Frequently Asked Questions

About Detox Holiday Retreat at the Sanctuary Thailand

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY FAST?

For optimal results from the program, we suggest reducing your caffeine intake, particularly coffee and black tea, to lighter options such as green tea or herbal tea at least 3-5 days prior to your arrival. Additionally, we recommend incorporating fiber-rich foods like vegetables and fruits as your main dish. And limiting your protein intake to a small portion on the side. Furthermore, it is advisable to avoid consuming simple carbohydrates like white flour, white rice, alcohol, and dried fruits.

WHAT IS A COLONIC?

Colonic, also known as colonic irrigation, involves the infusion of water or other liquids into the rectum to flush out the colon. Advocates of the practice believe that it can improve digestive health and overall well-being. Prior to the procedure, a wellness consultant will typically conduct a consultation. Which will ask about your medical history and help complete wellness summary forms.

ARE YOUR COLONICS ADMINISTERED BY SOMEONE ELSE

At our facility, we firmly believe that the colonic process is a personal one, which is why we require our clients to self-administer their colonics. However, rest assured that we provide detailed instructions on how to do it correctly, ensuring that you feel confident and comfortable throughout the process.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FAST, A CLEANSE AND A DETOX?

The terms “detox” and “cleanse” refer to dietary and lifestyle practices that help remove toxins or impurities from the body actively.

A detox program involves a short-term dietary plan that aims to eliminate toxins from the body, usually through fasting, juicing and supplements. The primary goal of a detox program is to rid the body of accumulated toxins and reestablish balance in the body’s systems actively.

On the other hand, a cleanse is similar to a detox but usually refers to a more long-term and sustainable approach to a healthy lifestyle. Cleanses typically involve making dietary and lifestyle changes that support the body’s natural detoxification processes. Such as eating a balanced, nutrient-dense diet, staying hydrated, and engaging in regular exercise.

I AM CONFUSED ABOUT THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF DETOXES YOU OFFER

Detox Retreat Holiday, available in various lengths ranging from 3.5 to 10.5 days. For an even more personalized experience, you can add special overlays to your program for only 700 baht per day.

If you’re looking for a more gentle approach, try our Gentle Cleanse program. It includes one meal per day and doesn’t involve colonics. As with our Detox program, you can also add overlays to tailor your experience.

Introducing our latest offer, Balance provides delicious and healthy meals from our cleanse menu that are tailored to your body’s specific nutrient needs. We offer keto, vegan, and pescetarian options, and all our meals are gluten-free, dairy-free, and free of refined sugar.

IS ACCOMMODATION INCLUDED IN MY DETOX?

We offer accommodation in all-inclusive detox packages.  See accommodation options and prices

DO YOU GET TO EAT DURING OUR DETOX PROGRAM?

Our signature Detox program does not involve eating but instead provides fiber-rich drinks, juice, herbal elixirs, and supplements. However, you can enjoy a delicious vegetable broth in the evenings as a supplement to your cleanse.

If you’re looking for a more lenient approach, our Gentle Cleanse program allows for one meal per day.

Alternatively, our “Balance” program involves eating a standard amount of food to support your body’s natural detoxification processes.

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 :)
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
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.
Response from the owner: Dear Chris,We're so glad the Sanctuary provided you with a haven of happiness. Knowing you enjoyed your stay brings a sense of peace to our hearts. We sincerely hope to have the honor of hosting you again someday.Nolan
A big thanks to Nan, Bone, Ann and the wellness team. I have just returned home after a 10 day fast at the Sanctuary and feel great. A great choice for anyone looking for a kick start for a healthy reset.

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.
