Lovely place to go and relax. Alcohol free however plenty of places to go local if you want to drink. Good value for money, staff are lovely and the place is extremely clean. Healthy food served in the Love Kitchen. Sports facilities and programmes designed to your own specific requirements

Property's Favorite Review
Not my first time here. That's enough reason to come and experience Absolute Sanctuary...you keep coming back. The wellness vibe is certaiy real and the over all atmosphere alone already gives you the serenity you can only dream of. This is the right place for you if you want a break from your busy schedule or get out of the chaotic city life to recharge, recover, reset and just relax. I have done a Detox Program and the Pilates Bootcamp twice on different occassions. These programs I have availed are well organized and thought off...includes everything you'll need for your entire stay, from your accommodation, meals, the detox or work out sessions (depending on your program), holistic consultations to massages, which I always look forward to. I always had a pleasant stay. I appreciate how they kept improving and was actually welcomed with a more refreshing ambiance as they did some redesigning in their rooms and general color motiff on the entire resort when they reopened after the pandemic. I love the new Sun Shala for the outdoor morning meditation and yoga classes. Absolute Sanctuary is so far the absolute health and wellness luxury resort for me.

It was a very pleasant experience staying at Absolute Sanctuary, I went there for a five day fast with detox, so basically juices and treatments. The resort itself is very pretty, rooms very clean, aircons work really well. The staff were really great from those who provided the juices you had to the treatments for detoxing you receive, and all were very helpful at all times. The pictures that you see are accurate, the place is very pretty, and maintained very well. Three things I would say could be improved, but this is very personal... 1. As I was detoxing, I wanted to spend time by myself in my room, and one of the things I like to do, is plug my iPad in to the TV, and just binge watch all the Netflix series I downloaded... the TV screens in many of the rooms were super small, and very inaccessible to plug in an external device. 2. Shower pressure is always a challenge, sometimes all I want is a good strong warm shower, and the hotter you turn the temperature, the lesser the pressure is to the point where its just annoying... you then need to balance temperate vs pressure. 3. Wifi in the rooms works, but can be a bit inconsistent, if you sit in the restaurant or bar by the pool the speed is great, but I wanted to get some work done on my assignments or stream some TV... the speed got pretty slow, some improvements on wifi access in rooms would be good. Those three things are purely personal, and should not distract you from the main aim, which is to spend some time, getting healthy and cleansing your body, and if that is your main aim, there is no better place then Absolute Sanctuary.

I had some a wonderful experience with absolute sanctuary. The staff are very friendly and they ensure that u have a pleasant stay in their resort. Special mention to Kelvin n Quiton , who are my fitness trainers. They did a wonderful job explaining every move. The best staying in the resort is their food. Delicious , very healthy and the food presentation is superb. Massages were wonderful. They have very nice ambience with lovely music making you feel so relax . Therapists were friendly and attentive . They have in house activities like yoga, meditation. and shuttle services to bring you out to explore further. I would recommend anyone to come to this resort.

I choose this place to celebrate my 50th birthday and I couldn't have chosen a better destination! The staff, the food, the weather, the location and the plan I was on were all perfect! I was on the harmonising spa programme and it was so well put together. There was a nice balance of on site activities with time to go off site and explore the sites around the island. Koh Samui and Absolute Sanctuary is a beautiful place and one that I will have good memories about forever.

My detox experience at Absolute Sanctuary was wonderful. First of all the service is seamless. Everyone know exactly what you need to be doing. The staff are incredibly polite and attentive but not intrusive. The doctor / trainers are fully qualified and experts in their field. The whole experience was very encouraging. The gym is good but could be a bit more spacious especially during the day when it is occupied with more than 4 people. The rest of the facilities are good. I found my whole experience worthwhile and very beneficial. I would defiantly recommend Absolute Sanctuary.

From our welcome to our departure from this little haven of tranquility , we were so well looked after. Every little detail has been carefully thought out - from the yoga mat in our room, to the healthy sweet treat as part of the turndown service, to the incredible breakfast selection for those of us seeking to eat better! Even if you don’t sign up for the detox programmes for which they are renowned, you can definitely feel better after your stay with all the Pilates Reform classes and Yoga options. The Vitamin Bar by the pool is a joy, and I left definitely feeling rested, revived and healthier than when I arrived.

An excellent, small resort making it very personal. We were on a body alignment program which included Pilates & yoga as well as massages. Kevin who taught Pilates & Jana who taught yoga were exemplary, very patient & knowledgeable. Also Dr William the chiropractor was excellent. All the kitchen/ juice staff were amazing & couldn’t do enough for us. The food provided was very healthy & varied. Most of the spa staff were brilliant at their jobs. Only disappointment was when my 45min facial yoga was cut to 35mins for no reason at all! Hopefully next time we come there that will be solved. Thanks to all the staff for the Christmas party.

Absolute Sanctuay is the very best place to reset your mind, get healthier and rest your tired body and soul. My mind and body have been healed many times by coming Absolute Sanctuary. This time an unprecedented thing happened. My next-door neighbor brought a girl in his single-occupancy room. Every night they were so noisy and even my bed shook a lot. I heard them through my ear plugs. I sought help from front desk. Jee, the hotel manager, and all front desk ladies were seriously concerned for me. Then, they asked the guy to tone down and not to bring a girl in his single-occupancy room. He denied all, but that night while they were sneaking into the hotel from separate entrance, front a desk ladies caught them!! Wow!! They were just like Charlie's Angels or CIA! Wouldn't that be so cool? What a great stuff! Thanks to them, my restful stay in Absolute Sanctuay continues. Thank you, angels! I assure you if you are in trouble, which almost never happen, great staff will help you.
