This is a place to have absolute peace. I went last July and did not even wait one year to return. The staff help you with full and good intentions. The food is delicious and the morning hikes spectacular. The spa owns the property where you hike so the trails are well kept. Hiking tread on your shoes is very...

What's not to love about The Golden Door? I took advantage of the early morning hikes nearly everyday. The food is wholesome, organic and always gourmet. I started the week nervous that the 1200 calorie diet suggested to me by my trainer wasn't going be enough, but it was just right. The staff were kind and respectful across the board...

I stay at all of trip advisors #1 reviews globally, and The Golden Door deserves it number 1 ranking. The resort is like no other, and very very classy. They have been doing this for decades and the attention to detail is evident from the second you enter this very private sanctuary. The food from their world class chefs, the...

Imagine being able to escape from your everyday life and thinking only about oneself! Picture yourself surrounded by beautiful gardens, served delicious carefully planned meals and a staff that goes the extra mile to make your experience special. Every evening you receive a "paper fan" listing your personalized program for the following day. Try something new, explore your inner self...

My Godmother and I went to Golden Door for a girl's getaway and we both agreed, it was the best week ever. The staff is amazing, catering to your every need. The rooms are luxurious, even providing their skincare and workout clothes(!!). My favorite part were the in room massages and the incredible meals. We even ate one dinner family...

Through the golden door to an island of calm and serenity. The attentive staff smooths any problems with seamless anticipation. Each and every staff person I encountered sincerely cared that I was doing well from the morning server who brought my breakfast to the personal fitness instructor who stayed longer with me to make sure I understood the program she...

After 7 days at the golden door, you'll feel as though you've hit the reset button on your physical and mental health. It's a great place to either kick start your exercise routine or take your physical health to the next level. You can spend time maximizing your fitness and weight loss, or you can choose to spa and relax...

Encouraging to reach a little farther...

A magical space. As a very active person in my early 40s, I had expectations of just eating healthy and relaxing and... probably getting bored. Was I wrong. This place is very special. The women that come are vibrant, funny and accomplished- yet very down to earth. The staff is simply amazing - I have rarely seen such a good...

“All guests assigned a single room. How close do you want to be to the center of activity? Is mobility an issue? Or is peace and tranquility your goal? You can discuss this with the staff prior to your visit.”

“Let the reservations manager know if you like a light-filled room or a cozy darker room because they have both. Also, let them know if you want to be in the middle of things or a little bit apart from the bustle. Nothing is so far away but if you like to roll out of bed and into the spa, the B rooms are more for you.”
