Celebrity Nutritionist, Amanda Hamilton, Launches a New Detox Retreat at Macdonald Marine Hotel & SpaJason Firmager
Scotland’s celebrity nutritionist, Amanda Hamilton, is launching a NEW monthly detox retreat in her home town of North Berwick at the luxury spa destination of Macdonald Marine Hotel & Spa. Renowned for its beautiful coastal setting and glorious 19th century Victorian architecture, there’s no better destination to begin your juice detox weekend or five-day juicing break!
For more than a decade, Amanda has set up spas and detox programmes across the world, most recently made famous by Kate Moss who has become a detox regular at Amanda’s program in Turkey. In recognition of her impact in the spa sector, Amanda’s business was recently short listed for an International Growth Award in 2015.
‘It’s great to have an international business but there’s simply no place like home and the Marine Hotel in North Berwick is an exceptional location’, comments Amanda. ‘There’s a great network of personal trainers and therapists locally that we are involving in the retreats which is really exciting too.’
Macdonald Marine Hotel and Spa is home to a stunning thermal suite which specialises in a range of natural and marine inspired seaweed treatments. There’s also a packed timetable of extra activities focused on inspiring healthier lifestyle choices through education and exercise. Guests are encouraged to participate in beach workouts suitable for all levels and have a daily workshop on subjects such as weight management, stress and nutrition for longevity.
‘We’re thrilled to have teamed up with Amanda Hamilton, such a professional in her field’, explains Jeanette Jones, Managing Director of Leisure and Spa at Macdonald Hotels. ‘We have followed Amanda’s work in spa and health for years and we’re delighted that Macdonald Marine is able to add to the detox retreat programs, by providing guests with high-quality service and a first-class spa experience’.
With both residential and non-residential options, the breaks are based around juice fasting to optimise nutrients and minimise calories. This helps shift weight safely and offers a chance for the body to heal from within, often with a dramatic effect on health markers such as inflammation, cholesterol levels and insulin sensitivity.
On the longer retreats, a personal nutrition consultation is included to tackle any specific health issues or lifestyle concerns with follow up advice and menu plans. Guests will also receive follow on support menus to help maintain the benefits longer term and a goodie-box featuring some of Scotland’s most successful healthy food and drink snacks from Healthy Nibbles – the perfect way to finish your retreat and kick start your healthy new lifestyle from home.
Amanda Hamilton’s Juice Detox Break includes:
- Arrival 10.00am Friday
- 2 nights’ accommodation
- All juices & smoothies for the programme
- Specialist digestive boost drink from Rhythm
- Follow on personalised menus
- Daily guided walks and outdoor workouts

- Unlimited use of facilities and award winning thermal spa

- Depart 4.00pm
*Non-residential guests will be given a robe as well as having unlimited use of the luxury spa facilities.
Running until the end of October this year, there will be juice detox weekends once a month, with prices starting from £265.00 for the non-resident option, and £395.00 for the resident option.
