Food. We believe that the starting point for rejuvenation of the body and mind is through the foods that we consume, therefore at Go Natural Jamaica, we offer an abundance of carefully selected fresh fruits, organic vegetables, homemade foods and healthy snacks, prepared with loving care and attention.
Or menu is based on Jamaican & Caribbean cuisine with healthy international variations. Our juices and meals have the purpose to cleanse and rebalance the body, without eliminating the essential nutrients required.
It is a VEGETARIAN menu, with fresh seasonal products grown locally. There are 3 main meals included daily, as well as snacks and fruits during the day. All food is included in the cost of your retreat. *** (no food on Master Cleanse & Juicing retreat)
The foods that we do not serve include: pork, beef, chicken, fish, white sugar, bread, refined flour, dairy products, alcohol and sweets. These foods place extra stress on our body systems. By cutting them out for a few days, the body has the opportunity to rebalance itself.
We do a variety of teas from Jamaican herbs that have impressive healing properties. You can at any time make yourself any of these teas.
Jamaican flora possesses 80% of the most powerful medicinal plants and we have learnt to use them as natural remedies. We will be more than happy to share our knowledge with you.
Accommodation. We can accommodate up to 12 people, either on a Budget Dorm Room, Private Room or Seafront Villa. At this point it is important to remark that we are not a luxury resort.
Go Natural Sanctuary is a meditative space, located in a priceless natural environment. We don’t offer the luxury of a five stars resort (our facilities are eco-friendly and low-key), but we do offer a different kind of luxury: welcoming you as an integral human being – more than just a customer – where you can truly be yourself and feel genuinely cared for.
We have a shared space for all guests that includes a dining area, living room, and a massive garden with hammocks & a meditation pyramid. All that for your unforgettable relaxation experience. The property is beautifully landscaped with flowers and palm trees, great for meditation or chilling in the hammocks.
