The place could be very beautiful but it seems very un-loved. Public places were scruffy, service was slow, and our rooms were not very clean. Such a shame because it has huge potential and in a lovely quiet location.

The resort is in quiet area, a short tut tuk ride ($1) from town with spacious villas in a lovely garden setting. The staff were ever smiling, discreet and offered great tours around the local area. The restaurant supplied good basic food.

Quiet and relaxing. Beautiful spacious rooms with bath and shower. Beautifully kept and clean. Great service with a simple restaurant and bar. Peaceful place to chill out. The staff can arrange all your local tours and Tuk Tuk & boat trips. About 1km to town center or $1 dollar Tuk Tuk ride. We enjoyed our stay.

You would think that if you have seen one "Bungalows-Villa," which are all throughout Asia, you have seen them all. They do have the same setup: a hidden entrance followed by forest-like greenery (thanks to the abundance of rainwater), and then your room appears like a deja vu with the only difference being whether it is closer to the swimming...

Sanctuary Villa is really lovely. The rooms are separate bungalows set in lush garden setting. It is not too far from town (an easy walk). The staff are wonderful and the rooms are so comfortable.
