The Gut Makeover Retreat
‘The Gut Makeover Retreat’ at Cugó Gran is inspired by The Gut Makeover (published by Quercus Books), a cutting-edge eating plan designed to restore digestive health for optimal weight, as well as physical, emotional and mental balance. ‘There is a revolution happening right now in the nutrition world. Recent discoveries from leading researchers show that the state of our gut is central to our weight and health. So, if we want to look and feel good for the long term, we need a diet that creates a high-performance digestive system. We have entered the gut-health era of diet and nutrition, and it will be here for a long time,’ says Jeannette Hyde.
Total Relaxation in 250-Acre Private Estate
To promote total relaxation, which contributes to digestive health, The Gut Makeover Retreat is set in the exquisite and luxurious surroundings of the private 250-acre estate of Cugó Gran, a full-service luxury villa, providing the services of a five-star hotel including chefs, butler, housemaids, driver, events co-ordinator, and house manager. The facilities include a 26-metre outdoor heated pool, a barbecue area, terraces for outdoor dining, a gym and massage treatment room. The stunning interiors, including 11 bedrooms (accommodating up to 22 guests) are influenced by the Mediterranean, the aesthetic is pared-back luxury with a focus on sumptuous beds and linens. Pale fabrics and floors are accentuated by splashes of colour from baskets of fresh local lemons to bouquets of flowers and herbs picked from the estate’s own lavender fields, greenhouses and herb gardens.
During ‘The Gut Makeover Retreat’ Jeannette will share her immense experience and nutritional knowledge with guests and will work closely with Cugó Gran’s Head Chef to devise delicious, gut-friendly meals inspired by vibrant and diverse real Mediterranean cuisine. All the ingredients used are of the highest quality and locally-sourced where possible, many of them originating from Cugó Gran’s own kitchen and herb gardens.
Mental and physical balance will be further enhanced through individual and group Pilates sessions with Bernadette Phillips who has worked with a host of celebrity clients to help them achieve their goals. Bernadette is particularly known for her sport-performance focused method, which helps people improve flexibility, core strength, and posture, and to recover from injuries. She will run both individual and group Pilates sessions with guests at Cugó Gran.
For the two 45 minute treatments included in the retreat package we offer the MIJI KODO massage treatment from LI’TYA (which mean’s ‘Of the Earth’)
This rhythmic body massage is inspired by traditional Australian Aboriginal techniques which work to balance and re-align energy flow, enhancing mind and body wellness. A combination of pressure points and spiralling movements ground and uplift, working to relieve muscular aches and pains while leaving the body renewed and refreshed. A choice of native aromatic oils is prescribed to address your individual needs, to rejuvenate, harmonise or detoxify.
The products from LI’TYA are formulated using sustainably wild harvested, pure Australian botanicals and organic ingredients with guidance on the Indigenous plant knowledge & healing principles. We are proudly Australian made and owned & certified cruelty-free.
While there will be an emphasis on not doing too much and relaxing as much as possible, guests can take part in other activities; including yoga sessions; gut-friendly picnics and boat trips visiting some of Menorca’s most beautiful caves and beaches. Guests can also take walks, bike or horse ride along the many beautiful sections of the famous Camí de Cavalls – an ancient path which encircles the island.* (*horse-riding and guided bike rides have a small supplement)
Jeannette Hyde has now released “The Gut Makeover Recipe Book”
Over 100 carefully crafted, nutritious and gut-friendly recipes to make The Gut Makeover easier than ever.
