Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I’ve been to several places in different countries hoping to achieve satisfactory results in weight loss. Some proved to be starvation centers-ironically with minimal loss of 1.5 kilograms in ten days, others were fine but the outcome was not up to my expectations still.

A very good friend of mine invited me, and couple of other gentlemen, to go to Phuket’s Paleo weight loss retreat. At the beginning, I thought this is just another attempt to be added to the list and the only motivation I had was the company. In all honesty, this has changed the minute we reached the villa and here is why:

The Place:
A spotless well structured and well furnished facility that, although provides privacy for each guest; I felt comfort and warmth of being at home. Housekeeping was not only good, but exceeded the standards of some five star hotels in which I have stayed.

The People:
Danielle, the founder/owner, has succeeded in building up a coherent team that does not only contribute to the success of the business, but also to the well being and satisfaction of each individual guest. Each member of the staff had a well defined role that s/he played quietly and efficiently without forgetting the friendly smile they always had. Having said that, staff dedication to, and concentration in whatever they were assigned to do never stop any of them from accommodating guests’ unplanned individual needs/queries-and always with a smile.

Danielle showed up daily to check on the progress each guest has made with his/her weight loss. She also allocated time to spend with us individually or in a group to provide explanations that helped us better understand how Paleo works. This has really helped us accept and interact with the diet and most importantly adopt it as life style-inspiring.

Gypsa was the catalyst and steering power of the daily activities in the villa. Not only that, but she is also the great chef who succeeded in surprising us with each meal we had during our stay-amazing.

Jin; although too quite, but she always smiled whenever asked a question or requested to assist with something. At a moment, I suspected she had the power of being in different places at the same time-dedicated.

Danielle, Gypsa, and Jin made the visit pleasantly unforgettable.

Paleo diet:
When I first learned about the breakfast (bulletproof coffee) I thought to myself; this is going to be another starving experience, but surprisingly I never felt hungry or missed food (although delicious and elegantly presented). Abiding by Danielle’s instructions, and maybe having friends around, was helpful getting through the first few days when our bodies started experiencing impact of Paleo.

Most importantly, this was the first time, ever, I:
1. Reach satisfactory results losing weight
2. Continue with the new diet and adopting it as life style (although cheated couple of times)

Today, I have two of my family members on Paleo diet and enjoying the results.

My visit to Paleo weight Loss Retreat was a complete success, not just because of whatever I wrote here, but so many other factors that I encourage every reader of this review to explore by him/her self.

I visited the Villa recently because I needed a holiday that would give me space to rest from the stresses of life and I wanted to educate myself more about the Paleo lifestyle. Although I was familiar with the concept – I was struggling to make the switch and understand fully what I needed to do to achieve my goals: weighloss, digestive wellness, better sleep patterns and nutritional knowledge.
As a solo traveller it was reassuring to be met at the airport and upon arrival at the beautiful Villa, welcomed by Dani- the owner. Following an informal chat and a thorough explanation of the protocol I had the first of many deep restful sleeps. The personal service and attention to detail continued throughout my stay and I cannot emphasise how much difference this made to the success of the programme. The informal interview at the beginning set out my aims and I was learning new information immediately-A great start! The holiday only improved more from there. Each day was structured yet all activities were optional. I tried to do everything, the range of activities were incredible- yoga, pilates, strength & conditioning,kayaking to name a few-even Muay Thai-try it it’s so much fun!! In addition I was fortunate enough to take a day-trip fishing and salsa dancing lessons. I would never have had the energy to do so much normally but this lifestyle(not a diet) just boosts your energy so much it is almost hard to believe. Of course the onsite massages helped too. In addition the other guests supported and encouraged each other during our communal dining to participate- most evident in the daily mandatory walks in a variety of lovely locations.
The format of the day worked around these activities so that at the heart of the experience was changing my physical state from the inside out. All meals were tailored specifically for me, homemade, organic , nutritious and absolutely delicious-Gypsa is a super cook and integral to the smooth running of operations. Dani was ever present to inform, educate but also to have a laugh with. She willingly shared all her knowledge and lives the philosophy of the Paleo way. I have the skills to take with me so this isn’t a ‘quick-fix’ but for the long-term.
There was ample opportunity for rest by the pool or in any one of the gorgeous rooms. I was delighted to get the room with the 360 degree views- with just the stars and peace and quiet. Even thinking about it makes me wish I could have stayed longer!
The team of experts and therapists that you can avail of is extensive and all must meet the high standards that Dani sets.
To give some balance there were days that I struggled- and just needed to rest- the calm quiet air-conditioned rooms allowed this to happen. My sugar monster did not give up easily either and only for the support and understanding of the team at the Villa I might not have succeeded. It just didn’t feel so difficult in this place...
As mentioned in other posts the ice baths and ‘special coffee’ in the morning were met with apprehension but DEFINITELY work.
One of my all time favourite holidays ever. Oh and by the way yes- I lost weight...and skin improved, sleep regulated, digestion improved, stress levels dropped considerably, clarity improved, fitness soared...to name just a few of the benefits. Thank you to Dani & the Villa family. I will be back for maintenance!!

