My husband and I have just returned from Thailand, having stayed at the Spa Resort Koh Chang for the last part of our holiday.
We went on their 9 night/10 day 'Clean Me Out Programme' (which consisted of pre-cleanse of eating raw vegetables/fruit, then the 7 day fasting programme and finally post detox; where we were back on the raw veg/fruit.)
I was a bit apprehensive about the detox programme but hey I got through it and lost a few pounds - (i'm happy to share more info. about the programme if you want to contact me).
As the hotel is built in a jungle, there were ants in our room, which freaked me out, we informed the reception staff who assured us the cleaners would treat the room - it seemed to help, but the odd few would still manage to get in - but as i was reminded, we were in a jungle!!
We also felt the duvet and pillows were smelling of damp/mould, but again we informed reception and this was remedied immediately.
The staff were AMAZING, really really friendly and helpful. A special thanks to Ni and So in the reception and of course Lek, Ben and Toie who gave us great massages everyday as well as making our stay memorable!
We did yoga and meditation on a daily basis with a really nice guy called Cliff (who lives at the resort and can help with any questions to do with the fasting etc) - he was a brilliant source of knowledge to get us thorugh any problems we were having during the detox. He's leaving soon, which will be a great shame as he does such a fab job, but his new replacement; Andy who we also had the pleasure of meeting is also great.
As we were on the fasting programme, we didn't get to try the food on the main menus, so can't comment on that, but the raw veg salads etc were good and as ever really nice staff in the restaurant who looked after us on a daily basis; Tong, Kip and Fon.
The hotel has a good selection of dvd's which are available to the guests as there's nothing to do in the evenings, a lot of them are badly scratched so you don't get to see the whole movie, which is frustrating as you've watched half of it and then the other half is damaged! So as a tip, bring a few with you!!
There are daily trips to the different beaches in the area, my husband and I weren't fussed about going as we had been to Koh Phi Phi and Krabi prior to arriving in Koh Chang, so were beached out - we went on one trip towards the end of our detox week but weren't impressed as all the shops were selling things which you could buy cheaper in Bangkok, we never stepped foot on the beach as it was waaaay too hot!
I'd recommend the detox programme at the resort because it gives you a chance to think about your lifestyle/what you eat etc i've certainly learnt a lot about the junk i've been eating prior to the programme and know what I won't be eating having returned home! (let's hope I can stick to my new healthy eating plan!!)
