I spent 8 days in the Sanctuary and have very interesting experience. The Sanctuary is a very complicated place. It has vast variety of accomodation, which is not very well explained on their web site. So, I am not giving excellent rating only because of presentation, as we have expected something else. This is not to say that we have not been happy, but the Sanctuary shoudl do more to explain to its prospective visitors the types of accommodation.
Firstly, the hotel is located in, at least in my opinion, one of the most beautifuls spots on earth. It is quiet and relaxing. It has a reasonably priced excellent restaurant. The staff is very nice and kind, however, somehow ineffective.
Take care as there is a lot of mosquitoes (note the fault of the Sanctuary).
