"COULDN’T HAVE BEEN MORE WONDERFUL"
This yoga / pilates detox retreat for over 50s completely turned me around. Julie and Nas are the kindest and most genuine people, with complementary skills which ensure that each guest’s exercise and dietary programme is shaped to their individual needs.
The personal care and attention began when I arrived at the airport to find Nas waiting to greet me and drive me to our base for the week. Situated well out of town and away from the crowds, the accommodation is a stone’s throw from the sea and blissfully peaceful. After talking to me about my needs, Nas tailored a detox diet of fresh juices and salads which were delicious, varied and filling.
Julie’s experience in physiotherapy allowed her to shape the week’s activities so that we could focus on strengthening my weak legs and ankles through simple Pilates exercises. Every day we walked in the sea — an absolute joy as there was no fear of falling.
During the week I not only lost half a stone, but also gained confidence in my myself and my body thanks to Nas and Julie’s reassurance and positivity. I returned home glowing and cannot wait to go back for more!

This has been such an amazing retreat! The place I stayed at was beautiful - the beach literally outside the room and the area had such a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. I did the full 7 days juice cleanse and found it worked wonderfully well - the activities are gentle but effective - walks, yoga, correcting posture and some swimming so it was a lovely balance to have and i enjoyed the fact that nothing felt too regimented. I never felt hungry, just a little tired on the first day which is to be expected during a detox. Everything was delivered to me with a smile and there were a few lessons on how to do the juicing and why it makes a difference. The trips out meant that i got to see the island which has some beautiful sights - the boat trip to the caves and swimming there was a highlight! And I can't stress enough how lovely Nas, Julie and Lee are: very generous with their time, advice, nothing is too much trouble and they are so wonderfully friendly that you feel at ease to ask questions. They are also very practical and the advice they gave was very much grounded in understanding the reality of every day life and how little tweaks can make a big difference. If you are looking for a calming place to get your health back on track or just have a top up, this is the place!

"Amazing week in Zakhintos"
We really enjoyed our stay in Zante and all
The benefits of the detox. Nasos is an incredibly nice and caring person, he made us feel at home and provide us with all we needed and even more. The juice detox was less challenging that we expected thanks to the customized program and the continuos check and adjustments. We could quite easily stick to the program. The yoga teacher is a great professional and excursions were amazing as well. The location is just perfect: simple but comfortable, so close to the sea you can fall asleep listening to the waves sound. The color and quality of the sea is just unbelievable. Nasos was also so kind to walk us through the process of making healthy choices and gave us precious advices that we will take in deep consideration in the future.

"Relax and unwind in Zante"
This break was perfect for me, it provided me the opportunity to reset. I needed the chance to stop and just get back on track / no where better than lying next to the clear waters of Zante and even seen a big turtle swimming nearby! Mother Nature st it’s best!

"You will not be disappointed and your body will thank you! "
Wanted to take a minute to thank and recommend Zantezest.
I researched many cleanse / detox / yoga retreats over the year and I'm soooooo happy I went with these guys. For starters, it was much cheaper then what I found in India, Phuket Thailand, etc... then I also found it be much more family run / less corporate which means there was never an added fee for anything such as airport transfers or activities.
Here's what the package came with:
1. 7 nights of oceanfront accommodations on a popular and amazing island in Greece. From a 6am airport pickup to drop off to wherever as needed.
2. Juice 5 times a day delivered to your your door / lounge chair / hammock.
3. Entire retreat is small, maximum 4-6 people and THATS IT.
4. Daily yoga, tai chi (night time option too!), all completely included and optional at the same time. So many days I woke up not feeling ready for life and slept in, other days I took classes. Everyday you also have options for daily or nightly walks, hikes, beach, etc... one day was a full island tour.
5. Loving small staff. These guys are growing and you can see why when you are here, these guys are truly in alignment with their cause... you can see this in their desire to help you, in their smile, and their newborn baby of 1 month yesterday. Nasos and his wife work their asses off to make sure you're happy and not for themselves but because they really enjoy it. You don't get up at 5am with a smile like that unless it's real!