I would like to tell you about my personal experience going to this retreat.

It might be long so I apologize in advance. The good news is that I lost 6 Kg at the place in just 10 days and I added another 9 Kg back home and it is all because of this great place and the people.

I was at a point in my life that I needed a big change. I am overweight, over stressed and just needed an escape. I went online and started to search for "Weight Loss retreats" and this place came up. I am not sure if by them changing the name this will help them as many of us who are desperate search the net for weight loss and not wellness. Anyways, this is their decision.

I looked at many places online and most of them are heavily focused around working out. I am a 45 year old man and still believe I am 25 so working out sounded pretty good to me. I would have chose any other place but this one but something just drew me to the this place. It appeared different and focused on the total weight loss experience and not just on working out. I read the reviews like you are doing now and the people spoke highly of it. I was at a point in my life that I had to make a change so I just booked it and went without knowing what to expect.

I arrived there and the service was exceptional. Here are the things that I loved:
1) The pick up from the airport was wonderful so I did not have to worry about this.
2) Getting weighed as soon as I arrived and monitoring my weight everyday was a plus and a huge motivator. They also measured my blood sugar which also went down significantly after I went through their program.
3) The staff are incredible (Kez, Gypsa, Su x2, Pu, and the rest) are all amazing. During my time also there was a lady called Anette who kept us all in line. I loved her, she was wonderful.
4) They do your laundry. I wish I knew this in advance, I would not have brought lots of cloths. This was done daily. This was so cool.
5) The food was so great. Who said that good healthy food should taste bad. They prepared amazing food (even shrimp).
6) The consultants they brought (Clay - This guy plays with your mind and he is incredible. I needed to speak about my pain and he listened and did something in our hypnosis session that made me stick to my diet until now. He is a must on your retreat)
Craig - the nutritionist is so well versed with nutrition and diet information. I loved every minute we spent together. He makes sense and I learned a lot on what to eat and what not to eat.
7) Tina was the best fitness trainer and has so much energy. When she said she is a grandma and she has a body like this. It is crazy. She is beautiful inside and out.
8) I loved having a structured program of activities everyday so I knew what to expect. Lots of activities and lots to do to contribute to your weight loss
9) Temple visits - we did 2 of them and they were great
10) Daily 1 hour walks are incredible as the beaches we went too are so amazing

What I advise:
1) Go with a friend. I was so fortunate that I met another guy over there were we bonded instantly and we pushed each other. Having someone like that is wonderful. "Tray I am grateful to you"
2) If you do not have a friend to go with, just go, you never know who you will meet. It is a must if you are at a point in your life that you need a big change. You are worth it.

Things I did not like personally but were very important to be part of the program:
* I did not like the Vinegar water in the morning. I know it is very good for you. I just did not like it so much. I highly recommend you stick to everything they ask you even if you do not like it as everything is based on studies they made and it is beneficial
* I hated Ox tail dinner. I am so happy that I tried it though as Food has always been my reward and because I ate this, I now consider food as just a source of energy and not a reward. Some people like this, I just did not but I am happy I ate it.
* Ice Bath - They dip you in a tub full of ice for 20 minutes twice a week. This burns fat they say. It hurts. I am sure it is beneficial for you. It just was painful. Again, I advise you to do it like I did.....

The only requirement they have is for you to do the walks in the morning and stick to your meals. The rest is just a bonus. I did everything and today I can say I am 15 Kg lighter because of them.

I can not thank them enough for everything and I highly recommend the place and the experience. Go Go Go.... You are worth it, they will take care of you, like they took care of me.

Dany and the team at PWLR provide the perfect environment for those wanting to lose weight. I visited for two weeks, and while I wish I was able to stay for longer, the program is perfectly set to ease you back into your day to day life and ensure that you are able to maintain your weightless when you return home. The schedule provides a good mix of exercise, relaxation and the opportunity to explore Phuket.
The villa itself is luxurious, with all the benefits you would expect from a five star resort.
The food is very tasty with the wonderful Gypsa and the rest of the girls more than happy to make variation to the menu depending on your tastes. This is the perfect way to spend some time off work, combining a great holiday wiith some great health benefits

I've been trying to shake a few extra kg's and just feel like i used too - just better - if that makes sense for a few years now. Ive tried a couple of different methods of weight loss and just improving general well being - detox leaves me feeling just wasted, Lean Cuisine is a good option when the family is away and I see a frozen meal of there's at the Coles . But Paleo lifestyle has always interested me, we are descendents of people who hunted for there own food, ate no sugar, grew no wheat - that's why I just tried Paleo weight loss in Thailand . Simple accommodation, realistic exercise plans and Danielle the owner has a way to help you lose weight, feel stronger and smarter and the bonus for many of us, no hunger pains, and it's all achieved by returning to our ancestors ways. Not one of the best things I've ever done, its the best thing I've ever done.

