Sen Wellness Sanctuary | Tangalle | Netolpitiya | Sri Lanka

Rekawa Beach

Property Description

In keeping with their philosophy that nature is the best healer, the team has designed the Sen Wellness Sanctuary to function in harmony with its surroundings. It is located in a pristine National Park, with a protected turtle nesting beach as part of the premises.Soft golden sand and the energetic waves of the Indian Ocean make a dramatic backdrop for your place of retreat.  

Rooms and Cabanas

Quietly tucked away in Rekawa’s expansive lagoon nestles the Sanctuary’s beautiful accommodation. Suspended walkways, which allow wildlife to pass beneath, lead you to The Sanctuary’s low-key luxury thatched cabanas.  Sleeping up to 16 guests, 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 Cabanas

The luxury low key cabanas are an original design by Brazilian-American architect Adriana Arbex. They 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. The main building is also designed in a conical and circular shape which moves energy around in a manner that can be palpably felt by our guests.

Surrounded by mangroves, the lagoon and a glorious stretch of golden palm-fronted beach (also home to a magnificent turtle nesting site), the cabanas have been sensitively designed with respect to this natural environment and to protect the amazing wildlife. Sen Wellness Sanctuary natural project went through an Environmental Impact Assessment and was granted approval by the Sri Lankan government for mitigation of environmental damage. Everything is built on stilts to allow the flow of animal migration, no heavy machinery was employed in the development and all exteriors and interiors are of local craftsmanship using local materials, sensitive to the beautiful natural home of the Sanctuary.

The Bathrooms

The bathrooms are open to the elements so guests can experience a shower whilst star gazing. The rustic elegance of The Sanctuary’s en suite bathroom celebrates the skilful craftsmanship of local artisans using the very best of local materials.

Yoga Shala

An expansive space overlooking the lush treetops, our yoga shala accommodates up to 30 for yoga classes/group healing/dance and music workshops. The sea breeze naturally keeps the space refreshingly cool.

The Wellness Programs

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.
