My wife and I just spent 14 nights at this beautiful hideaway on the idyllic island of Koh Phangan. The boat literally drops you off on the beach where you are welcomed by the super friendly Sanctuary staff who were amazing throughout our stay. We spent the first 11 days doing a detox which involved fasting and taking herbal supplements and specially prepared shakes 4 times a day. Our program was run under the very watchful eye of Tomi who was simply amazing. Her passion and knowledge for the program was hugely inspiring and her daily check ins with us kept us motivated to the end. I can’t recommend highly enough the program and the Wellness centre and all the wonderful staff. I personally lost 8 kilos in 11 days starting at 97 and my wife 6.5kilos starting at 70. We feel amazing so thank you everyone at the Sanctuary. The Sanctuary also offer a comprehensive range of yoga, Pilates and healing sessions. We personally took part in several and they were superb. Special thanks to Doran for his amazing Pilates sessions. He’s not only a brilliant teacher of Pilates but an incredible life coach. Thank you again my friend. We stayed an extra 3 days after the detox program just to enjoy the fabulous vegan food served all day at the restaurant. We will be back next year. Please don’t change a thing. Love Jason and Marisa xxx

My friend Nico a 2 x retreat owner recommended this place to me, and i am really glad he did ! Having also owned and run my own retreat centre for many many years ,I had the privilege to visit many Yoga and health orientated wellness centers around the world. I have to say i was extremely impressed by my recent visit for 3 weeks to 'The Sanctuary' As this place is well established, the quality and authenticity it offers is second to none. Extremely well managed with excellent staff and a chilled ,relaxing vibe, yet everything very well coordinated and run at the same time. The place has the most incredible varied and healthy menu ! beyond fresh and amazingly nutritious food I did a 10.5 day cleansing detox fast and cannot recommend it highly enough ! I then experienced the yoga classes (all great teachers) and visited many of the healing treatments that were on offer.(and there are many,) all skilled and highly intuitive. I also stayed in 3 different accomadations whilst there The location oF 'the Sanctuary; is simply majic ! directly on the beach. The accomadations are good value and i would call 3-4 star. not luxurious, not boutique and not pretentious. But comfortable and with good beds. This place has everything you need to reset, recharge or just take a healthy relaxed holiday. Great job to the management for keeping excellent motivated and efficient happy staff and also putting back into the community as they do through supporting there staff and family .I can,t recommend this place highly enough. go there !

I came to The Sanctuary on a detox retreat. The staff at The Wellness Centre were amazing. They were always on hand, very supportive and willing to help in any way they could. I stayed in room W3. That view... wow! Still etched in my memory The sanctuary is a place you’ll come back to again and again just like I have done over the past few years Its a beautiful secluded spot - perfect to disconnect and recharge your battery Highlights were yoga sessions with the wonderful Peter Clifford (highly recommended) Use of the infrared Sauna Massages everyday by skilled therapists who knew what they were doing The delicious food that I finally got to eat after my detox Warm and friendly staff that made you feel very welcome Breathtaking sunrises and views from my room Like I said in the title its "A home away from home" Im already looking forward to returning.......

Just spent 10 days in Sanctuary paradise with my two children. This was our 10th visit in 10 years. We long to come back.. this is the Sanctuary thing! we keep coming back for more. Sure it changes as all places do. But it is still off the grid and a total escape from the routine of the west. This is the offering, a total escape and close to nature, beach, awesome fresh food and a whole host of distractions, spa, wellness, yoga, meditation, swimming, walking and a great bar if that is your thing. Sanctuary is and will always be special.. it just keeps on maturing. The scale of the operation and the staff required to support it in such a remote location as well as the logistics including water and services are daunting. The staff have always been excellent. It is after all, the Sanctuary family. We will return.
