Executive detox

If you’re too busy to detox and can’t leave your hectic work schedule, we offer an Executive Detox. Our Executive master bedroom offers WiFi internet, private en-suite and a waterfront view so you can keep connected during your withdrawal. Here you can relax during your withdrawal process while taking care of business.

Food & nutrition

We believe in the health promoting effects of home cooked meals and the benefits of enjoying your meals. Our kitchen provides healthy gourmet-meals designed and supervised by a qualified Nutritionist. Meals are prepared according to fresh wholefood principles, with foods that promote detoxification, mental health and energy such as fresh fruits, salads and vegetables. Eating local seasonal produce is important to us.

Enjoying food is important during your detox, so we also love to lash out and have freshly made cakes for afternoon tea and desserts after dinner. Clients are offered coffee and tea with breakfast, followed by decaffeinated beverages after lunch. Fresh juices and smoothies are available during the day.

Gold Coast Detox caters to all food requirements and tastes. If you have any food cravings during your stay, we would be only too happy to accommodate you. If you have a craving for chocolate, we’ve got chocolate. Our cook is happy to accommodate for vegetarians, vegans and allergy sufferers. The menu does include dairy, fish, chicken and red meat for non-vegetarians.
