“Golden Door is a complete package - rest, relief, reassurance, resurgence and relaxing! I cannot recommend the entire experience more. I went to try and focus on what the next chapter of my life holds as I move through a transition, and with the help of every single member of staff I have come home with the tools to overcome any challenges that pop up and be ME!”

“To say that Golden Door is life changing would be an understatement. From my very first day on the retreat (I stayed for 7 nights), I felt both at home, at ease, more relaxed and more confident than I have in years… In a matter of days, Golden Door can help you slow down, appreciate the little things, embrace positivity, enable creativity and truly be the best version of yourself. Thank you for one of the best weeks of my life!”

“Having never been to a health retreat before I was a little uncertain but also committed to keep an open mind and try new things. The entire experience was incredible... There is no judgement or fixed philosophy at Golden Door. Activities are entirely voluntary and range from tai chi, yoga and pilates, through the boxing circuits, tennis and gym workouts.... I will be going back!”
