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.
Li’tya Massage Treatment
The 45 minute Li’tya massage treatment included in the package is the MIJI KODO, 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.
Rosalena Facial Treatment
This 45 minute treatment has been put together by Kim Holland.
Rosalena, is a range of beautiful & natural oil-based skincare made with 100% pure plant ingredients with no unnatural preservatives, parabens, or synthetic fragrances for glowing, healthy & radiant skin. Clean Beauty that delivers maximum results, everyday.
Rosalena’s hydrating oils penetrate into the skin cells along with added oil-soluble vitamins and antioxidants, right to where they are needed to nourish and hydrate skin. The molecules in natural plant oils are so fine that they are directly and quickly absorbed into the dermis, the skin layer that lies directly beneath the surface of the skin.
There will be organised walks each day to explore some of Menorca’s most beautiful caves and beaches.
Menorca has an incredible ancient path called the Cami de Cavalls that encircles the island and during the retreat clients will get to enjoy some of these sections.
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.
