At Sen Wellness Sanctuary we are always delighted and grateful when we receive glowing endorsements from renowned and respected blogs such as Queen of Retreats.

Sen Wellness Sanctuary is a stylish and friendly holistic wellness retreat open all year round near a stunning and remote beach on Sri Lanka’s south coast. Its talented founder, London-based osteopath Sam Kankanamage, is in residence there four months of the year or you can catch him this September when his team brings their mind, body, spirit experience to a gorgeous estate in Yorkshire for an exclusive 3-night weekend retreat, Embracing Intuition.

Tap into your intuition at a luxury estate in Yorkshire

13 to 16 September 2018: Embracing Intuition – Connecting to Your Inner Wisdom takes place at the gorgeous Broughton Hall Estate in Yorkshire. Join Sam Kankanamage and Mary Aver to discover how mindfulness and meditation can support living more authentically and help you trust your unconscious. Drawing on spiritual teachings and modern neuro science, sessions will explore intuition as an inspiring navigation tool that helps you connect to yourself and your inner wisdom. The 3-night retreat at Avalon, the brand new well-being centre at Broughton Hall, includes twice daily yoga, meditations and shamanic journeys, crystal bowl baths and sound healing, wild swimming, a fire ceremony and cranial osteopathy with Sam.

What did our reviewer think about Sen Wellness?

Queen of Retreats reviewer Elizabeth Bennett had a much needed break from normality at Sen Wellness on a Spring Awakening Retreat. She says: ‘What sets Sen’s Signature Retreats apart are the one-to-ones. I had an enlightening chat with the local Buddhist monk about living in the present, a breakthrough meditation moment with the yoga teacher as she told me ‘to relax my mind like a muscle’, and osteopathy with Sam which felt more like therapy.´ Read Elizabeth’s personal review.

I have just completed a 10 day retreat at Sen Wellness and having researched many options, I was drawn to this but it was way beyond my expectations, it was amazing. The yoga by Frances and the monk was incredible, the doctors were kind and helpful and all the staff could not have been more helpful. Special mention to treatments from Tanisha and the manager Sanath who got me out on the beach one evening to see the mother turtles. A dream come true in so many ways, left feeling refreshed,so much healthier in body and mind!! I would highly recommend to anyone who needs a reset.

There is a beautiful beach for long nice walks and you also can see turtles.Meditation and Yoga were very also so good as were the ayurvedic treatments. I love it.The Signature Retreat led by Sam is a great, inspiring journey in itself - I can highly recommend.The ayurvedic food was delicious and the staff is great.I hope to go soon again to this wonderful place.Mandy thanks to Sam and his team at Sen Wellness Sanctuary.

One of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had in my life. The 10-day retreat is the ultimate in relaxation. 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! Monkeys, reptiles of all kinds, turtles on the beach, eagles/birds and more! I stumbled across this place researching Sri Lanka and it was truly meant to be. The faculties are stunning, comfortable and reasonably priced. Don’t miss an opportunity to come here!

I had really nice experience at Sen Wellness for 8 nights. Here is in the middle of nature, we can feel that we are a part of nature and it is very natural to live with all kinds of animals and plants. I am now mentally and physically fit.What I really appreciated is food - healthy, everyday different menu, some vegetables that I have never seen… I felt that my feeling of taste transformed through my stay and skin condition and body condition became better.All people here is really kind and peaceful.Yoga teacher, Stefania, is a wonderful teacher, she is really knowledgeable and so kind to care all participants. I had enjoyed conversations with her at breakfast, lunch and dinner.Doctors, therapists are nice, I could ask questions and request whatever I feel comfortable.There are different types of rooms, I experienced the most luxury cabana and eco-cabana with Air Conditioning, too. Luxury cabana was awesome but I liked eco-cabana as well. It was an old facility but authentic, compact and I felt cozy. I was alone in the room so the space was enough for single use. If you wish to have luxury stay, I would recommend you to go for Luxury cabana.Everyone has different purpose and expectations. My purpose was feel nature, have simple life and feel appreciation of life. And it was fulfilled. Thank you so much for all Sen wellness team.

Went to Sen Wellness with family for a retreat, it was a nice spiritual and healthy experience. Fantastic team who were friendly and did everything possible to make it us feel special, great doctors and therapists and of course the daily yoga and one on one interaction with Sam was icing on the cake. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a great mix of spirituality, yoga, treatment and healthy eating. Look forward to my next one at Sen Wellness.

Sen Wellness is the perfect place to go to when you are exhausted by life and need a rest to get back to yourself and work through any difficulties you may be experiencing.There’s lovely yoga and meditation classes every day plus a set schedule which is a great way to structure your day of rest alongside tailored Ayurvedic treatments and healthy food.The place is for me perfect but it’s not like a 5 star hotel so if that’s what you are looking for it may be the wrong place for you.If you are lucky you’ll see some turtles as well.Samath and Francis are great managers and will make sure everything goes well.

I was fortunate to lead a yoga retreat in early February of 2024. Everything was absolutely spectacular. Sen is a very special place with a beautiful energy that is perfect for retreat and healing.What really makes Sen so special are the people. Every single one of the staff members as well as the ayurveda doctors and all the managers were so kind and always trying to make each experience special. The entire team was led by Sanath and Frances and they were both absolutely wonderful. I can't possibly find enough kind words for both of them. Their leadership and warmth really allowed me to lead the retreat in the best way I could and they were always there for me whenever I needed. Thank you!
