GENUINE REVIEWS BY REAL GUESTS !
Insanity boot camp at Pine cliffs
I had an amazing experience at pine cliffs with the insanity boot camp. The longevity team (Sophia) was always very responsive and helpful. I recommend contacting them right away if adjustments should be made at the hotel (e.g. food portions). Pine cliffs is an amazing hotel. I had a great personal trainer (Armindo). Food was also healthy but still delicious. Boot camp session varied every day including outdoor sessions on the trail and at the beach as well as gym sessions. The SPA is nice as well and the massages definitely helped a lot to do it all over again the next day. Will definitely come back here and/or do a trip elsewhere with longevity.
Truly a 5 star experience
Sharing my week long wellness retreat experience courtesy of Longevity Escapes with the assistance of Sandra. Wow, what a pleasure to have experience Pine Cliffs! Yoga, cycling, boxing, pilates and more daily classes to choose from. Sandra also helped me organized my tennis lessons. Very hands on following up during my retreat which I appreciate a lot together with all her recommendations. Pine Cliff is gorgeous and I visited in the beginning of November, I was hesitant to go during this period perhaps the weather will be terrible but I could not be more wrong! Thank you again Sandra for changing my mind! The resort has everything you need, I did not feel the need to leave the property for the entire week! The beach where I spent most of my mornings and afternoon was just splendid! The food at their restaurants were amazing as well as the Champagne bar, a beautiful place to enjoy the sunset. The room I stayed in was so comfortable, I slept so well! After my retreat, I feel so recharged and empowered to go back to my daily routine. I cannot recommend Longevity Escapes well enough. For sure I will book another retreat with Longevity Escapes and do not forget to look for Sandra, she is just an angel!!
Excellent Personalised Service
I would highly recommend Sandra and Longevity Escapes for their very personalised and tailored service. From the moment I spoke to Sandra she really listened to the type of escape I was looking for and offered options and a program that was tailored to me. Even after the holiday was booked, she was very attentive and willing to assist with any concerns or matters that I raised during my stay, including changing ferry bookings and arranging hotels because of a delayed flight
I would definitely book with Sandra again.

We Left Feeling Energised and Rejuvenated!
Longevity Escapes made our holiday package arrangements for our retreat in Phuket. We were looking for a place where we could reboot both our mind and body with plenty of yoga and healthy eating. Longevity Escapes suggested Mangosteen which turned out to an excellent choice. They also arranged for us to have a Jacuzzi Villa each of us which turned out to be truly amazing rooms. Such a luxury to have a whole Jacuzzi Villa with patio, hammock and an indoor jacuzzi to oneself. Sandra, the nutritionist at Longevity Escapes, also recommended us to start eating healthier prior to the trip, and provided us with consultation and recommendations before leaving. Very valuable and lovely gesture. Due to the pandemic, there were of course extra regulations and administration to consider, but Longevity Escapes provided us with really clear information so in all, travelling to Thailand was made smooth and easy. Very much appreciated. We left feeling energised, rejuvenated and with our bodies and mind in better condition than when we arrived. So mission accomplished! Thanks Longevity Escapes for an amazing trip!

My stay was certainly worth the money!
I booked a 20 day weight loss program through Longevity Escapes which made everything so much easier. I booked at the last minute and Sandra and Sophia took care of everything. Including the food, the schedule of group lessons and personal training. Also my tennis schedule. This all had to be worked out with the spa schedule as well. I didn’t realise how much work this was until I arrived! My journey started with a nutrition consultation with Sandra before arrival, this was helpful for the trip and post my stay. The Pine resort was beautiful and the staff very welcoming and helpful. Sandra checked on me throughout my stay. I had some issues with getting water throughout the stay which Sandra fixed for me. Sandra’s knowledge of nutrition was amazing and I felt well above the level of the resort. It’s good to have the support of Longevity Escapes to ensure the correct food and water is provided in the program. Added bonus was the price. I was able to get a discount. Pines Cliff resort was amazing, the food was great, the lunches at Zest a highlight. Catarina the PT was AMAZING. In 10 days I lost weight and felt much stronger and fitter. They also have great tennis facilities and I played most days with Bruno- what a superstar. The weather was perfect and it was off peak time so not all the crowds – February best time to go! The entire staff at the resort are super friendly and can’t do enough for you. My stay was certainly worth the money. I would recommend to anyone looking to relax, enjoy the spa and take time out or go hard with the gym, group classes or tennis. The choice is yours, Sandra and the Longevity Escapes team will help you choose what is right for you!

I found what I needed in this program.
I found what I needed in this program. I’m coming back home feeling relaxed and well rested. The highlight of the stay were views and people (also I had fantastic weather which helped with both :)). I had a couple of hiccups with my meals at the beginning, but everything was fixed thanks to the intervention of Sandra from Longevity Escapes.

Support before, suring and after your stay
If you are looking for time away to reset your mind and body, then Longevity escapes is the place to go.
Sandra spent a huge amount of time consulting with me via text and on the phone to make sure I booked the right trip, and I was a nightmare because I didn’t know what I wanted. This was my first time having a holiday alone and she not only met me at the airport but also was on hand throughout my entire stay and responded to my text queries really quickly. This was so reassuring especially as a solo traveller.
I booked the bio age detox programme in Greece and the food was wonderful. I didn’t feel hungry at all. I went away broken. I had just lived through the toughest 14 months and pretty much ate my way through it. My mind and my body felt toxic. I couldn’t make decisions, I was tired all the time despite sleeping lots and I was finding myself hiding away from my normal social life.
After 7 days eating the food designed by Sandra, daily yoga, a massage every single day and lots of sunshine, I came back home feeling myself! I had more energy and all the enthusiasm to start cooking healthy meals again and keep up with a yoga and workout practice.
In terms of what I lost, for the weight I am not sure. I was told 8kg but that seems impossible and the scales were not working well so that was a shame but I lost 6cm on my waist and 4cm from my hips!
There were some areas that I think could have made my experience better, but these are not really a reflection on Longevitiy Escapes:
First the hotel. I stayed at the Giannadi Grand in Rhodes. This resort is lovely, it is exceptionally clean, the rooms are wonderful and the staff are so friendly. This hotel I think is great for couples and families but wasn’t ideal for my programme. The HiiT class was at 12pm in 28 degree heat in the direct sun and no one went to it. The steam room which was part of the detox, didn’t work for the duration of my stay, with no attempts to fix it. The meditation and stretching was meant to be on the beach but wasn’t. There is only one yoga class a day and that is at 8am, so if you are looking for lots of yoga options then this isn’t it. Food wise, they prepared lovely meals however, they didn’t always stick exactly to Sandra’s programme, adding chocolate to breakfast instead of cocoa nibs, making smoothies instead of juices. But really these things are not major and I still got what I needed from the break.
The other thing to keep in mind is, what type of trip you want. No one else in the hotel was on the programme or a solo traveller, so at times I felt odd. The programme is great and I was aware this was not a group retreat, but knowing other people are at the same location for similar reasons is always reassuring. My expectations were managed around this, so it wasn’t a surprise, but experiencing it, it made me think about the next type of retreat I would go for.
One other thing to keep in mind when booking is how you would like to pay. You can pay your deposit on credit card but the remainder has to be bank transfer. I was gutted about this as I really wanted the air miles. I am sure something could have been done but I booked really last minute. So when you book, just check the type of payment you want to make in advance and I am sure it would be accommodated.
Overall, having Sandra on hand to consult and provide advice before, during and after my stay was invaluable and that alone is worthy of a recommendation.
