Sen Wellness Sanctuary
Sen Wellness Sanctuary offers a life enhancing wellness experience in a stylish and ethical wellness retreat next to Rekawa Beach on the south coast of Sri Lanka. Enjoy a complete mind, body, and soul experience with expertly crafted wellness programmes according to your specific needs with the help of world-class osteopaths and yoga teachers as well as local therapists, skilful chefs and knowledgeable Ayurvedic doctor’s.
The retreat is simple and peaceful with the Yoga Shala overlooking the lush treetops. The expansive space is used for yoga classes, group healing and dance and music workshops.
Enjoy Ayurvedic meals with home-style Sri Lankan influence prepared by a local chef with fresh, seasonal ingredients and spices bought from the local market and served buffet-style at a communal dining table. The menu is mainly vegetarian with occasional locally sourced fish and tailored accordingly with Ayurvedic principles.
There aren’t any spa facilities as such. All the Ayurvedic treatments take place in the treatment rooms and all begin with a personalised programme from the in-house Ayurvedic doctor to determine your treatment plan.
Good to know
The Sanctuary has been awarded “One of the top 20 yoga retreats in the world” by The Times.
Wi-Fi is only available in common areas - 1 hour at breakfast time at dinner time – in line with the calming environment at The Sanctuary.
Sea is often choppy so swimming in the sea isn’t guaranteed.
Sen Wellness Sanctuary is situated on Sri Lanka’s southern coastline, near the towns of Netolpitiya and Tangalle. In keeping with their philosophy that nature is the best healer, the team has designed The Sanctuary to function in harmony with its surroundings. It is located between pristine National Park and Rekawa Beach, a protected turtle nesting beach.

The 8 low key, yet luxury cabanas sleep up to 16 people, designed by Brazilian-American architect Adriana Arbex to mimic the natural shape of the conical shell to draw earth energy up from the land to be experienced by guests whilst staying in the rooms. Each of the twin and king-size rooms are carefully designed to allow natural ventilation avoiding the need for air-conditioning; thanks to the beachside location the resort is naturally cool. The bathrooms are open to the elements so guests can experience a shower whilst star gazing.
