Absolute Sanctuary is a great place to stay at if you are considering a vacation to relax and rejuvenate and get your health on the right track. You can participate in yoga classes, Pilates or do your own workout at the small but fully equipped gym. The Love Kitchen provides a wide range of healthy choices. You can detox or just eat healthy. I loved Absolute Sanctuary and would definitely go there again.

I booked a modified detox course and additional days to allow myself time to really take advantage of all the good things I had done to my body and mind. The accommodation is fantastic and I was lucky to be upgraded to a wonderful room with huge bath and lounge area for my stay. The restaurant is outstanding, some of the best food I've eaten anywhere and given it was raw and all natural is amazing. Love restaurant really does rock. The juices and the pampering were another fantastic treat. Massages were excellent, the spa itself beautiful and the staff super friendly and skilled. The modified detox is less strict and doesn't have as many colonist and this suited me very well as I was new to detoxing. It was wonderfully quiet and largely when I was there female which I very much appreciated as the environment was non threatening and warm and as a solo traveler this was a great experience. I will be going back. If there is only one change to be made, it would be to have a slightly more receptive staff at reception and someone who can liaise between the spa, restaurant and other elements of the resort. I spoke with the staff about this and they were very receptive. Look forward to coming back.
