I was very excited about visiting SHA Wellness Clinic to rejuvenate and energise for a few days in Spain. It's making quite a name for itself and with regular visits from the likes of Kylie Minogue, Simon Cowell and Naomi Campbell, it seems everybody wants to reap the rewards from coming here.
With warm temperatures in Spain still around 23 Celsius in mid-October; I decided to take a short healthy holiday to SHA Wellness Clinic in Spain for a sunny detox retreat.After a smooth journey from the airport to the resort, I was greeted by the friendly staff and given a brief tour of the facilities. I stayed in an expansive Superior Suite which could accommodate two or three people…
I simply don’t have the right words to describe my experience at SHA Wellness Clinic. It’s by far much more than I expected and I cannot fault anything. Everything there is planned, designed and put together with the smallest details in mind. SHA is now part of my yearly plans and I’ll be returning every year. Health and Fitness Travel gave me extra benefits which I wouldn’t have if I booked my Detox directly. A life-changing experience for me.
Visited November 2018
I now understand the reasons why SHA is famous for being the best place in Europe for Detox! The treatments are out of this world and the macrobiotic diet is prepared and served to perfection. I came back home feeling wonderful, pure and fit. Very high-quality facilities, rooms, professionals and location. I’m looking forward to doing the same next year!
Visited September 2017
SHA was beyond my expectations, simply incredible! Health and Fitness Travel and SHA managed to tailor everything to suit my needs, service was impeccable. The fitness programme was phenomenal - my trainer, who I trained all week with, made the trip memorable. He is very experienced and challenged me just enough to make me achieve my goals. Priceless! Not to mention the location, what a stunning destination. I travelled by myself and felt very comfortable with socialising with other people there. It really exceeded my expectations, worth every penny!
Visited June 2017
What an incredible holiday! This is my second time at SHA and now they have a diary slot scheduled on arrival with a planner so you can adapt and change, which I loved. I went for relaxation, sun, good food and excises.I achieved all of these and more! I wish I could have stayed longer. I even had a jacuzzi on my private balcony! Thank you Health and Fitness Travel for making things so easy for me again!
Visited February 2017
We were very impressed with the quality of the staff! They were caring and provided excellent service, on top of being very professional and knowledgeable. There is such a great range of treatments and even the ones sounding a bit different that the normal turned out to be worthwhile. We were interested in losing weight and Health and Fitness Travel understood our needs perfectly, so we will definitely book again
