Absolutely Sanctuary is a wonderful place, if you want to pamper yourself for a few days – but it is not cheap in my opinion. I joined a 5-day detox program at Absolute Sanctuary in July and really enjoyed it. The property is lovely with a big pool and a beautiful view of the sea (although, as has been mentioned...

I travel a lot, and have never felt compelled to write a review of a hotel until now. I have stayed at Absolute Sanctury several times, and it really is an absolute sanctury.
