    Visited October 2015

    I have recently visited Golden Door for the ninth time in ten years. This place never disappoints. From the caring, nurturing and professional and highly skilled staff, to the views, ambience and the accommodation, Golden Door Elysia is a magical place to be. What a beautiful setting to relax and just 'be'. A place you can truly be yourself with absolutely no pressure to meet anybody's expectations. You can choose to be busy with all the informative and motivational talks and fun activities, or you can just relax and take in the surrounds and be pampered. And to top it off, amazing food prepared by the awesome kitchen team. 

    I think of the Golden Door at some point every day and it is my favourite destination to rest, restore and keep motivated for optimal health and wellness, not to mention value for money. My partner is hooked too after his first visit! Its easy to see why it has won the award for the 'Best Australian Health and Wellness property'. Looking forward to visit number ten! Bring it on!

    Visited September 2015

    This was my first trip to Golden Door and will not be my last. I plan on making it an annual event. All the facilities - room, spa, gyms, pools, courts, main building, etc. are outstanding. What really makes the retreat are the staff - they are professional, courteous, fun and make you feel so at home the whole time you are there. My wife and I spent a week there and by the sixth day I was aching in every muscle after morning tai chi, deep water running, stretch class, cardio box, cardio tennis, volleyball, table tennis, indoor hockey, swimming and walking (plus loads of other options that I didn't manage to get to). 

    Pain - but that great pain that you get after great workouts! There were also health seminars, spa treatments, fun events and did I mention the food? David, the chef, produces delicious healthy meals every day, plus runs a cooking class which is great fun too. Criticisms? I couldn't think of one. Thanks team for probably the best break that we've had in years. We can't wait for next year...
