have the option of upgrading spa treatments at an extra cost.
If you are looking to get back on track in your life with your health, are looking for some serious relaxation, or are looking to try some new things then Golden Door is the place to go!
