I stayed in the front dorm - dorm1 . The windows look directly over the sea which is lovely. The dorm had lots of beds but doesn’t feel that way . It’s light and airy and quirky. Enjoyed my stay here. The only issue is one bathroom / shower for 19 people can be a bit annoying.

Reaching here is only possible with traditional boats which is extremely shaky from the waves and it boards from Haad Rin the center of Full Moon Parties beach. The smell of alcohol and this techno music all over. Too many stairs to your room so you need to be very healthy and

Where to even start.... The staff were rude to us from the moment we arrived and the bamboo hut itself was revolting. It was dirty with dust and dirt everywhere, the sink was on the floor and the fan wasn’t even good enough to create a breeze. Next to our hut was a very illegal

Clean, well run and different resort. Staff very friendly and supportive. I would praise in particular CHARD who went out of his way to contact, befriend and support me and, as far as I could see, all his other guests. This sort of attention really makes a difference

Hi - apologies for what you may seem to be slow/rude answers. Here at Sanctuary we have had a pretty hectic week here, and perhaps emails took a little longer to answer .due to other pre-monsoon activities. That said, i am sure you were answered within 24/36 hours . I would please can you e mail me the 'rude responses'to ( sorry i cant put it here - its relax at the Website address - thanks ) so that i can assess and give direction to the booking team For your information: Best option is to visit the webpage and go to all of the webpages under DETOX These are the page that have all the programs, all the options and outlines packages/their inclusions. If you would like to email again and state the dates you are interested in, the type of package, and an indication of what kind of accommodation you need (eg budget dorm or more comfy fare ) then we can go from there. Being based in Thailand means there is often a time delay between emails being answered. The Sanctuary is a self paced place to enjoy a cleanse surrounded by like minded people - the crew at the Wellness Centre are here to assist you with the cleanse, and the healers are here to facilitate growth and change. Despite the current rains i can assure you a attentive reception and support at Sanctuary regards Mike the Manager

"yes, the friday night of the party in bar up the road is noisy-annoying unless you join in!"
"If you're staying friday night for guys bar ask for a room far from it as it can be loud."
"Make sure you are clear on the type of room as there are many types"
"The cheaper basic rooms are quite comfortable & more affordable for a longer stay,, nothing like a bungalow on a beach in Thailand ,,,"
"ask for a bungalow past the Spice restaurant near the Tea Temple"
