Daily Rhythm

Daily Rhythm

A typical day the Sanctuary way

Our Sanctuary revolves around Ayurvedic principles and in Sanskrit the daily routine is known as dinacharya, literally ‘to be close to the day’, meaning to be in touch with the rhythms of nature and the cycles of the earth, moon and sun.

The Sanctuary’s daily routine provides a structure to support your system in returning to balance and harmony; regulating your biological rhythms, metabolism, hormonal balance, mood and contributing to wellbeing and longevity. And your stay will equip you with a treasure trove of self-care practices you can integrate into your life back home for greater harmony and happiness.

  • As dawn begins to break, a delicious cup of herbal tea is delivered to your door, supporting you to wake up ready for a new day
  • The morning yoga session from 06:00 - 07:30 is energising and revitalising, helping you set a positive foundation for your day ahead
  • Guests often like to go for a refreshing post-yoga swim* or walk along the beautiful beach with its expansive views
  • 08:30 is the time for a refreshing king coconut and hearty breakfast
  • Between 09:30 - 13:00 it’s time for your customised programme of Ayurvedic treatments, resting, exploring or enjoying the space to simply be
  • At 13:00 a delicious, freshly prepared lunch is served for you to enjoy
  • 14:00 - 17:00 is another window for Ayurvedic treatments and luxuriating as you wish. We also have a weekly schedule of activities you are welcome to join, including lagoon boat rides, cooking demonstrations, Ayurvedic talks, and trips to a local market and a Buddhist temple with breathtaking views
  • Evening yoga from 17:00 - 18:30 calls for gentler movement and a chance to go deeper into meditation, mantra chanting and a long relaxation, often with the healing vibrations of the gong. As dusk falls over the yoga shala, fireflies begin to twinkle in the night sky, signaling another beautiful day drawing to a close
  • At 19:00 a fresh, light and delicious dinner is served. We share all our meals around a communal table so it’s a great opportunity to chat with other guests and share experiences from the day
  • 20:00 is time to start preparing for sleep, heading to bed early to allow for deep full-body and mind restoration. We wish you sweet dreams!

* The current is too strong to swim directly on our doorstep, but a picturesque, 25 minute walk along Rekawa Beach will take you to a rock pool where it is safe to swim. We are also happy to organise a tuk-tuk to take you there and bring you back in time for breakfast each morning.

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
