What people say about their retreat
At the end of each detox retreat, many people are keen to share their experiences. Many are striking, some are emotional, but all are authentic and unscripted. All of these video testimonials are recorded at the end of their week's stay with us. Some people prefer to write about their experience and you can read those here.

I came to help Hashimoto's thyroiditis. I felt tired & weak sporadically. But I had a lightness of soul, and a deep happiness for doing something this good for myself.
I'd never done anything like this before, but it was actually, surprisingly easy. Beautiful countryside, went to the beach and swam in the sea.
It is a lovely, tranquil place and we had a great group.
My 3rd retreat with Sura Detox.
I feel fresh, new and ready to start again with all the things I have learned from the most knowledgable, supporting and amazing team.
Liz : I came to get a better relationship with food, but I got so much more.
Wayne : The most helpful for me was the food preparation.
The people are amazing, and they hold such a nurturing space. It is one of the most nourishing things I have ever done.
Sadly I should have come here 3 years ago, but I was seduced by other, more sexy, glam websites. I could have saved years and £££s.
I have had heart problems, a bypass operation, etc. - but blood pressure has been cut by a third this week. I am so grateful for that, and for the new appreciation for my body.
It was a truly transformational week for me around nutrition, food & my emotions, and I feel so much better for it.
A new understanding and perspective has arrived, and I feel full of energy and my mind is clearer than it has ever been.
My 4th retreat here, and I've had another amazing week - just the inspiration I needed.
So much information here, and plenty of space for resting or yoga, plus beautiful treatments.
It has been totally heart centred - I’ve been moved in ways I never expected or explored before.*
I’ve been to many retreats, and this is only one that is truly nurturing, and the space is held so beautifully. *
Things get easy after a few days, and an amazing energy returned that I haven’t felt for years. *
It's all so well presented, profound, and kind. Second to none. The top of their game.*
I came to lose weight but it’s been life-changing instead. It’s been 10 times better than I expected.*
The daily talks have changed my idea of how I go forward from this. And best of all, I feel myself again.*
The level of care stands this place a part from the rest. They’ve perfected what they do.*
Sophie : What makes Sura special is the absolute love & integrity of the team.*
Ade : I’ve reconnected with myself and my relationship with food. *
I was not in a good place when I got here, but I’m back to myself again, and I have a spring in my step. *
I was looking for somewhere authentic, and I can’t describe how much I’ve got out of it. If you want to take care of your entire being, this is the place to come.*
My 2nd visit here & I’ve heard things I didn’t hear before. I’m going away with a new resolve to do things better for longer.*
If you’re not sure where you’re going, if your stuck in a rut, come here, and you’ll go home feeling amazing.*
I feel 10 years younger, completely alive, happy and content. It wasn't as hard as I thought, and it made me realise who I am as a person.*
I came again with low energy, and its done eveything it promises. It's much more than a detox, it refreshes all matters of health and wellbeing.*
I have come out of it with a clear mind, a clear body, and a pretty clear view of where I want to go - which is more than I was expecting !*
I have done 5 other detoxes - and this one knocks all the others out of the water. I’ve got a really deep understanding of what this is really all about.*
I was heading for a burnout.
I'm heading home with a new sense of who I am, with tools to eat better, more healthily & more sustainably !*
My long-term chronic pain has mostly subsided now.
Such an amazing experience - I feel like a changed person.*
I came for a new relationship with food, and to lose weight, which I got. But the main thing was realising how I relate to food & other people.*
I learned much more during this week here at Sura Detox than I did in a whole month-long Ayurvedic retreat in India !*
I was looking for safe space to de-stress, & unload, to nurture me, and learn how to live better.
I found it here.*
Sharon : I’m going away with so much unexpected knowledge
Jo : As an ex-therapist, I can say the massages here were superb, as was the whole retreat.*
I feel lighter and brighter.
This retreat is second to none.
Even my husband enjoyed it !

My 3rd retreat here, an I feel so connected with myself.
Give yourself the best gift - time out of your life.*
6 detoxes elsewhere, and here, my age-old neck problem is 100% better. This is so much more than standard detox.*

Rapped - Sura Detox is the place if you want to stop stuffing food in your face...*
There's plenty to do, but you're not made to do any of it, and to know you're in a safe place makes it all easy.*
I have realised I have always had an impulsive approach to food, and that can change to a conscious approach.*
I was vulnerable and laid bare, but the support from the team is huge. I surpassed goals I didn't realise I had set.*
We asked them to report in Greek ! They certainly seemed to have a lovely time, learned lots and left happy !*
So many activities and great therapies to explore our feelings, etc. The people you meet here are the best.*
The team is so caring and also so genuine, caring for us on so many levels. An amazing experience. No regrets*
My 3rd retreat, and the team held us all together like a family ! I've lost weight of course, but also old ways of being*
I felt the whole team were hugging me 360 degrees the whole time.
I am leaving like a different person.*
Its been amazing and I haven't been hungry once ! I've lost half a stone, but I realise now that wasn't my goal.*
My first fast, and it has been
Come and do it for yourself.*
It wasn't really about the fasting for me. The facilitators make the experience much bigger than that.*
I didn't know this was a fast. It wasn't nearly as scary as I thought. But it was so easy and relaxing.*
My 3rd time; very restful and a respite from my pre-wedding prep. The team are again fantastic and I couldn't recommend it highly enough.*
My 4th retreat, and I've never been let down by this incredible group of people.
The knowledge & treatments are unsurpassable.*

It is so valid to all my problems. It is so simple, and so overlooked.*

I came on this retreat because I had a lot of arthritic inflammation and I'm very happy to say it has gone.
No pain. It's wonderful.*
I have travelled the world doing detoxes, and the level of Dao's information, and the body workers are some of the best I have come across.*
The first time I came with real apprehension, but it was a fantastic experience, and the care that is given by the team is second to none.*
I was fairly sceptical about coming, but I've regained 80 or 90% of my 'mojo', and I leave here energized and feeling good.*
I've lost 12lbs - it really does happen here.
Beyond that, its amazing. they do not exaggerate about anything. There's nothing gimmicky about the retreat.*

I am going home a very happy girl.*
I'm so much calmer about the future, because I know I've got the tools…
I've lost seven pounds, and I just feel I've got my life back.*
This is my 4th Sura retreat.
I can highly recommend it to anybody because I go home feeling fantastic, and I look fantasic.*
What's impressed me the most is the expertise and professionalism of the staff, who are all excellent, and I'm constantly surprised by how much they know.*
I've studied nutrition personally for over twelve years. However Dao's level of knowledge was amazing, and the way he presented it was fantastic.*
