Quite simply, the best thing about Phuket Cleanse is that it works. If you want a holiday where you can learn good eating habits, regain copious amounts of energy, learn to love exercising, and have happiness creep up on you because you just feel so darn good, then this is the place for you. ve long since been a fan of a holiday where I return a better me. I've been to Camp Eden, The Golden Door, and other fasting retreats around Phuket. So believe me when I say that Phuket Cleanse is an amazing place. The knowledge with which the detox program is constructed is cutting edge and based completely on experience and science. You will not feel hungry or lethargic!
This would be a great place for anyone who has an addiction to give up or wants to reconnect with her/his body and just feel happy in her/his skin. Although I went there as a fit, healthy person, I still lost fat, gained muscle, and went home thinner and more radiant. I have been home for months now and have still kept off the 6 kg I lost.
I actually lost another 2 at home, sticking to the raw food; so 8 kg in total. In a nutshell, you eat super delicious raw food meals (the creative gourmets will blow your mind), do about 3.5 hours of exercise per day, get massaged daily, go to the beach, make new friends and be encompassed by the general bonhomie of Phuket. Melanie and Stanton have built an amazing business that I hope will be there for years to come so I can come back again and again to share this with the people I love.
I just spent nine days at Phuket Cleanse Villa. I wasn't sure of what to expect, but I will be returning next year. The service was amazing! The Thai staff was so kind and always accommodating. The English-speaking staff too helped us tremendously shuttling us from point to point in the local area.
If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, this might not be the right place! While the training was difficult, I lost my weight goal within the first six days. The training sessions were tough but fun... as I recall we participated in Box Fit, Muay Thai, TRX, and other training activities. The Thai trainers are active Muay Thai fighters and are inspiring to watch. We watched one of the trainers in a Muay Thai fighting championship at the arena in Patong. These guys are amazing!
Eating the food was the best part! I'm not a vegetarian, but the food was simply delicious. It was prepared daily—the Thai cooks were great!
The grounds are nice, very clean, and the rooms contemporary. Amazing place to stay!! A steal for the price.

I have to admit, I was pretty skeptical when I first arrived at Phuket Cleanse. I had done other detox programs at home and never had much luck, but I decided to give Phuket Cleanse a try after being referred by a friend.
I did the 30 day detox with the guys from Phuket Cleanse and by the time I finished, I felt like a completely new person. It was without doubt one of the best things I've ever done and an amazing journey of self-discovery. Before I started, I was a total couch potato and although I always had the best intentions to "be healthy," I was forever getting sidelined by burgers, chips, alcohol, and TV. The thought of doing 30 days of exercise, eating a vegan diet, and just the mental discipline involved to pull it off was more than daunting. But the guys at Phuket Cleanse were incredible—the amount of support I got from everyone, from Mel and Stanton right through to the personal trainers and the chefs, helped me get from one day through to the next and as the weight started to drop off (I lost a lot of kilos) they all got so excited at my progress it made me feel like a star. If you're looking to detox, to lose weight, to increase your fitness, or just give yourself a general overhaul, this is by far and away the best place to do it. Not only will you have a whole team behind you every single step of the way who don't just support you but also make it tonnes of fun, but you're in the most beautiful location you could imagine. Absolutely 5 star in every single aspect, I couldn't recommend it more.
Success Story - Menashe
After working in hospitality, and drinking and eating every day for a few months I needed a break. Found Phuket Cleanse, the best thing I have ever done for myself. Great hosts Mel & Stanton, fantastic creative kitchen staff, who look after your every need with a smile. The meals they produce are just incredible, every day is different. I never once had a craving for "regular" food and that's from someone who eats in the restaurant every day. The meals include Sushi, tacos, pumpkin that looks like roast salmon and tastes like nothing you have ever eaten. You start the day with organic juices, including wheatgrass, spirulina & various fruits.
Fun exercise programs during the day: from Muay Thai to English boxing; and many others. Combined with a massage every night makes for a great atmosphere in the villa at the end of each day when we get together for dinner. An amazing vacation for your mind, body & soul. Great cooking classes, saunas, steams and the exercise programs are optional. I rented a bike and went for a 14km ride each morning, which brought my fitness back and it is quiet enough there to ride in safety. Shopping trips, beach, and island excursions are there if you feel like it. It's never boring, always fun, and easy to lose that extra weight in a healthy and welcoming environment.
Organic products including exfoliants, scrubs & body oils which feel so good. I had a birthday while I was there and the girls in the kitchen made the most delicious (raw) cake, complete with candles. It is a really easy program and you will find after just a few days that you will feel and look like a new person. If I managed it then so can you. It might just change the rest of your life.
