I thought i'd write this review to update the review page and because i nearly didnt go to the Sanctuary because of some bad reviews. Not sure what those people where expecting who thought it was too basic. The true beauty of the resort is the open flow of the cabins and bungalows high up on the hill and amonst the trees. The restauant is well staffed, they appear happy and its a great healthy menu. I used the spa everyday and had great treatments by the beautiul ladies. The yoga and pilates is very professional with individual guidence when needed. I spoke with the manager this morning on my departure, who wished me well and thanked me for my stay, he seemed like a nice bloke and nothing of what a couple of the reviews labled him as. If you are looking to relax, have some great spa treatment, do some yoga, be with nature with great beach views and hang out with friendly people this is the place. If your looking for ritzy 5 star accommadation with other boring tourists stay by your pool in Samui.
