I absolutely loved every minute of my stay at the Absolute Sanctuary in Samui. My main purpose was to do yoga, relax, have time for me and detox: I accomplished all of them!.

It is my first attempt at detoxification and Absolute provided a good complete program for my retreat. If you are looking for a 5-star hotel setting, this is not the place, but it has all the essential amenities and services that is enough to make the stay comfortable.

The hotel is in a quiet and remote location but only about 10min drive from Samui airport. They offer a free transfer and a friendly driver picked us up in an air conditioned van with complimentary bottles of cool water which was a nice touch.
