Guest Reviews

"Beautiful place, great staff and awesome food"

We were there for over a week and really enjoyed the stay. The staff was really helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed the services under our detox plan and survived comfortably on those delicious broths! For the rest of the stay we tried almost every dish on the menu at the cafe and there was never any reason to complain. Only down side were the scheduled classes for various alternative healing therapies - those are really just opportunities for people to pitch and you don't really 'learn' much and I literally slept through my session. The yoga classes were fine, good enough for a Detox retreat. The pool was the highlight!

"Great place for relaxation and rejuvenation"

Absolute Sanctuary is a great place to stay at if you are considering a vacation to relax and rejuvenate and get your health on the right track. You can participate in yoga classes, Pilates or do your own workout at the small but fully equipped gym. The Love Kitchen provides a wide range of healthy choices. You can detox or just eat healthy. I loved Absolute Sanctuary and would definitely go there again.

"Great place to reboot and get back to feeling good both mentally and physically"

I booked a modified detox course and additional days to allow myself time to really take advantage of all the good things I had done to my body and mind. The accommodation is fantastic and I was lucky to be upgraded to a wonderful room with huge bath and lounge area for my stay. The restaurant is outstanding, some of the best food I've eaten anywhere and given it was raw and all natural is amazing. Love restaurant really does rock. The juices and the pampering were another fantastic treat. Massages were excellent, the spa itself beautiful and the staff super friendly and skilled. The modified detox is less strict and doesn't have as many colonics and this suited me very well as I was new to detoxing. It was wonderfully quiet and largely when I was there female which I very much appreciated as the environment was non threatening and warm and as a solo traveller this was a great experience. I will be going back. If there is only one change to be made, it would be to have a slighly more receptive staff at reception and someone who can liaise between the spa, restaurant and other elements of the resort. I spoke with the staff about this and they were very receptive. Look forward to coming back.

"Vacation as it should be"

Finally a place where one can completely relax and rejuvenate. No kids, no rude staff, no junk food. A vacation one does not need a vacation from. I enjoyed well planned program, which kept me so busy, yet relaxed, that I did not have the interest to leave the resort. Now I am back to work with more energy + determined to continue with the healthy lifestyle I experienced in Absolute Sanctuary. Thank you Alena for your contagious enthusiasm and useful advice, Kik for beautiful treatments and Ja for tireless guidance. I definitely want to return and plan to have vacations like these at least once a year in the future, thanks to my experience in the Absolute Sanctuary. Sincerely, Kristina.

"My 'go to' place to detox, relax and de-stress"

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 often when I need to focus on getting work done, as after a few days there, you are feeling great and very focused. The detox drinks are great and there is a wide selection of fruit and vegetable detox drinks, much better than others I have have tried in Koh Samui. The detox packages include massages (which are consistently good) and colonics, pilates and yoga. The staff are all very experienced and friendly and its always a relaxing experience.

The program is very flexible, you get to choose your schedule, and its perfect for someone like me who is wanting to do my own thing and not be forced into group activities like other places. Although I have always traveled there alone, it would be fine to bring a spouse or friend who isn't detoxing as there is a restaurant that serves delicious yet healthy meals. Additionally, the grounds are very spacious, so even when I have visited over peak time at Christmas it never feels crowded. Its not located on the beach, however the pool area is so lovely that this isn't an issue for me. In summary, I highly recommend Absolute Sanctury, the whole experience is extremely good value for money compared to similar places in Asia and the US (that don't offer the same results) and I always return feeling refreshed and glowing and with a renewed zest for life.

"Koh Samui Bliss"

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 no children. Although on my last 2 days, there was a screaming toddler staying at the hotel.
As a solo traveller, I enjoyed the quiet, although other guests were friendly and happy to have a chat, whilst also respecting your need to be alone.
Yoga and pilates teachers were very good and willingly accommodated my injury. One to one personal training with Will was good - a combination of gym, boxing and swimming (again to accommodate my injury).
The Love Kitchen food was amazing.
I thoroughly enjoyed my daily spa treatments.
Will definitely be returning.

"Good Place for †Yoga‡ and Detox"

Stayed for 4 days over songran. Excellent option for people looking for a yoga /detox holiday. Yoga is excellent and the clean organic food is to die for... Its a quiet boutique resort far from noise and pollution and a great place to unwind and detox.. Great option for women travelers. Beach is far away and it gets pretty hot during the day. Yoga classes and the food is the highlight.

"Peace, calm and wellness up in the hills away from the tourist crowds"

First went here around five years ago to do a total detox program over 10 days - this can be a pretty rewarding experience - but also takes you a bit out of your comfort zone if you've never done this before. The health results of this stay impacted me positively over a number of years after. I just got back last month from my second visit to Absolute Sanctuary and I think it's gotten even better. The serene surroundings and the excellent and encouraging team at AS make the process of detoxing less daunting and enjoyable and pretty relaxing. The resort is high quality property and offers lots of various areas for yoga, treatments and therapies, communal areas as well as more private areas as some times you just want your own space when you are detoxing. I don't feel I would get around to detoxing or focusing this much on my health on a if it was in this type of resort where you really can solely focus on yourself and your health. I could see myself coming once a year and doing some of the less aggressive programs that aren't a full fast, as the food from the on site Love Kitchen is great. I budget for plenty of treatments and massages etc. as they are fantastic and I tried a few first time ones like Reiki which was brilliant and enlightening. Big thanks to Janelle on this last trip who was my consultant and helped me not only drop kilos and start to feel generally better but gave me plenty of tips to take away back into the "real world". Would definitely recommend AS to anyone who wants to try detox,destress or just a clean eating holiday in a fantastic well thought out resort in a private and peaceful location.
