Room Types

The low-key, yet luxurious, thatched cabanas of Sen Wellness are nestled in Rekawa’s expansive lagoon. Guests will tread along suspended walkways, peering at wildlife below, to twin or king-sized rooms with natural ventilation on the beach. The four double-story cabanas are encompassed by mangroves, the lagoon and the beautiful golden sands lined with palms. Each cabana has 8 rooms, with 4 rooms on each level. Bathrooms are open to the elements so guests can star gaze whilst enjoying a shower.


Whilst staying at Sen Wellness, you will be accommodated in one a low key en suite luxury cabana.  With only 8 rooms, the space is quiet and intimate. The thatched cabanas have been made by local artisans representing the excellent craftsmanship of southern Sri Lanka.  

Spa

Treatments offered at the Sen Wellness Sanctuary begin with a diagnostic consultation from the in-house Ayurvedic Doctor to determine your Doshas or body constitution. After the diagnosis, a course of daily treatments using unique oil and herbal medicine is tailormade to the individual.  These treatments include lots of oil-based massages (full body, head, shoulder, hand, foot), herbal pouches, body scrubs, steams, herbal inhalations, face masks and shirodhara. Ayurveda seeks to create balance and harmony, which can become disrupted by the stress of busy work lives. Through understanding your own unique dosha type, the treatment programme will assist you to centre and rebalance. 

Other beneficial sessions include a healing gong bath, meditation and additional sound healing sessions. 

Activities

Sen Wellness focuses on Kundalini yoga, the yoga of awareness. Kundalini yoga is very accessible and classes are open to all levels, but private yoga sessions are also available. Other group experiences include group healing, dance and music workshops.

If you would like to venture into the surrounding area, you may take a lagoon safari, visit a sacred temple, go turtle watching or try a cooking master class. For an additional fee, guests may participate in watersports or embark on a whale watching excursion.

"I would thoroughly recommend Healing Holidays. They made the process of booking a holiday very easy - from understanding exactly what it was I was looking for and immediately being able to suggest some suitable places, to then sorting all of the arrangements so that all I had to do was print my documentation. I would definitely use them again."
