This is my second trip to absolute the first 4 years ago. The program was great and I achieved my goal s but I was a little disappointed at the lack of variety on the living food menu. There are a tasty variety of raw food recipies out there Would be nice to see a new menu .

I really enjoyed my stay at absolute sanctuary. It is a good place to relax, Nice pool and the healthy food offered is amazing. I stayed for the 5-day yoga retreat - The teachers were really great, but the yoga schedule is a bit disappointing, particularly on weekends
