Destination Detox in Koh Samui Thailand By Travel Host & Lifestyle Expert Linda Cooper

Nestled on a steep hillside inland, about 10 minutes from the coast this well-known retreat haven provided me the perfect holiday detox with its easy-going program of workout sessions, relaxing yoga classes and sumptuous guilt-free food.

The island of Koh Samui is a delicious slice of picturesque paradise located in Thailand, known as a destination hotspot for those who wish to press the reset button and rejuvenate from their busy lives. Since I travel so much, often my nutrition, sleep and exercise go completely off my normal routine so during our recent whirlwind travels through Thailand, I set aside a few days to recharge at Absolute Sanctuary; one of Asia’s top wellness and fitness retreats. Armed with a suitcase of athleisure wear ready to strike my first tree pose, I entered its Moroccan influenced grounds and was welcomed at the first set of colorful stairs by its smiling staff.


Unlike other wellness retreats where leaving the property is frowned upon, at Absolute Sanctuary I was refreshingly encouraged to get out and experience the beauty of the island. With its offered scheduled shuttles to and from a variety of beaches, shopping jaunts and purveying the scene at nearby Fisherman’s Village, its relaxed attitude offered the perfect blend to holiday and recharge at my own pace.
