I am just back from nearly 3 weeks at the gorgeous Sanctuary. Thats exactly what it is .. a little bit of paradise. This is a resort at one with nature, and merges from beach to jungle. The beach is lovely and there are other great beaches nearby too. Or one about 40 minutes amazing jungle trek away that is like being on a deserted island. I had a great experience doing yoga and meditations in the jungle, the best ever massages and food to die for. There was lots of interesting alternative meditations events and classes going on when i was there. I stayed in one of the traditional stilted open bungalows and this was very clean, simple and just perfect. Had an amazing bathroom formed from the cliff rocks. Cant wait to go back. see my photos.

I came to Sanctuary to have a relaxing and peaceful holiday, and I got much more than I bargained for.

Yes, if chilling is what you want to do then this is the perfect spot for it. The restaurant is right on the beach and I spend my first three days swinging in a hammock, listening to the seas and drinking healthy elixirs and eating the best veggie food I have ever had (I am not veggie but I could be after this menu)

That's where the chilling ended though as I found myself wandering through the tropical gardens to Yoga every morning and after a lazy lunch it was time for swimming and beach life followed with a trip to the spa every evening for a pampering. I stayed in one of their cute bungalows but will definitely book one of their cool houses next time.

So go to the sanctuary to chill but be prepared to pamper yourself too. I have to go back to do a detox program there and I guess ill have to return after that to sample the menu again. Could this be the start of a whole new life cycle. I hope so. Maybe next time, it will be a month….then two…
