The last year I’ve been struggling with burn out and lots of stress related health issues. The sanctuary has severely impacted my life by giving me a magical oasis that allowed me to relax and to take care of myself. Their steam room and ice bath has been such an incredible help for me over the past month and I continue to go there as well as to their donation based meditation almost every day in order to regulate my nervous system and heal. Thank you from the depths of my heart for helping me getting better. I am so grateful for everything you offer to this community.
I’ve participated in a retreat at the Sanctuary in Thailand led be Revi. Revital is a wonderful, highly experienced and gifted teacher with magical ability to sense and tailor her practice and teaching to the needs of each individual participant. I enjoyed very much her approach of combining the philosophy of many Eastern schools to achieve a perfect experience for mind, body and spirit. Yoga, Pilates, Dance and self-care techniques blended in a deeply personalised sessions makes the experience invaluable. Her guidance and special techniques related to the female body and needs were unique and an eye opener to me, which I have never experienced in any other Yoga or Pilates class. Revital went beyond the regular curriculum to let us connect with the beauty of the very special location of the retreat: the ocean, sunrises, hiking in the jungle, the full moon and healthy delicious local cuisine were all key ingredients of the experience. I am looking forward to many more retreats to come with Revital! Thank you 🙏
Great hotel with friendly staff, a lot of activities. Accommodating to wishes and requests and an eye for the whole. Slightly off the beaten path, so if you’re looking to relax and let go of the world around you, this is exactly the place to go. Boats cost 300b per person from Haad Rin, as land route is a very tough trek.
El mejor servicio que he visto en un complejo hotelero y restauración. El personal muy profesional, atento, servicial, simpático (Gracias, Mimi, Sam, Tuna) personal de detox.El paraiso! Gracias por esta magnífica experiencia

Response from the owner: Thank you for sharing your review and rating. We hope to see you again soon !
This was one of the best things I ever did in my life. For my body, for my soul, for feeling connected to myself and others.I took part in the 200 hour yoga teacher training offered by the Swara Yoga Academy in the Sanctuary with the best teachers ever - Randall and Freya. From the first moment they made clear: this yoga course is not about maximum performance, acrobatic tricks or competition. It‘s about experiencing yourself, feeling good, gathering more energy than you loose in your daily life.At the same time you can learn challenging yoga poses. They guide you there step by step.In our group we felt like a family and had lots of fun in class. Thank you so much also for this, dear Freya and Randall. I love your sense of humour!And last but not least: the beautiful blue sea, delicious breakfast every day on the beach, the loveliest staff you can imagine in the restaurants and reception and everywhere in the Sanctuary.Just simply a wonderful place to be.I miss you all.
My week at The Sanctuary was truly life changing. Surrounded by the serene beauty of the jungle and sea, I found peace in daily yoga sessions, enjoyed delicious and healthy meals, and connected with the most wonderful people. The attentive staff made my experience even more special, always ready to help and making sure I felt cared for at every moment. It's more than just a retreat.. it's a sanctuary where I rediscovered myself surrounded by nature's embrace and in the process, this place became my home away from home 🙏🏾❤️ Thank you all! And see you later.
I did my Yoga Teacher training with Randall & Freya in March of 20204. It was truly transformational & turning point in my life. A little over a year ago, my physical and mental health were at an all-time low. Yoga, and the incredible guidance provided throughout this program, have been instrumental in my remarkable transformation. I landed at the Sanctuary one year prior to deciding of doing the YTT & the environment, staff, yoga teachers, vibes & food truly helped me gain my health back.The emphasis on progress over perfection resonated deeply with me, creating a supportive and authentic learning environment. This focus allowed me to explore my practice without judgment, building strength and confidence both on and off the mat.I am incredibly grateful for the dedication of the teachers and the healing power of yoga itself. Randall is truly one of the best ad most authentic teachers you will find & his life long dedication to yoga demonstrates it. This program has 100% equipped me with the knowledge and tools to share this transformative practice with others.If you're seeking a truly transformative yoga teacher training experience, look no further.
Stayed in dorm. Avoid Zorba dorm room if possoble. Mung bean curry and french toast favorite dishes at the restaurant.
