The retreat experience is genuine, simple, and at one with nature and this is reflected in the accommodation. You won’t find any shiny cutting edge technology, but you will experience a warm, comfortable, and simplistic accommodation in a traditional Greek or English family hospitality style. There is a one bedroom house, and two studio bungalows with ensuite shower facilities, comfortable for two persons in each one.

This is termed cleanse rather than fast because you get all the adequate calories and nutrition required for the body to meet its daily tasks from at least four liters of fresh juice composed of daily green vegetable juices, fruit juices, and super green foods of spirulina, and wheat grass. The greatest benefit to a detox or cleanse is the ability to start fresh, and transition to a long-term healthy way of eating. Many of ZanteZest's clients and people who have followed the seven-day juice cleanse have told them that their cravings for salty, fatty, or sweet foods disappear.

Messinia will take your breath away with its diversity. From ancient Greek history to its vast olive groves, green valleys, mountains, gorges, and coves, numerous small, or long sandy beaches, small mountainous cliff-hanging villages with breathtaking views that hide beautiful gorges and waterfalls, Messinia is home to Voidokilia Cove, which is not only one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, but maybe also in the Mediterranean Sea.

Voidokilia is hidden behind sand dunes, which seem to be protecting its secret of magic beauty. The beach of outstanding beauty lies beneath the old Frankish castle (Paliokastro), and the cave of king Nestor, the ancient king of Pylos, who according to legend, used this cave as a haven for his cattle. From Voidokilia beach, you can pass onto the lagoon of Gialova through a natural path to observe the lagoon’s bird life, and the fascinating world of one of Europe’s most important wetlands.

On this retreat, the Zest team will work with you to customize a healthy detox juice and meal plan for you to kick start your metabolic rate, increase your natural energy levels, and aid to find your perfect body shape.

During your free time, you will have lots of options to see and do various activities such as sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, paddle boarding, cycling, sightseeing, horse riding, and many more.

    "I've been to ZanteZest 3 times and every time Julie and Nasos were amazing! Extremely good at their Zesting job, the exercises, the yoga, the advices on health, posture, mind and body and so on. They are kind hearted, warm and the most helpful couple I've ever met. I will go back again and highly recommend anybody to go to their programmes and juicing."

    "Julie and Nas are incredibly special. They are warm-hearted, generous, thoughtful, down-to-earth and extremely knowledgeable. I didn’t think it was possible, but they made detoxing fun. I learned something new every minute of the day and the way everything was explained meant I was able to fully integrate it into my day to day life. I left feeling energized, inspired and with a renewed-confidence. Zante Zest is without a doubt one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life."

  • Review by Serena from United States

    "Although my stay in Zakynthos was quite short, (5 days if I do recall), it was totally worth it and I would go back in a heartbeat. I was made to feel so special from the moment I got to the airport and for the duration of my stay. Finding not only a outlet from life in a beautiful place, I also found a friend in Julie and the other girl that was there. It was so nice to cleanse my body with the natural juices and have enough energy to work up a sweat at the same time. It is truly amazing what the human body can do if you treat it right. As a Lieutenant in the Marine Corps, I would love to plan more ZanteZest trips down the road. You couldn't really put a price on the kind of experience you here. It was a great find and I would recommend it to anyone who cares about their health and especially those who lead busy lives!"
