The Golden Door is the place I can go to rejuvenate my training routine, clean out my body of toxins, set new goals, connect with my inner self and be pampered. Their daily regimen is perfect to get you moving, stretch you out of your comfort zone (if you so desire) and to help you reconnect with what's important for your physical and mental health. It's such a grounding experience. I have been their four times and will go again in January. It's something to look forward to each year. More...

The Golden Door is a place like no other! Yes, there is actually a "Golden Door" and when you enter it you are transported into a world of wellness on every level. The grounds are spectacular with ancient lanterns imported over many years from Japan set in beautifully manicured lawns, reminiscent of a genuine Japanese Ryokan. Accommodations are comfortable and provide a place of rest after a busy day. Bathroom are generously stocked with every Golden Door product you can imagine.||There is so much to do and everything is good for you. The variety of hikes, fitness classes and restorative treatments is incredible. The food is healthy and delicious with a professional team of staff ready to take care of any dietary restrictions. ||While this is important, what truly differentiates the Golden Door is the very high level of specialized and personalized service from a team of high quality individuals who genuinely care about giving their guests a time to remember. ||I went 19 years ago to the Golden Door and it changed my life. I can confidently say that this second visit will change my life once again. Life on the other side of the Door is tough but the staff give practical guidelines to take pieces of the Golden Door and implement them real time. ||I certainly will not wait another 19 years to go back , in fact the only way I was able to leave was to make a reservation for next year. What a transformative experience! More...

Although many of the guests travel with friends or family, many guests are there alone. You won’t feel alone for long. The guests let the usual social conventions drop for their visit. There’s a sense of inclusion, you’re part of a group. I’m an introvert, it’s hard for me to find that. The gardens, rooms, healthy food and wide variety of exercise classes are all fabulous. I hope to go twice a year. More...

Dawn walk, breakfast in your room, Tai Chi, morning break, gym class, aqua fit||and that’s all before a delicious, healthy lunch by the pool area. Wow then I’ve got a session in the Bath House, followed by a facial then back to my room for a heavenly, daily massage. After canapés, join some of the friends I have made for dinner. Skipping the cookery demo/interesting guest talk etc for an amazing WatSu water therapy in the secluded hillside pool. Start in evening sunshine and finish in star light. Sleep well in my large, oriental inspired room. Wake refreshed for another fantastic day at the legendary Golden Door Spa. It’s pricey, especially if you, like me come all the way from the U.K., but what a brilliant investment in your future health, fitness and general well-being. Saving up to return! More...

This is the second time I have visited the Golden Door. Although the last time was 20 years ago, it hasn't changed that much! The Door is a place people visit when they need to recalibrate, or they need some mind, body healing (or maybe they just want to relax). I think the Door has a way of helping guests turn off all of life's stressors and helping them heal and reflect. I noticed that many guests there were in some sort of transition and the Door is a great place to go if you need some time to reflect, heal, etc. I also think the staff has a real knack for taking care of people, and they spoil you with daily massages, treatments, etc. It isn't fancy - very Japanese zen - but most people know that and pick the Door for the tranquility and peace it provides. Also, the chef is AWESOME and you will appreciate how great the food is. I did lose 5 pounds while I was there and felt great because was eating so clean. I also think this is a great place to visit if you are travelling alone and just want some downtime to reflect, hike, and feel great. My only wish is that they had more places to sit and relax around the beautiful Japanese gardens. More...

What's not to love about The Golden Door? I took advantage of the early morning hikes nearly everyday. The food is wholesome, organic and always gourmet. I started the week nervous that the 1200 calorie diet suggested to me by my trainer wasn't going be enough, but it was just right. The staff were kind and respectful across the board from housekeeping to estheticians to kitchen staff to teachers, spirit guides and masseuses. Your relaxation and comfort is their highest priority. The yoga, tai chi and exercise classes were excellent. I especially loved the mornin stretch classes to prime my body for the activities to follow. This place is top notch. I hope to return someday soon. More...
