Here's the thing: my husband became very sick on this trip (he came to the island not feeling right), and Mike, the owner, could not have been more calming or compassionate to us. I was beside myself after a few days of ibuprofen and rest didn't work and my husband became delirious with fever. I wish I had reached out earlier. He went way out of his way to make sure we go the medical help we needed. I can't thank him enough.
Of course, I hope this won't happen to you so re the actual resort. I think it's really lovely. The food is totally amazing, especially the curries at dinner, and very fairly priced. It's beautiful walking around the area. The beach is gorgeous and the people watching can't be beat. We were in the Leela House (see pics). I'd say for glampers it's amazing- quite sexy and terrific views. If you don't dig bats or whatever, get one of the a/c rooms. I walked around quite a bit, and they're all good, I think.
It's a great place to spend a few days unwinding, but most of all, you're being looked after by some truly kind people.

Hi Christine - Thanks for the review - but I think you have reviewed the wrong place.

We have no elephants here, lots of choices for lunch and lots of interesting costumes, for sure, but elephants, no!

I heard about this place via word of mouth and came to chill for a few days, ended up spending 6 nights.

The beach and adjacent beaches are wonderful.

Food is great, not too expensive.

Staff are very helpful.

Great place to meet people if travelling solo.

I rented The Sanctuary to host a group of 19 people for 3 weeks. The staff were attentive and friendly and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful location with the beaches, food and atmosphere. Management were responsive to our requests if we required assistance with schedule changes or minor maintenance if we discovered a problem. We have decided to book The Sanctuary to host us for another retreat next year and I would highly recommend The Sanctuary to anyone looking to book a secluded getaway for singles, couples or large groups.

I had an amazing time staying in the Sanctuary. The staff, atmosphere, food and peaceful location made my trip a trip of a lifetime. I had the best stay here while travelling in Thailand and honestly wish I could give it more than 5 stars. Everybody should experience the Sanctuary at least once in their lives! I stayed for one week and could have stayed for 10. Cannot wait to return!!

Room Tip: Ocean view is amazing!
