If you are looking for detox. This is the place. Unpleasant as it all seems the staff go far beyond to make the experience the best it can be. Let’s not sugar coat things the first couple of days are hard work but when you have a beautiful room that is refreshed every day by the friendliest people and staff that are supportive and in touch you get through. The food is good and healthy and supports the detox ethos. The guys at the “bar” mix a mean vege juice that leaves you full and contented to while your way at the pool before the dream girls set to you with amazing massages. And it works!!!! Thanks guys I actually feel great. P.S. meet people from all over the world.

I came to Absolute Sanctuary 5 years ago for my first detox retreat, on my own. The place is everything you need, to be on your own and to reset your mind and body. So I made it a habit once a year ever since.
The service is personal and accommodated to your needs. Nothing is too much for them, but they give you your space and let you decide how you want to experience your retreat. The service and programs are tailor made and it is really for everyone! I only come here for their detox program on a full fast plan but it’s also great for fitness, yoga, Pilates, weight loss, meditation, .... and so on. The place itself is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. Anyone who’s looking for a more holistic holiday should definitely consider this place.

We stayed here for one week with the 7-day-yoga-holidays program. The staff is very friendly, the vegan food that is included tasted superb. The juices are delicious. But most important are the yoga classes - the main reason why we stayed here. There are many different classes every day, from challenging to relaxing.

The Absolute Sanctuary is the perfect place for me to come on vacation. I could enjoy the amazing spa, drink my favorite juices, attend Pilates classes and relax by the pool all in one place. I loved my time here and can't wait to come to Samui again just so I can visit this resort that sends me home feeling more refreshed than when I arrived.

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 sanctuary. I go there when I am feeling stressed, over tied and need to relax and detox.

I came here for their 7-day Absolute Ultimate Fitness program. What can I say, everything was so lovely: friendly staff, great and healthy food, effective fitness classes, and it is away from the touristic area so really quiet and peaceful :). Highly recommend if you are looking for a getaway trip to detox, physically and mentally.

I’ve been here now for the 5th time and it fails to disappoint. The detox programme is great with good guidance. As are the other facilities available - excellent Yoga and Pilates (Darlene & Jana) teachers who are first class in their teachings and knowledge, accommodating and adaptive to peoples bodily limitations during exercise. The ABS is not 5 star but it is 5 star when it comes to the service here. The staff are the true stars here - why customers like myself keep returning. They are kind, understanding, friendly, willing to go the extra mile and always smiling.
Keep up the great job!
The spa menu is great and so innovative giving people healthy alternatives and ideas to take back home. The only thing I wish the owner would do is bring back the LOVE KITCHEN BOOK!
Thank you ABS for always making my stay here so amazing!

The stay at the Absolute Sanctuary was fabulous. The deluxe accommodation was very comfortable with just enough privacy. The 3-day detox programme was also very effective and I wished I had booked to stay longer. I also enjoyed the yoga and Pilates classes very much. The food (both detox and regular menu) were delicious. This will definitely be a place that I will go back to in the future.
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.
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.

I found this experience very satisfactory.
I joined a friend there and spent 9 days with intense Pilates training and an extensive spa treatments. The Pilates instructor Nok is top, she is tough and caring.
I enjoyed very much the spa menu which kept us "clean" with no Gluten, low sugar and salt!
We are very urban people, but we did not feel the need to go out much and we only went out for a light meal one night. Most of nights just nice to chill out in the sanctuary.
If you are looking for a get away but healthy, meaningful but rewarding, wether is for détresse, detox, yoga or Pilates, this place is highly recommended.
This is not a place for romantic holidays not for family with young kids, but absolutely purposeful health wise.
Bella (TA), April 2017
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!

You will disconnect completely from your daily life in this resort and enjoy difference healthy programs that offers the Absolute Sanctuary , I tried the fasting program for 7 days and the results was amazing .
Fadwa (TA), June 2017
Absolutely beautiful place, full of various treatments and detoxes. Gym, detox, yoga, bootcamp - even mediums that can come in.
Great peace of mind, eat healthy, weight loss and detox place.
I had a foot massage, which involved the whole leg, followed by a neck and shoulder massage, the girls did not speak any english, but then I can hardly speak any thai.
We had a light healthy snack in the restaurant which was absolutely delightful.
They make some brilliant fruit smoothies as well, and the fig balls are gorgeous.
Rooms are beautifully decorated throughout, with a very calm feel about them.

