CABANA

Fall asleep to the sound of the sea, in one of Sen Wellness’s beautiful Cabanas.

Suspended walkways through the Sri Lankan wildlife will lead you to the sanctuary’s luxury Cabanas. Sleeping up to 16 guests, each of the twin and king-size rooms are designed to mimic the natural shape of a shell - connecting the spaces with the ocean they lie next to. Facing the lagoon, with views over the treetops, everything about Sen Wellness’s rooms encourages a deep connection with nature. The en-suite bathrooms are open-air, so you can watch the stars from the shower - and each room is equipped with a ceiling fan.

The resort encourages a digital detox as part of its stay, so WiFi is only available in the resort’s reception area.

Locally sourced food, enjoyed together as a community.

Food at the sanctuary is authentically Sri Lankan, with a buffet of primarily vegetarian options on offer – along with the occasional freshly-caught fish.

Each meal is prepared with love and care, following Ayurvedic principles, and enjoyed in a communal environment. The resort also offers cooking classes two afternoons a week, so you can keep enjoying delicious and nutritious food long after your stay.

As part of their mission to encourage a healthy lifestyle, alcohol isn’t served at the sanctuary. Instead, you’ll sip on fresh water, herbal tea, or a King coconut.

Whatever your dietary requirements may be, let the retreat know, and they’ll make sure you’re catered for.

Welcome to Tangalle, Sri Lanka.

Sen Wellness Sanctuary is based half an hour’s drive from Tangalle. The town is known for its watersports and outdoor adventures, as well as its delicious food markets and gorgeous scenery.

Nestled between a lagoon and the ocean, on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, lies the sanctuary itself – surrounded by the lush nature of a National Park.

Part of the sanctuary is a protected turtle nesting beach, with the sandy golden shore just a stone’s throw away.

With stylish architecture, quiet communal spaces, and the sound of the waves a constant soothing soundtrack, Sen Wellness Sanctuary has been designed to work in total harmony with its beautiful Sri Lankan surroundings.

Sen Wellness Sanctuary see themselves as guardians of the beautiful place they live.

The resort has pledged to protect the area’s natural habitat, setting up a protection programme for the beautiful lagoon – and helping educate the local community on the importance of looking after the environment.

Community partnerships

They’ve also started the Sen Wellness Foundation – a charitable organisation, working to benefit the local communities of Rekawa and Tangalle. The foundation has created new possibilities and growth for the communities, with several projects on-the-go with the local school for the blind.

The sanctuary hope to inspire their guests to engage with their health, wellbeing, and educational projects – making caring for the community and environment our collective responsibility.

Sen Wellness Sanctuary is simply magical. So much of it was perfect: The food, the space, the nature, the yoga, the turtles, the Ayurvedic treatments, the rooms…but our favourite? The warm, genuine, and extremely gracious staff. What a wonderful experience, never to be forgotten. Many thanks Sen Wellness team!

I had a fantastic, enlightening time on the Breath of Life retreat. As well as experiencing the energising powers of kundalini yoga for the first time, and benefitting from wonderful treatments, the food and beautiful setting was rejuvenating in itself. I met some lovely people, and came home feeling super-charged and ready to pick up the reigns of my busy life again.
