Golden Rock is pretty much last off the block as far as Amed’s accommodation scene goes.
It calls itself an "innovative detox and healing centre" and as such offers a range of cleanse programmes (the two main ones appear to be a four- and seven-day cleanse) along with longer retreats. Importantly, Golden Rock does not accept walk-in traffic, so if you’re in the market for a spur of the moment cleansing, they may not be able to help. We were told all reservations needed to be made in advance via their website. While we were not able to see inside a room, the setting is lovely with beautiful grounds and a well placed swimming pool, plenty of shade and a generally very relaxed feel -- as you’d expect in a healing and relaxation centre. Rates are high, with a four-day cleanse coming in at just under US$1,000 for one person. This price does include accommodation -- staff told us it is not possible to stay here unless someone in your room is undertaking a programme. See their website for full pricing details and more information on the various courses on offer.
