Testimonials

What a special place!! I had an unforgettable week at the sanctuary. Filled with relaxing treatments, friendly faces and the most nourishing food. Also loved the nearby rock pool and watching the turtles nest their eggs on the beach in the early mornings. Truly recommended!

Overall was a great 2 weeks staying at Sen Wellness, where we reached the goals that were defined - clean the mind, loose weight and starting to get back in shape. We'll be back.

What an amazing experience. Everything was above and beyond- treatments, service, staff, hosts, doctors. I thoroughly enjoyed my 7 night stay in a private cabana with amazing meals. The excursions were great and everything flowed so well. I highly recommend if your just looking for a place to relax, if you have a health issue or stress to deal with. Thank you to Sen, I look forward to coming back again.

Sen Wellness Sanctuary is a true oasis for wellness, relaxation, detox and a culinary heaven. We were pampered from check-in to check-out. The staff was always friendly, the treatments were amazing, the beds were so comfy and everything was very clean. The food was amazing: so tasty and fresh. I was looking forward to yoga on the beach or gong meditation daily as it was the best thing to start or end your day. I would recommend staying at least 7 - 10 days, since 5 days are waaaay to short. There is nothing that I didn't like about this place!

This was one of the most uplifting experiences of my life. Everyone was so kind and considerate, nothing was too much trouble. The team are so knowledgeable, catering for your own personal needs. The surroundings are idyllic and food great. I came away after a 12 day stayfeeling like a new woman, totally re-energised both physically and mentally. Just wonderful!!

A stay in the Sanctuary was a wonderful experience in every respect (renewal for the body, mind and balance of emotions). For 10 days fantastic and professional people took care of us: Ayurveda treatments, delicious and healthy food, daily yoga and meditation. Fantastic yoga teachers (Kundalini, Yin and Vinyasa) and the wonderful Dr. Sam (bioenergy therapy, acupuncture). The area is ideal for retreatment (nature, peace and quiet). This is a place worth returning to - we will definitely be back next year, especially since we need to check how the mango trees planted by us on the lagoon grow
