They feed you all your meals (delicious homegrown/homemade food), schedule yoga and daily spa treatments and hold special ceremonies throughout the week. The staff go above and beyond to make your experience deep, meaningful and heartfelt. The sanctuary is located in a jungle so be prepared to be immersed in wildlife!

The faculties are stunning, comfortable and reasonably priced. Don’t miss an opportunity to come here!Melanie F.Melanie F.1711609773 ★★★★★ A wonderful stay!

I hope, I can return to this unique place one day.Sally E.Sally E.1707933557 ★★★★★ My stay at Sen Wellness was exhilarating, from the dramatic colours of the sunsets to the naughty monkeys bouncing on the roof of our yoga room then leaping into the jungle. Best of all was watching, after a sunset walk over the wide empty white beach, newly hatched turtles hurtling over the sand to the ocean beyond.

Highlights

Daily Rhythm at Sen Wellness Sanctuary

At our Sanctuary, we embrace the wisdom of Ayurveda, with our daily routine, known as “dinacharya” in Sanskrit, which translates to “being in harmony with the day.” This concept encourages attunement with the natural rhythms of the earth, moon, and sun.

Our Sanctuary’s structured routine supports your system in achieving balance and harmony by regulating your biological rhythms, metabolism, hormonal balance, and mood, thereby contributing to overall wellbeing and longevity. During your stay, you will acquire valuable self-care practices that can be integrated into your daily life for enhanced harmony and happiness.

Your day at the Sanctuary unfolds as follows:

  • As dawn breaks, a rejuvenating cup of herbal tea is delivered to your door, gently waking you up for the day ahead.
  • The morning yoga session from 06:00 – 07:30 is invigorating and revitalizing, establishing a positive foundation for the day.
  • Following yoga, guests often enjoy a refreshing swim* or a walk along the picturesque beach with its expansive views.
  • At 08:30, savor a revitalizing king coconut and a nutritious breakfast.
  • Between 09:30 – 13:00, engage in a personalized program of Ayurvedic treatments, relaxation, exploration, or simply taking the time to be present.
  • At 13:00, delight in a delicious, freshly prepared lunch.
  • From 14:00 – 17:00, indulge in additional Ayurvedic treatments and leisure activities. Our weekly schedule of optional activities includes lagoon boat rides, cooking demonstrations, Ayurvedic talks, and excursions to a local market and a Buddhist temple with stunning views.
  • The evening yoga session from 17:00 – 18:30 features gentler movement, providing opportunities for deeper meditation, mantra chanting, and extended relaxation, often accompanied by the healing vibrations of the gong. As dusk settles over the yoga shala, fireflies illuminate the night sky, marking the end of another beautiful day.
  • At 19:00, enjoy a fresh, light, and delectable dinner served around a communal table, fostering conversation and the sharing of experiences among guests.
  • At 20:00, begin preparing for a restorative night’s sleep by retiring to bed early, allowing for complete physical and mental restoration.
