Detox, yoga, fitness, Absolute Sanctuary wellness hotel in Koh Samui offers them all, but where it really excels is in its fitness retreat options. With a dedicated and experienced international team of yoga instructors, guests can undertake a dedicated Absolute Yoga Programme from 3 day or longer to either kick-start or improve and perfect their daily yoga practise. With individually devised schedules, this yoga retreat includes one-on-one sessions where guests can focus on areas of their practise such as improving core strength, getting to grips with inversions, or safely practising back bends. 

Absolute Sanctuary also offers daily group yoga classes which are open to all guests, with options including hot yoga, alignment focused Ashtanga Yoga, fast-paced Vinyasa Yoga, and relaxed Yin Yoga, among others. 

For general fitness, there is the Absolute Be Fit Programme which includes additional cardiovascular and resistance training.
