Raw Fest

Detox & Wellness at the Sanctuary Thailand

Our Raw Fest is designed to inspire you to enjoy the great tastes and health benefits of enzyme-rich, nutritious vegan raw foods. We include coconuts and tropical fruits and are encouraging you to balance your delights with intermittent fasting. We’re offering packages from 3 to 10 day, for you to create the most holistic rejuvenating experience for yourself.

Our Raw Fest is truly a delightful way to cleanse the body. Raw food is naturally rich in enzymes which gives our body a healing flush enabling it to clean out old toxins and waste products. Being in the tropics is a perfect time to explore this diet as we naturally wish to eat lighter meals. Cleansing with raw foods is a relatively easy program as it includes fruits and natural sugars which the other programs suggest we avoid. Many claim that eating raw gives us clearer skin, better nutrition and a lighter sense of being. We support you through combining this Raw Feast with intermittent fasting and a gentle detox program at our Wellness Center.

This is one of the most delightful ways to cleanse the body, feeling light in body and soul.

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 ownerA jewel <3 we love it !!! Thank you for your kind words Tyler BuckleyTyler Buckley ★★★★★ The Sanctuary is and always has been the best wellness centre on Koh Phangan. Excellent services, warm and friendly staff, great rooms for any budget, extensive food options for all dietary requirements, and a location second to none. Thanks for another wondrous stay ❤️Response from the ownerYour words light up our day!It's wonderful to hear how much you appreciate our wellness centre. We can't wait to welcome you back for more wonderful moments! Rosan CruzRosan Cruz ★★★★★ I had an absolutely amazing weeklong experience at The Sanctuary. I booked a 5.5-day detox program. I felt well taken cared of by the staff. They went above and beyond, especially on my fourth day when my energy levels dipped. The nutrition & lifestyle medicine practitioner, Nan, and the entire team were attentive and made sure I had everything I needed to feel revitalized.I particularly enjoyed the variety of spa treatments offered at The Sanctuary. The oil massage, salt scrub, and stomach massage were absolute bliss. The yoga sessions were a fantastic way to start each day.The colonics area at The Sanctuary was clean and well-maintained, providing a comfortable and hygienic space. This aspect added to the overall positive experience, making the detox process smoother and more convenient.I also highly recommend exploring the different healing practitioners available: breath work workshop, and body work sessions, yin yoga.Overall, my 5.5-day detox at The Sanctuary was an exceptional self-care journey. I couldn't be happier with the level of care and attention I received during my stay. Maybe next time I’ll do ten days.Note: go early so you can enjoy Sanctuary’s restaurant. Also try the restaurants nearby: vegan fare at WayNam beach, the red snapper at Bambu Hut, local fare at Love Lips.Daniel LessonsDaniel Lessons ★★★★★ I would say this is one of the most special places I’ve ever visited. The setting is absolutely spectacular. The staff are amazing - so kind, friendly and personable, and just great to hang and chat with. Nan in the wellness centre is unbelievable - she’s kind, incredibly smart, and will answer any questions and help you reach any health goals. Nolan the GM is a legend - lovely guy that makes you feel right at home. Then there’s Cav - he will ensure you’re laughing and having a good time the whole time you’re here - total legend. Nina runs the gym, and it does the best workouts - I wish I had her as my personal trainer forever - she will make you work, but gives you so much kind and warm encouragement. Tash is a lovely Brit, who will have nice little chats and always make sure you’re having a good time, Tuna in the office is a legend, William and Sammy in restaurant are lovely, funny, cool people. The facilities are fantastic - steam room, infrared sauna, movement room, beautiful yoga spots, meditation, healers, massages, facials and more. Food is amazing as well. This is one special place. The only issue, is you might not want to ever leave, and it’s not uncommon for people to stay longer. If you come, you won’t regret it. It’s the best place I’ve ever found.Response from the ownerWow, reading your review put the biggest smile on our faces! 😄 We're beyond thrilled that you found our place so special and unforgettable. It means the world to us that our team, from Nan and Nolan to Kav, Nina, Tash, Tuna, William, and Sammy, left such a positive mark on your stay.Knowing you enjoyed the wellness center, gym, and all the little things in between makes our efforts truly worth it. And hey, if you ever decide to stay forever, we won't complain! 😉Thanks a million for sharing your thoughts. We can't wait to have you back whenever you're ready for another round of good times and relaxation. Jane FischerJane Fischer ★★★★★ The Sanctuary lives up to its name. There are no road vehicles (just boat taxis). We love the swimming at Haad Thien beach, the delicious and healthy food, detoxing with assistance of the expert staff at The Wellness Centre, massages and saunas at the Spa, practicing yoga and Tai Chi with excellent teachers and the walks in the jungles. We recently enjoyed our 4th visit to The Sanctuary. The staff at the resort’s reception expertly handled all our concerns and needs. We stayed 11 unforgettable nights in the Ocean View House. The house has a circular view facing the sunrise/moonrise and Koh Phanghan jungle. We look forward to more stays in this house.Response from the ownerThank you for your glowing review! We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay at The Sanctuary. Looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Chris SmithChris Smith ★★★★★ 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.Debi HollingworthDebi Hollingworth ★★★★★ My partner brought me here as he had visited 14 years ago and it didn’t disappoint. We arrived by longboat straight onto the beach. The accommodation was great and adequate for our needs. The views were amazing but more than that the people were so accommodating. Special thanks for Tuna for sorting our accommodation needs and also to Nee for supporting us through our detox.We did a 7.5 day detox and stayed for a total of 18 days. The detox package was well supported and Nam seemed very knowledgeable. We met a great bunch of people also detoxing which was a great support. The yoga also included was excellent with Sophie and Chris.The food in the restaurant is delicious and fully supports post detox eating. William always had a welcoming smile and can do attitude.The 2 surrounding bays are also good with additional restaurants.I would highly recommend this place for either detox or yoga retreat or just to stay as it is idyllicTyler BuckleyTyler Buckley ★★★★★ The Sanctuary is and always has been the best wellness centre on Koh Phangan.

Melina MeticulousMelina Meticulous ★★★★★ 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.Guy BoyanguGuy Boyangu ★★★★★ 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 ownerThanks for stopping by and sharing :) Melina MeticulousMelina Meticulous ★★★★★ The last year I’ve been struggling with burn out and lots of stress related health issues.