Every day was a journey of relaxation and personal renewal. From the start you are welcomed by staff and other guests. As a solo traveller I met many lovely people just hanging out which made the days extra special. What could have been a pretentious 'woo woo' fest turned out to be the perfect blend of relaxation, fun, health and hedonisim depending on your needs. The detox Spa runs to a very high standard with an impressive level of expertise for health related issues. I felt fully supported by everyone running the spa and enjoyed the fasting experience along with other guests.The Sanctuary bay is between two other beach bays just a short walk over the hills. Here you will find both chill and party scenes depending on the day of the week with even more options to eat amazing food and indulge your spirit when you feel moved too. I was fortunate enough to visit when one of the original founders Gill had arrived for a few days. Her spirit shone throughout the Sanctuary and I could see why it had become such a legendary (yet almost still secret) place to visit.Suffice to say you will not find another place like this and it's worth staying at least a week if not much more to fully immerse yourself in what the Sanctuary has to offer.
The Sanctuary ist ein Juwel der Insel. Abseits des Trubels und nur mit dem Taxiboot zu erreichen. Wir haben hier bewusst eine Woche gebucht um in dieser wunderschönen, im Dschungel gelegenen Anlage, „runter zu kommen“. Die angebotenen Yoga-Kurse, die Küche und die Wellness Anwendungen sind hochwertig und qualitativ phänomenal. Gleichzeitig ist es die bewusste Imperfektion und die Leichtigkeit, die Freundlichkeit des Personals was es perfekt macht. Wir kommen sicher wieder. Vielen Dank!
Response from the owner: A jewel <3 we love it !!! Thank you for your kind words
This place gives you the feeling of having found another home from the moment you set foot on the bay. You can feel that special people - staff and visitors together - shaped the Sanctuary and its surroundings over the last decades, with a special motivation: building a place to recharge, recover maybe, finding peace. The food is amazing, the staff, the trainers and yoga teachers. And also the people that come here, many since many years. It’s a community.I took part in a 200h yoga teacher training at the Swara Yoga Academy at the Sanctuary guided by Randall o’Leary, and can recommend these four weeks of intensive learning from my heart. Very accessible, a way to deeply reconnect to yourself, the body, mind and especially focusing on the breath. Even if you don’t count yourself as an advanced practitioner you can take part, you will be able to finish the training. Go try :)
excellent location on a remote beach far away from it all yet walking distance to why nam and haad yuan.rooms are great, nothing fancy, had no ac but it was comfortable, clean, with hot water and well shaded by the trees.the restaurant is excellent, great food.
Response from the owner: Thanks for stopping by and sharing :)
This is by far the most magical place I’ve ever been in my life. Truly beautiful. The environment is filled with love and kindness. And the beach is amazing. It’s a very unique place and the scenery, the people, the place it’s just like heaven on earth. I will definitely come back in the future.
It's a beautiful place, with great staff in the most wonderful natural environment. It's not cheap but absolutely worth it! I will be back shortly.
They offer a complete detoxification package for a those who seek to reset.Offside the super busy party places on Ko Phangan.Still fair prices compared to other wellness locations.+ lot's of spiritual and wellbeing workshops to do+ sunrise side beach 🌅+ amazing healthy food+ friendly staff and like-minded peopleWanna come back one day
Response from the owner: Watch the sunrise 🌅 Thanks for your review - we’re smiling ☺️ Looking forward to welcoming you back soon
A true slice of heaven. Amazing bungalows, close to a private beach, friendly and helpful staff, great food, close to hiking areas and also two other beaches. You can easily take a taxi boat to various places on the island.
My favorite beach... Clearest water... nice waves..But the prices are "criminal"high.Money welcome!The bourgoise of alternative Mainstream and Esoterik. I feel uncomfortable if alternative people pay such high prices..2 simple plain eggs 100 baht without anything around is a really arrogant.The others not better...This has nothing to do with Thailand anymore! This is a bubble and the new coloniaslism of Western tourism on higher Level at the most beautyfull places in the world...But the people pay these, and Thai people are excluded .The owners sureley are positive 😂 friendly with such a private goldmine.
I’d like to sincerely thank William, Sam, Min Min and Tuna and the rest of the gang at The Sanctuary for a very lovely and relaxing stay.
Response from the owner: Dear James, thank you for taking the time to reach out and thank our crew - were very pelased to hear you had a lovely relaxing stay - we hope to see you soon
