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...

Having decided I needed a boost to help stimulate my needed weight loss, I decided to book into Slimmeria, and whlst expecting this to be mainly female did not expect to be the only male from 11 residents on the week I stayed. However it was a great stimulating and rewarding experience. The exercise regime is more challenging than I...

I returned to this retreat after attending last September for 5 days, this time i stayed for the 4 days but went home the afternoon of the fourth. I chose to re-visit Slimmeria as unfortunately i put on all the weight i lost last year. I am extremely happy i did the few days, i lost 6 pound in total...

I had been contemplating a retreat for sometime, and by a stroke a luck found this little gem called 'Slimmeria' - a fitness, weight-loss and detox retreat all in one. I travelled alone, but ending up spending an entire week with 15 very interesting and lovely people. I wasn't overly overweight at the start, but did feel I could do...

I have visited Slimmeria twice now. The first time I was 5 stone heavier, extremely unhealthy, unhappy and needed to change my life. I left Slimmeria a stone lighter and a changed person. Don't get me wrong, this all sounds great but it is HARD WORK. You need to really want to change your life and gain good results. This...
