What Others are Saying...
"Soul Sanctuaries' Joanne guided my planning for a spiritual retreat. She was patient with me as this took months of planning as I wanted it to be perfect. She made different destination recommendations and advised me based on my goals as well as my budget. She checked in with me regularly, up until the trip and even after to see if it had met my expectations.
Out of the options she gave me I settled for Vana Wellness Retreat, in Dehradun, India, for a 7 nights program; which was perfect and exceeded my expectations.
I highly recommend Soul Sanctuaries for anyone planning a Soulful holiday :)

"The trip with you in Vietnam, Cambodia and then Thailand completely exceeded my expectations, it was a truly incredible experience. The experience not only focused on meditation and the opportunity to meet Geshe La, it is important for people to know that it is complemented by the people who are taking the 'Journey to Peace' with you. Each person I met left something important in my adventure, there were people who left a big imprint with which I have created a very deep relationship and which will probably continue for a lifetime. Today I am convinced that life puts us in the places we have to be, with the people we have to be, there is a lot to learn from so many stories from different places of the world."

I spent a week in Bhutan, organised by Soul Sanctuaries. It has been a truly magical experience! Joanne's organisation has been exceptional and the service at the hotel was more than amazing. Every day I was looking forward for dinner, because it was absolutely top notch! I can say I enjoyed everything; the treatments, the location, the service and the daily trips, my gorgeous room... I can recommend this journey to everyone who is looking for an extraordinary trip!

"I can’t even capture in words how absolutely beautiful, inspiring, healing and nurturing the entire journey has been. Truly a dream come true! It’s been such an incredible joy to work with Joanne and Soul Sanctuaries, being guided along the way, it made me feel extremely well taken care off and also secure as a female solo traveler! Everything was perfectly and carefully planned and so thoughtful organized and considered to my needs! I loved truly every moment and wish it never ended :) !! I traveled through Indonesia, Thailand, Bhutan and Cambodia. An absolute highlight was Bhutan. A sacred place on earth with incredible trekking options and ritual ceremonies. Joanne helped to gain access to native healers along the way, which was a truly incredible and life changing experience. I had access to abundance of beauty, culture, healing and spiritual places which was a perfect combination. I would recommend Soul Sanctuaries to anyone in need of a truly unforgettable, rich journey across the treasures of the world! I will keep all the memories very dear in my heart and look forward to plan something magical very soon again! Thank you Joanne, for everything and for healing me with such profound gifts!" love, Selina

We have contacted Soul Sanctuaries with the idea to get a great gift for my mother's upcoming 70th birthday. This was the best decision we could have done. Joanne was beyond exceptional. She gave great recommendations to start with by suggesting tree different options that catered to different needs. We ultimately went for the Four Season Sayan & Jimbaran option (see pictures) and the service was one of the best anyone could wished for. Joanne was coordinating all the communications with the Four Season hotel which made it a seamless experience for my mother. Everything was planned and executed properly which will bring lifetime memories for my mother .
Thanks again Joanne for all the great work and we will be in contact again soon :)

My husband and I did not know what to expect when we came to Spirit Sanctuary in Bhutan. We left with the higher expectations for all other resorts we will ever visit. Attention to detail in customer service, food preparation and overall quality and attentiveness of staff blew us away. We enjoyed daily expert-chef prepared meals, pampering spa treatments, guided hikes and excursions, as well as heated bathroom floors. The staff made it for an excellent and relaxing trip.

The Bali retreat was so amazing and the service from start to end was just perfect. It was the most relaxed I have been in many years and the staff, location, experience was all 100% and beyond incredible. The idea of a 'woman's only' retreat meant we all met other wonderful souls from around the world that you wouldn't normally ever have the chance of meeting. I can't wait to do it again!

“I have just returned from the most perfect Girls’ Trip EVER! Thank you for steering us in the right direction and recognizing exactly what we needed. Our visit to Kamalaya in Thailand could not have been improved at all. We trusted your recommendation, and it was the smartest decision we could have made. CHEERS to an intuitive and informed travel agent!”

"I just wanted to send a quick note letting you know how incredible my trip has been. I was nearly in tears when I left Como Shambhala out of pure joy and appreciation to everyone there for supporting me, in what was a major awakening for me.
From the amazing classes, five-star service, thoughtful conversations with the staff and other guests, energy-shifting treatments and of course, the pure magic of the estate—everything was perfect! It was precisely the type of supportive environment I needed as I ground myself for the next big chapter in my life.
I am also so glad that I got to partake in your Fivelements Day Experience. All three services were magically grounding. And a huge thank you for your help in coordinating an amazing trip and seamless transition between the estate, Fivelements and Uma Canggu. With thanks and gratitude."
