The Sanctuary Thailand – originally created as a private retreat for friends – playfully nestled in the remote jungle of Haad Tien Bay in 1989, has since opened up to be a world-renowned destination for those wishing to seek “something else” for their Asian holiday experience. It has blossomed into way more than a resort or retreat destination.

People Say

“This place totally lives up to its name, such a sense of peace and harmony. Quite detached from the rest of the island but with little gems (beaches, bars, boogie dens) all within walking/scrambling distance. Incredible team including Tuna and Sam who really made us feel welcome. It makes me so sad to leave, I know I will be back!”
