One of the most reasonable priced detox holiday resort in Thailand. The colonics and the food are great. They have some problems in terms of size and scalability and during the peak season just cannot manage the number of guests. This place is not the best for a fitness oriented program. They have limited number of fitness instructors and they...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you very much for your constructive comment. We have been planning to expand the fitness and already have the new equipment lists.

First time in Thailand and luckily a very good choice. We have chosen a relaxation package which gave us spa treatments everyday. Food was delicious and healthy smoothies and fresh juices at the pool were fantastic! The only thing I was missing was the beach.

Finally a place where one can completely relax and rejuvenate. No kids, no rude staff, no junk food. A vacation one does not need a vacation from. I enjoyed well planned program, which kept me so busy, yet relaxed, that I did not have the interest to leave the resort. Now I am back to work with more energy +...

Absolutely Sanctuary is a wonderful place, if you want to pamper yourself for a few days – but it is not cheap in my opinion.
