I travel a lot, and have never felt compelled to write a review of a hotel until now. I have stayed at Absolute Sanctury several times, and it really is an absolute sanctury. I go there (normally last minute) when I am feeling stressed, over tied and need to relax and detox. I also use it as a work vacation... More

I recently visited Absolute for a 7 day Be Fit program. After a stressful year of health issues, this was my get-away to relax, re-charge and kick-start my fitness journey. The hotel itself is a little dated, but the rooms were spacious and clean, and were of a good size. I liked that there was no smoking, no drinking and... More

I really do find the poor reviews about Absolute Sanctuary quite amazing and feel like these negative people stayed in a different hotel to me. I had never been on a health holiday before so was not sure what to expect. I went with a girlfriend whilst our husbands went trekking in Namibia. I am a seasoned traveler and ex... More

I stayed 8 nights at the Absolute Sanctuary in April, and it was initially a mixed experience that finalised in a total blissful holistic experience. The place is away from beach and centres, so you are 'captive audience' that was also my purpose of my stay, totally away. Its a place for mental and physical wellness, but I arrived without...

I want to like this place. I'd love to love it. But sadly the consistency and quality of both staff and services is so erratic and unfortunate that I'm writing my first review!

We had a modified detox package which was 4 nights and 3 days. Overall the treatments, exercise schedule, juices and food offered were quite good. There was quite an extensive menu available. Our deluxe room was also very comfortable and clean. What made our experience only average was the service and inflexibility of the program! On the day we arrived... More
