“I have benefitted physically, emotionally and mentally in many ways. I have challenged myself, tried lots of new things and felt energised, revitalised and most importantly empowered to lead a happier, healthier life.”
“Firstly lovely staff and experts. An overriding feeling of support and happiness. Depending on what detox or diet you are on, all delicious and nutritious. Carefully worked out and individual. Loved all the yoga, meditation and talks.”
“Went to have a real break and get away from everything, it was fantastic - calm, healthy food (delicious) and wonderful walks and yoga. Very comfortable and I feel SO much better after only one week - thank you Amchara - really hope I will be able to come again.”
Amchara’s overall mission is to empower you to total health and your personalised health plan can create the foundation for good long-term health, excellent longevity and very low risk of disease.

New beginnings and new experiences. If that is what you want then nothing beats Amchara. From the beautiful setting in the gorgeous English countryside in a stunning house dating back to the 1600's, to the phenomenal people taking care of every little detail. Everyone was SUPER lovely and make you feel so welcome. The food and juices are so delicious and fresh everyday. Evenings are super cosy by fire watching movies loafing on big comfy sofas. Will 100% go back!!! Thank you Amchara.Ali, Amchara Somerset,

Love the place, this is my third visit at Amchara. It is food for the soul and can be an amazing life-changing experience for those who want to learn about how to improve their wellbeing and health.Karen, Amchara Somerset,
After a consultation with Alex the naturopath, I decided to do a juice fast, which was perfect for me. I never felt hungry: on the contrary, the juices were really energising. At each juice time, all the naturopaths were on hand to deal with any questions. I also undertook some treatments: reiki and a signature facial. Liz, the reiki specialist, has truly magical and healing hands. I am very grateful to her. Rose gave the most delightful facial. Gozo itself is easy to explore from the retreat and has lots of interesting sites, including the magnificent citadel. The retreat organises walks, but it is fine to explore by oneself too.Molly, Amchara Gozo,
My daughter has health challenges and doing a detox makes her feel more empowered with her health. The staff were amazing, helpful, caring and kind to us. Met some great people there and hearing other people’s health challenges made us feel we’re not so alone. Does us both the world of good, gives us a break from everyday living and a reboot. I would definitely recommend to anyone.Brenda, Amchara Somerset,
The best decision I ever made to go to Amchara for my birthday. The staff and fellow guests were so lovely. Great facilities, good selection of juices and vegan food. After the initial detox I started to feel full of energy and my cravings had gone.Rita, Amchara Gozo,
