Yoga Retreat (5-nghts): About the Sen Wellness Sanctuary

The Sanctuary is the inspiration of Sri Lankan-born Sam Kankanamage, founder of London’s Breath of Life holistic healthcare clinic. Set in a nature reserve on Rekawa beach, the south-facing aspect of the beach means that it is one of the few in Sri Lanka to get both sunsets and sunrises. It’s also deserted, apart from the fishermen & the turtle watchmen, employed to protect the local turtle population.
