Paul's Review of Absolute Sanctuary

Arriving in Koh Samui, I was greeted by a friendly Absolute Sanctuary driver and taken to this healthy hideaway, located in a quiet part of the Island. Absolute Sanctuary is Thailand's premier detox and yoga resort and just five minutes from the airport, a stunning Moroccan-inspired boutique resort for those seeking a holiday to rejuvenate, unwind and lead a healthy lifestyle.

Charlotte's Review of Absolute Sanctuary

If you're a fan of yoga, sunshine, delicious healthy food, fresh fruit smoothies and incredible juices that can't do anything but whack a huge smile upon your face - then this is the place for you! In fact, I can honestly say, being healthy has never been so easy for me as it was during my week at this retreat.

Guest Reviews of Absolute Sanctuary

Health and Fitness travel found me the perfect holiday to fit my needs!  The experience was quick, easy and professional.  Despite there being lots of choices it was easy to hone in quickly on the holiday that suited what I wanted and my budget. 

In between leaving a job and setting up a new business I spent 10 days at Absolute Sanctuary on the fitness programme - I wanted to feel fitter, lose weight and relax and I achieved all 3 aims. The place is so nice - really relaxed, great service and people (fellow guests and staff). The food was just fantastic, but even those doing the full detox programme seemed happy with the drinks they were being given.
The gym could do with some more equipment but Marco, my personal trainer, was really creative and effective with the kit that he had. In particular, the boxing and pool sessions made a real difference and were fun too. I really enjoyed my daily personal training sessions. The yoga was great, Jana is wonderful and gave me a great introduction to various different types of yoga.
It's a great place to go as a solo traveller - in part because most of the other guests are on their own too but also because of the type of holiday. The fitness programme gives your day just enough structure that you are always 'busy' but never to the extent that it affects your ability to relax. Daily treatments (massage, saunas etc.) were just heaven. I've had long term back and neck problems and within days of arrival felt so much better (I think the yoga had a lot to do with that too).

Like a lot of other people there who are already regular visitors I plan to go back at least once a year. For the first time ever losing weight didn't feel like an exercise in deprivation - Absolute Sanctuary makes it feel like a pleasure with such lovely food, fun exercise, yoga and indulgent massages and treatments. It's changed how I think about food and exercise and the weight is still falling off 3 weeks after coming home.

It was a wonderful holiday thanks and exactly what I needed.  I feel fitter and more relaxed (or at least I did until I was back in work a couple of days!).  The yoga was very good and the food excellent, and I started to get back into good habits.  I just wish I’d had longer.

Thanks for all your help!

I LOVED it!  It was fantastic, exactly what I expected and everything executed perfectly.!  I really hope to go back next year or at least make it an every other year thing. You guys have been great and I would definitely use you for these holidays going forward.  I’ve already recommended the trip to pretty much everyone, but not sure that they are detoxers!
