Sanctuary – A place of refuge or safety. Seek out our Sanctuary of wellbeing surrounded by nature and spirituality.

The Sanctuary is a place to simply ‘be’. Reconnect and explore yourself thoughtfully and energetically. Think of us as your recharging point on your journey. It’s amazing what a little madness and a lot of magic can do! The Sanctuary aims to provide a unique and enriching experience, fuelled by magical people, healing opportunities and a beautiful, restful setting. Through our personal and well thought out menu to our Wellness Centre, to the Spa; we always have our minds on self-care, comfort and harmony. We work to balance the body, mind and soul, with daily and diverse yoga classes and a weekly changing schedule of workshops and talks from our amazing healers. All this heaven kept safe by the mystical Thai sea. Dive deeper into self-awareness and fun with a retreat like no other. Welcome to your home away from home. Let us and the bay look after you.

We are located on Koh Phangan Island, tucked away on the remote beach of Haad Tien. Named after the local Tien trees that grow along our beach line. These trees are hundreds of years old and said to hold healing properties. They connect the land and sea, offering protection, luck and growth. Our living jungle juxtaposes the concrete of the modern world. This jungle breathes and sighs. Just like the water it will hold you safe in its arms. Take your time here to watch and listen, you will be rewarded. The sea here can be calm and crystal clear, or powerful and raw; depending on the time of year. But always cleansing, always vibrant and always watching over us with a deep turquoise gaze.

LOST” By David Wagoner (1999)
Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here, And you must treat it as a powerful stranger, Must ask permission to know it and be known. The forest breathes. Listen. It answers, I have made this place around you. If you leave it, you may come back again, saying Here. No two trees are the same to Raven. No two branches are the same to Wren. If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you, You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows Where you are. You must let it find you.

Our resort is built on ancient granite quartz crystals. The ocean tumbled granite is unique, combining both the elements of water and earth, flowing yet rooted, emotions and practicality mixing. The granite grounds us and keeps us focused whilst allowing us to flow and overcome obstacles. You cannot help but be embraced by this energy.

The staff here are a wonderful mix of Thai, Karen refugees from the North of Thailand and Burmese migrant workers. Our Sanctuary Family is diverse but we all have our home in the bay in common. The Sanctuary has been a small family run business since 1991; welcoming all who make it to our remote bay with open arms. Recently our waters have been embracing more and more people through word of mouth, social media and some lovely journalistic pieces we’re rather proud of. This is a place where staff and guests become friends and where friends reunite year after year. Once you are a ‘bay person’ you are part of our community for life. No matter where you are from, what you do, or who you are – we all dance to the same rhythm. Come with an open heart and mind and see the magic for yourself!

Nat Revie
One of the best places on the planet to rest, rejuvenate and recharge. Every time I leave I am so filled with gratitude that this magical place exists. The food, vibe, beautiful jungle, treatments, yoga and incredible people make it, quite simply, heaven on earth ?

A heavenly home away from home, where all your troubles will melt away, and the magical beaches, healers and beauty of Mother Nature will nourish and nudge you into alignment with what's really true for you.

How to reach The Sanctuary Thailand

By Plane:

The most direct way to get Ko Phangan is to fly from Bangkok to Koh Samui Island with Bangkok Air. Thai Air also flies to Koh Samui so check out their offers too. Note that Bangkok Air has a very flexible ‘change your ticket’ policy and they have 20 flights a day to and from the islands.

By Boat:

Koh Phangan island is easily accessible by boat from several places in southern Thailand. Most boats arrive on Koh Phangan at one of two towns, Thong Sala or Haad Rin. If your boat lands in Thong Sala, go to Haad Rin town via taxi truck (20 minutes, 100 baht per person), where you can get a car taxi, or boat taxi, to Haad Tien, home of the Sanctuary.

From Koh Samui:

The easiest way to get to The Sanctuary, between mid April to late October, is on the Thong Nai Pan ferry boat. This ferry departs from Mae Nam town (not the pier) on Koh Samui every day at 12 noon and brings you directly to Haad Tien (get off at the second stop Haad Tien). The journey is approx one hour.
Mae Nam is about 45 minutes by taxi from Samui Airport.
