I went to Slimmeria twice: for a long "taster" weekend last year and for a five days' stay this February. It was not that much about the weight loss for me as I am size 10, but more a 'fine-tuning' of my life style, energizing, de-stressing and re-charging. This was exactly the result I have got: I came back as...

I have just returned from my second stay at The Slimmeria feeling relaxed, regenerated, and several pounds lighter. I first went to The Slimmeria in February 2012, hoping to shift a couple of pounds, what I experienced was much much deeper than that. Unlike most spas, I’ve been to in the past, The Slimmeria is small, intimate, and has a...

This is a lovely place to do some serious detoxing, lose weight and regain fitness, with guided walks around the local woodlands and coast each morning, daily yoga and keep-fit classes and vegetarian food. Be warned, though, your food intake is closely monitored, so anyone not planning to lose weight would have to phone in advance to discuss this. In...

I have just come back from a fantastic two weeks at the retreat. It provided everything I had hoped for...weight loss, detox, relaxation and increased energy and exercise tolerance. As I doctor I feel happy to say that although the calorie intake is very low, the food is so nutritious that you real feel as though you are doing your...

The focus of this trip for me was all about a 'lifestyle change.' Smoking, caffeine. lethargy, mild depression and the inability to sleep were some of the concerns I wanted to address. I was desperate, lacking discipline and application I knew this trip was not for the faint hearted, however, grim determination on my side, I would do it all...

Just like the last poster, I was the only guy in a group of 11, but it really made not a jot of difference. The guests were all lovely, friendly, extremely pleasant company and a treat to spend time with. If you want to detox, if you want to de-stress, if you want to lose weight - there are many...

Thank you very much Tim for your feedback. We really enjoyed having you with us that week. Once again you have demonstrated that men are willing to take time out from their hectic business lives to de-stress, detox and get fitter. It is reassuring that it’s not just women who want to get fit again, lose some weight and find...

A bit like one of the other reviewers I was a lone man amongst 13 women. I suppose the name of the retreat does not help men choose it, or some women come to that, but you should not be put off. The place is not just about slimming it is a good place to detox and take stock and...

I went to Slimmeria hoping for detox on more than just the physical level. It proved to be that and more. As a group we had a lot of fun. There was a great ‘menu’ of motivation talks, vigorous exercise and healthy meals not to mention walks in the forest, on the sea side and spa treatments! Being a doctor...

Went to Slimmeria not really knowing what to expect. Galia was very welcoming and the house is lovely. It was a tough first three days, but worth sticking it out for. After that I started to feel better than I had for years and the weight just dropped off - I lost 10lb in a week. Galia doesn't take no...
