The intimate resort offers 29 open-walled sanctuary suites, across five room categories. All have views of the Pitons filling the open-air space which would traditionally be a fourth wall.
The Sun, Moon and Star Sanctuary Pool Suites all feature a private infinity pool along with the Galaxy Sanctuary suites that are set at the highest level and enjoy the most outstanding views. The Sky Jacuzzi Suite features a large whirlpool bath but no infinity pool. All rooms include Wi-Fi, ceiling fans, a 24-hour butler service and tea and coffee facilities. The suites, however, deliberately do not provide telephones, televisions, or radios in order to create a true sanctuary environment of complete peace and relaxation. All sanctuaries are furnished with hand-made pieces made from varying tropical wood alongside hand-picked ornate items, so each one feels unique and authentic.
