I stay at all of trip advisors #1 reviews globally, and The Golden Door deserves it number 1 ranking. The resort is like no other, and very very classy. They have been doing this for decades and the attention to detail is evident from the second you enter this very private sanctuary. The food from their world class chefs, the...

Imagine being able to escape from your everyday life and thinking only about oneself! Picture yourself surrounded by beautiful gardens, served delicious carefully planned meals and a staff that goes the extra mile to make your experience special. Every evening you receive a "paper fan" listing your personalized program for the following day. Try something new, explore your inner self...

My Godmother and I went to Golden Door for a girl's getaway and we both agreed, it was the best week ever. The staff is amazing, catering to your every need. The rooms are luxurious, even providing their skincare and workout clothes(!!). My favorite part were the in room massages and the incredible meals. We even ate one dinner family...

Through the golden door to an island of calm and serenity. The attentive staff smooths any problems with seamless anticipation. Each and every staff person I encountered sincerely cared that I was doing well from the morning server who brought my breakfast to the personal fitness instructor who stayed longer with me to make sure I understood the program she...

After 7 days at the golden door, you'll feel as though you've hit the reset button on your physical and mental health. It's a great place to either kick start your exercise routine or take your physical health to the next level. You can spend time maximizing your fitness and weight loss, or you can choose to spa and relax...

A magical space. As a very active person in my early 40s, I had expectations of just eating healthy and relaxing and... probably getting bored. Was I wrong. This place is very special. The women that come are vibrant, funny and accomplished- yet very down to earth. The staff is simply amazing - I have rarely seen such a good...

The Golden Door is fabulous. From the time you enter the golden door to your departure the stay is perfect. What a wonderful retreat where you work your body and mind and you are pampered as well. So many options for things to do from self defense to kick boxing to Tai Chi to learn to swim, and all the...

Mind, Body, Spirit Rejuvenation. This is not just a spa, it is a retreat. At the Door, one focuses on the areas that too often are left for another day. One remembers to care for oneself, to eat well (and deliciously), stretch and exercise ones physical body, and mindfully focus on the inner self. The Golden Door is world class...

“Expensive, but worth every penny. If you can get in shape prior to your visit, you can do more of the many activities and classes.”

“everyone seemed to feel "their" room was best. Some like to away from the main area. I liked being closer to everything.”

“All guests assigned a single room. How close do you want to be to the center of activity? Is mobility an issue? Or is peace and tranquility your goal? You can discuss this with the staff prior to your visit.”

“Let the reservations manager know if you like a light-filled room or a cozy darker room because they have both. Also, let them know if you want to be in the middle of things or a little bit apart from the bustle. Nothing is so far away but if you like to roll out of bed and into the spa, the B rooms are more for you.”
