Santani Wellness Resort & Spa in Sri Lanka

Designed from top to bottom to promote relaxation and contemplation, Santani Wellness Resort & Spa is nestled in the mountains of Sri Lanka. Named for the Sanskrit word meaning “in harmony with”, it is this hotel’s true belief that sustainable wellness begins by bringing oneself into balance with nature and by allowing ourselves to receive nurture from ourselves as well as from others. Guest accommodations are deliberately minimal, yet stylish and utterly comfortable. Premium amenities allow for luxurious comfort. To further support the efforts to ‘reset,’ guest rooms do not have televisions. While digital detox is a key component of the Santani experience, the hotel does offer in-room Wi-Fi on demand. These private retreats invite guests to rest, relax or meditate while inhaling the pure fresh air and taking in the pristine, truly inspiring backdrop around you.

The hotel has brought together the latest innovations in health science from around the world to harmonize with the most effective treatments among the rich heritage of Ayurveda in Sri Lanka. This is a place for true relaxation. The tri-level spa tucked into the hillside’s natural contours is Sri Lanka’s first full-fledged destination spa, with the first-ever comprehensive hydrotherapy facilities in the country. For those looking to explore the beautiful surroundings there are many excursions available –from the exciting and thrilling to the relaxed and calm. Why not try a quick hike across the riverto visit the Kukul Oya Waterfalls or visit the Galmaduwa Temple. Golf lovers can tee off at Victoria Golf Club, Sri Lanka’s most scenic golf course. It is an award-winning Donald Steel designed masterpiece sprawled among the hills and bordering the Victoria reservoir. There is something to do for everyone. When hunger strikes, whether you like juicing, vegetarian, vegan and raw foods or if you simply prefer heartier traditional cuisine, Santani offers you variety of choices which are yours to make among our nutritious and delicious food served.

How can one tell the difference between an excellent hotel and an outstanding hotel? The answer, a management which listens and constantly adapts to the requests and suggestions of its customers. This is the case of Santani. Every remark that I made was immediately taken into consideration. They even changed a light poste on the road because it was shining into our room. Customer suggestions: Order the Western Food because it is amazing. The organic wine was of good quality. Do the knuckles excursion. We had a very good guide. In addition, do go see the Tooth Temple in Kandy. The rooms are not sound proof so speak softly in order to respect the peacefulness of the hotel. Management suggestions for improvement: (1) a cocktail list would be nice; (2) on our last night the Chef was absent and unfortunately the quality of the food was not the same (my white fish was so over cooked that I did not eat it).

My wife and I had the most fabulous stay at Santani, which was the last stop during our 2.5-week honeymoon in Sri Lanka. After our first day at the resort, we decided that we never wanted to leave because we had discovered paradise on earth! The service was exceptional, the food was superb and the rooms were beautiful. Enjoying a cup of cofee from the balcony at sunrise was a memory I'll never forget. The spa and the yoga classes were also highlights. The staff, headed by Chamindra, were the most welcoming hosts. By the end of our stay, it felt like we were saying goodbye to friends. We had originally thought that our travels to Sri Lanka would be a once-off but Santani has changed our future plans and we are already plotting our return! Chamindra and Team, thanks for one of the best experiences of our lives!

My partner and I spent 5 glorious days here as our first introduction to Sri Lanka. I am so grateful it was out first stop in our 2week adventure. Yes, we were cocooned in the beauty and nurturing of this truly remarkable 5-star property but at the same time provided access to the authentic Sri Lankan culture Walks with a guide are offered - take them You will gain a true insight into everyday life. There is a genuine pride amongst Sri Lanka's that makes this an extremely comfortable country to navigate. Hassle and badgering is no part of it. Back to Santani. Unique welcome, accommodation designed to fill the senses, cuisine that equals that found in the best world gourmet restaurants, an award-winning spa and beautiful beautiful people all genially wanting to ensure your stay is the best it can be. And it was. We applaud your concept, your commitment to the environment, your contributions to your overall community and your ongoing service to ensure the best guest experience. Thank you

Santani is a quaint wellness retreat. The rooms all have a spectacular view of the mountains with a minimalistic design. Staff here are very friendly and quite attentive. Each meal is taken into careful condition based on your requirements. They also have a great spa service. With an extensive menu of massages, you can also enjoy a sauna, steam room and a thermal salt water bath. The pool overlooks a fabulous view. They also have yoga and pilate sessions here every morning and evening. A go-to place for a stress-free detox relaxing holiday.
