Our health retreat takes a holistic healthy approach to living. We deliver this through our well thought out program, clean diet and pampering massage treatments.

Some of our guests come to escape the rat race and spend some quality time alone. So if you are looking for a boost in your energy levels and simply need a recharge then a Fresh Start health retreat might do you the World of good.

We also see a reduction in fat %, improved fitness and flexibility, increased energy, glowing skin, muscle definition and a greater sense of well-being. It is amazing to see our guests’ transformation and how well their bodies respond to exercise, healthy eating and being out in nature.

The menu is mouth-watering and very nutritious. We do not believe in a starvation diet and our meal plan will provide you with all the calories you need, many of our guests say how full they feel.
