I was on a 5 days / 6 nights "be fit" program which was great! The food was excellent and the yoga and personal trainers too. The entire staff was very friendly. The only thing I could say, is, if your program has not started yet- I had it this on my first day when I arrived - you need...

I recently did the 5-day Pilates bootcamp at Absolute Sanctuary. This was 2 reformer classes a day. The classes were great and intense. Best part for me was the instructor, Sari. She gave a lot of attention to the students to ensure that the body alignment was correct. She gave clear instructions which made it easy to follow. Sari is...

I went to Absolute Sanctuary for a "de-stress" 9 day stay. Overall it delivered that for me. Lots of pampering and sitting by the pool. The accommodation itself was less than what I was expecting. My room was painted in dark colors which made it feel small and a little depressing - but I guess it gets you out of...

Fabulous programs for detox, fitness or burn out recovery and yoga/pilates.This is a health retreat, not a regular hotel.

Don't stay in this Hotel unless you're ok with putting your poo and wee paper in your waste paper bin in your bathroom. How unhygienic. Disgusting!! No Sewerage Website looks amazing but no mention of sewerage issue Food extremely ordinary as well. Instructors not professional enough. Don't even ask if you have ailments or are pregnant. Go to Kamalaya instead
