SPA GODDESS


Vilalara Thalassa Resort pool


JACKIE FRITH, TRAVEL-PA


BEFORE: I’ve got fibromyalgia and I’ve done a lot of research about the condition – it’s a lack of certain things in


your body, such as minerals – so I’m looking forward to getting a more holistic view of my situation. It seems like the kind of holiday that would appeal mostly to women. People are taking a bigger interest in learning how to help themselves, and they’re thinking more about healthier alternatives to medication. I’m particularly looking forward to the juices and making them at home. From the website the resort doesn’t look that big. The treatments seem expensive, but possibly worth it as you’re getting consultations with top quality staff.


DURING: I’ve been impressed by the juices – they’ve all been delicious. I could murder a burger and chips, but I wouldn’t say I’ve felt especially hungry. The resort is a lot bigger than I thought. The spa looks a bit clinical but then again, it is a medi-spa. It’s a beautiful place – the sea view junior suites have amazing views, and I liked that my room was near to the spa. Agents booking this type of package should consider the locations of rooms. The bathrooms are huge, and I also loved the big balconies. It’s perfect for couples and individuals who want to learn more about their own health. I thought it would be mostly women but I’ve seen a few men. I particularly enjoyed my osteopathy session. The osteopath knew so much – not just about osteopathy,but other types of medicine, such as Chinese and Ayurvedic.


AFTER: During my visit I realised how unhealthy I was. I’ve learnt so much about the best things to eat and when, and I understand so much more about potential health issues. For example, I’ve learnt a lot about high cholesterol, and how I can lower it. Since I got back I’ve embarked on a liver detox, and I’ve decided to avoid alcohol for one month. I’ve been getting up earlier and going for walks every day. I’ve also ordered some of the recommended supplements, and have been following the nutritionist’s advice. It was a massive wake-up call for me. It was the quality of the staff that impressed me the most. It’s quite expensive, but when you look at what’s included, it’s good value. This kind of break would suit people who are serious about wanting to change their lifestyle.
