What we say: 3.5 stars

Operating since 1992, The Sanctuary is responsible for the fasting and detox purification craze that dominates this beach and has seeped to other parts of the island. This is a very cosy place to stay with a wonderful international restaurant set right on the beach. Tthe restaurant is outstanding, with service to match. The accommodations range from stilted Thai style thatch roof bungalows around a garden to hillside bamboo huts and dorm rooms and a concrete megaplex with lovely plant-strung lattice work and private patios with fans. The private rooms, even the most basic, are comfortable and well-kept. Besides the rooms, the real draw here is the one- to seven-day cleansing and detox regimes, including fasting, yoga and meditation, which are all administered via the Wellness Centre nextdoor -- a great place for detoxing run by the inimitable, hard-working Moon.
