I come to visit Thailand every year and I always make sure to spend my mornings at Absolute Sanctuary doing yoga and meditation. Absolute Sanctuary is a beautiful hotel that offers more than just detox and spa services, it is a place I call home. I have taken many classes with the very talented Jana over the years and Alicia,... More

I have been practising yoga for 3 years and as a single traveller felt that a visit to a yoga sanctuary would be a good way of getting a taste of Thailand by myself. I had been worried about travelling on my own and potentially being lonely whilst away. This was certainly not the case. Absolute Sanctuary was so friendly... More

I went to the Sanctuary in December 2013 for a 13 day break of yoga, detox and relaxation. What I found while I was there is that the whole package is an amazing privilege to experience.

We obviously value the Cleansing Spa experience, we've come here three times. Yes, we have tried others on Samui, but we think this one is hard to beat in terms of size of property. When experiencing a several day de-tox you want all services convenient to your room, and they are at Absolute. The facility is large enough to enjoy... More

I stayed in Absolute Sanctuary for a Yoga Training Course for two weeks in January 2014. The venue is wonderful for that purpose.
