The Sen Wellness Sanctuary is a small, peaceful and modest retreat in a nature reserve set between a lagoon and the ocean in the south of Sri Lanka.

The eclectic and fascinating selection of books available are perfect to fill your time between yoga, treatments and walks on the beach. You’ll be encouraged to put away your devices as much as possible and allow for a digital detox too.

Our team of world-class osteopaths and yoga teachers as well as local therapists, skilful chefs and knowledgeable Ayurvedic doctor’s wellness philosophy is to support all aspects of our guests, reminding the physical/mental/emotional/spiritual body to live in harmony as a whole. The Sanctuary programs are an integrative system of healing that blends advanced scientific principles of the west and ancient wisdom of the east. By treating each individual as a whole, the necessary changes can be made and long lasting results can be created.

We tailor our retreats to your needs, allowing you to have more control over how you enjoy your time. We offer twice daily yoga, meditation, Ayurvedic consultations and treatments, as well as osteopathy.

Yoga

We hand pick the best international yoga teachers for Breath of Life and offer twice daily classes. Styles vary from kundalini, vinyasa, restorative yoga and yin. We are known for building classes around the wants and needs of our guests, but morning classes tend to be more energetic, with more meditative classes being the evening norm.

Cuisine

Meals at the sanctuary are genuinely healthy, in keeping with Ayuverdic principles and delicious. A mostly vegetarian offering, the dairy and wheat free menu enables you to transform your body from the inside during your stay. Guest leave feeling lighter and clearer from the effects of the diet, the teas and the fresh coconut juice served daily. We serve fresh, locally sourced ingredients transformed into delicious Sri Lankan meals. Our very sociable meal-times at Breath of Life are a time to share experiences and bask in each others company while enjoying exceptional Ayurvedic food. We also offer cooking master classes.

Accommodation

The Sanctuary has eight eco-cabanas that have been designed to co-exist harmoniously with the natural environment around them. Set along a jungle path next to a lagoon these rooms offer guests comfortable surroundings with treetop or jungle views.

There are also four rooms in the main building that share two bathrooms between them. These rooms are set around the central fountain of the main space on an upper floor and offer a more traditional room setting than the Cabana’s.Our low-key luxury cabanas are quietly tucked away in a stunning area of mangrove forest on a glorious stretch of golden sand beach. The lagoon and turtle nesting site make it a magical, tranquil escape.

Optional activities

* Extra holistic treatments from a selection of visiting practitioners
* Tours to Kandy
* Whale watching
* Trips to Galle

What past guests have said

“We had an incredible 5 days at Sen Wellness in their beautifully designed cabana’s after exploring the north of the island. The contrast of so much empty beach and lagoon was a perfect end to our Sri Lanka experience. Our days started with sunrise yoga, fresh coconut and traditional breakfast before beginning our ayurvedic treatments. The massage treatments were wonderful. We couldn’t have felt any healthier or happier or more rested. The added bonus of seeing the giant green sea turtles making their journey up the beach to lay their precious eggs was really special! Definitely planning another trip.” N. Beckwith

“We planned to go for three days and ended up staying a week. Location is beautiful with the lake on one side and the beach on the other. Food is excellent, real mix of spices and fresh ingredients. The yoga on the beach as the sun rose is a special memory. Go!” J. Herbertson

“What an amazing place and experience! Tired from busy city life, a week at the Sanctuary and in the care of the wonderful people there was the perfect remedy. We left with mind decluttered and body purring. The space they have created is stunning and so tranquil. All of the treatments were fantastic and the food was some of the best we had in Sri Lanka – absolutely delicious! As others have mentioned, yoga on a deserted beach to welcome the morning sun every day was truly memorable. Highly recommend the Sanctuary experience and can’t wait to go back.” L. Ko
