Sometimes the best way to move forward is to retreat…
‘Juicy Mountain’ is situated high in the mountains of sun-drenched southern Turkey and boasts one of the most stunning sunsets you’ll ever see. This unique rustic retreat is miles away from anywhere and is the perfect place to totally ‘detox’ both body and mind. Best-selling health author Jason Vale (aka The Juice Master) has been running his juice/fitness/yoga retreats at this stunning location for over twelve years and every year it is full to capacity.
It’s hard to pin point exactly what makes this rustic retreat so successful. The hotel itself is a little rough around the edges and you won’t find the latest plasma TV in your room, but then perhaps this is its charm. It’s beautifully rustic and has no airs and graces, yet is wonderfully idyllic and has some beautiful organic touches, giving that wonderful spiritual feeling.
The juices are naturally made fresh from the finest locally grown produce, the supplements are of the highest quality and the mountain water flows in abundance, but these are just a small part of the jigsaw which makes Juicy Mountain the extremely unique place it is.
Perhaps it’s the combination of fitness, yoga and juice detox that draws people from many parts of the world time and time again. Maybe it’s the beautifully mountain walks and runs, the education, the intimate nature where people make friends for life, the classical rebounding overlooking the valley, the fact people lose at least 7lbs in just 7 days…who knows? But one thing is for sure, whatever it is – it just works.
Jason has personally spent a lot of time in Southern Turkey up at the Juicy Mountain Retreat working on projects/books. This is in fact the home of the legendary ’7lbs in 7 days’ and where could be a better environment in which to do a juice detox programme? During the week you will live exclusively on a variety of juices and smoothies from Jason books, made from locally grown produce (where possible).
Many people come simply to lose some unwanted weight and catch some sun, but that’s only the beginning. A Juice Master detox is different to most detox weeks and is designed so that the week is action packed with activities from Yoga and Meditation to Table Tennis, from Classical Rebounding to Beautiful Mountain Walks.
There are so many benefits and what you will gain from the week that is difficult to put into words. Its an opportunity to press pause on life back home and step out of the fast paced world and enjoy some ‘YOU’ time. Our aim is that you leave with a new found vigour for life, bundles of natural energy and trimmer waist line. Although Jason will not personally be there, you will be in the hands of his well trained and dedicated team.
Juicy Mountain Hotel is a property that offers everything that our guests could desire in terms of peace and tranquillity. The characterful stone buildings with spacious rooms, the beautiful mountain views and the warm Turkish hospitality all contribute to our feeling that this is a truly extraordinary destination.
The first thing to strike you on arriving is the view. The retreat is designed to take full advantage of the stunning panoramic views across the mountains and valley below. The various stone terraces provide several vantage points from which to do nothing other than sit in absolute tranquillity and contemplation.

Living on Juice
This is a ‘Juice Only’ Retreat. All juices are made using only the finest locally grown ingredients (where possible). You will have freshly extracted juices made for you regularly throughout the day and various high quality supplements which will aid the cleansing and detox process.
Many of the rooms have been redecorated for extra comfort and relaxation and there are now new tents available with a larger space to enjoy too. The tents also now have raised beds. There are now 2 toilets is available at the camping area and also 2 enclosed warm and cold water shower there too. Water takes about 20 mins to warm up again after each use (during cooler months). The power generator has been renewed, so hopefully the WI-Fi connection etc will not be too intermittent!

Flights, Transfers & Visa’s
The prices on the site do not include flights. The destination airport is Dalaman, Turkey. We do not include flights to allow you to be more flexible.
Scheduled transfers from Dalaman airport run throughout the day on the first Friday (not including flights landing in the early hours of Friday or other days – extra charges will apply to be transferred during then, or to alternative locations). Depending on the flight arrival time, clients will either be taken directly to the retreat on the scheduled transfers, or may need to wait roughly between 30 – 45 mins for the transfer to leave if it is shared with other guests arriving on alternative flights soon before/after..
Most clients land between 13.00 – 14.00hrs. If you land before 16.00hrs, the transfer will take you to the village Gocek first (as rooms will not be ready before this time and we need to allow for the previous weeks clients to leave). If booking an early flight please be aware of this. Gocek is a lovely little village where you can visit the fishing ports, do shopping or visit the cafes for a healthy drink/meal before heading up to the Retreat. Our Drivers are trusted and so will look after your bags and then advise where to meet at around 1600hrs to head up to the Retreat.
Late arrivals after 22.00hrs may not be greeted by a team member on arrival at the Retreat and will be provided with accommodation details in advance – to get settled in quickly. You are required to check out of your accommodation by noon on the last Friday although we will of course look after you at the resort until your transfer is due to collect you. The team will advise on options to go to the village of Gocek too.
The charge for a return scheduled transfer is £60 per guest and can be booked via Nina on +44 (0)1234 480 280, option 2. ‘Any-time’ transfers for other destinations or days other than Friday (if landing outside of the daytime into the evening) will incur an extra charge.
It is advisable to apply for your online Visa at least 1 week before departure date. Your VISA is valid for 180 days from the time of application, so you must have returned from Turkey within that time. The price for a VISA for a UK or Irish citizen is $20 (roughly £15 or €20). Juice Master cannot be held responsible for any information provided regarding VISA application, it is the clients responsibility to apply and obtain the correct VISA for travel to Turkey.
