absolute sanctuary

7 nights from £1,160 absolute sanctuary koh samui

Absolute Sanctuary offers excellent healthy food, lux spa treatments and yoga in a peaceful away-from-it all setting. World class experiences at excellent prices.

Once you’ve adjusted to the Morocco-inspired design, you’ll begin to relax and enjoy the location for all it offers – yoga studios with tropical vistas through to delicious healthy thai spa cuisine, a nurturing spa, beautiful pool and delightful staff .

All 38 bedrooms are stylish, modern and comfortable –with soft tones and touches – they all have balconies looking down onto the vast central pool where bodies relax after challenging yoga or deep massage.

There are various packages to choose from – an intensive yoga break, a fitness-focussed holiday, an anti-stress and burnout package or a full-on detox.  Yoga is a major feature of the resort with over 25 classes a week to choose from led by top international teachers. All programmes include a host of spa treatments and therapies and offer great value. We recommend spending many blissed out hours at the delightful spa and making the most of the venue’s complementary transfers to local Chaweng and Cheong Mon beaches on Koh Samui

The ‘Love Kitchen’ food is light, clean and organic where possible. It’s truly delicious, looks beautiful and caters for detoxers, vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Every mouthful is bursting with flavour, colour and nutrients and there’s an amazing menu of fresh juices and smoothies.

This property is one of our featured best value spa & wellness resorts


  • A very high standard of yoga tuition. Absolute Sanctuary’s owners also run 8 yoga centres in Thailand and 3 in Singapore, so they know more than a thing or two about yoga, and have access to excellent yoga instructors
  • Excellent value for money given the quality of spa, food and yoga on hand


  • It’s not right on the beach, but the hotel offers regular complimentary transfers to local beaches at certain times every day
  • The Morocco-inspired design seems somewhat out of place to us - but having said that, the designs are sleek, colourful and very comfortable

Healthy Traveller Tip

I enjoyed a week of raw food while I stayed there, and would highly recommend trying at least a day ‘raw’. The raw creations are beautiful, delicious and satisfying… as are the fresh juices and smoothies available at the pool.