Dear friends, Further to my second fasting at Absolute Sanctuary, I wanted to underline the people who are silent but so essential to your treatments.. Among them I must name Jantarat ple nurse at the detox clinic. She did the necessary treatment with care, respect and kind consideration. I strongly feel that she is an asset to your organization

The Morrocon inspired sanctuary exceeded all the expectations I had heading to Ko Samui. From the staff to the spa to the yoga classes and teachers, it was absolutely fantastic!! The staff around the pool, in the kitchen, at the help desk, in the reception were always smiling and looked very happy. They helped us with any issue we had.
Anjali, May 2017
My boyfriend and I stayed here two times during our stay at Koh Samui. A great resort hidden away from the busy Chaweng where you really can enjoy pure tranquility. The first stay we stayed in the superior room, with beach view - nice room with everything you need.
Klaus A, May 2017
Yoga was the best I've ever done food was incredible ! The staff were very friendly and always up for a talk.. the two health consultants will and janelle are very knowledgable and always had time to talk (even out of consultation hours) which I personally found really helpful! I would highly recommend this place to anybody
Saxon, May 2017
Thank you for your hospitality while I was there 17th to 21st May. It was such an amazing experience that changed my view on diet completely and feels great after the detox program. I truly hope to visit you again.
Yuko Kimura, May 2017
My mother and I had an amazing trip and have been recommending the sanctuary to our friends and family. From the food to the spa and the juice bar to the friendly and helpful staff to the yoga classes, our whole trip was perfect and we thank you all so very much. We both learnt and took on board very valuable knowledge from our experience. We definitely plan to return, but cannot say when just yet. We hope the standards that you provide never slips and maintains itself.
NG & RG, May 2017
The led classes in Ashtanga Yoga given by Kes Kennard at Absolute Sanctuary were very inspiring to me. Kes gave me adjustments I did not have had before. He also explained the reasons to practice this full series completely, the benefits of it and so on. I highly recommend his classes. Furthermore the meals from the Love Kitchen were delicious and the staff very friendly
Koen Westrik, May 2017
After recently running my 5 day retreat at the Absolute Sanctuary Detox & Yoga retreat Centre Koh Samui I highly recommend this retreat Centre for future Yoga teaches wanting to run an International retreat. The peacefulness of the property was divine. The detox services so complimented the Detox Programs. We all left in a natural bliss state. Thank you Absolute Sanctuary for assisting in the Success of my retreat.
Jane Ribinskas, May 2017
I had a wonderful stay at Absolute Sanctuary and look forward to coming back. The service was excellent especially at the Spa. The Yoga was great and the Alister was wonderful.
Michelle Sassoon, May 2017
Being in the wellness industry in Hawaii, I can be a bit 'picky' when it comes to choosing where I want to spend my time. The Absolute Sanctuary with it's deluxe accommodations, 'aloha' staff, and incredible detox program far exceeded any expectations I may have had. I was fortunate to participate in the pre-cleanse, Ultimate 7-day cleanse and the post-cleanse /liver flush for a total of 12 days at Absolute Sanctuary. Not only did I not want to leave, the completion of my very first detox program had me feeling at optimal level with my health, mind and spirit. Will I come back? I am counting the days.

My wife and I recently returned from a 6 week vacation in Thailand. Our 1 week detox fast & cleanse program at the Absolute Sanctuary Spa was the highlight of the entire vacation. We felt like we breezed through the program which included daily colonics, yoga, swimming and massages. It provided an ideal balance of education, effectiveness and comfort. Our Energy levels remained high and our sense of well-being increased daily. We also came away with a wealth of healthy habits & tips, picked up from our daily spa routine, the staff and other guests. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is serious about their long term overall health.
David & Louise Spicer, May 2017
I stayed 8 nights at the Absolute Sanctuary in April, and it was initially a mixed experience that finalised in a total blissful holistic experience. The place is away from beach and centres, so you are 'captive audience' that was also my purpose of my stay, totally away. It's a place for mental and physical wellness.
Sissel Henriett, May 2017
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 travellers.
Ira D, May 2017
We spent a month on Koh Samui and decided the Absolute Sanctuary would be our primary place of practice. You definitely get the most for your money at Absolute. They have great, experienced instructors. Most of our classes were with Jana who is very knowledgeable, professional and a great teacher.
Henrik S, May 2017
Have just returned from a week here having bid for it at an auction. Had some doubts before going but had a wonderful holiday. We were on the spa programme and so could eat all the delicious healthy food...even the carrot cake! The treatments were just great...2 or 3 a day.
