Important Information

Bangkok Protests

With the ongoing protests in Bangkok we wanted to reassure our incoming guests and those considering booking over the coming few months that the protests have limited effects in Bangkok though we would advise avoiding Bangkok if you can.
The airports are open and fully functioning.
the protests are having NO effect on island life :- we suggest simply booking straight through Koh Samui and come to the beach where life continues in its usual beautiful way.

Children at The Sanctuary

Most people at the sanctuary are adults on a personal healing / health program. We try to create an environment that is peaceful and chilled for all & while, we try to cater for all, we are an adults orientated resort.

Credit Cards at The Sanctuary

We are very sorry that, due to the fact we do not have a direct telephone and electricity lines we are unable to process credit cards. ATM and bank facilities are available in Had Rin town. We can offer exchange rates on most currencies. Read More >>
