"A GUEST IS A GOD"
"There are quick, medium and slow ways to restore health. All have their advantages and disadvantages. It seemed preferable, at least to me, that if I am going to forego all my treats, in order for my health to be restored, I would rather get it over with quickly." - Dan
NO PLACE LIKE HOME
A favourite retreat, with guests coming from all over the world. There is something comforting about coming to a home, rather than say, a resort. They both offer a fantastic getaway but a homestay has a different quality to it. You are less a stranger and more part of the family. Stefan (above, right), a business CEO, has been coming to see us every year for the last 7 years for personalized detoxes. We are firm friends. A highlight of any stay is our daughter 'Dream' who is happy to put on a show of Thai dance, for guests, complete with traditional costume.
Couples are welcome (Marriage counselling is available!) and we may be able to accommodate a child or two (well-behaved, please). Four adult guests is the maximum we accept, since supporting individualized programs takes a lot of energy and focus. There's an understandable uncertainty about staying with someone you don't know. We do our best to put you at ease. While in southern India, the locals attitude was "A guest is a God". I believe we cannot go wrong adopting the same attitude.
COMFORT & FLEXIBILITY
What about the house, the area and the facilities? The house is comfortable, well appointed, with a private pool, a few located close to the beach. We do not have wheelchair access. If you can make it up a flight of stairs and down again, you are fine. If you do not see a Retreat that suits your needs or timetable, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you. Programs and schedules are very flexible. Whether on a Cancer Recovery, Detox, Diabetes or healing program or just convalescing, if you want to play golf, ride the elephants or go to the beach, we encourage it and adjust activities accordingly. If you wish to be left alone, we respect your wishes. If you desire company, we are there. Everything you might expect at a Retreat, we can provide or procure for you... Thai Traditional Massage, Shirodhara, Sauna, Yoga, Emotional Healing, most alternative therapies and even your own personal trainer!
We are not Doctors and do not 'prescribe' or 'treat' patients. There is no Doctor-Patient relationship. Nor are we a swish Private Clinic where Doctors and nurses are in uniform, everything conducted with clinical precision. For all visitors, you will be our holiday guest and we are providing you with a stress-free place in the sun you can 'retreat' to. We are coaches and facilitators, assisting you with your cleansing (detox), healing or recuperation, while operating in accordance with local statutes. We have a qualified Doctor we can call upon, with public or private hospitals nearby.