I went to Phuket Thailand from the night of Friday the 27th of March till the late night of Sunday 5th of April with a group of friends to start our Paleo diet program under the super vision of Danielle. The night of our arrival to the area where is the Villa we stayed in for 9 full days exclude traveling, it was a night to all of us to make a huge & major change in our habits & life.
The trip end up to be a life change to all of us which gave us the boost till today to continue & enjoy the weight loos & the new life style of living..
My weight was 114 kg on day one of my program which I left the villa on the night of the 9th day of staying there with a weight of 107.3 kg. Today I am 98.8 kg enjoying my new life style and still loosing slowly my weight..
The experience with Danielle & her team headed by Gypsa and others make our stay very enjoyable and healthy.
The good food, service & activities helped us to go throw the heard and easy days with a strong moral.
I look forward for my next visit to the Villa for future enjoyment.

I took three of my friends there based on the trip advisor reviews. It was a risk I was ready to take as we were all in desperate need of a weight loss program that really works.
To my surprise, we ended up in a luxurious villa, and were pampered by the best service staff. Danielle, the owner, was extremely helpful throughout the day. She is very knowledgable in the science of food and diets. It is so easy for her to convince you to adhere to the Paleo diet. We all did and started losing weight from day one. Our days were filled with great activities. Thank you Danielle. And also thanks to Gypsa, the lovely chef.
We will definately come back.

This place is nothing short of life-changing! If you have struggled with health or weight on and off or much of your life, just come here and don't look back. If I could, I would send my whole family here tomorrow, for both fast weight loss results AND the other habit changing stress relief benefits and self-care this holiday offers.

I went for 3.5 weeks and it was true relaxation and fun while you're also doing something good for yourself - my ideal vacation. It's not cheap (actually, compared to similar health retreats in the states it is) but ultimately it's the tiniest investment you can possibly make compared to the massive lifelong results it can give.

My Favorite Things About It:
-Delicious Bulletproof Coffee every morning plus delicious meals at lunch and dinner. Every day is different. [You really won't miss your all-inclusive resort buffet meals, I promise you.]
-It's like "Club Med For Paleo" in the best way possible. Tons of activities and outings you can pick from every day, though nothing except the walk is mandatory. It's fun meeting other international guests, and you never have to get out your wallet a single time unless you really want to shop for souvenirs.
-Total luxury: get driven everywhere. Towel/bed and laundry service every day. Everyone is so nice and kind, they will go out of their way to help you if you forget to pack something or really have any issue at all.
-If you stay 1-2+ weeks you'll already see great results. If you stay for 3-4 weeks, it's long enough to really change your habits for good when you return to reality. I've learned a lot about paleo cooking, portion sizes, and meat-fat-carb ratios that I can easily apply in my own life.
-They really know what they are doing when it comes to ketogenic diets and weight loss (if you want to learn more about how a paleo keto diet works, check out any number of paleo blogs or the Bulletproof Diet. It's basically that - super attentive to food type and quality, intermittent fasting times of day, detox protocols, stress relief, great sleep, and on and on!).
-I was on-and-off paleo for three years before coming here, but I still never saw the speedy results that this place helped me get, over 15 pounds off in 3 weeks.

Packing Tips For The Overanalytical Packer:
-After walks on the beach, which is many days of the week, you'll have the option to go for a dip in the ocean immediately after the walk. For this, I recommend wearing your swimwear under your workout clothing in place of sports bras most days. Pack accordingly - more suits, fewer bras!
-Bring 3+ swimsuits if you love pool and ocean dips multiple times per day, you'll always have a dry one!
-If you are like me and sweat a lot, which you will extra in high heat and humidity, bring longer shorts or yoga-style 3/4 length leggings for your morning walks. Your legs will thank you. I brought one pair of leggings and it was great but wish I'd packed an extra.
-If you want to shop or buy add-ons, bring larger denominations of cash with you (ie. $100 bills rather than $20 or $5 bills), because you get a much better exchange rate at the money changers they'll take you to in town. This money will be useful for market shopping as well as buying add-ons if you want to take advantage of any of the health experts offered like massage, spa, hypnotherapy, etc.
-That said, money isn't really needed at all, since it's all inclusive!

Even if you aren't considering coming here for weight loss, it's still perfect as a super relaxing paleo holiday in Phuket. There is nowhere else in the world that I know of where I could come, hang out, have a good time, stay clean with my eating, and return home actually in better health than when I left. I'll be back!

The best thing I can say is read Ellabella's review below. She has taken the time to articulate all the wonderful things about the retreat. Only thing I can add is that I stayed 4 weeks, and loved having the time to cement all the newly learned lessons and habits. And I stayed in the pool room on the ground floor, and would chose it as my preference again.

Thank you to the PWLR team who made this such an amazing experience. Now I have to keep up the work at home. I lost 8 kg while there.
