Great place to unwind, relax and focus on wellbeing!”
The meditation, yoga and Pilates reformer classes were great. Spa treatments were very good and I was impressed with the body scrub and multiple massages I had. The therapists I encountered were well trained and did a wonderful job. I personally didn't do any of the detox programmes but chose to book classes and treatments separately to my accommodation which worked out surprisingly affordable. Room wasn't flash but still very nice and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone needing some real rest and relaxation.

Good if you want to be away from everythib”
The location isn't really near any of the action, which I guess makes sense with the name absolute sanctuary. The two issues we had were that the steam room was broken during our entire trip and they served us a dish with nuts even though we told them my wife is allergic.

Relaxing, Helping and Caring atmosphere”
It was a get away trip for me, alone.
The staffs are very nice and friendly. The food was GREAT! Healthy Yet Delish!!
They are very caring. From the phone, Khun Jeejee assisted with all information and sent confirmation and detail via email to arrange the airport transfer. Moreover, Khun Rose assisted my boyfriend to manage to surprise me for some packages offered there. Khun Ta and Khun Phai, plus all the Guy Conciege are very helpful and informative of Samui.
At Love Kitchen, the Man Manager is very nice and carried the tray of food and dessert for room service for me by himself!
Plus the Woman Manager is very nice. Though some improvement on the waiting times might be great.
The Juice Bar guy (who speaks Thai quite fast) whom I called at night time, also delivered me the menu and waited for me to order in front of my room; and came back with what I ordered. (I apologize that I couldn't remember all the names)
Jana, the yoga teacher is very caring and professional; I enjoyed her Restorative and Yin Yoga classes.
Marco also is very energetic and caring during his Sunrise Walk and Aqua Power class.
Kru Nok, the pilates teacher, offered great pilates reformer classes and possesses proficient English.
The free workshops they have in which I attended; William: Ego and Enneagram and also Alena's Chakra Balance Therapy are the introduction BUT still very informative and knowledgeable. I was very glad I had chances to attend.
They also offer free rides to Cheong Mon Beach and Central Festival (Chaweang Beach) 3 times each, per day that you can book and enjoy the town!
It was a very exceptional peaceful and lovely 4D3N time for me. Definitely, will come back!

Sanctuary on the hillside...”
I came from a different fitness retreat on the island. The staff at Absolute were MUCH friendlier than the place I was at before.
I didn't sign up for the pilates or fitness programs but they did have a gym where I spent some time and a couple of times a week they offer a free program - I took a thai class, towel folding class and a kickboxing class.
I heard from other guests that their fitness classes were great.
I found their restaurant had a lot of western options - if you like that sort of thing. Their juices were delicious.
Holistic and aromatic aura and mature patrons who respect everyone's privacy, share facilities without major complaint. Location is away from beach or shopping areas, GREAT! Only a short taxi ride away, keeps the screaming, yelling, dirty and drunken or smoking kids and adult away! Food healthy, and most personal are trained well in customer service. Therapy and exercise packages PRICEY and NOT refundable/transferable, Wish they made that clear in orientation to hotel. Best check that ALL ACCOUNTABLE items are made clear when you check in, had a "misunderstanding" about a beach bag we never saw. Overall, a wonderful quiet place to relax, rejunvinate and receive holistic therapy. Massages are MUCH CHEAPER elsewhere and the Execise room a closet. But enjoyed my stay and will recommend for mature patrons wanting a VERY clean place to relax. Pool GREAT!!!
My experience tells you to book the accommodation for Absolute Sanctuary by Agoda. As I arrived at Absolute Sanctuary - as the room was ready - I was surprised because I got a Suite, an upgrade! If you want book a special Therapy or private yoga lessons ask direct to the Therapist and yoga teacher. They know better say have space in time to do this. My Therapies and private yoga were great! The food in the restaurant is very delicate, they are serving quality healthy food, it's a good place if you have gluten sensitives. Minus of my experience is that not all of the young staff you can meet at the reception too aren't well educated. I would like to come back to Absolute Sanctuary.
I have stayed there 4 times now and I always leave feeling fantastic! They do run a professional detox programme, but it is also nice to just stay and relax by the pool, get massages and do yoga. The food is fantastic especially if you have gluten and diary sensitivities.

A real disappointment and rip-off”
Pilates/Yoga classes, pool, restaurant
The staff at reception, in bookings and a few in the wellness office were inattentive, would nod when they didn't understand the requests made in full and wouldn't demonstrate accountability. It seems there was no common sense and initiative and many of the guests commented on inflexibility and poor communication when I was there. This started right from the booking of the detox program and second week's stay at absolute on a continuing health program. When I was due to check in to my room just before starting the second week of my program, the manager gave the go=ahead to eject my suitcases from the room in the afternoon because they hadn't received payment! I can't believe how unceremonious these people are and money-obsessed. You don't mistreat a client that way when they've been paying for a week-long program already! Too many issues to list, but it was a stressful, insulting, frustrating and wasted time over there. Only one of the supervisors was decent and tried to make amends, but most of the staff were making fun of these situations and the majority didn't care to respect my limits for patience and tolerance at every ineptitude that arose since day 2 through the first week and again right at the end of my 2nd week. Never staying here again despite the restaurant serving quality healthy food and the juice bar staff being helpful, easy-going and friendly. The resident was kind to give me chiropractic adjustments during my initial consult and the trainers are all nice and competent, but the management's focus on money and complete disregard for guests being compromised is just inappropriate and ridiculous.

Amazing detox hotel”
Great yoga, juice fasts, raw food, spa treatments, colonics
A beautiful hideaway which is amazing for a detox. The staff are wonderful and all the treatments amazing. I would not recommend if you are not on holiday to detox though.

Great hotel if you need a healthy break”
Friendly staff, fantastic food
This is not a place for everyone as it is health-oriented - no smoking or alcohol on the premises. If you want to do a detox and drink healthy juices, do yoga, and get massages, this is the place for you. I've gone twice now and would easily go again in the future. The staff is all very thoughtful and sweet and the vibe of the whole place is almost otherworldly. Only complaint is that going back to the "real world" is a little bit of a shock to the system! Even if you don't like "healthy" or vegetarian food, you'll like what they serve you here - it's fantastic and very fresh. Enjoy the coconut water straight from the coconut!

Ok hotel but far from the beach- stay at the W ”
Good yoga classes
It was an ok stay upon arrival but there was a mistake with our room right away which was taken care off only because I was very determined. We had some incidents in the restaurant that included
rather large bugs in the food. They did try to take care off us by offering massages but we were at the end of our trip so we couldn't even take advantage of them.
We also overheard another couple receiving massages as well- seems to be a common
practice to hand out massages for mistakes. The only thing you have to make sure of that you have enough staff to attend to these massages!!!!!
The W hotel is amazing and highly recommendable!!!!!!
