Nestled in the beautiful misty mountains above Kandy, this property is a unique escape, with a focus on sustainability, personal health and rejuvenation.
Created in this pristine location, with the knowledge that people heal and thrive more effectively in nature, Santani is a stunning restorative spa, blissfully secluded, so guests can relax in the tranquillity of the lush surroundings.
A customised wellness package can be created on arrival with your dedicated professional, designed towards reaching your goals. Whilst a precise schedule can be provided, spontaneity is encouraged... if you wake early, you might opt for a morning meditation, whilst another day might see you winding down with an evening yoga session. It’s all about leaving behind your stresses and taking a natural, flexible pace.
Split over three levels, the spa is set within the contours of the hills, thoughtfully designed to embrace the setting, with many treatment areas opening out onto the paddy fields. Using the latest innovations in health science from around the world, alongside the rich heritage of Ayurveda in Sri Lanka, this is an award-winning experience, with deserved recognition from brands including Vogue, Tatler and Forbes.
The 16 Mountain View Chalets are stylish, yet deliberately minimalistic, with the lack of distraction allowing the mind to benefit too from a ‘digital detox’ – in room wi-fi can be arranged if required. In addition, there are 4 larger Garden View Chalets, suitable for families with older children. Built for natural ventilation, the lack of air-conditioning means the air is pure and fresh – healthier for both guests and the environment.
When it comes to cuisine, again you’ll find a personalised approach, with internationally trained chefs preparing healthy dishes, served in the elevated restaurant. From vegan and raw foods, to hearty traditional fayre, meals are equally delicious and imaginatively presented. The open-air pavilion lounge is another spot to enjoy a glass biodynamic wine and fresh juices.
There is lots to explore nearby too and the concierge can arrange trips such as river walks, bird watching, mountain biking and golf, plus trips to Kandy, Bambaragala Cave Temple and more.
At Santani, your body is indeed a temple, which will be pampered. We believe this is the perfect place to embark on a journey of well-being and can’t wait to take you there.
