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 river to 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.

Reviews for Santani Wellness Resort & Spa
My wife and I spent 3 memorable nights at Santani Resorts and SPA. Beside the 360 degrees magnificent view, excellent service and resort concept there was a person to appreciate his efforts in maintaining a superior hospitality standards; Mr. Mahesh the F&B-Operations manager. He was always meeting us and greeting us with his lovely smile. We are not going to be completely fair without mentioning the amazing Chef Wajira an expert in Gastronomy; in our opinion he is the best fine dining chef in whole Srilanka! This is our second time in Srilanka for 2017, and amongst 6 other 5 stars rated hotels we tried, we adored and loved the western food offered by Chef Wajira. A chef who prepare his food with love to impress us in every plate on our table as if it is a piece of art. Our trip was not to be fulfilled without trying their awesome SPA facility. We are impressed by the tranquillity, romantic atmosphere and the Santani unique concept itself. Our advise to any one seeking something so special in Srilanka is to spend a couple of nights there-worth trying surely.
Santani is a definite game changer for the rest and wellness industry in Srilanka . The rooms offer wonderful views , the spa not only stands out for it's amazing treatments but for it's architecture. The food is outstanding. Taste, quality, variety and the ability to accommodate each ones personal preference makes dinning an absolute pleasure . Chef Vajira and Mahesh deserve a special mention. The staff are committed and well trained and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable but if there is one compliant it would be the heat generated during the day that makes it a bit uncomfortable. Our stay was too short ! You need a minimum of 5 to 7 days to make the most of this place.. will be back soon.
Except location , everything in this hotel is amazing and unforgettable. Service is great , Rooms have a magnificent views , Nature is all around , Serenity , quietness, Food , Hotel amenities ..... all are WOW Except location , which is 45 mins away from Kandy . To stay in this hotel you need to plan it in away that you stay the whole day in this hotel . all meals are prepared by a professional chief who makes your stay such an amazing one.

We spent 3 nights at the Santani Wellness Resort & Spa as part of our honeymoon and it was the most idyllic, peaceful, serene, stunning and relaxing stop we could have hoped for. In the stunning hills outside Kandy, the beauty, peace and quiet were a complete treat and breath-taking, the pool divine, and the food, spa, hospitality and care of all of those looking after us exceptional. Thank you so much and we couldn't recommend this highly enough.

At last, a luxury yoga retreat of flawless international standards. I've visited Santani twice since it opened last year and couldn't rate it higher. The rooms have the most spectacular views of the mountains, comfortable beds, amenities etc, staff are very efficient and professional. The spa has a good selection of Ayurvedic treatments and the on site doctor is easy to talk to and informative, with perfect English. The #1 highlight of my trip however was the food. I think it must be the most innovative and inspiring in Sri Lanka, using fresh local ingredients in a completely unique way. Even the healthier dishes unbelievably good. I tried the aerial yoga which was a memorable experience too. Thank you Santani for a fabulous stay.
