I recently went for a 5 day break to the Golden Door. It was recommended to me by a friend, I didn't realise that places like this actually existed! I have been to a few spas and health centres before but nothing like this. I was pretty burnt out with life and long working hours! However this soon changed. The setting is stunning and oozes nature, which is great for today's busy minds. The food is amazing, the activities are fun and informative and I experienced many firsts at the golden door. My first yoga class, my first Zumba dance class, my first salsa class, tai chi, an introduction to numerology which was more like informative comedy, mindfulness meditation, tennis fit, volleyball and not to mention the soul awakening which I loved. In truth this place teaches you what most of us have forgotten about life, that its fun fun fun even without beer or wine or caffeine! This is something that we innately have as a child but loose the more we are exposed to life's challenges! The GD is Literally food for the mind, body and soul....not to mention I lost 4.3 kgs in five days. Also the GD equips you with the skills you need to lead a more enriched, positive fun filled life. Best money ever spent on ME! Thanks guys, see you next year & every year after that ;-)
